Demystifying Electromagnetics, Part 1 – Fields and Analogies
This blog series will strive to demystify (low frequency) EM by way of pictures and analogies, with as few equations as possible, by introducing a series of applications of increasing complexity. In this first blog we’ll and start to look into the electric field with the use of some analogies.
Thermal Influence on Maximum Current Carrying Capacity
Superconductors aside, anything that conducts electricity will dissipate heat. The more current that flows, the more heat is dissipated, the hotter things will get. At some point a thermal limit is reached that imposes a maximum current carrying capacity constraint.
