Basic electrical definitions & terminology




This article will contain most of the electrical terms definitions which 

are essential to the proper application and understanding
 of Beginners' Electrical design course EE-1.

All electrical design engineers around the world are aware of these definitions they considered it as their own language in the world of electricity, if you aren’t familiar with this language, you will not be able to communicate with other citizens in electricity world. 




For simplicity, I will divide these definitions & terminology into categories, each category will include a complete glossary for one of the general materials used in electrical engineering field, like transformers, switchgear, .. Etc. 

Again, I emphasis that without awareness and understanding of these glossaries, you will not be able to go through this basic course and other advanced level courses ,which will commence after the end of this basic course.




So, please download all the files in this article and read it

 carefullyfor sure you will get a lot of information and experience. 



In below, you can find the most important material glossaries but please be informed that all Glossaries for all electrical materials will be uploaded to our free download library very soon, just keep following.
