Fuse Unit

Fuse unit is used to control distribution feeders. Normally fuses are provided on all the three phases. This gives over current protection and short circuit protection. These fuses are commonly used in distribution transformers to protect the lines.

Fuse Unit

Above is a typical fuse unit mounted near a transformer. This provides protection and control of the lines. Technicians can remove the fuse to a particular line and carry out the maintenance works. Also this provides a protection for over current supply and short circuit current. Fuses will blow off during over current and short circuit current.

Fuses are made of porcelain and the conducting parts are copper. Graded alloy wires are used for re-wire able fuse links. Sometimes HRC fuses are used to link between terminals. Technicians use a hand gloves while handling these fuses. It is very convenient to test the supply by using line tester.

How to apply for entry level electrical engineering jobs

Entry level electrical engineering jobs are available in plenty and reserved for fresh Electrical engineers just out of their college. Students studying engineering must have an idea about the opportunities available in the job market. So they study with some sort of specific ambitions in mind. They undergo specialization and carry out projects in this specific subject where they want to grab a job. By the time they complete their degree they must have some idea about the job market. The campus interviews and recruitments are carried out by some large firms. Small firms arrange interviews at their company premises to recruit entry level electrical engineering jobs.

There are some common interests shared by small and large organisations while recruiting for entry level electrical engineering jobs. The first thing is the basic knowledge a fresher possess on electrical engineering. The second thing is the IQ level of the candidate. Further a firm will look for physical capabilities, personality etc of the candidate while looking for recruits for entry level electrical engineering jobs.

A student who appear for or apply for entry level electrical engineering jobs must prepare a good bio-data (resume) that contain all their positive points. This resume must be prepared with the help of your teachers and parents. To get help from elders is important because they know how your resume appear before an employer who recruit for entry level electrical engineering jobs. It is also very important to add the specific projects you have done, industrial training you have undergone and part-time jobs you have attended. Also make sure to modify the resume at frequent intervals to add the expertise you have gained. I personally recommend for different resumes for different organisations. Please remember that the resume is the most probable starting point for an interview that select an entry level electrical engineering job.
