    Episode 5 – Tomorrow Rising Web Series | Schneider Electric

    . – At the end of the training, I’d like to train other people, share my knowledge with them, and impact other electricians, females especially. And then I will also go on further to do a professional energy management course so I can become a professional energy manager myself. – I’m gonna be counting on you to go out there and make a lot of difference. Well done, really! – Thank you, sir. Here I am, almost at the end of my training. I think I’ve made a pretty good impression!

    Episode 4 – Tomorrow Rising Web Series | Schneider Electric

    . My name is Yéyé. I live in Lagos, Nigeria. I’m learning electrical engineering and on my first day, I was given this curious headset. Through this device, I’m strangely connected to other people all over the world.  I can see their daily life and talk with them. Together we intend to build a better tomorrow. – In a three-phase system, the active power is equal to voltage U x intensity I x √3 x cos phi Did you know that our body produces electricity? Actually, natural electric impulses are keeping you alive as they are simply responsible for the beatings of your heart! But the main electricity producer is…

    How Powerful Is Germany?

    Since the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago, Germany has established itself as Europe’s largest economy.

And how powerful is the country overall? Well, the short answer is they are very powerful, with some potentially growing weaknesses. For one thing, German may have to cut back on their military. They currently have the world’s 7th strongest military force, employing 183,000 active troops. That’s behind other European countries like France and the UK, and quite a ways…

    Why don’t perpetual motion machines ever work? – Netta Schramm

    Around 1159 A.D., a mathematician called Bhaskara the Learned sketched a design for a wheel containing curved reservoirs of mercury. He reasoned that as the wheels spun, the mercury would flow to the bottom of each reservoir, leaving one side of the wheel perpetually heavier than the other. The imbalance would keep the wheel turning forever. Bhaskara’s drawing was one of the earliest designs for a perpetual motion machine, a device that can do work indefinitely without any external energy source. Imagine a windmill that produced the breeze it needed to keep rotating. Or a lightbulb whose glow provided its own electricity. These devices have captured many inventors’ imaginations because…
