From Short-Circuit Currents

3.1 General

In general, equipment in power systems are represented by equivalent circuits, which are designed for the individual tasks of power system analysis, e.g., for the calculation of no-load current and the no-load reactive power of a transformer, the no-load equivalent circuit is sufficient. Regarding the calculation of short-circuits, voltage drops and load characteristic a different equivalent circuit is required. The individual components of the equivalent circuits are resistance, inductive and capacitive reactance (reactor and capacitor), voltage source and ideal transformer. Voltage and currents of the individual components and of the equivalent circuit are interlaced by Ohm's law, which is valid for the three-phase system (RYB-system) as well as for the system of symmetrical components (012-system). A detailed deduction of the mathematical methods and equations is not given within the context of this section of the book, but only the final equations are quoted.

3.2 Equipment in a.c. systems

3.2.1 General

Impedances of equipment are calculated based on name plate data, from manufacturer's data or from geometrical arrangement. For the calculation of impedances of generators, power plants, step-up and step-down transformers, correction factors are necessary. The calculation equations as per Tables 3.1 3.11 are...

Products & Services
Spray Painting Equipment (Paint Sprayers)
Paint spraying equipment and paint sprayers are used to atomize and propel a concentrated mist of a finish coating onto a surface. This includes the equipment used to directly apply the spray coating, as well as a variety of supporting equipment to optimize the painting process.
Painting, Coating, and Finishing System Integrators
Painting, coating and finishing system integrators provide finishing lines, turnkey coating machines and large-scale systems for production finishing operations. Typically, finishing lines are designed to OEM requirements and are installed on site.
Coating and Spray Booths
Coating and spray booths are enclosures used to contain spray coating processes such as painting, powder coating, thermal spraying, and other deposition methods. This category includes hoods, cabinets, tunnels and similar enclosures
Architectural Coatings
Architectural coatings include paints, sealers, and specialty coatings for floors, roofs, walls, ceilings, decks, pavement, walkways, concrete surfaces, and other building and construction applications.
Sprayers and Spray Coating Equipment

Sprayers and spray coating equipment refers to any component used in a variety of industrial spraying processes, including application tools, handling equipment, and supplemental machines. They are used in the process of atomizing coatings, paints, lubricants, solvents, deicing liquids, chemicals, and powders so they can be spray-applied to a surface.
