2020-09-03 Distributed Generation And Islanding

There is a lot of concern for safety when DGs (distributed generators) are connected to the power grid. The grid operators must ensure that none of the DGs feed back into the grid when the grid generator is not operating. They go through several scenarios in this article. https://electrical-engineering-portal.com/protection-impacts-intentional-islanding-distributed-generation From what I see the DG

2020-05-28 Solid State Shortwave RF Preselector

Comment left 2020 May 29 on YouTube video in the title. This video covers MOSFET, dual gate MOSFET, JFET and BJT tuned preamps (preselectors) for his shortwave crystal radio. “The talk about using 18 volts for the cascode got me thinking about tube designs. When the plates need 100+V, and when the heater to cathode

2018-06-28 Bootstrapped For High Z Input

From FB group Building Transistor Radios For those who don’t want to or can’t use a JFET for high input impedance, you can use a regular transistor or two and bootstrapping to get a 10 Megohm high input impedance amplifier. This is from “Common Collector Amplifiers”, Electronics Now, Oct. 1993, found at americanradiohistory.com. For RFs,

2017-08-07 Protoboards And Bypass Capacitors

From FB post One important thing that people forget to do is consider what might happen with a circuit that has anything that draws power from the protoboard. If you’re working with a few low power devices such as small LEDs and switches, then there is usually not a problem. But if you have a
