Air Gap

In this blog we will review the theory of the Air gaps in magnetic circuits. A magnetic circuit is where a magnetic flux is circulated or follow through a closed area or path. An air gap is a non-magnetic part of a magnetic circuits and it is usually connected magnetically in series with the rest of the circuit. This allows a substantial part of the magnetic flux flows through the gap.

Divider Circuits

In this blog we will review the theory of the Current Divider circuits in a parallel circuit. In a parallel circuit, all the components have their terminals connected together sharing the same two end nodes. This results in different paths and branches for the current to flow or pass along. However, the currents can have different values through each component but the voltage remains the same across two end nodes.

a man and woman look at a machine

In a 2018 study by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute it was predicted that by 2028 there would be in excess of two million unfilled positions in manufacturing—a deficit created by what is being called the “Manufacturing Skills Gap.”  The changing landscape of the manufacturing industry, paired with an outdated repu Read More

Since March, the GBCTechTraining team has seen a number of changes to our processes, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We have had to rethink the ways that a number of our resources are delivered, including how students access their program materials and documents.  Physical materials and documents can no longer be sent out due to the closure of GBC’s physical location and mail room—so we have had to take these materials fully digital!  Here a

A basic illustration of Power Transfer

In this blog we will review the maximum amount of power transferred from a source to a load. Sometimes efficiency, in a circuit, is not the essential/key parameter. We will often overlook how inefficient a special purpose circuit may be in cases where we want it to perform a specific task.
