Rare footage from inside Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant’s control room shows the devastating aftermath of the infamous catastrophe The Chernobyl nuclear disaster saw a series of explosions and a subsequent fire at the fourth reactor, releasing radioactive fallout into the surrounding countryside More than eight million people were exposed to elevated levels of radiation as […]
I don’t have to control it, but I think it’s fun to control. I wish there was something to do, but there is nothing to do. In one month we generated as much power as we used during two months last year. It is a joy to see at the end of the month the […]

so today we have a solar light to show you it’s a floodlight from Richarm and it has 25 super-bright LEDs now this solar light comes with remote control that’s always handy to have with these things it has 25 LEDs to provide 300 lumens and it offers a 120 degree angle this right here […]
So here I have a user interface for a Hydro power plant, as you can see the simulation runs in real time, and I start to increase the speed of the turbine. So I will start to increase the nominal voltage reference, the excitation voltage will increase and the excitation current will increase as well […]
Epic fail! I should have said two hours, not half an hour!
This episode of Real Engineering is brought my new Moleskin style Graph Paper Notebook on sale now at the link below. Flying in a plane through turbulence can be a bit nerve wracking experience for some. Hearing that announcement bell ring followed by the pilot calmly saying that you are approaching “rough air”. You fasten […]
