Very funny Ad for ...

It may at first be difficult to see what this video has to do with Power Electronics, but anyone who watches this should be amused.    2:03    YouTube

Transistor (bipolar) - How it works!

This 3D animation in English explains the inner workings of a bipolar transistor with base, collector, and emitter.    4:56    YouTube

Peculiarities of Thermistors

The word thermistor means a thermal resistor, that is, a device the resistance of which changes depending on the temperature.    2:41    YouTube

Induction Motor - How it works

This is the basic principle of how induction motors work. There is a lot more to say about motors, but the basic theory is this one!    2:22    YouTube

Plasma Arc "speaker" using flyback transformer

This is a plasma arc speaker we built for an electronics project. After much tuning, we were able to achieve a refined, clean, and loud sound from the arc.    0:49    YouTube

Paper Circuit!

Graphite is a pretty terrible electric conductor but it works well enough to do some cool stuff with paper. We can actually make a fully working circuit as well as a flashlight.    3:55    YouTube

How To Test A Silicon Diode - Electronic Repair

How To Test A Silicon Diode and much much more. Amazingly clear and precise instructions from an electronics repair expert.    2:06    YouTube

480 volt 3-phase Arc Flash Demonstration

Here arcs were intentionally initiated by bridging wires across three copper bus bars in a testing laboratory. Three phase 480 volt power was then applied across the bus bars for about 1 second.    0:30    YouTube

Microwave oven High Current Transformer

2 MOTs connected in series. Each transformer has 2 coils made of a 10 mm welder wire (28 mm2 of copper). Output voltage 3 V, input voltage 240 V 50 Hz.    1:02    YouTube

Ice Storm Electrical Arcing

How my house lost power - lots of kaboom!   0:36    YouTube

Prototype capacitor bank

Quick and dirty setup I put together in one evening. 10750µF capacitor bank charged to 1900V - Total number of caps: 52 - Energy: 19300J.   0:54    YouTube

Simple NPN Transistor IC

This video demonstrates how to use a transistor to amplify electronic signal. By touching the two wires the LED lights up using the current running through your body.    0:55    YouTube

How and WHY to Solder Correctly

Close up demonstrations of proper soldering technique. This video explains flux, temperature, tip size / shape.

Transistor / MOSFET tutorial

How to use an N channel MOSFET to turn anything on and off. Also, remember to put a 100k resistor between gate and ground if you want your FET to stay off by default!     4:50    YouTube

Playing with Tesla Coil

This is very stupid and dangerous. Just because some fool guy did this and put video to youtube doesn't mean that you should try this!     0:44    YouTube

Inductor Basics

The basics of how inductors work, a demo showing an inductor filtering out high frequency signals, a quick low pass LC filter, and a demo showing the magnetic field created around inductors.     3:54     YouTube

Electrical Explosions and Arcing - Revised

Several spectacular examples the explosive force of high voltage power, including uncontrolled arcing at high voltage power substations and a controlled demonstration.     1:56     YouTube

Fun with Ultracapacitors!!

I got hold of some 2600F capacitors that can dump hundreds of amps. Normally these are used in electric cars to handle sudden stops and starts. Instead, I use them to vaporize bits of metal...     6:11     YouTube

Electronic Devices: Continuity Equation-1

The continuity equation is discussed and derived in this video. A description is given as to how the continuity equation is applied to semiconductor materials.     9:10     YouTube
