Ok, here's a sample banner template: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Electrical Engineering/banner, which uses Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Electrical Engineering/banner/class and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Electrical Engineering/banner/importance; documentation at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Electrical Engineering/banner/doc. If we use this one, it will need to be moved to Template:WikiProject Electrical Engineering and Template:WikiProject Electrical Engineering/importance , Template:WikiProject Electrical Engineering/class , Template:WikiProject Electrical Engineering/doc respectively, and the redlinked categories will need to be created, along with the intersection of those categories. (talk) 08:45, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Nice ones, especially Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Electrical Engineering/banner, because electrical engineers know the importance of grounding. I've created a userbox. I hope its good. ShriRamTalk tome 09:04, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
looks good. I see you reduced the complexity of the banner. You (since an IP cannot create things) need to create the assessment categories (look at the banner page for a list of categories to create). I've done some initial tagging for a few high prominence pages. -- (talk) 18:35, 16 June 2012 (UTC) (my IP has rotated)
I'll have a look. But the process might go slow due to my exams! ShriRamTalk tome 18:37, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
Sure, no problem. Whenever you have time, or someone else joins who has an account. (talk) 18:41, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
In addition to the categories listed in the fix-me autonotices on the banner page, we also need the two parent categories Category:WikiProject Electrical Engineering articles by importance‎ and Category:WikiProject Electrical Engineering articles by quality, which categorize directly into Category:WikiProject Electrical Engineering. -- (talk) 18:52, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

How about a shortcut to the banner? WP:WPEENG -- (talk) 22:07, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi (or which other IP you are now using), Is it ok to delete the banner pages? Since we have now the {{WikiProject Electrical engineering}} template, it is unlikely that it will be used in the future. Kind Regards, SchreyP (messages) 16:56, 13 July 2012 (UTC)


How about WT:DOUBLE-E/WP:DOUBLE-E being shortcuts for this project? (talk page, main page) -- (talk) 08:52, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

EE, Eengg, ele engg would be fine. do you think double is req? ShriRamTalk tome 09:06, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
WP:EE and WP:WPEE is already in use. I suppose we could ask that WPP to let us have "WP:EE" or "WP:WPEE" instead. That's why I suggested "Double-E". WP:ELECENG/WP:EENG sound good. (talk) 18:38, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
I have rerouted the redirect of WP:ENGG to WikiProject Engineering, since Engg. is an abbreviation for Engineering, not just Electrical Engineering. So this could be confusing. But I have added WP:EEng, since EEng. seem to be also a common abbreviation for Electrical Engineering. Regards, SchreyP (messages) 12:24, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Missing access points[edit]

Something for the future: (talk) 18:56, 16 June 2012 (UTC)


I've been waiting for this to happen for a long time. Nczempin (talk) 15:27, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

You can sign your name onto the list on the front page. Or add {{User WikiProject Electrical engineering}} to your user page. (talk) 23:22, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Assessment table will not be updated for a while[edit]

Hi, the assessment table Electrical engineering articles by quality and importance will not be updated for a while due to toolserver replag. For background info see here. Regards, SchreyP (messages) 21:32, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Main article needs urgent work - Rated Start-class, Top-importance[edit]

The article Computer engineering which was assigned Top-importance by this WikiProject is rated as a Start-class article. What needs to be done to upgrade it? Ottawahitech (talk) 19:14, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

no load transformer[edit]

sir i have 3-phase tranformer with a input supply 11kv n it's capacity 1600 kva. if it's on no load so what's it's input transformer current.????

plz give me reply me as early as possible n with also formula bcz it's also apply for calculation. send me it's on my mail id — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:03, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Synchronous motor[edit]

This article is rated "high priority" by your project, but is currently the subject of an editing dispute because it is largely unsourced. The editor arguing for removing the content is technically in the right since this is a technical article and needs to be verifiable, but it would be a shame if good content was removed on that basis. I have tracked down some sources on Google Books preview which may be of use, but this isn't my area, and I would not feel comfortable adding references to an article where I am not familiar with the subject matter. If someone could spend an hour or two adding some sources to diffuse the situation it would be appreciated. Betty Logan (talk) 17:38, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Currently editing it. ShriRamTalk tome 07:56, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I hope now there are enough number of references to support the contents. If you find anything odd, do leave a note on the article's talk page or here. We will see what we can do. Thanks for the note. ShriRamTalk tome 07:33, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

I have taken the liberty of adding Metadyne to your project, since other electic motors seem to be included. I have rated it low importance, since it is old technology, and C-class, based on quite a lot of content and all carefully referenced. Feel free to re-assess if necessary.

AC/DC (electricity)[edit]

AC/DC (electricity) has been proposed to be renamed, see talk:AC/DC (electricity) -- (talk) 05:06, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Note: The page "AC/DC (electricity)" has been moved to AC/DC receiver design. --Guy Macon (talk) 23:56, 20 June 2013 (UTC)


The equations given for the number wavelet sets of coefficients does not look right. "For n levels of decomposition the WPD produces 2^n different sets of coefficients (or nodes) as opposed to (3n + 1) sets for the DWT. However, due to the downsampling process the overall number of coefficients is still the same and there is no redundancy."

2^n looks smaller than what it should be. also 3n+1 doens't work for DWT for 1D signal with 2levels. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:14, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Invitation to discussion on Alternator[edit]

I've started a vote on the separation of the Automotive alternators section to a new article, and how it would be separated. There seem to be a number of things that require work with this article, but I have put just this to vote for now, with other issues to be addressed at a later date.

Please see Separation of automotive alternators to new article for the discussion and vote. — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 13:50, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

It look like User:Andy Dingley did his usual fine job and created Alternator (automotive). --Guy Macon (talk) 17:57, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

NOJA Power Corporate Page[edit]

Hi, was wondering whether there is anyone in this talk who is interested in creating and editing NOJA Power's Corporate Wiki page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by JeremyDavis03 (talkcontribs) 06:52, 25 October 2013‎

This was cross posted to Wikipedia:Australian_Wikipedians'_notice_board/Archive_42#NOJA_Power_Corporate_Page, where it was resolved. Blue Rasberry (talk) 20:05, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

IEEE technical societies[edit]

If you are a member of one or more of the IEEE technical societies, you may wish to identify yourself as such on Wikipedia. I’ve created Wikipedian categories for each of the 38 IEEE technical societies. The new Template:User IEEE member creates a userbox identifying the society and your membership grade and includes your user page in the relevant Wikipedian category. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a note. Yours aye,  Buaidh  (IEEE Life Member) 17:28, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Article alerts?[edit]

Does this WikiProject have an alerts section (example)? XOttawahitech (talk) 16:30, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Project overlap[edit]

How is this project different from Wikipedia:WikiProject Electronics? ~KvnG 15:39, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Outline of electrical engineering has electronics as a sub field of electrical engineering. I don't agree with some of the divisions--signal processing and control theory have a big overlap with electronics, for instance. But I have always thought of large scale electrical power generation and distribution as something outside of electronics and in EE. --Mark viking (talk) 18:37, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
So any article in WP:ELECTRONICS should also be in this project? ~KvnG 14:54, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Kvng No, that would not be ideal. Electrical engineering excludes most concepts in the broader field of electronics. Electrical engineering is its own concept. Blue Rasberry (talk) 20:02, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
Does someone want to take a stab a clarifying the project's scope? Here's what's currently said, "The project generally considers any article related to Electrical engineering to be within its scope." ~KvnG 20:22, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/about Digital Power Inverter[edit]

Dear electrical experts: This old Afc submission is about to be deleted as a stale draft. Is this a notable topic? —Anne Delong (talk) 19:29, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

No, it's product-specific CSD-worthy spam Andy Dingley (talk) 20:42, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks; it should be gone shortly. —Anne Delong (talk) 18:24, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/ETAP[edit]

Hello again electrical experts. Here's another of those old drafts about to be deleted. Is there anything worth keeping? —Anne Delong (talk) 21:33, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Some of the content in the Wikipedia_talk:Articles_for_creation/ETAP#Need_for_Power_Systems_Analysis section may be useful to Electric power system, Fault (power engineering) or Power-flow study. Would be more useful if there were footnotes. ~KvnG 13:24, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Well, since you don't indicate that it is a worthwhile as a stand-alone article, I won't postpone its deletion now. If anyone does want to move a section to another article, any edit will postpone the deletion long enough to do the work, and then we can change this one into a redirect to maintain the attribution. —Anne Delong (talk) 20:04, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
I WP:BOLDly merged material potentially worth saving into Power-flow study. ~KvnG 16:25, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. To preserve the attribution, I moved the page to Power systems analysis and turned it into a redirect to Power-flow study. If you think there's a better title for the redirect, feel free to move it. —Anne Delong (talk) 01:32, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

New articles: Pseudocapacitance and Double-layer capacitance[edit]

Hello. A couple recent unreviewed articles for your consideration: Pseudocapacitance and Double-layer capacitance. Thank you. --Animalparty-- (talk) 17:18, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Notifying of relevant FAR[edit]

I have nominated Electrical engineering for a featured article review here. The reason for this is a serious lack of citations: much of the article is completely unreferenced. It would be great if someone knowledgeable in this area could improve the article and help it remain an FA. Thanks! --Loeba (talk) 20:16, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Kalahasti P PrasadI[edit]

Dear engineers: Hee's an old abandoned draft that was never submitted for inclusion in the encyclopedia, and now it is about to be deleted as a stale draft. Is this a notable professor? There isn't a Google scholar report, and the engineering college of which he was apparently head at one time, SVU College of Engineering, Sri Venkateswara University has a rather primitive web site ( .

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Bimal K. Bose[edit]

Hello, electrical engineers! Here's another one of those old abandoned Afc submissions. This appears to be a notable professor. The article needs some work though. Anyone interested in getting it ready for mainspace. —Anne Delong (talk) 18:58, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Raj Mittra[edit]

Dear engineering experts: This old Afc submission is about a very well-cited professor. It needs some references that are not from his university. Does anyone know where to look for these? I don't have access to academic journal databases. —Anne Delong (talk) 16:48, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

From IEEE Xplore I see that he edited the book Frontiers in Electromagnetics published in 2000 and received the 2006 IEEE Electromagnetics Award.
By the way, I believe anybody can search and get abstracts, but you have to pay for the full text.Constant314 (talk) 17:21, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks; I added that citation. —Anne Delong (talk) 18:35, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Another AfC submission - Rotating Armature Alternator[edit]

The AfC submission Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Rotating Armature Alternator seems to be about a specific historical powerhouse. Please could you offer opinions on whether this submission is useable as the basis of a mainspace article. It will obviously need plenty of work, for example rephrasing material like "Let the sub-phases be called..." However, would it be acceptable as a starting point? There seem to be numerous sources.

IEEE style[edit]

IEEE style is in dire need of improvement. As I haven't written any technical papers in a while, I don't remember the format too well. I think this article should have examples of the in-text citation and the accompanying bibliographic note, as well as explanations on how the bibliography is formatted, similar to other articles on styles. -- (talk) 05:23, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Torque ripple stub[edit]

Is it OK to just add the WikiProject template to a talk page if there isn't one, and it seems that the article is relevant to the scope of that Project, but the editor has no expertise in that field? I'm not an electrical engineer, but I ended up on the subject of torque ripple from DC motors, but there is only a single link pointing to the Torque ripple article, and it's very short. —Nelg (talk) 23:14, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes, this topic is within the scope of this project. Articles can be included in the project at any time. ~KvnG 13:14, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll go ahead and add the template. —Nelg (talk) 14:59, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Donation of images for electromagnetism articles[edit]

Simulated electric field around a printed inverted-F antenna.[1]
Multipaction within the gap inside a coaxial connector, driven by fields between the conductors. Color represents electron energy[2]

(Cross-posted to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Physics)

Hello everyone. I'm Stephen Murray, the Technical Writer for Computer Simulation Technology, who focus on electromagnetic simulation tools. One thing that we have recently realized is that we currently have quite a few example images/simulation models which illustrate devices and physical phenomena that Wikipedia doesn't currently have. Chiefly, these consist of various models of antennas, microwave filters and waveguide components, particle accelerator components and some nano-optical/photonic devices. We would like to donate images where we can in order to improve Wikipedia's coverage of these topics.

On the right are a couple of example pictures from our selection (illustrating microstrip antenna and multipactor effect respectively) - would these be helpful to the project? Because we have the simulation models, it would take relatively little effort on my end to adjust the angle of view or the field display. It's just a question of how to make these images as useful to the encyclopedia as possible. Any comments or suggestions would therefore be appreciated. Stephen Murray at CST (talk) 13:19, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
