A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part Two

Maxwell’s Equations are eloquently simple yet excruciatingly complex. Their first statement by James Clerk Maxwell in 1864 heralded the beginning of the age of radio and, one could argue, the age of modern electronics.

Description*

IEC 62811:2015 specifies performance requirements for electronic controlgear for use on a.c. and/or d.c. supplies up to 1 000 V and/or a.c. supplies up to 1 000 V at 50 Hz or 60 Hz, associated with discharge lamps, as specified in IEC 61167, which have information for low frequency square wave operation, where the frequency range of the low frequency is from 70 Hz to 400 Hz.”
