    Dear Engr. Jigesh,
    your work is highly commendable. You have covered all facets of Electrical Engineering & Technology.
    I would like to have some wiring circuits/schematic diagrams of Power transformer tests like Power frequency voltage withstand test, induced voltage ,no load loss/ loaded loss measurements and temperature rise tests.
    Thanks
