@ScientistSmithYT Or you could get all your stuff together and write a coherent question on the EE site. You are much more likely to get a good answer there.
Or voted to oblivion if your question is poorly written, incoherent, vague, or incomplete. Whatever.

@JRE I've asked well thought out, planed and everything needed to answer the question, as well as being direct as possible with certain questions. And people just don't seem to get it when they rate the question poorly. Or there ego for thinking something is too dangerous. Then they decide to downvote the living carp out of it. So I'm kind of done asking very important questions like these on the main site. Because I do NOT need a cheap ton of downvotes, I need ANSWERS.
@JRE It's almost as if the too vague portion is used on whatever they want it to be used on and whenever they want. NOT where it is needed or supposed to be used. So I don't believe in that system of judgement. Because it's very poor judgement. If that changes I'll reconsider. But until then I'm NEVER going to post such an important question like this one on the main site. Even though it might help a lot with other peoples problems.
@JRE If the question wasn't super important lime this one, I'll ask it. But recently I've not come across non important questions to ask.
@JRE I want to post it on the main site. But the facts of the bad judgement system overwhelms the want to post it there. So until that changes, I'll never post one of these types of questions there.
Some of these questions I've found the answer to and others I haven't still.
 
JRE
@ScientistSmithYT Then good luck getting answers.

@ScientistSmithYT Snork
For the precision circuit breakers.

@ScientistSmithYT Split phase is common in the US, almost universal for 120VAC home power. Is is used because of its advantages in reducing the number of wires used in the building, not because of "power availability."
 
By the way, "persay" can be corrected the more appropriate spelling, "per se". @ScientistSmithYT.

@ScientistSmithYT I'm intrigued, I haven't seen a precision circuit breaker. I've seen some low-voltage (480V 3-phase 1,000A) distribution breakers from Eaton that were computerized with adjustable thresholds, but nothing in the 120V-240V range.

What do you think about electrical/electronics engineering questions being on topic on TWO SE sites? I was told yesterday that it was on-topic at https://engineering.stackexchange.com.
My comment and response was deleted.
 
@MikeWaters There's no rule against two sites having overlapping on topic areas.
There are a lot of questions that would be on topic at either EE or Physics, for example.
@MikeWaters If you'r asking about power distribution, it might be on topic at either EE or Engineering. You might even get better answers at Engineering.
 
@ThePhoton I thought that it might make it difficult for a person to find answers if they weren't aware of both sites.

Q: Our Scope (and Overlaps with Sister Sites)

Dave CoffmanThis question arises in part from my first question (since deleted). I realized while asking this that perhaps it had already been asked at Aviation Stack Exchange. While they do indeed have an "aircraft design" tag, I thought that this site is a better home for my question, as it is less about...

(question on meta.engineering)
You can always point out in a comment that the other site is available (with a note to discourage cross-posting). I do that fairly often for questions on EE that might get better answers on Physics, DSP, StackOverflow, etc.
 
3:59 PM
@MikeWaters If they're not off-topic, then they don't need to be migrated. If it's a boundary area of the community (e.g. few users with that expertise) and there is another site that would service that question much better, then it is a good candidate for migration.
 
4:46 PM
@Marla Thanks
@JRE That's its advantage. Not its primary use. It's primary use is for power availability. This is according to Utah's leading power experts at Rocky Mountain power.
@JRE I'm pretty sure if some are willing to answer my question, it can be answerwr here. I just need to show everything.
@W5VO The main reson why you've probably not seen one at 125-240 VAC is probably because I had mine custom made. Like I said, I didn't just pick one up at a store.
 
Now I'm immediately suspicious :)
 
@ScientistSmithYT A publicly available document from a power company is likely written for their customers, who aren't expected to have any particular engineering education, or any particular engineering use for the information. It's entirely likely it's a simplified explanation for that audience, not useful information for engineering use.
 
Why suspicious? They can be made.
 
5:12 PM
I'm suspicious because it's something that you had custom made
 
JRE
5:32 PM
@ScientistSmithYT With everything about your transformer problem splattered over the last few days here in chat, I for one won't be making an effort to organize it all and provide a coherent answer.
I think the answer is in that link to a question and answer pair that I linked to. That, and the fact you aren't measuring the primary current.

Thanks. I hear you, but in this particular case I am not so sure. I thought that it might make it difficult for a person to find answers if they weren't aware of both sites. IMHO, it makes sense to limit engineering to things like mechanical, hydraulic, FEA, structural, civil, etc.
Go take a look at many of the questions here. "Identically similar" to many questions asked on EE. ;-)
But I'm neither a CM nor a moderator on either of those sites. ;-)
 
8:02 PM
@MikeWaters . . As an electrical engineer, I have had to learn and apply science in the fields of mechanical, thermal, physics, chemistry, and on and on. I suspect that most experienced BSEE degree people have done the same. Borders in science, applied and theoretical are very blurred.
 
8:39 PM
@Marla Likewise. But not every question is from an experienced BSEE with talents in multiple fields.
 
8:55 PM
was thinking today about scientific evidence
and how correlations studies don't have evidence, right?
they have "correlational evidence"?
...because scientific experiments (all variables are controlled but one) is the only thing that has evidence...
 
@adamaero That's really not true.
 
You might want to research the term Design of Experiments.
 
ya, I get that
 
JRE
 
8:59 PM
It's all about how you can vary multiple parameters per sample, and still be able to use the results to see how each parameter affects the result individually.
 
I'm really just trying to find a word for the conclusions of non-experimental studies
 
@adamaero "observations"
 
=D
 
or "anecdotes"
 
JRE
A correlation alone just says "hey, this might be interesting." Then, you look and see if one factor causes the other, or if some other factor drives both of your correlated factors - or if it is just coincidence.
 
9:03 PM
Ok, great.
Thanks.
...this is like a weed out question in retrospect...
 
9:23 PM
correlation does not imply causation
 
9:36 PM
yes, but understanding that all studies aren't experiments is hard for some to wrap their head around...probably mostly due to crap news...
...throwing "proof" around...
 
10:16 PM
Must be an audio question if they use the phrase "pimped alice" electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/459531/…
