## Electrical tools (MS Excel Spreadsheets)

This section is dedicated to tools **every electrical engineer can use in daily work**. These spreadsheets below will make your job much more easier, alowing you to shorten the time used for endless calculations of cables, voltage drop, various selections of circuit breakers, capacitors, cable size and so on.

Spreadsheets are mostly developed by expirienced electrical engineers and programmers (thank you mr. Jignesh Parmar!) and by well known manufacturers of electrical equipment. They all really did an awesome job, you must admit!

Just to mention that all calculation spreadsheets are **free** for download! ;)

Hello team EEP

As a junior power systems engineer, which coding language would advise me to learn among:

PHP

Front-End Web Development

Website Design

Android Development

iOS Development

Python

C#

WordPress

Thank you

Emin

Do you know anything about those languages? They are all completely different. Front-End Web development is not even a language; it’s an area, just like distribution systems engineering.

I suggest you research a little bit before asking a question like this.
