In addition to this site, there is another site called electrical engineering portal and electrical note by words note.

The site contains a range of topics - use the search function to find what you are looking for.  Steven's catalogue and technical tips, under Tools are also good. You can also ask questions here. 

In addition to this site, there are a lot of good resource if you Google them.  The IET has a good forum, which is very useful to electricians (particularly if you are in the UK).
