Self-Test 1 Q&A 4-6

Self-Test Questions Volume 1

QuestionAnswer
Name the two types of plug fuses. Edison base and type S.
Explain the conditions under which an Edison-base fuse panel can be installed An Edison fuse panel can be installed only when it is modified by inserting adapters in the fuse holders to accept type S plug fuses.
List the amperage ratings for type S plug fuses 0-15 amperes, 16-20 amperes, and 21-30 amperes
What is the maximum capacity of amperes for ferrule-type cartridge fuses? 60 amperes.
Why can't a 60-ampere, ferrule type be used in place of a 20-ampere, ferrule type? Fuse diameter and length increase as amperage and voltage increase
What is the weakest part of an electrical circuit? The fuse.
How does a thermal-type circuit breaker work to interrupt the circuit on an overload? A thermal type has an element within the breaker that responds to temperature change. When the current flow reaches a set level, the element bends enough to trip the latch. This opens a set of contacts to break the circuit.
How does a magnetic type of circuit breaker open the circuit on an overload? A magnetic-type circuit breaker responds instantaneously. A small electromagnet actuates the breaker mechanism. Enough magnetic flux is created to attract a small armature. As the armature moves, the breaker mechanism trips and opens the circuit.
What is the advantage of a magnetic circuit breaker over a thermal type? It opens the circuit instantaneously when there is an excess of current flow.
What is the purpose of a GFCI? A GFCI used as extra protection on circuits where the potential of having a ground though the user is higher.
Where must ground fault breakers be installed in a home? All 120-volt, single-phase, 15- and 20-ampere receptacles in bathrooms, garages, and outdoors.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
