which one of these voltage systems has one phase to neutral voltage that is higher than other phases to neutral? 4 wire, 3-phase delta
The purpose of a transformer core is to provide a magnetic path
The transformer loss caused by demagnitizing and remagnetizing of the core is hystersis
The insulation value of transformer coils, bushings, and oil determines the voltage rating of the transformer
To provide 120/240 single-phase voltage to the user, the secondary transformer windings are connected in series
Only one voltage exists in a delta system, and it is a 3-phase, 3-wire configuration
When you make a delta-delta connection for lights and power, there is one unusable voltage from A phase to neutral
One important function of the fuse link enclosure is to help contain the arc that accompanies a blown fuse
With the enclosed type of fused cutout, you put the fuse into the circuit by closing the cutout door
What is the minimum clearance for a service drop over a public street? 18 feet
Power operated service disconnects are required to be designed so that they can be opened manually
Why are service enterance conductors usually larger than the service drop conductors? Free air permits greater amperage on service drop conductors
Where do you place the weatherhead in reference to the point of attachment of the service drop conductors? higher
Two ways to keep from entering service enterance (SE) cable are to use a weatherhead or a gooseneck
An undergraound distribution system we refer to as a service lateral
Underground services installed with cable must be buried to a depth of at least 24 inches
In a panel with a neutral, what is the smallest percentage of the overcurrent devices that must be rated at 30 amperes of less for it to be classed as a lighting and appliance panel? 10 percent
Fuse panels are designed for plug fuses, cartridge fuses, or knife-blade fuses
When istalling a panelboard in a damp location, what is the minimum distance you must place the cabinet from the wall? 1/4 inch
The equipment ground bar and neutral bar are bonded together in a panel only when the panelboard also serves as the service entrance equipment
The conductors between the final overcurrent devices and the outlet for connecting electrical equipment we call branch circuit conductors
A feeder is made up of the wires to a sub-panel
What is the cycles per second (Hertz) rating for most electrical equipment found in foreign countries? 50
In Europe the most common voltages are 220-380

What factor considers that not all lights and receptacles are to be used at the same time? demand factor
What is the total wattage of 9 ballasts rated at 1.5 amps each and fed by 277 volts? 3,739 Watts
Heavy-duty lamp-holder outlets are calculated at 600 volt-amperes
What is the required wattage for lighting of an industrial commercial (loft) building measuring 60 by 100 feet? 12,000 watts
The code letter on a motor data plate identifies the locked-rotor current draw of the motor
Ampere capacity of branch-circuit conductors feeding a continuous duty rated motor must be not less than 125 percent of the motor's FLC
To determine the total calculated load of a sub-panel, add all the amperes of the branch circuits plus what percent of the amperage of the largest motor? 25 percent
How many current carrying conductors can be installed in raceway before the current capacity of the conductors must be derated? 3
What is the volume of space needed in cubic inches for No. 12 conductor? 2.25 cubic inches
A quick, easy method of mounting boxes to metal studs is to use spring metal clips
What is the most popular height for receptacle outlet boxes in the living areas of a house from the floorline to the center of the box? 12 inches
Nonmetallic cable with aluminum conductors ranges in size from No. 12 to No. 2 AWG
Nonmetallic corrosion resistant cable, but not metallic sheathed cable, more commonly called nonmetallic cable, can be used in corrosive locations
Nonmetallic corrosion resistant cable No.8 AWG, or larger, may be held in place by EMT straps on smooth walls where the cable is exposed
One layer of plastic tape can insulate against a voltage of 600 volts
In addition to the splices required, you must make grounding connections to the boxes used in a circuit to ensure that they are grounded
