    The clearance between conductor line on an overhead line is determined by the :

    • A.

      Conductor Line

    • B.

      Voltage in the Line

    • C.

      Current in the Line

    • D.

      Power factor of the load

    Correct Answer
    B. Voltage in the Line
    Explanation
    The clearance between conductor lines on an overhead line is determined by the voltage in the line. Higher voltages require larger clearances to prevent electrical arcing and maintain safety. This is because higher voltages can cause the air surrounding the conductors to break down and conduct electricity, leading to short circuits or electrical faults. Therefore, the voltage in the line directly affects the required clearance between conductor lines.

    Two energized three phase liners are being phase test with a volt meter. When non corresponding phases are connected through the meter, the reading should be

    • A.

      Phase to ground voltage

    • B.

      Zero

    • C.

      Phase to neutral voltage

    • D.

      Phase to phase voltage

    Correct Answer
    D. Phase to phase voltage
    Explanation
    When non-corresponding phases are connected through the meter, the reading should be phase to phase voltage. This means that the volt meter will measure the voltage difference between two different phases of the three-phase system. The voltage reading will not be zero because there is a potential difference between the two phases, and it will not be phase to ground voltage or phase to neutral voltage because these readings are specific to the connection between a phase and ground or neutral, not between two different phases.

    If two primary transformer fuses in an underground three-phase star-connected transformer bank are blown, the potential at the star point would be:

    • A.

      50%

    • B.

      75%

    • C.

      0%

    • D.

      100%

    Correct Answer
    A. 50%
    Explanation
    If two primary transformer fuses are blown in an underground three-phase star connected transformer bank, it means that only one of the three primary windings is receiving power. In a star connection, the voltage at the star point is the average of the voltages at the three phase points. Since only one phase is receiving power, the potential at the star point would be 50% of the normal voltage. Therefore, the correct answer is 50%.
