B. On all underground switched which have no loadbreak capabilities
Explanation
The load buster tool is designed to be used on underground switches that do not have loadbreak capabilities. Loadbreak capabilities refer to the ability of a switch to safely interrupt the flow of current without causing damage or creating an electrical arc. Therefore, the load buster tool is specifically used for underground switches that lack this capability, allowing for safe and efficient maintenance or repair work to be carried out.

• B.

You would compare size

• C.

You would pull it to see if fuses blow

• D.

Check for gray ring on nose of eblow where it fits onto insert.

A. Check for one white band or two white bands around neck of elbow where cable enters
Explanation
The correct answer is to check for one white band or two white bands around the neck of the elbow where the cable enters. This is a distinguishing feature that can help identify a load break elbow from a non-load break elbow. The presence of one or two white bands indicates that it is a load break elbow.

### What increases the burden on a CT

• A.

High impedance

• B.

Conductor size

• C.

Longer secondaries

• D.

Higher primary coltage

C. Longer secondaries
Explanation
Longer secondaries in a CT refers to the length of the secondary winding of the current transformer. When the secondary winding is longer, it increases the resistance and impedance in the circuit, which in turn increases the burden on the CT. This means that the CT needs to work harder to accurately measure and transmit the current. Therefore, longer secondaries increase the burden on a CT.

### You use potential tested on an underground system to check for

• A.

Resistance of the cable

• B.

Resistance of the flow in the cable

• C.

Current flow in the cable

• D.

Voltage in the cable

D. Voltage in the cable
Explanation
Potential testing is a method used to measure the voltage in a cable. By applying a known voltage to the cable and measuring the response, it is possible to determine the voltage level in the cable. This is important for ensuring that the cable is operating within its specified voltage range and can help identify any voltage-related issues or faults in the cable.
