### What is the purpose of putting a shaunt capacitor on a line?

• A.

To dampen ferroresonance

• B.

To increase line current

• C.

To correct power factor

• D.

To eliminate the 9th harmonic

C. To correct power factor
Explanation
Putting a shunt capacitor on a line is done to correct power factor. Power factor is a measure of how effectively electrical power is being used. When the power factor is low, it means that the electrical system is not efficiently utilizing the power being supplied. By adding a shunt capacitor, the reactive power component is reduced, which improves the power factor. This helps in minimizing energy losses, improving voltage stability, and increasing the overall efficiency of the electrical system.

### If work is to be done on the secondary circuit of a CT with the primary circuit still carrying current you must..?

• A.

Work must not be done if the primary so the CT is still carrying current

• B.

Be careful and use rubber gloves

• C.

### If you have a street light lamps which operate at 100 lumens/watt and have a burning time of 2400 hours what type of bulb is being used?

• A.

Mercury vapor

• B.

Low pressure sodium

• C.

Metal halide

• D.

High pressure sodium

D. High pressure sodium
Explanation
The correct answer is high pressure sodium. High pressure sodium bulbs have a high efficacy of 100 lumens/watt, meaning they produce 100 lumens of light for every watt of power consumed. Additionally, they have a long burning time of 2400 hours. Mercury vapor and metal halide bulbs also have high efficacies, but low pressure sodium bulbs have a much lower efficacy of around 180 lumens/watt. Therefore, high pressure sodium is the most likely type of bulb being used.

### The length of a street light davit arm along the road is determined by..

• A.

The distance of the pole from the curb

• B.

• C.

The lumen rating of the head

• D.

The angle of deflection of the arm

A. The distance of the pole from the curb
Explanation
The length of a street light davit arm along the road is determined by the distance of the pole from the curb. The distance between the pole and the curb determines how far the arm needs to extend to properly position the light head over the road. If the pole is closer to the curb, the arm will need to be shorter. Conversely, if the pole is further away from the curb, the arm will need to be longer to reach the desired position. Therefore, the distance of the pole from the curb is a crucial factor in determining the length of the davit arm.

### When checking out a street light which is not working, you find no voltage at the termination block in the head your next check would be

• A.

The photo cell

• B.

The secondary connections

• C.

The bulb

• D.

The relay

B. The secondary connections
Explanation
If there is no voltage at the termination block in the head of the street light, the next logical step would be to check the secondary connections. The secondary connections are responsible for distributing the voltage from the termination block to the various components of the street light, including the photo cell, bulb, and relay. By checking the secondary connections, it can be determined if there is a fault or loose connection that is preventing the voltage from reaching the termination block.

### How is heat from the pressure and friction of oil dissipated

• A.

Through the valves

• B.

Through the hose

• C.

Through the hydraulic oil reservoir

• D.

Explanation
Heat from the pressure and friction of oil is dissipated through the radiator. The radiator is designed to remove heat from the hydraulic oil by transferring it to the surrounding air. As the oil passes through the radiator, the heat is transferred to the metal fins of the radiator, which increases the surface area available for heat dissipation. The surrounding air then cools the metal fins, effectively dissipating the heat from the oil. This process helps to maintain the optimal temperature of the hydraulic system and prevent overheating.

Tap changer

D. Tap changer
Explanation
A tap changer is a device that allows for the adjustment of the number of effective turns in the primary or secondary winding of a transformer. By reducing or increasing the effective turns, the tap changer can vary the ratio of the transformer. This adjustment is useful in situations where the input or output voltage needs to be changed to match the desired electrical requirements. Therefore, a tap changer is the correct answer as it directly relates to the variation of the ratio by adjusting the effective turns in the winding.

### What is the turns ratio of a 7200/240 volt transformer

• A.

30:1 or 30/1

• B.

10:2 or 10/2

• C.

10:0 or 10/1

• D.

5:1 or 5/1

A. 30:1 or 30/1
Explanation
The turns ratio of a transformer is the ratio of the number of turns in the primary winding to the number of turns in the secondary winding. In this case, the turns ratio is 30:1 or 30/1, which means that there are 30 turns in the primary winding for every 1 turn in the secondary winding. This ratio determines the voltage transformation between the primary and secondary sides of the transformer.

### How is the turns ratio determined

• A.

By the number of turns in each of the windings

• B.

By the number of windings in the transformer

• C.

By the type of turns in the windings

• D.

By the type of windings in the transformer

A. By the number of turns in each of the windings
Explanation
The turns ratio of a transformer is determined by the number of turns in each of the windings. The turns ratio is a measure of the ratio of the number of turns in the primary winding to the number of turns in the secondary winding. It determines the voltage transformation ratio between the primary and secondary sides of the transformer. By increasing or decreasing the number of turns in the windings, the turns ratio can be adjusted to achieve the desired voltage transformation. Therefore, the correct answer is "by the number of turns in each of the windings."
