### You have a 1000 KVA, 3 phase delta bank, with a primary voltage of 8000 V. What are the size of the primary fuses?

• A.

125 A

• B.

72 A

• C.

1234 A

• D.

1500 A

B. 72 A
Explanation
The correct answer is 72 A because the size of the primary fuses is determined by the transformer's KVA rating. In this case, the transformer is rated at 1000 KVA. According to industry standards, the primary fuses should be sized at 125% of the transformer's rated current. Therefore, 1000 KVA multiplied by 1.25 equals 1250 A. However, the available fuse sizes are limited, so the closest size below 1250 A is 72 A.

### What is the adventage of a cluster over a 3 phase transformer?

• A.

Can mantain service if one transformer blows and only need to change the one transformer

• B.

Higher capacity

• C.

Better voltage regulation

• D.

Cheaper

A. Can mantain service if one transformer blows and only need to change the one transformer
Explanation
A cluster of transformers offers the advantage of maintaining service even if one transformer fails. In the event of a blown transformer, only that specific transformer needs to be replaced, while the other transformers in the cluster can continue to provide power. This ensures uninterrupted service and reduces downtime.

### If you have a transformer connection that supplies 120/240 V single phase and 240 three phase, what type of connection do you have?

• A.

Crowsfoot (O120/240 - 480/277)

• B.

Open delta (240v or 480v)

• C.

3 phase 4 wire delta (120/240 - 240)

• D.

Undergrounded wye (7500v)

C. 3 phase 4 wire delta (120/240 - 240)
Explanation
The correct answer is 3 phase 4 wire delta (120/240 - 240). This is because the given transformer connection supplies both 120/240 V single phase and 240 V three phase power. The term "3 phase 4 wire delta" refers to a three-phase system with four wires, where the voltage between any two phases is 240 V and the voltage between any phase and the neutral wire is 120 V. The mention of "120/240 - 240" in the answer further confirms this connection type.
