My last measurement showed each leg around 115 amps. Everything was balanced. I'm guessing the excess energy was in the form of heat in the one leg that was heating up.
The voltage was fine but each leg had a little difference in current, not much though. It would run for an hour and then trip. So the only possibility that I can see is that the fault wasn't in direct contact with the can but was so close that just a tiny bit of fault current was leaking through...
The ground fault was just inside of a flex connector that I had no way if seeing. The company I work for didn't have a meg ohmmeter to check the wires so they insisted on changing the breaker to a fused disconnect which I thought was fooling because I knew that the breaker was not the problem...
The supply is a delta high leg 3 phase. The high leg is 208 phase to ground, the other two phase are 120 to ground and it's 240 phase to phase. The load was a little off balance. A phase was drawing 105 amps, B phase 115 amps and C phase 120 amps
Ok I have a question that hopefully someone can answer. I'm an electrician and I recently had a service call where a hotel had a 175 amp 3 phase breaker feeding an ac unit with 4 compressors and 2 blowers that kept tripping. I first checked all the compressors and blowers to see if they were...
I tell you why I'm confused, I read 1000/in^2 as 1000 divided by inches squared. I think the NEC would be right to rewrite that so it looks like multiplication
How to find ampacity of 1/2" by 4" copper buss bar
I have a question about finding ampacity of buss bar. I have a 1/2" by 4" copper buss bar and the only formula I can find in the NEC is 1000/in^2 but when I use this formula I come up with 500 amps and I'm being told that 1/2" by 4" copper bus...
I don't have the mathematics down quite yet but one thing I've noticed whenever I watch documentaries about gravity in relativity is that it's always described on a 2 dimensional plane. They show a planet bending space time as if the space time is underneath it but I'm thinking that the space...
I'm doing quadratics and I broke down some data into 8 systems of equations and I was wondering what the best way to solve this was. Someone online mentioned doing Gaussian Matrix but I don't know what that is. Any suggestions?
So then if a main breaker was closed outside of a building feeding equipment inside the building but their individual circuits were open then there would be no arc as that breaker closed? There would be voltage but no current and my understanding is that it will arc
