3. Both of these
4. None of these

Correct answer: 4. None of these

## Opening one or two phases in a three-phase network will

Opening one or two phases in a three-phase network will:

1. De-energize the circuit
2. Create unbalance conditions
3. Any of above
4. None of above

Correct answer: 2. Create unbalance conditions

## The higher the X/R

The higher the X/R:

1. The shorter the DC component persists
2. The longer the DC component persists
3. X/R and DC components are independent

## Closing and latching ratings of circuit breakers can be expressed in

Closing and latching ratings of circuit breakers can be expressed in:

1. RMS amperes
2. Peak amperes
3. Both of these
4. None of these

Correct answer: 3. Both of these

Closing and latching capability ratings of a circuit breaker is defined as the breaker’s ability to withstand the extreme magnetic forces that occur during the first cycle of a short circuit

## The formula for Close and Latch (peak or crest) is

The formula for Close and Latch (peak or crest) is:

1. Close and Latch (peak or crest) = 0.83 × Maximum Symmetrical RMS Fault Current
2. Close and Latch (peak or crest) = 1.6 × Maximum Symmetrical RMS Fault Current
3. Close and Latch (peak or crest) = 2.3 × Maximum Symmetrical RMS Fault Current
4. Close and Latch (peak or crest) = 2.7 × Maximum Symmetrical RMS Fault Current

Correct answer: 4. Close and Latch (peak or crest) = 2.7 × Maximum Symmetrical RMS Fault Current

The current supplied by one-phase conductor is returned to the source by the other two in case of three phase circuits having:

1. Positive sequence
2. Negative sequence
3. Both of these
4. None of these

Correct answer: 2. Both of these

## In case of presence of fourth conductor serving as return path, the zero-sequence current will

In case of presence of fourth conductor serving as return path, the zero-sequence current will:

1. Not flow
2. Flow
3. Flow but less than 1.732 times
4. Flow but 4 times more the actual value
