## Switchgear and Protection MCQs Part 8 MCQ 4

Certain power system has phase to ground capacitance and inductance values 0.02 µF and 4 H respectively. If a magnetizing current of 10 A is to be interrupted what is the value of resistance R that should be used across contacts of CB in order to eliminate voltage surges:

1. 2.3 kΩ
2. 7.07 kΩ
3. 9.53 kΩ
4. 11.33 kΩ

Explanation:

From formula: R = 1/2 √(L/C)

R = 1/2 √4/0.02 * 10^-6) = 7071.06 Ω = 7.07 kΩ

2. It is free from oxidation
3. It doesn’t deteriorate when used in dry air
4. All of these

Correct answer: 4. All of these
