Question
```RATING OF LIGHTENING ARRESTER FOR 11 KV LINE IS 9 KV BUT WE
KNOW THAT LIGHTENING ARRESTER IS USED FOR OVER VOLTAGE
PROTECTION SO WHY NOT THE RATING OF LIGHTENING ARRESTER BE
MORE THAN 11KV ???????????????//```

I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By

# 1
Lightning arrester is to protect the system from any high
voltages such as lightning.
If the system voltage is 11kv, then the phase voltage will
be 11/sqrt(3)=6.35kv. It means the RMS voltage of the phase.
The maximum voltage or the peak voltage across the arrester
and earth will be 6.35*sqrt(2)=8.98kv.i.e 9kv.
Therefore, for 11kv line it is rated for 9kv.

FOR A 11KV LINE LINE TO GROUND VOLTAGE IS 11KV/SQRT(3). IT
GIVES OF THE ORDER OF 6KV ONLY. AS ARRESTER IS USED FOR
LINE TO GROUND TO DISCHARGE THE FAULT CURRENT TO GROUND ITS
RATING SHOULD BE MORE THAN 6KV. GENERALLY WE USE 9KV.

when we use ac line having system line voltage 11kv,in
this case phase voltage [phase to neutral which is earthed}
is 6.351 kv. lightening arrester is connected between phase
and neutral. lightening arester are nothing but the voltage
dependant resistors which act as insulator up to not only
the phase volatage ie 6.351 kv rms but ac peak voltage
reaches to 6.351 rms x root of 2 ie 1.414=8.98 kv. for
normal operation of system. thus the L A s are rated for
normal voltages 9 kv and discharge current generaly 10 kamp.
when ever voltage surges occures due to lightenig or either
by system abnormabilty,L A becomes for a instance as a
conductor provides path to surge voltages and prevents
failure of insulation leveles of equipment of system

 Is This Answer Correct ? 10 Yes 0 No

# 4
11kv is line voltage,but we put the lighting arrester in
phase so phase voltage of 11kv line is 6.351kv,now we can
not put rating of lighting arrester to 6.351kv because it is
normal phase voltage,so we put it 1.414(square root of
2)times more than phase voltage 6.6kv means 9kv.

# 5
for solid grounding maximum voltage build up at earth faul
condition it self is not more than 80% of line voltage so
11*.8=8.8KV so we r using 9KV

 Is This Answer Correct ? 2 Yes 8 No

  Question Asked @ Answers Other Electrical Engineering Interview Questions we often use the word HT (high tension) line.or we say HT switch gear, whats does HT basically mean. is it different from high voltage. 2 How Humming noise generated in starter motor which was used the start the engine in a vehicle/car/Truck?.Moreover Starter motor was operated in DC power supply. Can you guys clarify ? 2 A group of machines (wind turbines) connected with 33KV feeder and each machines are having individual VCB. The 33KV feeder connected with 110KV/33KV substation. The 33KV feeder tripped by over current at Substation and fault recorded at Substation as OC-R&Y phase. Same time the group of machines VCB tripped by over voltage, the fault recorded voltage was above 66KV by numerical Under/Over voltage relay. While grid drop time, this much of voltage hike is possible? 1 If Two Generators are working parellel in a network and suddenly the field of one Generator get weakened What will happened if there is no reverse power relay fixed in that Generator panel???? 7 for testing busbar (33kv) hi-pot .whether we can apply DC r not.and what is the test volt for that .explain 4 in transformer the unit of power is in kva why? Videocon 4 What is the size of electrical cable to be used for a space heater single phase 240V ? 3 how winding temperature detects in power transformer...? Roverco 5 why phase & neutral is use in tv? why earthing not use ? 2 what is the maximum load sutiable from earth to phase and what is the max voltage earth to phase suitable 1 what is the calculation of current when a clampmeter is attached to two phases of any drives.
