distance between two pits should not 3m bcoz there is a
tecnical reason behind it, and the reason is that when
there is some heavy earth fault and if one of the pits is
acting as a returning path for earth fault current then it
might go dry due to heat dissipation by the passing
current, and simultaneously one more heavy fault happens
then these pits will offer high resistance because they
have lost moisture and which is not desirable, hence the
distance between two 3m pits should be minimum 6mts.
It can be kept as far away from each other as possible but minimum distance may vary depending upon the length of the earth electrode used. Usually it must be at least the double of the earth electrode's length.
when i am going to take trail on a 3ph sq.i/m motor 5.5kw,
i observed that RPM of the motor is very low as compared to
the rated RPM and also it rotates in clockwise in first ON
command,and anticlock wise in second ON command.
finally i observed that on phase is no available .
but iam not clear about, why the motor is rotates in both
directions without any phase interchanging.pls answer to my
Even when a particular generator in a generating station is
under maintenance we are still able to maintain the same
power output. How is this possible? Does the tie line
between 2 generating stations have a role to play in it?
Three set (each phase contain 2 cable of 400 mmsq CU XLPE
AWA) of single core cables are connected to 11 KV motor of
14 MW & the switch gear supplay is taken from 11kv feeder &
this supplay taken from 275 KV substation. Problem is one
pair cable(L3- 2 cable ) getting very hot & gland melted
and damaged in switch gear side. the other two cable
haven't any more hot(ambient temp only & L3 haveing 95- 100
Degree C. The same problem happened in 275 KV substation
switch gear side also where the supply taken for 11 kv
switch gear. But here L2 phese cable had problem. Why it is
happening like this?. The cable having temperature
different at different location from gland side inthe case
of 11KV feeder of 275 kv substation. why ?
