Medium voltage switchgear assemblies generally fall into the voltage categories of 5 and 15kV, 27kV, and 38kV.
Circuit breakers in medium voltage switchgear assemblies have three primary connections.
The automatic shutter system prevents contact with live primary current carrying parts by closing when the breaker is levered out of the "CONNECTED" position.
Primary and secondary electrical connections are made and live when the breaker is in the "TEST" position.
A weatherproof enclosure that allows switchgear, motor starters, and MCCs to be located in one area is called ________.
Outdoors control room
The secondary contact plugs can be manually engaged when the circuit breaker is in the TEST position.
Design and proof testing show compliance with ANSI standards and includes:
Short circuit test
Continuous current test
All of the above
The term "Metal-Clad" means that the structures (and compartments within each structure) are physically separated from each other by grounded metal barriers.
The space between the front of the circuit breaker and the front doors of the assembly is occupied by the ________.
Main Bus Compartment
Ground Bus Compartment
Finger Cluster Compartment
This design component allows breakers and other devices to be withdrawn form their compartments for inspection and maintenance.
In a medium voltage metal-clad switchgear assembly, all main bus and connections are insulated.
The main bus of medium voltage switchgear assemblies are usually solid copper bars.
________ devices check and or regulate the flow of power in medium voltage switchgear.
When selling Medium Voltage Switchgear in NEMA markets, "Metal-Clad" structures are always used.
Safety interlocks are not required by governing standards and are supplied as an option by some manufacturers.
Access to the line compartment is made through rear panels or doors.
When circuit breaker and/or auxiliary equipment is stacked in a medium voltage switchgear structure, temperature requirements must be considered.
Vertical structures of medium voltage switchgear are usually ____ inches wide.
All of the above
Switchgear is a term used to describe assemblies of switching and interrupting devices along with control, metering, protective, and regulating equipment.
The circuit breaker makes its primary bus connection using ________.
