    Info on NETA Level IV Exam Updates

    This isn't going to help you pass the exams, but it may be helpful knowing the structure. Among the improvements is providing 5 answers to all multiple choice questions. Eliminating "none of the above," "all of the above" and "A and B (etc.) only" answers. The intent is to have one correct answer and 4 detractors (wrong answers), with at least one of the detractors very close to the correct answer. This isn't much different than other multiple choice exams except maintaining consistency AND giving you 5 answers to choose from.

    Of the things to remember when answering multiple choice exams is to NOT to see or read any of the answers until you have read the question. The first couple of answers (if seen) will influence your answer as you read the question. Remember that at least one of the first two answers is WRONG.

    No matter what type of question you are answering, statistically, your first answer is your best answer and more likely to be correct than what you might change it to so be sure of yourself if you change an answer.

    It is normally best to go through an exam and answer all the questions you know straight away. This relieves/clears your mind of "ready knowledge" and gets your brain pumping for the deeper, more difficult questions. Just be darned sure you don't forget to answer ALL the questions and be careful keeping your answers in proper order on answer sheets.

    These tips might give you enough of an edge to pass an exam you might've failed by a question or two.

    I fail. But I'm working on the questions I can remember and will post them here. It's not difficult test, I need to work more with relay protection.

    One question is going around here and I had it on my test.
    A unbalanced relay with pick-up at 6 amps. The answer is 2 currents of 10.392 (6 * Sqrt 3 = 10.392 Amps) with one at 0 degree the other at 180 degrees. If you have a symmetrical components calculator, put this two currents (I1 =10.392 @ 0, I2 = 10.392 @ 180 and I3 = 0) the result will be, (I+) = 6 amps and (I-) = 6 amps.
    The test is not stating 0 and 180 degrees, it states one in one direction, the other direction, which is the same.

    obs.: I+ = positive sequence, I- = negative sequence.

    BTW, 21 Impedance (Z) relay is not directional but Admittance (1/Z) relay is directional.

    Thank you very much. It is not a big problem. NETA make you skip the following test, I will retake on the Fall section.

    There was another question in top of my mind:

    1) A switchgear with a CTs and 2 PTs(open delta) to install another KW hr meter and a relay 47. What is necessary? (Don't remember the answers)

    2) Two lines, line 1 and line 2, from different sources, feeding a substation, each have two breaker, at the source and at the substation. Line1 has a short-circuit and open its two breaker but also the line 2 breaker there at the source.

    3) One question about Kelvin Bridge

    4) A CT 300:5, C200, which will be the max current for a error of 20%?
