    As a matter of fact this type of distance relay will be directional. The Impedance relay is non-directional that is why it needs a directional unit in it.

    IA = 10.392 @ 0 , IB = 10.392 @ 180 and IC = 0.

    I underestimated the level 4 test

    There are some things I looked at online but I still failed my test because I had nothing related to what I studied and the questions are very tricky. I need to study a bit more. I only studied 3 days and it is not enough.
    Here are some thing I looked at:
    http://www.electrical4u.com/distance...inciple-types/
    http://www.electrical4u.com/working-...duction-motor/
    http://www.electrical4u.com/loss-of-...-or-generator/

    Subscribe to "mhmd saad" channel on you tube. The guy has a bunch of awesome information.

    I have a bunch of IEEE and ANSI standards that I didn't look at because I thought it is not necessary but I will study them next time.
    Those of you who want them please send me an email address via personal message and I will send them to you.

    I took my level 2 and 3 in the same day about 6 months ago and I studied only about 8 hours because my 2nd daughter was born a month and a half early and that completely messed up my plans. I have a foreign electrical power bachlor's degree therefore most of the calculation questions are easy for me to solve but I still feel like I underestimated the level 4 test which I shouldn't have.

    NETA 4 seemed kinda cheesy to me...

    I somehow expected more out of the exam. There was a good bit of hype about how tough the exam was, but it seemed kinda cheesy to me. I had tougher circuits problems on my Level 3 exam.

    Make sure you understand how to calculate through-fault current on a transformer. Know how to determine the pick-up point on a relay installed on the primary winding of a transformer if you're looking to protect for a secondary side fault. Know basic test instrument questions. Know common ANSI device numbers. I had been hearing that there was a lot of watt-hour meter questions, but I believe my exam only had 1 or 2 on that topic.

    There were several questions that I didn't know, but I could reason my way through. Several of the questions have at least 2 answers that are dead throw-aways. At that point, you're down to a 50/50 shot at right or wrong.

    Good luck to all of you going forward!

    Seeking NETA 4 exam tips

    during exam time: Donít even attempt to move your head towards the person next to you by any means. Donít flinch weird, donít attract any attention. be a rock.

    I thought the level 4 test was an essay-like test (no multiple choice)?
