    Hardest Question?

    What three leads are on a Megger?

    Earth, Guard, Positive or Negative.

    I got this one wrong and did massive research. Pick Three

    P.I. of 1.4, Do you continue?

    The ones you think are easy are worded to make you think or over think.

    Level 4 Question?

    Electro Mechanical Relay Protection is set at a value of .2 (200ms) of one another. Is this acceptable? Oh by the way, these are critical loads.

    This is a great example of why it is very important to read and think about the question before answering.

    It will not ruin it but if it is more than 10% it will.
    See the source I found here: http://www.motorsanddrives.com/cowern/motorterms13.html

    Reducing Ground Resistance to 5 Ohms, Think about it 5 Ohms? It can be reduced but not to an specific value.

    You can lower a ground reading, but getting it to an exact value would be near impossible. There are too many variables at play.


    NETA Reference for a Molded Case Breaker. Pole to Ground

    Assuming molded case breaker is 600V then 100 Megohms - NETA ATS/MTS Table 100.1 Insulation Resistance Test Values Electrical Apparatus and Systems Other Than Rotating Machinery. http://testguy.net/content/240-Insul...ce-Test-Values

    Cable Bus Facts


    Not sure what the question is.
