Substation Major Equipment

It's only stupid-simple, let's begin.

For which event should a surge arrester operate? Check all that apply.
Question Image
A transformer develops an internal fault. Which device would you install on the transformer high-side to interrupt fault current?
Question Image
Which combination of devices would you use to implement power line carrier?
Question Image
What's the purpose of a conventional power transformer?
Question Image
An industrial facility is plagued with voltage flicker and poor power factor at the service entrance. What's the remedy?
Question Image
In a distribution substation, the available ground-fault current on the low side of the step-down transformer is excessive, over-dutying the switching equipment. What is your cost-effective solution to reducing the fault current?
