## What kV is a 3 phase?

An electricity generating plant produces 3 phase supply on particular voltage such as 11KV, 16.5KV etc. Distribution of power is done at lower voltage such as 33KV (generally for industrial area) & 11KV (in city area). This distribution voltage 11KV & 33KV is further reduced to 415V.

## Is 34.5 kV line to line?

A 34.5-kV, 30-mi mainline is going to have many more interruptions than a 12.5-kV system with an 8-mi main-line….Table 1 – Power Supplied by Each Distribution Voltage for a Current of 400 A.

System Voltage (kV) | Total Power (MVA) |
---|---|

22.9 | 15.9 |

34.5 | 23.9 |

## Is 13.8 kV High Voltage?

If the distances from the main utility substation of the campus to the individual buildings are great, higher voltages could be used, but the 13.8-kV distribution system is very common. Other common voltages are 12.47 kV, 24 kV, and 24.9 kV (nominally 25 kV).

## Which is 27.6 kV or 8.32kv?

The 27.6 kV feeders also supply all distribution stations. The permissible generation at 27.6kV feeders may be reduced by the cumulative DG on the connected distribution stations with all connected 8.32kV feeders. The above maximum allowable DG capacity presumes 3-phase feeder with sufficient conductor size and load levels to permit the DG.

## What’s the difference between 24.94 kV and 12.47 kV?

A 12.47-kV circuit has four times the percentage voltage drop as a 24.94-kV circuit carrying the same load. Area coverage – For the same load density, the area covered increases linearly with voltage: A 24.94-kV system can cover twice the area of a 12.47-kV system; a 34.5-kV system can cover 2.8 times the area of a 12.47-kV system.

## Why are phase to phase and ground to phase dimensions the same?

Phase-to-phase and phase-to-ground dimensions are the same because switchgear used on ungrounded or impedance grounded systems will have phase to phase voltage between the unfaulted phases and ground during a ground fault condition.

## How to calculate minimum approach distance for 5 kilovolts?

To calculate the electrical component of the minimum approach distance for voltages between 5 and 72.5 kilovolts, use the following procedure: 1. Divide the phase-to-phase voltage by the square root of 3 to convert it to a phase-to-ground voltage.
