## Aramco Standard Electrical and Instrument Question and answers

1.     What is the meant by short circuit braking current?
Ans: The rated short circuit breaking current of a circuit breaker is the highest value of short circuit current
which a circuit breaker is capable of breaking under specified condition of transient recovery voltage and power frequency voltage. Expressed in K. A. RMS at contact separation
2.     What is meant by short circuit making current?
Ans: Rated Making Current = 1.8 x root 2 x rated short circuit breaking current.
= 2.5 x rated short circuit breaking current
1. What is range of low voltage and medium voltage and high voltage?

Ans:  Low Voltage: 110 ~ 380 VAC         Medium Voltage: 489 ~13.8 KV        High Voltage: 14.6 ~115 KV

4.     What is the different between tar and delta connection with types of motor?
Ans:

5.     Star Delta connection with 3 Phase Induction Motor?
Ans: Star Delta Starter: If the starter winding is directly connected with the supply it will draw high current to reduce this high current (to control starting current) Star/Delta starter is used.
6.     Why does control valve operate at IS psi?
Ans: On higher pressure the actuator sizes becomes bigger in area. The actual force produced by the actuator.
Force = Pressure x Area.
= 15 psi x Area, If Area = 15″
Force produced = 15 psi x 25 in2 = 375 pounds.
Actual force acting on a control valve = 375 pounds.
Q. What are Pressure Conversions:
1 PSI                =          27.74”H2O
1Kg/cm2           =          14.223 PSI
1 Bar                =          0.145 PSI
Kg/cm2             =          10000 mm of H2O
1 Bar                =          1.0197 Kg/cm2
1 Kg/cm2          =          0.98 Bar
1 Torr                =          1 mm of Hg
Common Things:

Gland Size: ½” ¾” 1”1½” 2”
(British Standard Pitch), NPT (National Pipe Pitch).
Q.  What are Electrical Voltages:
LT – (Low Tension) – 50VAC ~ 230VAC
HT – (High Tension) – 320VAC ~460VAC
MCC – (Main Control Connection) or (Motor Control Center)
PCC – Power Control Connection
