4 P a g e 4 Note from the Author: As a Master Electrician, in the electrical trade now for over 24 years, I ve pursued my career like most electricians do. I started in the Army in 1987, then moved into the residential service trade and worked my way into commercial work. I ve gone from the ground floor up on many new projects, including several commercial High-Rise projects. As an electrical Project Manager I realized quickly how important good electrical training was. However, as a field electrician I knew how difficult and scarce this good electrical training was to find. Most of my training came from OJT. Unfortunately for me, this was the least consistent and least effective way to learn. I bought book after book trying to understand some of the harder to comprehend theory portions and mathematical calculations. After years of studying, I now know them like the back of my hand, and suddenly realized that there was an easier and a more certain way to both understand them and know how to use them during test taking! Congratulations on purchasing this book. You ve just found the one book in the entire world that will take you through ONLY the stuff that matters and not send you on a wild goose chase learning the stuff that doesn t. My goal is to get you in front of your Journeyman s or Master s exam, with all the tools laid out in front of you. The most simple manner possible, with clear and legible step by step instructions are best, under the extreme test time crunch you ll face in your exam. You DON T have time to be flipping around and reworking formulas at the last second. That s why we have the most innovative approach of anyone out there. How would you like to have an approved NEC codebook that has all your formulas arranged in a step by step fashion? Wouldn t you like to have code tabs that are only on pages that are important to you during a test? That s what we ve got. Our complete test package includes specially designed peel and stick labels that adhere to your NEC code book, tabs for you to use that are test specific, and some quick index stickers that will increase your ability to quickly find code challenge answers. I sincerely appreciate your interest in the following book. Rest assured that we've put great attention and research into each of these questions. Let us know if you have any questions, feedback, or comments. Good luck with your test. We wish you the best! -Mitchell Tolbert

11 P a g e Given the following motors all installed on the same circuit feeder, calculate the correct sized inverse time circuit breaker for this group: (1) 50 HP 3 _ 240V, (1) 20 HP 3 _ 240V, (2) 10 HP 3 _ 240V a: 500A b: 900A c: 1100A d: 1200A ans: a., Articles (C)(4), page 312, T430.52, page 310, and T , page 325. First find all FLC values for the group from T HP = 130A, 20 HP = 54A, and the two 10 HP's together are 56A (28A each). Next take the largest motor's FLC (130A) from T and multiply it times the 250% value found in T for an Inverse Time Circuit Breaker (Maximum Rating of Overcurrent Protection -Ground Fault or Short Circuit). Then add in the sums of all other motors. Finally, according to 240.4(B) we will round UP to the next standard size circuit breaker shown on page 85, under 240.6(A). Thus: 130A X 2.50 = 325A + 54A + 56A = 435A, rounded up to a 500A OCPD. 7. Given a 3_, 20kva transformer with a primary voltage of 480 at 2% impedance what would be the maximum size breaker or fuse for protection on the secondary side? A. 200 amps B. 125 amps C. 150 amps D. 140 amps ans: b., T450.3(B), Note 3, page 337. Find amperage on primary first: 20,000VA / 480 * 1.73 = A. Then Note 3 allows for 6 times this value, * 6 = Amps. This is a maximum not to exceed value, thus you would round down to the next standard size (according to 240.6(A), page 85) would be a 125A OCPD. 8. When installing 6 dryers, each with a name plate rating of 4500W, in a residential application, using the minimum sized requirements from the NEC, what would be the amperage value used for the sizing on the grounded conductor (neutral), using any allowable reduction? A A B A C A D A ans: c., Art requires a minimum of 5kW per household dryer, and T allows for a 75% derating. Thus: 6 X 5,000W = 30,000W X 75% = 22,500W / 240V = Amps. Multiply that value times 70% (permitted reduction from (B)(1) = Amps. 9. What would the smallest allowable service conductor rated for a voltage under 600V and the smallest size allowable for rated above 600V??? A. #8/#8 AWG Cu B. #8/#6 AWG Cu C. #6/#4 AWG Cu D. #12/#10 AWG Cu ans: a., (B), page 74, and (B), page 75.

12 10. What is the maximum of length of cord that would be allowed to be used for a disconnecting means for an appliance? A. 6 ft. B. 12 ft. C. 8 ft D. 18" ans: D What is the minimum sized allowed per the NEC for a SJO type extension cord conductor? A. 18 AWG B. 14 AWG C. 16 AWG D. 12 AWG ans: a., T400.4, page 243. See Sizes under "AWG or kcmil" heading of this table for "Junior Hard Service Cord." P a g e According to the NEC, what is the maximum sized over protection device, circuit breaker allowed for a range or oven in a dwelling? A. 60 amps B. 75 amps C. 50 amps D. 100 amps ans: c., Art (C) and (D), page Given the following ranges installed in a residential occupancy size the demand load on the service for these appliances. (2) 10KW (3) 12 KW (3) 14KW (1) 10 KW? A. 51kw B. 35kw C. 24kw D. 108 kw ans: c., T220.55, Note #2: Average all values first, then use correct column to rate demand load. Thus 2 X 10KW = 20KW, + 3 X 12KW = 36KW, + 3 X 14KW = 42KW, + 10KW = 108,000 Watts. 108KW / 9 (total number of ranges) averages the value to 12KW for each range. Then under Column "C" the demand load for 9 ranges of a 12KW type would be 24KW. 15. Given the following motor what size inverse timed circuit breaker would be required to protect a 30 hp 480V motor at a service factor at 1.15? A. 220A B. 250A C. 90A D. 110A ans: b., Table give us a FLC value of 88 Amps for this motor. Then T shows an inverse time CB rating of 250% would be used to multiply this value out. Thus 88 X 2.50 = 220A which Exception #1 would allow for the upsizing to a 250A ITCB. Note that the Service Factor of 1.15 would only apply to OVERLOAD (heater) protection under (A)(1) and would have no bearing on this answer.

13 16. In installing a 75KVA transformer rated at 480V at the primary and 208V on the secondary what would be the minimum wire rating for the secondary side in amperage at a wire temperature at 75 degrees Celsius? A. 4/0 AWG B. 500 KCMIL C. 2/0 AWG D. 250 KCMIL ans: a., Take the PIE chart, 75,000 VA / 208V * 1.73 = 209 Amps. T shows a 4/0 is good for 230 Amps under the 75º column. P a g e When installing a pool in a residential setting what is the minimum distance in ft that a receptacle provided? A. 6ft B. 5 ft C. 10 ft D. No receptacle required given these circumstances. ans: a., (A)(3), page What is the minimum height a ceiling suspended paddle fan may be installed above a pool? A. 10 ft B. 6 ft. C. 8 ft. D. 7' 6" ans: d., (C)(2), page What is the resistance of 4/0 copper conductors (uncoated) in ohms per 1000ft? A _ B _ C _ D _ 20. What is the minimum number of accessible general purpose receptacle outlets required in a hotel and guest room suite? A. 0 B. 2 C. 1 D. 1 per occupied room ans: b., (B), page Given a 3,500W countertop range, a 4,500W wall mounted oven, and a dryer; calculate the demand load on the service. A. 13,000 Watts B. 9,100 Watts C. 11,400 Watts D. 11,425 Watts ans: c., Use Note 4 from Table to consolidate the two ranges and treat as one single appliance. Also remember that a dryer must be rated at a minimum of 5,000 watts (per ) and 1-4 dryers per T are calculated at 100% of the nameplate rating. Take the two ranges and combine them, for a total of 8,000 watts. One range at 8KW is 80% from column "B" which equates to 6,400, then add 5,000 watts for the dryer load. You would then have a total of 11,400 watts.

14 P a g e Given a 5 minute short time rated 30 hp 3 phase motor, a 10 hp 3 phase motor, a 25 hp 3 phase motor, calculate the demand load on the feeder. 23.
