Below are a few questions from your upcoming PSI state exam:
- What would be the calculated volume allowance for the following equipment?
- One switch connected with two 12 AWG conductors
- One switch connected with two 14 AWG conductors
- Correct Answer: NEC – 314.16(B)(1-5) Box Fill Calculation, Table 314.16(B). Calculate the following:
- Switch #1 connected to the 12 AWG wires: 2 x 2.25 = 4.50 cu-in.
- Switch #2 connected to the 14 AWG wires: 2 x 2.00 = 4.00 cu-in.
- Two (2) 12 AWG conductors: 2 x 2.25 = 4.50 cu-in.
- Two (2) 14 AWG conductors: 2 x 2.00 = 4.00 cu-in.
- Sum total = 17.00 cubic inches.
- What is the calculated minimum ampacity rating of the branch circuit conductors given the following residential appliance?
- Power: Single-phase
- Operating Voltage: 120 Volts
- Nameplate Rating: 1,400 Watts
- Correct Answer: Using the Ohm’s Law Formula Wheel: I = P/E = 1,400 Watts / 120 Volts = 11.67 amperes.
- Using the optional method of service calculation, calculate the size (in amperes) of a 120/240-volt service disconnecting means when the total load of a one-family dwelling is 67,500 VA (ignoring or excluding air conditioning loads as well as heating loads)?
- Correct Answer: 220.82, Example D2(a) Optional Calculation for One-Family Dwelling, see steps below.
- Subtract 10 kVA from the total load = 67,500 VA – 10,000 VA = 57,500 VA.
- Multiply the remainder by 40% = 57,500 x 40% = 23,000 VA.
- Add the 10 kVA back to the derated portion = 23,000 VA + 10,000 VA = 33,000 VA.
- Calculate current load: I = P/E = 33,000 VA / 240 V = 137.5 A.
- Per Table 240.6(A) size up to a standard of 150 amperes.
The NEC Codebook and all reference materials are all provided by PSI at the exam testing location. Do NOT bring your personal NEC, but do bring two valid forms of identification.
