Below is a small sample of our exam prep questions:
- According to New Mexico electrical code, overhead service support shall comply with the serving utility requirements or be at least how size pressure treated timber or equivalent round poles?
- Correct Answer: NMAC 184.108.40.206(P)(2)(b) … 6×6 inches
- Fire pump power circuits, wiring methods, and load calculations shall comply with the requirements of the NEC. Therefore, calculate the required minimum ampacity of the conductor size, given the following multiple loads? (Fire pump at 88 amps, Maintenance pump at 10.6 amps, Accessory Equipment at 10 amps)
- Correct Answer: NEC – 695.6(B)(1), Calculate; 88.0 amps + 10.6 amps = 98.6 amps, then x 125% = 123.25 amp. Then add all the loads; 123.25 + 10.00 = 133.25 amps.
- Calculate the maximum standard rating of a motor branch circuit, short circuit, or ground fault protective device given the following conditions? (230 volts, Single Phase, 2 HP, Inverse Time Breaker)
- Step_1: Table 430.248 lists the FLC at 12 amperes..
- Step_2: Table 430.52 lists the multiplier at 250%, then multiply 12 amperes x 2.50 = 30.0 amperes
- Step_3: Table 240.6(A) lists a standard rating fuse as 30 A.
- If FOUR ungrounded supply conductors are paralleled in two separate raceways, what would be the MIMIMUM supply side bonding jumper required between the 1,000 amp Service and the steel frame of the Commercial Building? Assume the individual supply conductors for this installation are size 250 kcmil conductors?
- Correct Answer: NEC – Table 250.102(C)(1), Four (4) 250-kcmil ungrounded conductors are in parallel. Therefore, calculate; 250 kcmil x 4 = 1,000 kcmil, so slide down the left column to “Over 600 through 1100” then over to size the supply-side bonding jumper at 2/0 AWG .
Since the PSI state test is composed from several code and text books revisions, our exam prep program simulates this testing experience. Question and code references from the current and older code books and calculations are included with this module. This gives our customers the very best chance to study and prepare with the variety of questions that can be asked during their examination.
