Question 1 of 10
1. Question
1 pointsA 1600 sq.ft dwelling unit has 16 receptacles and 15 luminaries rated 100 W each, what is the general lighting load of dwelling unit?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC Table 220.12
1600 * 3 = 4800 VoltAmpere

Question 2 of 10
2. Question
1 pointsA quick recovery electric heater is rated 5600 watts 240 volts. What rating of circuit breaker is required for protecting it?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 240.6
The ampere rating of heater = 5600/240 = 23.3 amperes
So 25 ampere circuit breaker is required (23.3 is not a standard rating of circuit breaker). 
Question 3 of 10
3. Question
1 pointsThe total connected load of dwelling unit is 11000 VA , what is the calculated demand load?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : 240.42
First 3000 VA demand factor is = 3000 * 100% = 3000 VA
Remaining (11000 – 3000 ) * 35% = 3150 VA 
Question 4 of 10
4. Question
1 pointsDetermine the feeder demand for a 230 volts dwelling unit consists of Airconditioning unit FLC (full load current) of 30 amperes and 3 heat circuit of each 3KW ?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 220.82 (C)
AC Power Rating = 230 * 30 = 6900 VoltAmpere
Three Heater Loads = 3 * 3kW = 9000 WThe air condition load is smaller than heater load. So omit the AC load. The bigger load has to be taken.

Question 5 of 10
5. Question
1 pointsA dwelling unit has four appliances fastened in place with each power rating of 800 VA. what is the demand load appliances?
Correct
Incorrect
If four or more appliances are fastened in place then total demand load = 70% of total rated load
Demand load = 70% * 3200 VA = 2240 VA

Question 6 of 10
6. Question
1 pointsWhat is the minimum load of household Electric cloth dryer in a dwelling unit?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC 220.54

Question 7 of 10
7. Question
1 pointsThe dwelling unit consists of 5 electric cloth dryers, what is the demand load calculated ?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 220.54
Total load for 5 electric dryers = 5 * 5000 = 25000 VA
The Demand load = 85 % 25000 = 21250 VA. 
Question 8 of 10
8. Question
1 pointsWhat is calculated demand load for a 15 unit apartment with each apartment has a 900 sq ft area?
Correct
Incorrect
General Lighting load = 900 * 3 VA = 2700 VA
Small Appliance circuits (two minimum) = 3000 VA
Laundry circuit = 1500 VA
total load per apartment = 2700 + 3000 + 1500 = 7200 VA
Total load for 15 apartments = 15 * 7200 VA = 108000 VA
Refer : Table 220.42
First 3000 VA at 100% = 3000 VA
Remaining (108000 – 3000) * 35 % = 36750 VA
Total Demand load = 39750 VA 
Question 9 of 10
9. Question
1 pointsA 8 unit multifamily dwelling unit has an 5 KW electric dryer in each unit. What is total dryer demand load for building service or feeder?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC 220.54
Total load for 8 units = 8 * 5 = 40 KW
Demand load = 60% * 40 = 24 KW 
Question 10 of 10
10. Question
1 pointsA 3 phase 120/230 Volts Multifamily dwelling building has a total demand load of 220 KVA, What is the minimum size of service conductor that can be used for building?
Correct
Incorrect
Full load current I = P / E * 1.732 = (220 * 1000) / 230 * 1.732 = 552 Amperes
Refer : Table 310.15 (B)(7)
600 kcmil Aluminum Wire per phase
