It's a case in Latin, the Nominative is the case for the subject.
Can i use a circuit breaker with 420V nominal voltage in 520V line voltage nominal current of circuit breaker is 1600A if I can how much current can pass from this circuit breaker?
NO! NO! NO! The circuit breaker must be rated for the line voltage used. Exceeding this limit can cause catastrophic failure! If you are really working on a 16…00A bus, stop right now, ang go hire a professional! Your question indicates you are not qualified to work on this gear. YOU ARE GOING TO KILL SOMEBODY. I'm not kidding about this. A breaker that is applied beyond its rating can arc over, and the resulting arc-flash can punch right through the panel cover, spraying vaporized metal on anyone unfortunate enough to be standing there. A 1600A bus can have a fault current of 20,000A OR MORE. This is not something to even think about working on unless you are trained and absolutely know what you are doing!
Nominal value of shares refers to the value of share expressed in monetary terms. It is the fixed value of an issued security for the specific year or years without adjust…ing or inflation. It is also called par value or face value.
Nominals are found in the Australian language and do not differentiate nouns from adjectives. Nominals relate to a noun or any word group that functions as a noun.
Nominal Current: In respect to Current Transformers, its the allowable current in amperes which can be transmitted by each contact continuously and simultaneously. Load Cu…rrent: Current flowing through the load. In General... 'Nominal' means named. So the nominal current (or voltage) is the named current. For example, a charger may have a nominal current of 100 mA marked on its nameplate, but the actual current drawn by its load (the load current) may only be, say, 75 mA.
'Nominal' means 'named'. So a 'nominal' voltage is the named voltage of a system. For example, when we talk about a 120-V or 240-V system, we are describing their nominal valu…es, not their actual values which can change from moment to moment.
The word nominal means the lowest possible safe amount. So, nominal current or nominal voltage is the lowest amount necessary to perform an electrical function like keepin…g a light turned on. Answer The original answer is incorrect. 'Nominal' simply means 'named'. So a 'nominal voltage' is the 'named voltage', as opposed to an 'actual voltage'. For example, the nominal voltage of residential supplies in the UK is 230 V; however, this value is allowed to vary between +10/-6% of the nominal voltage. In other words, a nominal voltage of 230 V may vary between 216 V and 253 V.
Depends on context. US presidents, Oscars and many others.
A zener diode has a voltage when it reachesbreak over it may be 5v 12vor other voltage as manufactured. The manufacture will produce a 5v zener or is it? This voltage can chan…ge from device to device but the mean or nominal voltage will be as close as 5v as possible. So when buying a 5v zener do not expect 5v absolute but a nominal 5 v ZENERS are designed for a specific voltage [ THEREFORE NOMINAL] as mentioned above . depends on the voltage required it can be bought within a specific voltage -/+ a % of the breakdown
It is the rated voltage of an electric equipment. It is the voltage at which the device is designed to operate. Another Answer Nominal means 'named'. So a nominal voltage is …the 'named' voltage. For example, the nominal voltage of the supply system in Britain is 230 V. But its actual value is allowed to vary between 216.2 V and 253.0 V.
The rated voltage of a motor listed on the nameplate is called the terminal voltage. This indicates the actual voltage on the motors terminals at which at which the manufactur…er designed to operate. Whereas, Nominal voltage is the design or configuration voltage of the electricity distribution system.
The term, 'nominal', simply means 'named'. For example, the nominal supply voltage for a residence in the UK is 230 V. But this doesn't mean that the actual supply voltage is …230 V, because the supply voltage is allowed to vary by -6% and +10% of the nominal voltage. In other words, the actual voltage could be anywhere within the range of 216.2 V to 253 V. In fact, during periods of heavy load, the actual voltage would tend towards the lower end of this range, whereas during periods of higher load, the actual voltage would vary towards the upper end.
Nominal voltage is the 'named' voltage -for example, the nominal supply voltage in the UK is 230 V. But this is not necessarily the actual voltage at a particular time. A nomi…nal voltage is normally expressed together with the percentage by which it is permitted to vary from that stated value. For example, in the UK, the nominal voltage is expressed as: 230 V +10% / -6% --in other words it is allowed to vary between 216.2 and 253 V. The term, operating voltage, isn't actually defined anywhere, but is usually taken to mean the actual voltage supplied to a device at any particular instant, and this should always fall within the allowable range of the supply system's specified nominal voltage. The operating voltage can be found simply by measuring it with a voltmeter.
AC current to residences in North America is 110 volts at 60 hertz, but 220 V and 440 V are available for industries that need it.
'Nominal' simply means 'named'. So a 'nominal current' is simply a 'named current' and a 'nominal voltage' is simply a 'named voltage'. As opposed to 'actual'. For example, i…n Europe, the 'nominal voltage' is 230 V, but this doesn't mean that the voltage IS necessarily 230 V, because it is allowed, under the various statutes, to vary above or below the nominal value by a certain percentage (between -6% and +10%, for example, in the UK). The same applies to a nominal current -for example, a kettle's nameplate may specify that the kettle or some other appliance draws a nominal current of, say, 12 A. But, in practice, the actual current will vary due to variations in supply voltage.
No, the personal pronoun 'them' is an objective pronoun that takes the place of a plural noun (or two or more nouns) as the object of a verb or a preposition. The co…rresponding plural, nominative pronoun is 'they'. Examples: I will give them a call to see if they can come. The pronoun 'them' is the direct object of the verb 'will give'. The pronoun 'they' is the subject of the second part of the compound sentence.
It simply means selecting the candidates for the electorate to choose from at the ballot. For example - there might be 10 candidates nominated (chosen) to run for office -… but obviously only one can have the job !
