What is nominal line voltage?
'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 values, not their actual values which can change from moment to moment.

Overexcited Transformer. Operation above the rated supply voltage causes the ferromagnetic core to enter saturation; this means that the primary inductance is reduced and since the primary current is limited by primary resistance +inductance then the primary current will increase and possibly cause… the primary winding current capacity to be exceeded. Also the iron core hysteresis loss will likely increase and cause the core temperature to rise. We have not considered eddy currents in the core, probably these are less than the hysteresis core loss. Addition: also the stresses that caused by increasing the voltage will over heat the transformer by mean the life time is redused, for example: if the life time for a transformer is 20 years this number will decrease due to operating the transformer on a higher voltages than the rated...

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 1600A bus, stop right now, ang go hire a professional! Your question indicates you are not qualified to work on this gear. YOU ARE GOING T…O 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! (MORE)
Tolerances are about +/- 5 percent.. Scroll down to related links and look at "List of countries with mains power_plugs, voltages and frequencies - Wikipedia".
It varies from country to country. In the USA it is 110 volts, in the UK it 230 volts +/- 10%/6%.. In practise in the UK it is 240s volt +/- 6%, the slightly odd looking specification allows harmonisation with rest of Europe.. In all these cases, the mains voltage is supplied AC (alternating curre…nt) and the voltage is given as root mean square (RMS). The peak voltage in the UK is 384 volts. (MORE)
For questions of this type, it seems the main issue may be one of definitions and industry terms. See if this makes sense: Line voltage is a very ambiguous term. For instance, say you are wiring a doorbell transformer. You feed 120V into the primary, and 18V comes out the secondary. The electrician… would say the output is "low voltage" and the input is "line voltage". He simply means the building wiring, or "lines". Now, if you go out to the breaker panel, you will measure 120V from each "leg" to neutral, but you can also measure 240V from leg to leg. It's all line voltage. Line voltage simply means the voltage present in that particular power distribution system. Now the power in your house is "single phase" (well, in almost all homes, anyway). Single phase is fine for most anything, but motors are a special case. Motors need something to create a rotating magnetic field to get them turning. Single phase power doesn't have anything to do that, so they need some sort of a gimmick, like a capacitor, to create a "phase shift" to get the rotation. Single phase AC (alternating current) simply means the voltage goes positive then back down to zero, then negative then back up to zero. That's one complete cycle. The cycle is divided into 360 degrees, like a circle. The positive voltage goes from 0 to 180 degrees, and the negative half 180 back to 0. Now 3-phase power has, you guessed it, 3 hot wires. Each hot wire, when paired with a neutral, is a single-phase source. Heres the big difference: Phase A starts its positive cycle. When it is 120 degrees into the cycle, phase B starts going positive. When Phase B is 120 degrees finished with its cycle, phase C starts going positive. When phase C is 120 degrees into its cycle, that's a total of 360 degrees, and phase A is done with one cycle, and the whole process starts over. Picture 3 people doing "the wave" at a football game. Same principle. This time difference, or "phase shift" is what makes 3-phase power unique. 3-phase motors use the phase shift directly to produce the rotating magnetic field they need to turn. Think of 3 people in a circle, tossing a ball around. see the "circular" motion? Now picture two people tossing the ball back and forth. No circular motion there. That's the difference between single-phase and 3 phase. So, electricians use the term "phase" to refer to one of the three hot wires in a 3-phase (also correctly called multiphase or polyphase) power system. The term "phase" voltage is just as ambiguous as "line" voltage. To be accurate, you must specify whether you mean phase-to-phase voltage, or phase-to-neutral voltage. Confused? if you go into a large commercial building with 3-phase power, many times the incoming panel will have voltmeters on the front. In one building, the first meter will be labeled "phase-to-phase voltage", and the second meter will be labeled "phase-to-neutral voltage". Go into the building NEXT DOOR, and the same meters will be labeled "line-to-line voltage" and "line-to-neutral voltage". See? the terms are used pretty interchangably. In a 3-phase system, each phase, leg, or line has the same potential, or voltage (except for a very few wierd and pretty outdated systems). If you measure from phase A to Phase B you will get the same reading as B to C, also the same as C to A. So, measuring any two phases will tell you what the line voltage is, but that motor still needs all 3 phases to get the rotation. To understand the different voltages you find in a 3-phase system, see the related questions for another answer that relates to that subject. (MORE)
The standard voltage for the telephone system is 48 volts DC. Ringing voltage is much higher, around 90 volts AC at a low frequency. When you place a load of about 600 ohms on the line, you are "off hook" or connected. . Telephone ringer voltage is 50.5 volts at standing and -50.5 volts at ringing
The conductors that connect a three-phase supply to its load arecalled 'line conductors' or, more simply, 'lines'. The individualgenerator stator windings, transformer winding, or loads are called'phases'. Lines and line terminals are identified by colours, letters,numbers, or combinations of lette…rs and numbers. For example,A-B-C. Phases are identified by using the letters assigned to theline terminals between which the phases are connected, e.g A-B,B-C, and C-A. Voltages measured between lines ('line-to-line') are termed 'linevoltages', and currents that pass through the lines are called'line currents'. Voltages measured across a generator's windings, transformerwindings, or individual loads, are called 'phase voltages', and thecurrents that pass through these are called 'phase currents'. For a three-phase, three-wire, system, the phase- and line-voltagesare numerically-equal to each other. For a three-phase, four-wire,system, the line voltage is 1.732 times larger than the phasevoltage. (MORE)
The word nominal means the lowest possible safe amount. So, nominalcurrent or nominal voltage is the lowest amount necessary toperform an electrical function like keeping a light turned on.

For example, the nominal voltage ofresidential supplies in the UK is 230 V; however, this value isallowed to vary between +10/-6% of the nominal voltage.

How do you get line to neutral voltage form line to line voltage especially when there is unbalance in line to line voltage?
It is highly unusual for the supply system's line voltages to be unbalanced as the source is considered to be an infinite bus. On the other hand, it is not in the least unusual for the line currents to be unbalanced, as they are determined by the load . If a unbalanced star (wye) connected load has… no neutral, then the phase voltages will become unbalanced. (MORE)

Line to line voltage is not the same as line to neutral voltage because line voltages are 120 degrees apart. They are related by: Line to neutral voltage * tan (120 degrees) = Line to neutral voltage * 1.73. Additional Comment For delta-connected systems, the line voltage is the same as the ph…ase voltage. For wye-connected systems, the line voltage is larger than the phase voltage by a factor of 1.732. The reason for this is as follows: Because any two phase voltages are displaced from each other by 120 o , they must be added vectorially , not algebraically, to find the line voltage. As the above answer points out, this means that the relationship between the two is the square-root of 3, or 1.732. (MORE)

Sure, depending on the type of circuit used, a cap may not be used at all. If you could provide some more detail as to the application, we could answer the question more accurately.

To reduce the power losses or conduction losses in transmission lines. - Yes its right. I will give a slightly improved answer. The size of coper conductor used for transmission lines is inversely proportional to the square of voltage transmitted. Hence normally for long transmission lines …the voltage is increased to a very high value so as to reduce the amount of copper conductor used, hence reduce losses. Answer For a given load, the higher the supply voltage the lower the load current. The primary reason for using high-voltage transmission lines is to reduce the otherwise enormous voltage drops that would take place along the lines. The secondary reasons are to enable the use of conductors of practical size, and to minimise line losses. (MORE)

In a delta connection, the line voltage is equal to the phase voltage. In a star connection, the line voltage is 1.732 larger than the phase voltage.
Because higher voltage can carry further. That answer is too simplistic. The actual reason is as follows: for any given load, the higher the supply voltage, the lower the resulting current. Lower currents mean smaller diameter transmission/distribution conductors can be used and the line losses(I… 2 R) are lower. (MORE)
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.

The three 'hot' conductors supplying a three-phase system are called ' line conductors '. A line voltage is the voltage between any pair of line conductors. . In a 'delta' connected system, phases are the loads connected between the three line conductors . So, for a delta-connected load, the p…hase voltages correspond to the line voltages. . In a 'star' or 'wye' connected system, phases are the loads connected between the line conductors and a neutral conductor . So for a star-connected system, the phase voltages exist between any line conductor and the neutral conductor, and equate to 0.577 x the value of a line voltage (or, if you prefer, a line voltage is 1.732 x a phase voltage). . To summarise, for delta connected systems, a line voltage is measured between line conductors, and a phase voltage is numerically equal to that line voltage. For star-connected systems, line voltages exist between line conductors, whereas phase voltages exist between any line conductor and a neutral conductor. (MORE)
A metropolitan area is served by 69-kV and 138-kV networks, both feeding multiple distribution substations. A 230-kV network is also present, which feeds selected points within the 138-kV network. There are a couple of 500-kV nodes nearby that supply bulk-power from an interstate regional power pool…. In this example, both the 69-kV and 13.8-kV systems are sub-transmission, while the infrastructure operating at 230 kV and 500 kV is considered to be transmission. A largely rural area is served with a 230-kV network, in which cities and towns have 230-kV high-voltage distribution substations. There is also a 69-kV network to feed some of the smaller substations in outlying areas. The 230-kV network is the transmission network while the 69-kV network represents a sub-transmission system. These substations may also include transformers connecting higher-voltage transmission with a lower-voltage sub-transmission network. The distribution system provides the delivery network to individual homes and businesses. Common distribution voltages include 12.5 kV, 13.2kV. For most of the regulated history of electric utilities, the voltages used in the distribution delivery systems were allowed to vary within defined limits, mostly plus or minus 5%. As systems operated constantly at the upper 5% limit, these limits became the new nominal operating level. Therefore, 7.2/12.47-kV systems became 7.6/13.2-kV systems, which then evolved to 7.9/13.8-kV systems. In addition, the 7.2/12.47-kV system was doubled to provide the 14.4/25-kV system often used by the aforementioned REA delivery systems serving remote, sparsely populated areas. The desire for even higher distribution primary delivery voltages required an evolution of the transmission voltages used in the early years of electric system development. The 11-kV delta lines were upgraded, again by a factor of three, to 33 kV. As these were consistently operated at a 5% operating level, to reduce losses and offset voltage drop on the lines, a new nominal level of 34.5 kV was established. Power transmission lines by their nature have to carry power long distances. Since there is a voltage drop involved, the voltage is increased at the source so that the loss in the transmission lines still allow usable power to be delivered at the user location. The higher voltage is reduced by a transformer near your home to the standard 120 to 240 VAC. (MORE)

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 nominal voltage is normally expressed together with the percentage by which it is permitted to vary from that stated value. Fo…r 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. (MORE)

The length of the wire causes resistive load to be distributed along line. This accumulated resistance causes the voltage drop. Answer The voltage drop along a high-voltage transmission line isn't large in relation to the operating voltage of the line. One of the advantages (there are many) of… using high voltages is that, for a given load, the line current is relatively low -so the voltage drop along the line is also relatively low. (MORE)

And, incidentally, the correct expressions are 'line-to-line' not 'phase-to-phase', and 'line-to-neutral' not 'phase-to-neutral' (think about it, a line voltage is measured from the junctions between adjacent phases, so they cannot be 'phase to phase'!)

It depends on the type of three-phase system. If it's a three-wire system , then the phase voltage is numerically equal to the line voltage. If it's a four-wire system , then the phase voltage is numerically equal to the line voltage divided by 1.732 -in your example, this works out to be 5.77 V.
It depends on the country in which you live. In Europe, it's 230 V; in North American it's 120 V.
