What is nominal voltage?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

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.

Why is it not good to operate a transformer above its nominal voltage?

Overexcited Transformer.  Operation above the rated supply voltage causes the ferromagnetic core to enter saturation; this means that the primary inductance is reduced and s

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

What are nominals?

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.

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 valu

What is meant by nominal current or nominal voltage?

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

What is nominal zener voltage?

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

What is difference between nominal and terminal voltage?

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

What is the nominal supply voltage?

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

What is the nominal zone circuit voltage in an Addressable Fire Alarm System?

When we discuss fire panels and "nominal" voltage on a circuit we must first determine what type of circuit. Addressable panels can have varied circuits that all perform diffe

What is the Difference between nominal voltage and operating voltage?

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

Are 250 voltage reading considered to be nominal 240 volts?

Different countries have different legal limits to how much their electricity supply voltages may vary. In the UK, for example, the nominal supply voltage for residential supp
