ONLY if you can run a single wire along side the 2-wires. If not, running a 3rd by itself will cause the magnetic field of the wire to overheat (when they're run together, the magnetic fields cancel each other out).

Short answer: Probably not.

You cannot run a separte wire all by itself if the 8-2 is in a cable assembly. It isn't allowed by code. Technically you could run 8-2 cable, and then a separate #8 within a conduit, overheating will not occur and the wires do not cancell each other out when considering magnetic fields. It is however true that Phase A and Phase B have completely opposite magnetic fields, but overheating still occurs, this is why wires are derated when they are all run in the same conduit.

Explain the comparison between dc 2 wire system and ac single phase 2 wire system and ac 3 phase 3 wire system and ac 3 phase 4 wire system?

of all of dem 3 phase 3 wire is most economical as it uses less conductor dan in 4 wire system, 3 phase 3 wire is used in transmission and 4 wire in distribution as it has 3 live and one neutral wire. 3 phase needs lesser conductor size than 2 phase 4 wire for the same power. 3 wire dc feeder is more economical than 2 wire dc feeder for the same power. that was all i cud get..... hope u find it a lil helpful.


What are the advantages disadvantages of 2 or 3 wire deep well pumps?

2 wire pumps have the start controls inside the motor, 3 wire have a separate start panel that needs to be mounted in a dry location above ground.

How do you subcract fractions?

This is very similar to addition. You first have to convert to a common denominator.For example, in 3/4 - 1/2: First convert everything to fourths: 3/4 - 2/4. Next subtract the numerators: (3-2)/4 = 1/4.This is very similar to addition.

What is larger 2 over 3 or 0.6?

Convert them both to the same format and then compare: Either: Convert the decimal to a fraction, convert both fractions to equivalent fractions with a common denominator, and compare numerators: 0.6 = 6/10 = 3/5 = 9/15 2/3 = 10/15 10 > 9 → 2/3 > 0.6 Or: Convert the fraction to a decimal and compare the decimals: 2/3 = 2 ÷ 3 = 0.666... 0.666... > 0.6 → 2/3 > 0.6
