Shunts are used to bypass portions of a circuit. Shunt capacitors are frequently used to pass the high-frequency components of signals to ground. See the Wikipedia article about shunts. (Follow the web link at lower left.)
What are the differences of Long shunt vs short shunt generator?
In long shunt the shunt field winding is in parallel to both generator and series field. In short shunt the shunt field is in parallel to generator only. ...

What is it called when a child has value shunt caused of water in the brain?
The shunt used for a person who has hydrocephalus ("water on the brain") is not called a "value shunt". It is usually called a "ventriculo-peritoneal shunt" or "VP shunt" for short. Sometimes a "ventriculo-atrial shunt" or "VA shunt" is used instead. ...

How and where do you connect the white wire from the shunt breake to the electrical panel?
The white wire would go to the neutral bar. Just be sure of the shunt trip voltage required for the breaker and land the white wire on the appropriate neutral bar in the correct panel. ...

How do you hook up wire from ansul system to shunt trip breaker?
You would need to take the "input" wire for the shunt trip breaker to an electrical switch (not alarm initiating switch, which are DC voltage rated) within the Automan unit and connect to the "Common" connection and the "return", the wire to the actual shunt circuit of the breaker, from the "Normally Open" connection of the switch. When the unit activates, the switch will be placed into "Closed" position, therefore completing the circuit and activating the shunt coil. ...

Is shunt a bypass resistance?
'Shunt' is an archaic term for 'parallel', so a shunt resistor is connected in parallel with another device. For example, a shunt resistance is used in moving-coil ammeters, so that most of the load current passes through the shunt resistor, rather than the moving coil. So, in this context, yes -a shunt is a bypass resistance. ...

How is a shunt coil installed?
'Shunt' is an archaic term, meaning 'in parallel with'. So a 'shunt coil' is connected 'in parallel' with... With what, of course, depends upon what sort of device you are talking about. For example the field coil of a d.c. shunt-connected motor has its field winding connected in parallel ('shunt') with the supply. ...
