  2. Minimum size and rating of service-entrance conductors before the application of any adjustment or correction factors shall not be less than the sum of the noncontinous load plus 125 percent of the continous load.  What is an exception?
    Grounded conductors that are not connected to an overcurrent device shall be permitted to be sized at 100 percent of the continous and noncontinous load. NEC 230.42 A1 Exc.
  3. Regarding the conductor size of service-entrance conductors over 600 volts, nominal... they "shall not be smaller than ______awg, or ____awg in a multiconductor cable.
    6 awg, or 8 awg in a multi-conductor cable. NEC 230.202A
  4. A service point is the point of connection between the facilities of the serving utility and the premises wiring, regarding underground conductors, the point shall be considered what if there are no terminal box, meter, or other enlcosure?
    The "point of connection" shall be considered the point of entrance of the service conductors into the building. NEC 100 Service Conductors, underground: EXC.
  5. A service Lateral can be overhead? True or false?
    False.  By definition a service lateral are The underground conductors between the utility electric supply system and the service point.
  6. Regarding GFPE, The rating of the service disconnect shall be condidered to be the rating of the _______ that can be installed or the highest___________ for which the actual overcurrent device installed in a cercuit breaker is rated or can be adjusted.

    An exception is what?
    • The rating of the service disconnect shall be condidered to be the rating of the largest fuse that can be installed or the highest continous current trip setting for which the actual overcurrent device installed in a cercuit breaker is rated or can be adjusted. NEC 230.95 
    • An exception is a service disconnect for a continous industrial process where a nonorderly shutdown will inroduce addtitional or increased hazards. NEC 230.95 EXC
  7. A ground fault protection system serves only to limit damage to what and where during what type of event?
