Jacket & Insulation
• Thermoset (Type W)
– Material is extruded onto
conductors and cured with steam
or radiation (Cf. Cake Batter)
• Thermoplastic (Type PPE)
– Material is heated to melting point,
extruded onto conductors and
then cooled in water (Cf. Chocolate)

• Demonstration of differences of cable

Cam Connectors
Features of Type W Feeder
• Double Jacket
• 2000V Rating
• Resistant to heat, abrasion and
moisture

WYE Voltages
Neutral provides return path and is grounded
for safety
Very little current on neutral when loads are
balanced
Basic Power Formulas
Load Balancing
• A, B & C have similar load (current)
• +/- 5% is acceptable
• 30-50% increase efficiency of power
source
• 20% longer life of branch/main
breakers

• Less EMF potential.

Voltage Drop
• Reduction in
voltage of an
electrical circuit.
• Result of electrical
impedance
(resistance).
• Longer distance =
more voltage
drop.
• Greater wire size =
less voltage drop.
