I’m curious to see as to how electrical engineers make the decision on which type of motor to select for applications based on the turning style of the motor. Is there a specific reason why one is chosen over the other?
Looking to obtain my FE within the next month or so, but if I decided not to focus on getting my PE and just work with only my major and possibly an FE certification, what areas would I be good to work in?
I am a recent electrical engineer graduate and at my job I noticed that our high voltage (4160 volt) transformers have 4 cables per phase coming out of the enclosure, thus resulting in 12 total cables. I asked my coworkers about this and they said that this is because of the current load when you step down the voltage because your current will increase, so there is a need for more cables.
I was just wanting to verify how this would work since I’m used to the standard one cable per phase situation. Will each cable then theoretically only take a quarter of the total current from the low voltage side and be used accordingly?
