Such transients are relatively insensitive to the load placed on the secondary. The transient may, in fact, be smaller when the transformer is loaded than unloaded. A worst-case turn-on current surge will not occur every time the transformer is energized. Among the determining factors involved is the magnitude of the applied voltage at the instant the transformer is connected. Minimum transient energy occurs when the transformer is switched on at the zero-crossing point of the sine wave. The magnitude of the turn-on current surge of an ac-to-dc power supply is determined mainly by the transformer transient and the capacitive load placed after the rectifier elements.

Most service drop transformers (12 kV to 208 V) have integral lightning arresters. In areas of severe lightning, a ground (or shield) wire is strung between the top insulators of each pole, diverting the lightning to the ground wire, and away from the hot leads. S. by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). There is no clear delineation between distribution, subtransmission, and transmission voltage levels. 2. 1 Power Distribution The distribution of power over a utility company network is a complex process involving a number of power-generating plants, transmission lines, and substations.

To prevent arcing, air switches are changed only when power is removed from the circuit. These types of switches can be motor driven or manually operated. Oil-filled circuit breakers are used at substations to interrupt current when the line is hot. The contacts usually are immersed in oil to minimize arcing. Oil-filled circuit breakers are available for operation at 500 kV and higher. Magnetic air breakers are used primarily for low-voltage indoor applications. Protection devices include fuses and lightning arresters.
