What is the rating of the main circuit breaker of the 105kw power distribution panel?

To answer this question a voltage must be stated. Main breakers are rated in amps. This is the formula for amperage. I = W/E. Amps = Watts/Volts. As you can see a


You lost a voltage leg by connecting the ground wire to the circuit breaker but com ed wires are still energized?

Yes this could be true. The breaker to the load will have tripped. The main breaker should still be allowing voltage to the distribution panel because it did not trip. If the main breaker tripped then the distribution panel must have been close to maximum amperage and the shorting of the branch circuit was enough to trip the mains.


Do circuit breaker blanks have to fit completely in the breaker panel?

Yes, the code requires a complete dead front so that no access can be made to the bare distribution bus behind the panel face.


What is a Circuit Breaker Panel?

A Circuit Breaker Panel is a electrical safety panel that controls electricity to different appliances to a building. If there is an electrical fault, the circuit is immediately broken for safety.


When a voltage leg is lost by connecting the ground wire to the circuit breaker are com ed wires still energized?

Yes this could be true. The breaker to the load will have tripped. The main breaker should still be allowing voltage to the distribution panel because it did not trip.

Does a double pole breaker double the amperage?

No. In North America a double pole breaker is used to obtain a voltage of 240 volts from the distribution panel. What ever the amperage rating stamped on the handle of the breaker is, that is the amperage that the breaker will trip at.


How is electricity supplied around a house?

Electricity is supplied around the house through a service distribution panel. From this panel specific circuit are wired to supply power to plugs, lights and appliances. Each circuit is protected by a breaker that is located in the distribution panel. These breakers vary in trip values to accommodate the load wattage's of different appliances that are connected to the circuit.


Why does a 10 A circuit breaker have a 20 on it?

Seeing that you are from Illinois you should know that in North America there are no 10 amp distribution panel breakers.


Can you upgrade a 100A main circuit breaker to a higher amp?

It depends on a number of factors. The size of the service wires, the meter rating, the main breaker panel rating, etc. will have to be rated for the amperage you want to go up to.


How to add a circuit to a breaker box?

Don't mess with an electric panel if you are not absolutely sure what you are doing. To add a circuit you need a breaker, wire sized to the new breaker and the outlets, lights or devices that are powered by the new circuit. If you have spare slots in the panel you need to get the proper breaker for the panel and just knock out the panel cover for the new breaker. If there is no space in the panel, you may be able to find a dual breaker that just takes up one space in the panel and substitute for an existing breaker.


Why would a hot wire go directly from the breaker to the neutral bar?

If this is is exactly what you are seeing then the breaker will not be resettable. The breaker will instantaneously trip. If the identified conductor comes into the distribution panel from an external circuit then this is another scenario.


Will a circuit breaker function the same if supply and loads are reversed?

Yes, a circuit breaker will function the same if supply and loads are reversed. This is the way that some sub panels are fed instead of a main disconnect at the top of the distribution panel.

No, the dishwasher uses the dedicated breaker in the distribution panel, that feeds the device to protect the circuit, should a fault occur.


Why tap in your house gives shock when it is touched or used?

Your water system is not grounded. Turn the main breaker in your distribution panel to off and ground the water system. If a "hot" wire has come into contact with the plumbing, when you turn the electrical panel main breaker back on a breaker will trip. This will give you the circuit that is at fault and a place to start looking for the short circuit.

How do you test a 30 amp circuit breaker?

If the breaker is in the distribution panel and you have a volt meter check the circuit for 120 volts to the neutral or ground. If there is 120 volts present on the terminal the breaker is operational. Turn the breaker off, if the voltage disappears the breaker is operational. It is not recommended to do a load test on a breaker of this amperage due to the high wattage load needed to trip the breaker.


How many breaker amps will a 200 amp service with no main breaker support?

Check the nameplate on the service panel. There it will tell you what the buss capacity is. On a 200 amp service nothing in the wiring configuration is allowed to be less than that the service rating. In the market there are 200 amp 42 circuit distribution panels.
