Three-phase motor questions

These questions on three-phase motors are from a Japanese examination for electricians (for second-class or junior electricians, in Japanese Denki Kouji-shi Dai-ni-shu Shiken, 電気工事士第二種試験). This exam needs to be passed to get a licence to do any kind of electrical work. All the questions on the written test are multiple-choice with four choices. The answers to the questions are at the bottom of the page.


Question 1

A three-phase induction motor has rated voltage $V$ [volts] and rated current $I$ [amps]. If it runs continuously for a fixed time $t$ [hours] at the rated values, its power consumption is $W$ kW$\cdot$h. What is the power factor of the motor?

This is question 5 from the 2016 first written exam.


Question 2

In the three phase circuit shown in the diagram, the current I (amps) is.


Question 3

In the three-phase circuit below, with source voltage E volts, the circuit is broken at the cross. In this case, the equation for the current flowing between a and c, I amps, is.

This is question 5 from the 2015 first written exam.


Question 4

In the three-phase circuit below, if each supply line has a resistance of 0.15 Ω, and the line current is 10 A, what is the electrical loss in the circuit?

This is question 6 from the 2015 first written exam.


Question 5

In the three-phase circuit shown in the diagram, when a three-phase alternating voltage is applied, twenty amps flows in each line. The line voltage $E$ in volts is:

This is question 4 from the 2014 second written exam.


Question 6

What is the total power consumption of the illustrated three-phase circuit in kilowatts?

This is question 5 from the 2014 first written exam.


Question 7

In a three-phase circuit like the one in the diagram, if the resistance of each line is $r$, and the line current is $I$ amps, the equation for the power loss in watts is

This is question 7 from the 2013 second written exam.


Question 8

In the 200 volt three-phase circuit in the diagram, the resistor from c to o is cut. Which of these are the correct voltages before and after the cut?

This is question 5 from the 2013 first written exam.
