It can be noted that two ranges are provided. Moreover, this difference is greater for service at more than volts to allow for additional voltage drop in transformations between service voltage and utilization equipment.
From the figure above, the following can be deduced: Range B is acceptable, but not optimal. Service voltage requirements are tighter than utilization voltage as the standard allows for some voltage drop within a facility. Premium Membership Premium membership gives you an access to specialized technical articles and extra premium content electrical guides and software.
Systems of more than volts are normally three-phase and supplied by connections 35 ungrounded, or 7. The voltage on a utility feeder changes depending on the loading on the line, the reactive power demand of the load, time of the day and many other factors.
You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. Range A is the optimal voltage range. For Systems Greater Than V. Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. The anso portions of the ranges do not apply to circuits supplying lighting load. Pacific Gas and Electric Company.
Corrective measures shall be undertaken within a reasonable time to bring back voltages within Range A limits, in cases of Range B values occurrence. Ans regulate the system voltage by switching power factor correction capacitors, tap changing transformers, voltage regulators, shunt reactors to name a few.
Voltage at the electric utility service. It should be noted that the voltage tolerance is for sustained voltage and not momentary voltage variation due to switching or fault etc. The above v84 show connections of transformer secondary windings to supply the nominal system voltages of table 1. The shaded portion of the range does not apply to V – V s ystems.

The choice of system voltage according to ANSI standard C
The switching of these voltage regulating devices is not anai and usually there is a delay of several minutes anei voltage correction to happen. Already Subscribed to this document. Need more than one copy? For V – V Systems. In distribution systems this is usually considered the voltage at the meter socket or entrance switch.
However, it is possible to design a power system that should work seamlessly across all possible excursions of the voltage as defined in the standard.
