Fault condition

A forum set up for physics questions from students in the courses PHYS1121, 1131, 1221 and 1331 at the University of New South Wales. It is intended for questions that cannot readily be answered in class,
either because they fall outside the main syllabus and therefore would be distraction (however interesting) or for other reasons.

Fault condition

Post by jituyhgf »

Why the reactance of a system under fault condition is low and faults currents may raise dangerously high value. ?

A fault may be a short circuit, which has a low reactance and may draw a dangerously large current.
