Moreover, primary feeders that originally operated as single-phase and two-phase circuits are all now essentially three-phase circuits; even those originally operated as delta ungrounded circuits are now converted to wye systems, with their neutral common to the secondary neutral conductor and grounded. Secondary voltages have changed from nominal 110/220 V singlephase values to those now operating at 120/240 V single-phase and 120/208 or 120/240 V for three-phase circuits, the 120-V utilization being applied to lighting and small-motor loads while the 208- and 240-V three-phase values are applied to larger-motor loads.

In calculating voltage drop in the circuits, both the resistance and reactance of the two conductors must be considered. ) This combination of reactance and resistance, known as impedance, is measured in ohms (µ). Because the current in the grounded neutral conductor may be less than the current in the live conductor, the voltage drop in the neutral conductor may also be less. Figure 2-2. AC single-phase three-wire system. Three-wire Systems Essentially the three-wire system is a combination of two two-wire systems with a single wire serving as the neutral of each of the two-wire systems.

These are referred to as second-contingency networks. Secondary mains not only should be so designed that they provide for an equitable division of load between transformers and for good voltage regulation with all transformers in service, but they also must Distribution System Considerations 31 Figure 2-19. Low-voltage secondary network. do so when some of the transformers are no longer in service when their primary feeders are de-energized. They must also be able to divide fault current properly among the transformers, and must provide for burning faults clear at any point while interrupting service to a minimum number of consumers; this often limits the size of secondary mains, usually to less than 500 cmil × 103, so that when additional secondary main capacity is required, two or more smaller size conductors have to be paralleled.
