A common secondary main associated with one transformer from which a group of consumers is supplied. 3. A continuous secondary main associated with two or more transformers, connected to the same primary feeder, from which a group of consumers is supplied. This is sometimes known as banking of transformer secondaries. 4. A continuous secondary main or grid fed by a number of transformers, connected to two or more primary feeders, from which a large group of consumers is supplied. This is known as a low-voltage or secondary network.
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. In some networks, where insufﬁcient fault current might cause long sections of secondary mains to be destroyed before the fault is burned clear, sections of secondary mains are fused at each end.
Dielectric heating. ) is placed between two electrodes connected to a high-frequency source; the arrangement constitutes a capacitor, and an alternating electrostatic ﬁeld will be set up in the material. ) The alternating ﬁeld passing uniformly through the material displaces or stresses the molecules, ﬁrst in one direction and then in the other as the ﬁeld reverses its polarity. Friction between the molecules occurs and generates heat uniformly throughout the material. Such friction and heat are proportional to the rate of ﬁeld reversals; hence, the higher the frequency, the faster the heating.
