What is a short to voltage in an automobile?

A short to voltage is when a wire that should not have battery voltage has battery voltage. This would happen if a wire had rubbed through another wire. The other cause would be an electrical component failing and sending voltage down a wire that it shouldn't. NOTE: Shorts to voltage are very uncommon. I specialize in electrical automotive repair, and I can not even recall one time I have seen a short to voltage.

Why high voltage is kept open in open circuit and low voltage is shorted in short circuit test?

In Short circuit test High Voltage side is feeded with 2-5% of the High Voltage rating to circulate approximately full load current in low voltage winding by short circuiting it. Low voltage is generally short circuited to facilitate measurements because it is more difficult to measure the quantities at high voltages.

Can a short circuit cause low voltage?

Most likely a short circuit will cause no voltage. Due to the high current on a short circuit fault the over current protection of the circuit will trip. This will cut the voltage supply off completely.

The voltage across a short circuit is equal to?

zero? the supply voltage? the supply voltage minus the individual coltage drops? the sum of the individual voltage drops? which one?

The difference between short to a voltage circuit and short to a ground circuit?

A short circuit is an abnormal connection between two nodes intended to be at different voltages. A voltage circuit is caused intentionally for the purpose of voltage sensing. A ground circuit occurs between a phase and the ground.

What is the voltage across any short circuit?


What happens to the voltage values of other resistors when a short occurs in one of them?

If a short occurs in a resistor in series with other resistors, the voltage drops across the other resistors will increase. If a short occurs in a resistor in parallel with other resistors, the voltage drops across the other resistors will decrease, to zero.

Normally a high current flows through a short circuit even if there is no change to the voltage. Why is this?

A high current flows through a short circuit even if there is no voltage change because the resistance across the short circuit is zero.

What is short circuit voltage?

Short circuit voltage is the voltage that has to be applied to the primaries of a transformer, so that the nominal current flows through the secondaries, when they are shorted. This value is important, if transformer secondaries shall be used in parallel. Ideally all transformers with parallel secondaries should have the same short circuit voltage. When their short circuit voltages are different, the transformer with the lower short circuit voltage will be loaded more than their relationship of power ratings would predict. The short circuit voltage is also important in the design of a transformer, because it predicts, how much the secondary voltage will drop at nominal output current. This knowledge helps the designer to find out, how many further windings the secondary needs for a certain voltage in relation to an ideal transformer. Short circuit voltage is also known as impedance voltage.

What is output short circuit current?

The output short circuit current is the solar cell's current when the voltage is zero, or when it, is short circuited.
