  1. I've been rooting for you and waiting on your successful result!! Go MadamPirate!
  2. Hello my friend. I hope all is well - I like that you are being proactive in seeking information to best prepare for the exam. This kind of energy is needed to attain favorable results. I started studying with the code book for about a month and then decided to purchase the handbook. In my opinion and because I had not dealt with NEC, I found the handbook a better resource as it contains illustrations and detailed examples. I hope this helps and should you have any further questions feel free to ask. I have taken/passed on first attempts both FE & PE this year. For me, consistent active studying/understanding and taking different 8-hr timed practice exams was the key. I would sign up for Zach Stones’ class - his material is very concise, easy to follow/understand and I believe the best course to prepare you for the P.E.
  3. @LyceeFruit I am sooooo happy that you got yours. I also wanted to take the time to thank you for helping me through my prep - I honestly could not had done it without you kindly providing me the direction to prepare. I wish you nothing but the best and more. I am really really happy right now woman!!!

  6. Hey Takk90, The question asks "According to the NEC" and therefore you must use the motors' NEC FLC used to size of conductors. The author dropped the 125% on the latest errata: https://www.engproguides.com/powerreferenceexamerrata.pdf (Since 125% is for wire sizing, but we are just trying to find the actual voltage drop during 100% operation) I hope this helps.
  7. Hello - hope all is well. For Minimum Motor Conductor Ampacity, lookup the motors FLC using HP and voltage rating from NEC Tables 430.247-250. Do not use the motors nameplate FLC. If conductor serves only one motor that is continuous duty, multiply FLC (found on tables) by 125%. Hope this helps.
  8. Does the EngPro Final exam differ much from the Full Exam?
  9. For me would be the ones I’m familiar with LOL, being that I took the course in graduate school and so it comes back to me relatively quick compared the topics I’ve never seen: 3ph Power, fault analysis, rotating matches (somewhat - my power systems course touched upon this subject lightly), transmission lines and relay protection. The rest are new to me but I don’t think they’re that bad. I’m doing best to practice diff study guide problems, practice problems and will enroll next week in Zach’s course. Something gotta give lol I hope your studies are going well [emoji1545]
  10. I appreciate everyone who has taken their time to provide input. All is very value information [emoji1545].
  11. For me, I have found best in creating my own formula sheet as I am going through problems/topics (kind of like a condensed version of the study guides because I am writing notes as well). I am using graffaeo/eng proguides/the essential text book resources mentioned here.
  12. Could see the prob? I have never seen current conj used to obtain the real power
  13. Yes you are correct. What I do is convert all Voltages & Currents to their phase values and apply: V1/V2 = I2/I1 And hence solving for Vtransmission line: Vline (on Wye-side of TX1) = sqrt(3) * 12.47kV *[1130.36A/(122.57A*sqrt(3))] The root 3's cancel out and you are left with Vline = 12.47kV * (1130.36A/122.57A)
