Short Circuit Study & its Importance in Power Systems

  1. The total impedance from the source to the point of the fault
  2. The nominal voltage of the system
arc fault occur in power systems

What does this mean? and why is it important to the simple calculation?

Suppose, if we have a 480 V/220 V step-down transformer which has an impedance of 5%, this means that 5% of 480 V i.e. 24 V, applied to its primary side will cause rated load current flow in its secondary.
