What is a single-line diagram?
A4.1.1 Single-Line (One-Line) Diagram: A diagram which shows, by means of single lines and graphic symbols, the course of an electric circuit or system of circuits and the component devices or parts used therein. Having a 鈥榮ingle-line鈥?allows the diagram to stay readable despite communicating a lot of information about an electrical system.
Why do we use a single line in circuit diagram?
A single line can show all or part of a system. It is very versatile and comprehensive because it can depict very simple DC circuits, or a very complicated three-phase system. We use universally accepted electrical symbols to represent the different electrical components and their relationship within a circuit or system.
Why are electrical power grids most commonly represented in single line diagrams?
When analyzing power grids on the transmission or distribution scale, however, showing each and every conductor in electrical schematic form would make the system diagram needlessly complex. For this reason electrical power grids are most commonly represented in a single-line diagram format.
Why is it important to keep one-line diagrams up to date?
It is important to keep these one lines up to date as new gear is added, gear is removed, or changes are made. One-line diagrams are the easiest way to tell how a piece of equipment is being fed and from where. With an updated one line, you can ensure that you are safely disconnecting the gear before beginning to work on it.
