1 Introduction This electrical calculation report presents the calculation method of electrical services in KL Sentral Station. This

report is based on standards IEC 60287-1, BS 7671, and IEC 60947-2.

2 Cable Sizing and Voltage Drop Cable are sized based on 3 calculation checking which are

1. Cable Ampacity

2. Total voltage drop

3. Short circuit withstand capacity

And the following assumption are made

1. The conductor length has tolerance of

2.1 Cable Ampacity Check

Cables are sized according to cable types and design current, based on BS 7671: 2008. According to IEE

Wiring Regulation, two conditions to be applicable;

Condition 1.

Where,

is design current

is circuit breaker current rating

is cable current carrying capacity for continuous service

e.g Nominal current rule

The nominal current of the fuse/ MCB must be less than the current rating of the cable it is protecting, but higher than the current that it will carry continuously. For example, a 32-amp MCB is suitable for a current of 30 amps in a 35-amp cable circuit.

Condition 2.

Where,

is tripping current of a circuit breaker for protection against overload.

e.g Tripping rule

A current of 1.45 times the nominal current must cause the device to trip in less than 1 hour. All modern devices

meet this requirement except re-wirable fuses. This is why re-wirable fuses are discouraged. These fuses normally require about twice the nominal current to blow them in one hour.

Example Calculation 1

For Way-1 (to DB-C-N-61) of MSB-1A, (based on DB maximum demand estimation) and .

Cable type used is multicore XLPE, armoured and LSOH sheath.

1. Calculate Derated Current Rating, . Assuming no simultaneous overload occurs on a group of cables,

is chosen based on the higher value of the following equations

and

Where

is coefficient related to ambient temperature at cable installation

is coefficient related to thermal insulation applied to cable installation

is coefficient for type of protective device or installation condition.

is coefficient taking consideration the thermal effect for cable grouping.

Hence,

due to ambient of based on Table 4B1

due to cable in free air

due to cable not installed in a buried duct and not protected by semi-enclosed fuse

due to cable installed in single layer flat touching. Maximum 3 circuits per cable tray and 3

cable trays are grouped.

Hence

2. Refer to Table 4E4A, cable size can be used because .

2.2 Voltage Drop Check

Based on Appendix 12 of BS7671, Table 12A, for private installation, allowable voltage drop from source to

equipment is 8% for general load and 6% for lighting load. To allow small size of final circuit cables for ease of

installation, voltage drop from source to sub-main distribution is set to be maximum 4.5%.

Example Calculation 2

To continue from Example Calculation 1, voltage drop at DB-C-N-61 is calculated by the following steps

1. Calculate maximum voltage drop, from Transformer to MSB-1A

• Page 3 of 9

Where,

= voltage drop per ampere per metre for the cable

= length in metre

considering contingency

From catalogue, Cu busbar has the following voltage drop per meter at rated current and 0.8 pf

Assuming the busbar is fully loaded,

2. Calculate cable voltage drop, from MSB-1A to DB-C-N-61

Where

From table 4E4B,

Hence,

So

3. Total voltage drop is calculated

which is lower than requirement of . So cable size

valid.

2.3 Short Circuit Withstand Check

Refer Section 4.3.

3 Board CPC Sizes and Disconnection Times Calculation

3.1 Determination of Disconnection Time

BS 7671:2008 regulates that for a TN-S system, at nominal supply voltage of , the disconnection time for

any fault type at any point of installation, the maximum disconnection time must not exceed for final circuit

not exceeding 32 A. For sub-main installation or final circuit more than 32 A, a disconnection time not exceeding

to be achieved.

For final circuit, line to earth fault will be the fault of lowest value. To ensure the disconnection time is achieved,

RCCB is proposed at all final circuit.

For the sub-main installation, the line to earth fault will be the fault of lowest value as well. Thus, to ensure

disconnection time criterion is met the minimum earth fault current to be determined and associated

disconnection time to be checked. If the maximum disconnection time couldnt be achieved, Earth Leakage Relay

to be introduced.

To calculate minimum prospective earth fault current, the following assumption is made

1. The incoming supply external impedance is zero.

2. Cable skin effect and proximity effect factor for CPC resistance is neglected.

3. Fault occurring during the conductors are fully loaded at rated temperature and the fault causes the

conductors to be heated until average temperature during conductor fault carrying period and the

4. The conductor length has tolerance of

After the is obtained, the disconnection time to be determined to comply with BS 7671 regulations.

Example Calculation 3

Continuing from Example Calculation 2, can be calculated by using the following formula

is busduct impedance

is XLPE cable impedance

is CPC impedance

From catalogue (refer Appendix B), at the characteristic of 5000A busduct are the following

From M&WS, chosen busduct temperature rise, must not exceed at any condition. So since

ambient is , the busduct resistance at can be used. Hence
