Diesel Generator Sizing Voltage Dip Calculations Worksheet

Load summary Here you just add your load connected to DG bus. Make sure the load is in kVA, if it's in kW then divide it by system power factor. Make sure to also include largest motor kW in this. Load kVA Total power consumption 1665 kVA 2081.25 kVA @ 0.85 power factor

Voltage dip at DG bus formula:

0.625301 pu 0.95 pu

(use 1.0 pu)

Calculations of motor per units currents 9.449717 % for full pu current you can always use 1.0 pu current, assuming that the system runs at full load at its rated kW. the initial pu current is the total load connected to the DG without including the largest motor. Initial power Initial current Total power Total current Initial pu Current 1424.262 kVA 1713.121 A 2277.723 kVA 2739.675 A 0.625301 pu

the above reading is the voltage dip at the main bus connected to the DG, which also will affect all other connected loads. 10% voltage dip due to starting of the largest motor while all other loads connected, is acceptable reading. Next step, should be to calculate the voltage drop at motor terminal during motor starting. And this reading should not exceed 20% of system rated voltage. Refer to worksheet #3 for the final step in the calculations.

Vd is the voltage drop on the cable caused by motor starting current.

Total Voltage Drop at Largest Motor Starting


and this value should be at all times kept less than 20%, otherwise re-do the calculations again. Maybe try different cable size (larger cable, or double run per phase).
