# SAMPLE CALCULATION FORPOWER CABLE SIZE

## RATED VOLTAGE V = 415 V

(Max. Phase Current) I fl. = 31 Amp

## DERATING FACTOR D.F. = 0.552

LENGTH(Max.) L = 0.080 KM

## CABLE SELECTED IS 2R x 3C x 25 Sq.mm .

Having Current Carrying Capacity = 70Amp

## REQUIRED MINIMUM CURRENT = CURRENT CARRYING CAPACITY

Carrying Capacity of cable(after Derating) OF CABLE X DERATING FACTOR
must Be greater then the full load current = 70 x 0.552
= 38.64 Amp.which is greater then the full load
Current of motor (31 Amp.)

## PERMISIBLE VOLTAGE DROP Vst = 15% OF RATED VOLTAGE

AT STARTING = 62.25 V

## PERMISSIBLE VOLTAGE DROP Vrun =5% OF RATED VOLTAGE

AT RUNNING =20.75 V

## CABLE SELECTED IS 2R x 3C x 25 Sq.mm

NUMBER OF RUNS R =2

## 1) VOLTAGE DROP Vst = 1.732 x Ist. x L x Rac

AT STARTING

WHERE
Rac = A.C. Resistance Of Conductor Of The 3C x 25Sq mm
Cable at 70 C .
= 1.44 Ohm. / KM

Since the cable lengths are not very big, the reactance of the cables will be negligible and
hence not considered in the above mentioned calculations
So Vst. Vst. =21.37 V
Voltage Drop During Starting in
Percentage Vst.% =Vst. X 100
415
=5.15%
2) VOLTAGE DROP Vrun = 1.732 x Irun x L x Rac
AT Running Number Of Runs

WHERE
Rac = A.C. Resistance Of Conductor Of The 3C x 25Sq mm
Cable at 70 C .
= 1.44 Ohm. / KM

Since the cable lengths are not very big, the reactance of the cables will be negligible and
hence not considered in the above mentioned calculations
So t. Vrun =6.11 V
Voltage Drop During Running in
Percentage Vrun.% =Vrun. X 100
415
=1.47%

## 3)Conclusion The Voltage drop at starting 5.15% & running is

1.47%,for a motor of 45 Kw which is at a
distance of 80 meters

Is in order.
