anybody know where to get tables for working out cable ratings.
i have to quote on a 850 amp supply. it is in a trench most of the way and 52m long.
i normally have to phone aberdare in joburg. the technical guy worked it out to 3x 240mm 4 core armoured cables.seems a bit of an overkill.would work out to over R 160 000 just for cable.
if it is underground in a trench i also get 3 x 240mm
i am sure you know this already...but just watch the fault levels when selecting equipment and cables for that matter...
i did a project last year and was advised by everyone to use parallel cables but due to the fault level calculated at the 200 kw motor we had to use 1 x 185.
Thanks given for this post:
The fault levels do you mean p.s.c. or am I on the wrong path
