How to calculate Generator Sizing?

How to calculate Generator Sizing?

Calculation for Generator sizing Procedure The generator sizing is done based on the following conditions. a) Load Calculate from continuous. b) 10 % spare capacity for future loads. A) Calculation of total load: Total connected load as per load summary given below. (Refer to generator sizing-load-summary details ) Continuous Load Total KW  237.22 Total KVAR  0.00 Total KVA 279.08 Minimum KW =237.22 KW Maximum KVA =279.08 B) Calculation for Generator Capacity  Generator Capacity (In KVA) =Maximum Load X 1.1 = 306.99 KVA (Considering 10% spare capacity for future loads) So we select…

How to calculate electrical fault or Short circuit current?

short circuit current

Short circuit current calculation.  Purpose It plays a very important role to protect & also safety of commercial and industrial electrical equipment like circuit breakers,transformers …etc. What is short circuit current? When two or more conductors are different phases come in contact with each other in a line, transformer or any other power element, then the part of the impedance is shunted out of the circuit due to which a large current flow in the un-faulted phases, such current is called the short circuit current. It reduces the effect of impedance in…
