Maximum permitted voltage drop for 0.4kV is considered as 4%.


Maximum permitted voltage drop is assumed as 3% for running and 15% at busbar for starting the motors.
The cable size is selected on the basis of voltage drop and current carrying capacity for all feeders.
In case of Motors starting current is considered as 6.5 times the full load current.
Starting PF for all motors has been asssumed as : 0.3
Correction factor for cables is estimated as 0.45 for 3 or 3.5 core cable laying in Air
Rating factor for Ambient air temperatures - t(50c)
- 0.82 (REF: SUPPLIER CABLE DATA SHEET)
Grouping factor factors for cable laid in open rack(air) -0.55
