File Structure

1.3 File Structure


Project Database
Each e-DPP project that you create builds a new database, which contains all e-DPP tables.
The e-DPP project can be copied and renamed outside of e-DPP if it does not require a password.
WARNING: If you delete this file after e-DPP has created it, you may not be able to open and retrieve
your project database.

Modifying the e-DPP Database


When viewing the e-DPP database via a DBMS (such as Microsoft Access), it is very important that
certain fields in the database not be changed. General rules for modifying the e-DPP project database
are given below.

You cannot change any database field labeled Final Data, IID, Revision, Issue, ID (Name)
You may change the engineering data and comments of elements in the database. However, many
engineering data fields are related by the engineering logic built into e-DPP editors. For example,
for a motor the fields HP, FLA, PF, EFF, and kVA are related. Changing only one of these fields
may cause problems in e-DPP's editors because it calculates some fields based on values in other
fields.
You cannot add or delete records in any table from MS Access.

There is no guarantee that ELTECHS Engineering & Consulting Co., Ltd. can help you reconstruct
your database if you have modified some of the aforementioned fields.

Inserting Additional Columns in the e-DPP Database


General guidelines for inserting additional columns/fields into the e-DPP project database are given
below.

Construct the database using e-DPP.


Add all system elements using e-DPP's GUI. e-DPP internally allocates the correct database
identifiers (IIDs) for all components. IIDs CANNOT be changed or allocated by the user.
Add any new column you may want to embed in e-DPP's tables. e-DPP will NOT directly
utilize the columns nor assign default values to them. e-DPP will not remove the additional
columns.

Other System Tables


Do not modify the contents of tables whose names are suffixed with "_R".
revision control and, therefore, their contents should not be altered.

Overview

e-DPP organizes your work on a project basis. Each project provides all the necessary engineering and
design tools and supports for generating a number of project documents. A project consists of an
electrical database that requires a unique set of electrical components within a certain kind of
equipment or material.

e-DPP Deliverables and Operation Flow

3.1 e-DPP Deliverables and Operation Flow


The overall picture of e-DPP deliverables and operation flow are illustrated as below.

e-DPP allows users to import external data files, such as ETAP project database, MS Excel work sheet and MS Access database.
The main data table of e-DPP is "Electrical Load Database (DPPElecLoad)" and a number of child tables are created from or linked to as shown above.

Database Relation with ETAP Power Simulator

3.2 Database Relation with ETAP Power Simulator


e-DPP is also a complementary software of ETAP Power Simulator. Meaning data exchange
between the software is possible. Generally, the structure of the database of e-DPP is designed as
close as possible with the database of ETAP to observe compatibility. Between the databases,
however, still differences exist. Therefore, an intermediate database is introduced to bridge those
differences.

3.2.1 General Features


This chapter describes general features of e-DPP interface with ETAP Power Simulator.
The interface is realized by setting up an intermediate .mdb file between ETAP and e-DPP.
Fig-3.1.1 "e-DPP Interface with ETAP" illustrates the basic relation of those databases. The
intermediate file contains several tables that correspond to those of ETAP.
e-DPP accesses and imports all tables contained in the intermediate file so that e-DPP can make the
best use of ETAP database presenting a number of parameters for electrical equipment. On the other
hand, e-DPP exports its own database to ETAP via the intermediate file so that any changes occurred
in e-DPP environment can be reflected on ETAP database as far as ETAP permits (e.g. System
topology may not be allowed to change).

3.2.2 Table Relation


ETAP project tables that require being accessed by the interface program are for the following
equipment (the names of corresponding ETAP tables are presented in the parentheses);
1) Induction motor
2) Static load
3) MOV
4) Capacitor
5) Cable
6) Lumped load
7) Synchronous motor
8) UPS
9) Charger
10) Battery
11) VFD
12) 2-windings transformer
13) 3-windings transformer
14) Synchronous generator
15) Composite motor

(IndMotor, IndMotorH1)
(StaticLoad, StaticLoadH1)
(MOV, MOVH1)
(CAP, CAPH1)
(Cable, CableH1, CableH2)
(Lump, LumpH1, LumpH2)

(XFMR2, XFMR2H1, XFMR2H2)
(XFMR3, XFMR3H1, XFMR3H2)
(SynGen, SynGenH1, SynGenH2)
(CompositeMotor)

In addition to the above equipment datatable, the following 2 information tables are also required for
e-DPP and accessed by the interface program;

Overview

Database Relation with ETAP Power Simulator

Although ETAP users are able to access ETAP project file either by MS-Access directly or through
ODBC driver, the main reason why the intermediate file became necessary is that some of essential
data in e-DPP do not exist in ETAP project .mdb file. The apparent reason is that an entire ETAP
project file is too huge to treat by e-DPP and contains a plenty of tables that are not required by e-DPP.
The intermediate file is created from one or more than one corresponding tables of ETAP depending
on the kind of equipment or e-DPP functions. Records for some components in H1 or H2 table are
sometimes not created by ETAP even if the records for those components exist in a master table. In
that case, the fields in the intermediate tables coming from H1 or H2 will become blank.
Fig-3.1.2 below illustrates the relation of the tables among ETAP, e-DPP and the intermediate files.

Templates and Documents

3.4 Templates and Documents


What is "Template"?
"Template" is a format of each document that is produced by e-DPP and consists of two (2) elements,
i.e. MS-Excel sheet and the property table (Master).
e-DPP has built in a number of standard templates that are read-only and not editable. You can export
e-DPP database to MS-Excel via those standard templates in each particular format of document. Also,
you can create or copy them to your own templates with the Template Design function. For more
information on Template Design, see Chapter 15, Template.
Each template belongs to a certain category, and each category belongs to a certain table of e-DPP
project database. The figure below indicates that hierarchy. One template corresponds to one document
format and related to the same name of MS-Excel file (e.g. Template = "DPPElecLoad1", MS-Excel
file = "DPPElecLoad1.xls").

Scope of Total Load Calculation Method
As described in Chapter 12 (Method of Total Load Calculation), there are 3 different methods
available in Load Summary calculation:
1. [Total Load Demand] x [Coincidence Factor] (Method "1")
TotalKW =
(ContCF*TotalContKW+InterCF*TotalInterKW+SpareCF*TotalSpareKW)/100
2. Largest Individual Load (Method "2")
3. Larger one out of the above two (Method "3")

Calculating the Total Load involves the summation of the products of all loads (continuous,
intermittent and spare) and their corresponding coincidence factor as shown on the formula above for
the method "1". The same formula is also applied to the method "3" as an alternative.
However, with this option user may select "Load Operation Modes" (continuous, intermittent and
spare) to include in the calculation as desired. When a "Continuous" box is checked (same applies to
intermittent and spare) the method selected in the Load Summary menu will be applied. Conversely,
when the "Continuous" box is not checked (same applies with intermittent and spare), the method "1"
will be applied. (Note: these "Load Operation Mode" checkboxes functions separately with the
selected method from the Load Summary menu.)

When no record with the same ID exists


Once an external MS Access file has been imported, the destination table of e-DPP project database
should already have some records. When an external data are imported into the same table from the
second time, user is allowed to select one of the options as shown below:

Insert new records


If there are one or more records in the external file that do not exist in e-DPP target table, the new
records will be inserted to e-DPP table.
Note: This option must be selected at the first time of import.

Do not insert new records


When this option is selected, any new records in the external file will not be imported to e-DPP
table. Only the existing data in e-DPP table will be updated if the other option When a record
with the same ID exists Overwrite is selected.

Default Data
The field values Equipment Type (field name = EquipType) and Output Unit (field name =
HP_KW) are essential for e-DPP to properly perform the various operations and calculations.
e-DPP will not work as expected when Equipment Type and Output Unit fields are empty. In
that regard, option Default Data was added in order for users to populate data for the said fields
during the import process. Please be advised that a specific field (i.e. EquipType, HP_KW) must
be mapped from User Field (Source File) to e-DPP Field (Destination File) for these options to
work. Also, e-DPP will populate data (based from the selected Default Data options) during the
import process on a record with a blank/empty Equipment Type and Output Unit fields or replace
the contents (data which are not on the value list of said fields) with the appropriate data.

Equipment Type
Select Induction Motor or Static Load option.

Output Unit
Select HP, kW or kVA option.
Note: Even if the source datum is blank, the value 0 (zero) will not be substituted automatically
and should be explicitly selected.

ID suffix
This option is available for the table DPPElecLoad only.

Extract ID suffix
If user wants to extract a suffix letter from equipment ID, check this checkbox.
e-DPP program automatically extracts suffixes according to the following selected criteria;

Only one(1) alphabet (e.g. PM-1200A, PM-1200B)


The last alphabetical character (letter) of series of IDs with only one trailing letter after a
numerical or non-alphabetical character is extracted as suffix of the said IDs. These IDs
then are grouped as one having identical properties. For example, the IDs "PM-1200A"
and "PM-1200B" are appearing to be in series and differentiated by the last letter. Since
the last letter is preceded by a numerical character "0", then this letter will be extracted i.e.
"A" and "B" from "PM-1200A" and "PM-1200B" respectively. In other words,
"PM-1200A" and "PM-1200B" will be grouped as "PM-1200" with suffixes "A" and "B".

Up to two(2) alphabets (e.g. P-1200-MA, P-1200-MB)


The last alphabetical character (letter) of series of IDs with up to two trailing letters after a
numerical or non-alphabetical character is extracted as suffix of the said IDs. These IDs
then are grouped as one having identical properties. For example, the IDs "PM-1200MA"
and "PM-1200MB" are appearing to be in series and differentiated by the last letter. Since
the last two letters is preceded by a numerical character "0", then the last letter will be
extracted i.e. "A" and "B" from "PM-1200MA" and "PM-1200MB" respectively. In other
words, "PM-1200MA" and "PM-1200MB" will be grouped as "PM-1200M" with suffixes
"A" and "B". In addition, the option "Only one(1) alphabet" explained above will also
qualify under this option.

Any number of alphabets (e.g. SS10-PANELA, SS10-PANELB)


The last alphabetical character (letter) of series of IDs with up to any number of trailing
letters after a numerical or non-alphabetical character is extracted as suffix of the said IDs.
These IDs then are grouped as one having identical properties. For example, the IDs
"PM-1200XGMA" and "PM-1200XGMB" seem to be in series and differentiated by the
last letter. Since the last four letters (or any number of letters in another case) is preceded
by numerical character "0", then the last letter will be extracted i.e. "A" and "B" from
"PM-1200XGMA" and "PM-1200XGMB" respectively.
In other words,
"PM-1200XGMA" and "PM-1200XGMB" will be grouped as "PM-1200XGM" with
suffixes "A" and "B". In addition, the option "Only one(1) alphabet" and "Up to two(2)
alphabets" explained above will also qualify under this option.

6.2.1

Rules and Restriction

Here are some rules and restrictions in preparing the MS Excel sheet you are importing.

ID has to be included in MS Excel sheet.


One motor/load item has to be presented in a row of MS Excel sheet. For example, when you
intend to import two (2) motor loads PM-1200A/B, two rows for PM-1200A and PM-1200B have
to be included in MS Excel sheet.
If there are discrepancies in the technical data among the same motor/load items, e.g. between
PM-1200A and PM-1200B, a row (record) that is located physically at the top in MS Excel is
adopted in e-DPP database.
e-DPP treats load voltage in kilo-volts (not volt). Therefore, the numerical value being imported
to this field is interpreted in kilo-volts.
Expressions or Macro functions built in cells of MS Excel are ignored and treated as a blank cell.
When the source cell in MS Excel sheet is of Boolean type, TRUE is converted to 1, and
FALSE to 0 in e-DPP.

Select one of the existing Mapping ID from the pull down list of which you want to retrieve a
particular pre-mapping setup. Once any ID is selected, all data stored in the database are populated
in the dialog and the second tab Mapping is automatically selected. The dialog can be maximized
and resized.
Note:
There are eleven (11) system-defined Mapping IDs which correspond to e-DPP standard templates
namely;
1) DPPCabSizingData (E-Standard)
2) DPPElecCable1 (E-Standard)
3) DPPElecCable2 (E-Standard)
4) DPPElecLoad1 (E-Standard)
5) DPPElecLoad2 (E-Standard)
6) DPPElecOthers1 (E-Standard)
7) DPPElecOthers2 (E-Standard)
8) DPPLoadSumData (E-Standard)
9) DPPMotorChar (E-Standard)
10) DPPMotorSch1 (E-Standard)
11) DPPMotorSch2 (E-Standard)
These system-defined Mapping IDs cannot be altered nor deleted. They can only be copied.
The shipped Mapping ID Example (EXCEL) is always linked to the MS Excel file Example.xls
that is placed in the subfolder Example under the e-DPP installed folder (e.g. C:Program
FileseDPPv400Example).
If user wants to customize this example Mapping ID, it is required to copy it to a new ID first and
then copy Example.xls file to any location.

When a record with the same ID exists


If your particular table has already data in it, you need to select one of the options from "Do not
overwrite", "Overwrite" or "Replace entire table".

Do not overwrite
When "Do not overwrite" option is selected, any field values for the same ID will not be
overwritten even though the field values in the existing DPP table are not blank or not zero.

Overwrite
When "Overwrite" option is selected, any field values for the same ID will be overwritten
regardless of the field values in DPP table.
In both options, new ID found in MS Excel sheet is added to DPP table.

Replace entire table


When "Replace entire table" option is selected, the existing table (any DPP Table) will be deleted
before the data import action is taken place and an external MS Excel data will be newly imported
as if there was no existing table. As the previous table (e.g. DPPElecLoad) is automatically copied
to another name of table (DPPElecLoad_Backup), you can restore the previous data any time by
copying or renaming it.

When no record with the same ID exists


Once an external MS Excel file has been imported, the destination table of e-DPP project database
should already have some records. When an external data are imported into the same table from the
second time, user is allowed to select one of the options as shown below:

Insert new records


If there are one or more records in the external file that do not exist in e-DPP target table, the new
records will be inserted to e-DPP table.
Note: This option must be selected at the first time of import.

Do not insert new records


When this option is selected, any new records in the external file will not be imported to e-DPP
table. Only the existing data in e-DPP table will be updated if the other option When a record
with the same ID exists Overwrite is selected.

Default Data
The field values Equipment Type (field name = EquipType) and Output Unit (field name =
HP_KW) are essential for e-DPP to properly perform the various operations and calculations. e-DPP
will not work as expected when Equipment Type and Output Unit fields are empty. In that
regard, option Default Data was added in order for users to populate data for the said fields during
the import process. Please be advised that a specific field (i.e. EquipType, HP_KW) must be
mapped from User Field (Source File) to e-DPP Field (Destination File) for these options to work.
Also, e-DPP will populate data (based from the selected Default Data options) during the import
process on a record with a blank/empty Equipment Type and Output Unit fields or replace the
contents (data which are not on the value list of said fields) with the appropriate data.

Equipment Type
Select Induction Motor or Static Load option.

Output Unit
Select HP, kW or kVA option.
Note: Even if the source datum is blank, the value 0 (zero) will not be substituted automatically
and should be explicitly selected.

Options for Electrical Load Table

ID suffix
This option is available for the table DPPElecLoad only.

Extract ID suffix
If user wants to extract a suffix letter from equipment ID, check this checkbox.
e-DPP program automatically extracts suffixes according to the following selected criteria;

Only one(1) alphabet (e.g. PM-1200A, PM-1200B)


The last alphabetical character (letter) of series of IDs with only one trailing letter after a
numerical or non-alphabetical character is extracted as suffix of the said IDs. These IDs then

ELTECHS Engineering & Consulting Co., Ltd

Data Import

Import MS Excel

are grouped as one having identical properties. For example, the IDs "PM-1200A" and
"PM-1200B" are appearing to be in series and differentiated by the last letter. Since the last
letter is preceded by a numerical character "0", then this letter will be extracted i.e. "A" and
"B" from "PM-1200A" and "PM-1200B" respectively. In other words, "PM-1200A" and
"PM-1200B" will be grouped as "PM-1200" with suffixes "A" and "B".

Up to two (2) alphabets (e.g. P-1200-MA, P-1200-MB)


The last alphabetical character (letter) of series of IDs with up to two trailing letters after a
numerical or non-alphabetical character is extracted as suffix of the said IDs. These IDs then
are grouped as one having identical properties. For example, the IDs "PM-1200MA" and
"PM-1200MB" are appearing to be in series and differentiated by the last letter. Since the
last two letters is preceded by a numerical character "0", then the last letter will be extracted
i.e. "A" and "B" from "PM-1200MA" and "PM-1200MB" respectively. In other words,
"PM-1200MA" and "PM-1200MB" will be grouped as "PM-1200M" with suffixes "A" and
"B". In addition, the option "Only one(1) alphabet" explained above will also qualify under
this option.

Any number of alphabets (e.g. SS10-PANELA, SS10-PANELB)


The last alphabetical character (letter) of series of IDs with up to any number of trailing letters
after a numerical or non-alphabetical character is extracted as suffix of the said IDs. These
IDs then are grouped as one having identical properties.
For example, the IDs
"PM-1200XGMA" and "PM-1200XGMB" are appearing to be in series and differentiated by
the last letter. Since the last four letters (or any number of letters in another case) is preceded
by numerical character "0", then the last letter will be extracted i.e. "A" and "B" from
"PM-1200XGMA" and "PM-1200XGMB" respectively. In other words, "PM-1200XGMA"
and "PM-1200XGMB" will be grouped as "PM-1200XGM" with suffixes "A" and "B". In
addition, the option "Only one(1) alphabet" and "Up to two(2) alphabets" explained above
will also qualify under this option.

Bus/Switchboard Tables
This option is available for the table DPPElecLoad only.

Create/Update bus and switchboard tables automatically


The data for buses and switchboards are used for the load summary calculation, creating a
datasheet, exporting to ETAP, etc. and stored in the tables DPPBus and DPPPanel respectively.
As a certain part of data is also included in DPPElecLoad, it is possible to create those tables
from DPPElecLoad automatically when the external data are imported to DPPElecLoad.

Insert new records


If there are one or more bus or switchboard ID (field names = Bus or Panel) in the
external file to be imported to DPPElecLoad that do not exist in DPPBus or DPPPanel table,
the new records will be inserted to DPPBus or DPPPanel.
The other relevant data will be also imported as well as the bus or switchboard ID as
indicated below:

This option is available for MS Excel import only

Terminal Cell
Terminate by blank cell
Check this option to terminate the importation of records from MS Excel by virtue of a blank
cell or consecutive blank cells.

Number of consecutive blank cells (Max. 99)


Enter the number of consecutive blank cells as criteria of Terminate by blank cell option.

Terminate by specific string


Check this option to terminate the importation of records from MS Excel by virtue of specific
string.

Specific String (Max. 32 Chr)


Enter the specific string as criteria of Terminate by specific string option.
Note: When both "Terminate by blank cell" and "Terminate by specific string" are not checked,
data import process will terminate automatically after detecting 100 consecutive blank
cells.

Boolean Type Source Data


While both MS Excel and MS Access have the particular data type Boolean that takes TRUE or
FALSE value only, it is common practice for MS Excel users to use various symbols or strings to
represent Boolean data.
To provide users with flexibility, user is allowed to specify any symbols or strings for that
purpose before the import action takes place.
Note: For MS Excel import, user must consider the best selection for options/combinations (i.e.
checking both "YES" | "Yes" | "yes" and "NO" | "No" | "no" options when importing with a
Yes or No source data) to have a good results.

Data Import

Import MS Excel

Op
To all mapped numeric type fields, you can select arithmetic operators (+,-,x,/) or a LUT (Look-up
Table) in the pull down list available in this column for each field. Generally, there are two
categories involved as follows:

Arithmetic Operators
The arithmetic operators (+,-,x,/) are utilized to vary the magnitude of the raw data (data to be
imported) to another value. During the import process e-DPP performs a mathematical
operation according to the selected operator (e.g. "+") with the raw data as mapped from Field
(Source File) by an object entered in the Operand column.
To illustrate one of the practical uses of this procedure, let say that voltages to be imported are
expressed in unit of volt but since e-DPP uses unit of voltage in "kV" it is necessary to perform
conversion. You can do the conversion outside of e-DPP (edit directly the source file) before the
import process or do such during the import process. To do such during import process, in field
name "kV" in e-DPP Field (Destination File), select an arithmetic operator in Op column "/"
(division) and enter a value of "1000" in the Operand column, e-DPP will divide the raw data
by 1000 during the import process and will result to "kV".

LUT
"LUT" short for "Look-up Table" is a way of converting the raw data (data to be imported) into
data understandable to e-DPP. This procedure is useful when the raw data is presented in
another format that e-DPP cannot directly recognize. For example, in usual schedule
(document) the power rating of certain equipment is literally written in "kW". Human being can
understand this symbol but e-DPP cannot because it was not structured to directly understand
such (due to data handling in the database). Instead, e-DPP understood "1" for such symbol
(kW). To resolve this issue, the LUT system is implemented.
As the word "Look-up Table" implies, a table is utilized to compare the raw data and if matches
are found, the data corresponding to the raw data will be the ones which will be imported to
e-DPP database. When "LUT" is selected, a button "Show.." will surface in the "Operand"
column. Clicking this button will show a table which will be the one to be utilized as the
look-up table for the particular field.

Below is a sample of a Look-up Table for field "HP_KW".

ELTECHS Engineering & Consulting Co., Ltd

e-DPP 4.0.2

Data Import

Import MS Excel

In the above table, there are two columns, "User Data" and "e-DPP Data". The data under "User
Data" are the representation of the raw data. An equivalent data (recognized by e-DPP) for each
"User Data" is assigned in the "e-DPP Data" column. During the import process, if the raw data
matches one of the data in the "User Data" column, the equivalent data in "e-DPP Data" column
will be ones which will be imported to e-DPP database.
Note: a) The raw data should match the ones indicated in the "User Data" column of a relevant
Look-up Table. If match is not found for a particular field of particular record
(equipment), no data (blank) will be imported.
b) The structure (i.e. the contents) of the LUT(s) can be edited in menu Default
Value List

Operand
This column works together with Op as mentioned above. When arithmetic operator is selected in
the OP column, a value entered in here (Operand) will serve as the object of the mathematical
operation. While when LUT is selected in OP column, a "Show..." button will surface here to
view the applicable Look-up Table being utilized to the particular field.
Note: If you select "*" (multiplication) in the Op but didn't enter any figure in the Operand, e-DPP
performs the multiplication by zero. On the other hand, if you select "/" (division) in the Op
but didn't enter any figure in the Operand, e-DPP skips the arithmetic operation to avoid an
overflow.

The Add dialog box consists of five (5) tabs and only one tab from them becomes valid depending

The procedure how this Add dialog is prepared is that any item ID is strictly controlled by e-DPP
since duplication of IDs could collapse most of transactions or processes of e-DPP.
For more details, see Section 7.2.

You can control the priorities of estimating the filter expressions by enabling or disabling these
buttons.
Initial Filter
Some of the templates have their own filter condition that becomes effective when the template is
"initially" opened. You can remove this filtering by clicking on the Set button of the Initial Filter
and then clicking on OK button.
Since a table of e-DPP, e.g. DPPElecLoad, is generally assigned to more than one template, e.g.
Electrical Load Schedule and Induction Motor Data Sheet, the initial filtering is required to
extract the data belonging to the selected template only. (For example, a heater load may be
included in the Electrical Load Schedule, but that will never be presented in the Induction Motor
Data Sheet. This is why the initial filter is necessary for the individual templates.)
SQL WHERE clause
If you are familiar with SQL statements and the field configurations of e-DPP database, you may
directly enter SQL "Where" clause as a part of SQL "Select" statement. However, grammar errors
are not checked on this dialog.

7.1.3 Add Command for Specific Templates


7.1.3.1 Electrical Load

Item ID in the Electrical Load Schedule has a quite similar nature reflecting the actual
plant-engineering environment. Generally, one load item may have more than one identical entity (in
terms of size & characteristic). For example, a pump motor item PM-1200 consists of running and
spare machines and then named as PM-1200A and PM-1200B respectively. However, if these two (2)
machines have the same characteristics then they can be treated as one item with respect to equipment
specification.
e-DPP considers such situation and has several fields to compose an ID, i.e. IDBody and IDsuffix.
ID
IDBody
IDsuffix

= PM-1200A
= PM-1200
=A

ID
IDBody
IDsuffix

= PM-1200B
= PM-1200
=B

e-DPP gathers the records having the same IDBody in the table DPPElecLoad, and can indicate such
identical items as "PM-1200A/B" on the Edit Form when Compress button
is clicked.
The suffixes are restricted to alphabets A-Z (uppercase only) and therefore the number of identical
items is limited to 26.
New ID
Enter IDBody without suffix as described above.
Find button
Check if the same IDBody already exists in the table. If it exists, enter a different New ID.

project defaults. Depending on whether you select ANSI or IEC Standard, e-DPP uses different
element symbols for the Motor Sequence diagrams (JIS symbols are not available.).
The value lists used for the pull-down boxes on all the edit forms are also dependent on the Standard
ANSI, IEC or JIS. Note that after you change the standard, the value lists are newly created and the

8.3.1 Loading Categories


By selecting Loading Categories, you can customize the name of any of 3 loading categories (the
remaining 7 categories are reserved for future use). You can change these names at any time when
running the project. Each name may be up to 12 characters.

When you run the load summary calculation, you can select any of these loading categories on the
dialog and the calculation is performed using individual % loading values specified to each load.
Running the load summary or lumped motor calculation, e-DPP uses the percent loading of the
specified loading category to calculate the operating power factor and efficiency of motors from the
values of power factor and efficiency specified at 100%, 75% and 50% loading. This is accomplished
by using a linear interpolation method. The calculated power factor and efficiency are then used to
calculate the operating kW and kvar loading.
(Note: % Loading can be modified as desired by the user on "Editor Selection" "All Elec. Loads"
"Input Data for Load Summary".)

Data Filling

e-DPP provides a function to fill up a number of table fields with the defaults data specified by user or
the field values of the other upstream (source) tables.

Data Filling

Outline

11.1 Outline
The target tables into which the Data Filling is performed are:

Induction Motors
Static Loads
Cable
Switchgear / MCC
LCS

(DPPElecLoad table)
(DPPElecLoad table)
(DPPCable table)
(DPPSwgrMcc table)
(DPPLCS)

The table relations for the Data Filling are illustrated below.

The Electrical Load Schedule table is filled out with the defaults data specified in the Motor Default
(See Section 10.2) and Static Load Default (See Section 11.3) tables, and also with Motor and Cable
libraries.
Therefore, the fields for induction motors and static loads in the Electrical Load Schedule table will be
filled. The other type of equipment, e.g. SM, MOV, Capacitor, will NOT be filled out with any values
(in this e-DPP version).
Note: The records of table that will be targeted by the Data Filling can be protected against
overwriting by means of the flag "Lock" (Field name is [FinalData]).

A great part of Electrical Load Schedule (DPPElecLoad) may be filled up with default data defined in
Project Information (DPPProjectRec), Motor Default Data (DPPMotorDefault), Static Load Default
Data (DPPStaticDefault), Motor Library (LIBMotor) and Cable Library (LIBCable) by selecting the
menu bar "Defaults - Data Filling - Motor".

However, if the field DPPElecLoad [FinalData] ("Lock") is "Yes", "Data Filling" is not performed on
the record. If you like to overwrite the record, [FinalData] needs to be altered to "No" prior to
overwriting as shown above.

Changing the Manufacturer Name in this dialog does not affect the field values in the Electrical Load
Schedule (DPPElecLoad [MFRName]).

LV Motor
Same as "HV Motor" except that the filtering key is KV <= 1.0.

Enclosure Type Page


When the check box "Apply Default Enclosure Type" is selected, the pull down box that shows the
uniquely filtered Enclosure Types of the motor library will appear. A default value shown in this box is
"TEFC".
When this check box is checked and DPPElecLoad [EnclosureType] is blank, a search key is set to
the selected value of the pull down box.
When this check box is checked and DPPElecLoad [EnclosureType] is not blank, an actual value of
DPPElecLoad [EnclosureType] has priority as a search key.
When this check box is not checked, the actual values of DPPElecLoad [EnclosureType] including
"blank" values have priorities as a search key.
(This means that non-blank values have always priorities.)
The default status of this check box is "Checked".
Changing the Enclosure Type in this dialog does not affect the field values in the Electrical Load
Schedule (DPPElecLoad [EnclosureType]).
When "OK" button is finally clicked, all the above options set by a user are saved in the system and

By Motor Default Data (DPPMotorDefault)


Most of the applicable fields in DPPElecLoad are filled with contents in DPPMotorDefault as they
are, with no alternation. The exceptions are shown below.

(1) Standard Dependent Fields


e-DPP switches default values of the standard dependent fields reflecting the selected standard in
DPPProjectRec [Standard]. An example of such field is [DegreeProtection].
i)

[SpaceHeaterHV] & [SpaceHeaterLV]


[SpaceHeaterHV] and [SpaceHeaterLV] are transferred to DPPElecLoad [SpaceHeater]
on the following conditions;
[SpaceHeaterHV] is applied to records of [KV] > 1.0 and [HP_KW] >= xxx.
[SpaceHeaterLV] is applied to records of [KV] <= 1.0 and [HP_KW] >= yyy.
Where xxx and yyy are values specified in the Default Data Induction Motor.
For more details, refer to Chapter-10.2.2.

Data Filling

Motor (Induction Motors)

Only when the resultant DPPELecLoad [SpaceHeater] = Yes, the associated fields
[SpaceHeaterPhase] and [SpaceHeaterVolt] are transferred from DPPMotorDefault.
When DPPELecLoad [SpaceHeater] is changed to "No" from "Yes" by Data Filling,
DPPELecLoad [SpaceHeaterPhase] and [SpaceHeaterVolt] will be cleared.
ii) [BearingRTDQtyHV] & [BearingRTDQtyLV]
[BearingRTDQtyHV] and [BearingRTDQtyLV] are transferred to DPPElecLoad
[BearingRTDQty] on the following conditions;
[BearingRTDQtyHV] is applied to records of [KV] > 1.0 and [HP_KW] >= xxx.
[BearingRTDQtyLV] is applied to records of [KV] <= 1.0 and [HP_KW] >= yyy.
Where xxx and yyy are values specified in the Default Data Induction Motor.
For more details, refer to Chapter-10.2.2.
At the same time, DPPElecLoad [BearingRTD] is set "Yes" if the resultant DPPElecLoad
[BearingRTDQty] is not zero. When DPPELecLoad [BearingRTDQty] is changed to zero
from non-zero values by Data Filling, DPPELecLoad [BearingRTD] will be changed to
"No".
iii) [WindingRTDQtyHV] & [WindingRTDQtyLV]
The same procedure as the above ii) is applied.
iv) [BearingRTDType] & [WindingRTDType]
These 2 fields are filled up only when the corresponding quantities [BearingRTDQty] and
[WindingRTDQty] are not zero.
When DPPELecLoad [BearingRTD] or [WindingRTD] is changed to "No" from "Yes" by
Data Filling, DPPELecLoad [BearingRTDType] or [WindingRTDType] will be cleared
respectively.
v) [LCSLengthValue]
When "Power Cable" is selected for Data Filling on the entrance menu, [LCSLengthValue]
is filled out with the same value [LengthValue].
vi) [SHLengthValue] & Other Fields Related to SH Cable
When "Power Cable" is selected for Data Filling on the entrance menu and the resultant
DPPELecLoad [SpaceHeater] = Yes, [SHLengthValue] is filled out with the same value
[LengthValue] for Power Cable.
Moreover, the following 6 fields related to SH cables are synchronized with the resultant
DPPELecLoad [SpaceHeater] (Yes or No) as well as [SHLengthValue].
[SHCableID]
[SHCableTypeText]
[SHCableVoltage]
[SHNumberOfWires]
[SHUnitsOfWire]
[SHCabSize]
That is, only when DPPELecLoad [SpaceHeater] is "Yes", the above 6 fields are filled out.
When it's "No", these fields plus [SHCableODValue], [SHCondODValue] will be cleared.
vii) [PowerCableID] (DPPElecLoad)
When [PowerCableIDHead] and [PowerCableIDFoot] of DPPMotorDefault are not
empty, [PowerCableID] in DPPElecLoad is filled up with the following string;

ELTECHS Engineering & Consulting Co., Ltd.

10-7

e-DPP 4.0.2

Data Filling

[PowerCableID]

Motor (Induction Motors)

= [PowerCableIDHead] + [PowerCableIDFoot]

When [PowerCableIDHead] is "Item No.", a content of [PowerCableIDHead] becomes a


variable (a pointer to the other field or sequential numbers). For example, if
[PowerCableIDHead] = "Item No." ([ID]), [ID] = "PM-1200A" and [PowerCableIDFoot]
= "P":
[PowerCableID] = [PowerCableIDHead] + [PowerCableIDFoot]
= [ID] + [PowerCableIDFoot]
= "PM-1200A" + "P"
= "PM-1200A-P" (A hyphen is automatically inserted.)
The above procedures and rules are analogically applied to the other cable categories; LCS,
CCR and Space heater.
The same combination among Power, LCS, CCR and SH is not permitted because this may
produce the same cable ID. (Cable ID has to be always unique in an overall project.)
For example, when [PowerCableIDHead] & [SHCabelIDHead] = "Item No." ([ID]) and
[PowerCableIDFoot] & [SHCableIDFoot] = "P", both of [PowerCableID] and
[SHCableID] become "PM-1200A-P" and are not unique anymore.
viii) Site Area Table ([DPPSiteArea])
If the Site Area table (DPPSiteArea) exists and has one or more records in it, the following
fields will be transferred from DPPSiteArea to DPPElecLoad instead of
DPPMotorDefault with the key field [SiteArea];
[HazardAreaClass]
[ExpProtection]
[ExpClass]
[ExpTemp]
[EnclosureType]
[DegreeProtection]
[InsulationClass]
[InsulationTemp]
[Corrosion]
[Noise]
[RacewayType]
However, the following exceptions exist;

If DPPElecLoad [SiteArea] is blank, DPPMotorDefault is referred instead.


If DPPElecLoad [SiteArea] is not found in DPPSiteArea [SiteArea],
DPPMotorDefault is referred instead.

When a certain field (not [SiteArea]) value of DPPSiteArea is blank or zero after
[SiteArea] is matched between DPPElecLoad and DPPSiteArea, blank or zero may be
filled out into DPPElecLoad. It will not perform to refer DPPMotorDefault instead. (That
is regarded as an intentional zero or blank.)

By Project Information (DPPProjectRec)


Motor rated voltage [KV] is filled up according to the following procedure:

ELTECHS Engineering & Consulting Co., Ltd.

10-8

e-DPP 4.0.2

Data Filling

Motor (Induction Motors)

<DPPProjectRec [HP_KW] = 1 (KW)>


When motor output [KW] is between DPPProjectRec [MinKWfor***] and DPPProjectRec
[MaxKWfor***], a value of DPPProjectRec [Voltage***] is filled into [KV] (*** is HV1, HV2,
MV1, MV2, LV3Ph1 or LV3Ph2).
For example;
Motor [KW]
= 350
[MinKWforMV2] = 151
[MaxKWforMV2] = 1500
[VoltageMV2]
= 3.3
[KV] of DPPElecLoad becomes 3.3
<DPPProjectRec [HP_KW] = 0 (HP)>
If DPPElecLoad [HP_KW] <> 0 and <> 1, skip the record for [KV] data filling.
If DPPElecLoad [HP_KW] = 1 (kW), the following unit adjustment is done prior to the comparison
with DPPProjectRec [MinKWfor***] and DPPProjectRec [MaxKWfor***];
DPPElecLoad [HP] = DPPElecLoad [HP] / 0.7457
If DPPElecLoad [HP_KW] = 0, a similar procedure to the above is applied.
For example;
Motor [HP]
= 500
[MinKWforMV2] = 200
[MaxKWforMV2] = 2000
[VoltageMV2]
= 4.16
[KV] of DPPElecLoad becomes 4.16
"Data Filling" is performed for induction motors only on this dialog, of which the field [EquipType] =
0 ("IM"), and not done for [VoltageLV1Ph] since [KW] range for [VoltageLV1Ph] is usually over
wrapped by that for [VoltageLV3Ph1] or [VoltageLV3Ph2].

Cable

11.4 Cable
Electrical Load Schedule (DPPElecLoad) contains cable data directly associated with the loads.
These cable data may be transferred to Cable Schedule (DPPCable) through Data Filling Cable
process.

As long as Cable IDs exists in Electrical Load Schedule (DPPElecLoad), these cables are candidates
for transfer to Cable Schedule (DPPCable). And once transferred to Cable Schedule, these cables
still maintain association with their counterpart in Electrical Load Schedule.
Refer to Table 1 and Table 2 for the correlation of relevant fields in Project Standard (DPPProjRec)
and in Electrical Load Schedule (DPPElecLoad) respectively with some of the fields in Cable
Schedule (DPPCable).
The rest of the fields in Cable Schedule (DPPCable) not listed in Table 1 and Table 2 are independent,
hence their value are not affected by cable data filling process.
In addition, those cables which were created within Cable Schedule (not through Electrical Load
Schedule) exercise independency. Meaning, these cables are not affected by Cable Data filling
process too.
Notes:
1. Cables for bearing RTDs and winding RTDs are not treated in the Electrical Load Schedule and
therefore cannot be transferred to the Cable Schedule.
2. If you specify "Triplex Cable" (UnitsOfWire="T") for power cables, NumberOfWires has to be

Data Filling

Cable

set "3" for one cable in the Electrical Load Schedule. If NumberOfWires is set "1" and
UnitsOfWire is "T", e-DPP expands it to "3" cables in the Cable Schedule in a similar way to
other types of cables against your intent. You need to be careful that all triplex cables in the
e-DPP Cable Library are set as NumberOfWires is "1" for conventional engineering application.
Therefore, when you retrieve triplex cable data from the library, NumberOfWires needs to be
altered to "3" for that purpose.

Target Cables
Select the following type (according to uses) of cables as the target for transfer to Cable Schedule

Cable ID - Naming Convention


Transfer IDs from Electrical Load Schedule
This option will transfer the Cable ID (as is structure) from Electrical Load Schedule to Cable
Schedule except for power cables with parallel and single core configuration which are further treated
as follows;
Electrical Load Schedule treats equipment and its power cable in 1 is to 1 approach, meaning
two or more cables are considered only as one entity when supplying the same equipment.
However, in Cable Schedule system, these cables are generally treated as individual entities and
are entitled for individual ID.

Load Summary

Outline

12.1 Outline
Load Summary program provides with 2 different types of calculation. One is a conventional load
summary calculation based on bus, switchboard or lumped load, and another is to group (so called
lump) individual motors into one model motor (so called Lumped Motor).

12.1.1 Conventional Load Summary


It is required to understand the elementary rules and steps to succeed the conventional load summary
calculations.

"Bus", "Switchboard" and "Lumped Load"


The Load Summary program of e-DPP can be executed on three kinds of bases as a node to which
the individual electrical loads are connected. The first base is "Bus", the second is "Switchboard"
and the other is "Lumped Load". In the terminology of e-DPP, "Switchboard" denotes all types of
switching panel, such as switchgear, MCC, distribution panel, etc.
"Bus" is a major component of each "Switchboard". Generally, one switchboard contains one or
more than one bus sections. Each bus section is connected each other with a section tie breaker
when a switchboard contains more than one buses.
e-DPP is capable of treating such a relation between Bus and Switchboard. One switchboard can
contain four buses as a maximum.
You can execute the Load Summary calculation on Bus, Switchboard or Lumped Load base.

Roll-Up
e-DPP has another particular feature called "Roll-Up" calculation.
You can summate electrical demands within a certain Bus or Switchboard independent of the other
Buses or Switchboard in the same power system. The results of such calculations can be referred by
motor start study as a base load before starting motors.
On the other hand, "Roll-Up" calculation is intended to summate all electrical demand in the power
system by rolling up the demands from the bottom of the system toward upstream. The results of
this style of calculations are referred by transformer sizing consideration.
"Roll-Up" calculation is not applicable to Lumped Load base.

Steps to Execute Load Summary


When you execute the Load Summary calculation, it is recommendable to take the following steps:

Step-1
Register all bus IDs into the Bus List (Index) table (DPPBus) and set up the connection topology in
the Edit menu - "Bus List".

Step-2
Register all switchboard IDs into the Switchboard List (Index) table (DPPPanel) and set up the
connection topology in the Edit menu - "Switchboard List". It is recommended to set up all
contained buses for each switchboard here.

Step-3
Assign the individual loads of the Electrical Load Schedule to the registered buses in the Load

ELTECHS Engineering & Consulting Co., Ltd.

12-2

e-DPP 4.0.2

Load Summary

Outline

Summary menu - "Bus Loads". For detail procedures, see Section 12.2, Bus Loads.

Step-4
If you have assigned the contained buses for each switchboard, the electrical loads are automatically
assigned to the registered switchboards.
If not, assign the individual loads to the registered switchboards in the Load Summary menu "Switchboard Loads". For detail procedures, see Section 12.3, Switchboard Loads.

Step-5
Execute the Load Summary in the Load Summary menu - "Run Load Summary". For detail
procedures, see Section 12.5, Run Load Summary.
To execute the load summary calculation based on Lumped Load, you need to register all lumped
load IDs into the Lumped Load table (DPPLump) in the Edit menu - "Lumped Load". And then,
assign the individual loads of the Electrical Load Schedule to the registered lumped loads in the
Load Summary menu - "Lumped Loads". For detail procedures, see Section 12.4, Lumped Loads.
These activities for lumped loads can be taken independently of the above steps for the bus or
switchboard based calculations.

12.1.2 Lumped Motor


Lumped Motor is an independent function from the conventional load summary. Its details are
described in Section 12.6, Lumped Motor.

Configurations can be edited in the menu "Edit" "Bus" "Bus List". There are three columns,
i.e. "Source Bus1", "Source Bus2" and "Source Bus3" as default. Filling these columns sets up system
configurations. If more than 3 system configurations are required, a new user defined template needs
to be created. To do that, go to the menu "Template" "Schedule Sheet", select the category "Bus"

Rated kV
Bus rated voltage can be selected from the list box that shows the system voltages defined through the
menu "Project" - "Electrical".

Source Bus
To execute the roll-up summary calculation, a source bus needs to be assigned to each bus. As the bus
located at the top (summit) of your power system does not have the source bus, the special term "< top
>" has to be assigned. If the top node of your power system applies a double-ended secondary
selective system, a dummy bus needs to be set up like "TOTAL" as a bus name.

"Check Connection" button


This function is required to succeed the roll-up summary calculation that treats a simple radial
configuration of power system. If your power system has more than one separated systems or a looped
configuration, e-DPP detects such conditions and present a warning message. Until such improper
connections are not solved, the Load Summary calculation cannot be executed.

Coincidence Factors
Three coincidence factors for continuous, intermittent and spare loads can be specified for individual
buses. The value range is 0-100 (%).

Margin
When it is required to take contingencies against calculated power demands into account, enter the
numbers for the maximum plant load and peak load in percentage.
e-DPP can indicate the values of power demands with and without the margins.

Method of Total Load Calculation


As described in the section 12.5.5 "Calculation Formulas", the total plant load in kW is calculated by
the formula:
TotalKW =
(ContCF*TotalContKW+InterCF*TotalInterKW+SpareCF*TotalSpareKW)/100
where

TotalContkW =
TotalInterkW =
ToatlSparekW =
ContCF =
InterCF =
SpareCF =

Sum of all continuously operating loads


Sum of all intermittent loads
Sum of all spare loads
Coincidence factor for continuous loads
Coincidence factor for intermittent loads
Coincidence factor for spare loads

It is often the case that there is a particular requirement for project, for example, InterCF *
TotalInterkW may not be less than the largest individual intermittent load. Such a requirement would
be applied to continuous and spare loads as well.

To fulfill the above requirement, three options are prepared in this section.
Note: : Selection of items (Continuous, Intermittent & Spare) on "Operation Mode subject to Method
<2> or <3>" options ("User Options "Load Summary (2) Other Options") to be included in
the calculation affect the Methods <1>, <2> and <3>. For more details, see Chapter 05 File Menu
(User Options).

Method <1>: [Total Load Demand] x [Coincidence Factor]


For each load status (i.e. continuous, intermittent, spare), the total demand is equal to the product of
the sum of all loads and the specified bus / switchboard coincidence factor.

Method <2>: Largest Individual Load


For each load status (i.e. continuous, intermittent, spare), the total demand is equal to the product of
the sum of all loads and the recalculated bus / switchboard coincidence factor (see <Example>, Case 1
to 3 below).

Method <3>: Larger one out of the above two


For each load status (i.e. continuous, intermittent, spare), the total demand is equal to the product of
the sum of all loads and the largest recalculated bus / switchboard coincidence factor among the two
options above.

12.5.5 Calculation Formulas


The detailed procedures and formulas for load summary calculation are described below.

12.5.5.1 Load Efficiency and Power Factor


Values of load efficiencies and power factors at loading factor (%) are calculated from those at 100%,
75% and 50% stored in the motor library by means of linear interpolation/extrapolation calculations.

(1) AC and DC Motors (EquipType = 0, 1, 2, 3)


1) [PFatLF] (Power factor at load factor)
SubCase-1 (75<=[PercentLoad0]<=100) - Interpolation
[PFatLF] = ([PF100]-[PF75])*([PercentLoad0]/100-0.75)/0.25+[PF75]
SubCase-2 (50<=[PercentLoad0]<75) - Interpolation
[PFatLF] = ([PF75]-[PF50])*([PercentLoad0]/100-0.50)/0.25+[PF50]
SubCase-3 (0<[PercentLoad0]<50)
[PFatLF] = 100*(1-a)/sqrt(b-2*a+c)
Where
a = (1-2*[PercentLoad0]/100)*[EFF50]/100
b = 1/([PF50]/100)**2
c = a**2
2) [EFFatLF] (Efficiency at load factor)
SubCase-1 (75<=[PercentLoad0]<=100) - Interpolation
[EFFatLF]=([EFF100]-[EFF75])*([PercentLoad0]/100-0.75)/0.25+[EFF75]
SubCase-2 (50<=[PercentLoad0]<75) - Interpolation
[EFFatLF] = ([EFF75]-[EFF50])*([PercentLoad0]/100-0.50)/0.25+[EFF50]
SubCase-3 (0<[PercentLoad0]<50)
[EFFatLF] = 100/(1+(1-[EFF50]/100)/(2*[PercentLoad0]/100*[EFF50]/100))

(2) Static and Other Loads (EquipType = 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15)
1) [PFatLF] (Power factor at load factor)
SubCase-1 ([PF100]<>0)
[PFatLF] = PF100
SubCase-2 ([PF100]=0)
[PFatLF] = 100.0
2) [EFFatLF] (Efficiency at load factor)
SubCase-1 ([EFF100]<>0)
[EFFatLF] = EFF100

2) [EFFatLF] (Efficiency at load factor) = 0

12.5.5.2 Electrical Consumptions


When the load summary calculation starts, electrical consumption for each load with respect to the
operation modes, "Continuous", "Intermittent" and "Spare", are calculated by means of the following
formulas at first;

(1) Motor, Static and Other Loads (EquipType = 0 - 4, 6 - 15)


(a) [ContKW] (Continuous kW)
[ContKW] = 100 * [BHP] / [EFFatLF] only when [ContQty] <> 0
(b) [ContKVAR] (Continuous kvar)
[ContKVAR] = sqrt([ContKVA]**2- [ContKW]**2) only when [ContQty] <> 0
Note: [ContKVA] needs to be calculated before [ContKVAR].
(c) [ContKVA] (Continuous kVA)
[ContKVA] = 100 * [ContKW] / [PFatLF] only when [ContQty] <> 0
(d) [InterKW] (Intermittent kW)
[InterKW] = 100 * [BHP] / [EFFatLF] only when [InterQty] <> 0
(e) [InterKVAR] (Intermittent kvar)
[InterKVAR] = sqrt([InterKVA]**2- [InterKW]**2) only when [InterQty] <> 0
Note: [InterKVA] needs to be calculated before [InterKVAR].
(f) [InterKVA] (Intermittent kVA)
[InterKVA] = 100 * [InterKW] / [PFatLF] only when [InterQty] <> 0
(g) [SpareKW] (Spare kW)
[SpareKW] = 100 * [BHP] / [EFFatLF] only when [SpareQty] <> 0
(h) [SpareKVAR] (Spare kvar)
[SpareKVAR] = sqrt([SpareKVA]**2- [SpareKW]**2) only when [SpareQty] <> 0
Note: [SpareKVA] needs to be calculated before [SpareKVAR].
(i) [SpareKVA] (Spare kVA)
[SpareKVA] = 100 * [SpareKW] / [PFatLF] only when [SpareQty] <> 0

12.5.5.3 Summary Calculations


The total demands (kW, kvar, kVA) are calculated for continuous, intermittent and spare loads
respectively and shown on the bottom section of the form.

<Important Note>
[TotalContKVA], [TotalInterKVA] and [TotalSpareKVA] are not the total values of [ContKVA],
[InterKVA] and [SpareKVA] for each load respectively and calculated with the following formulas;
[TotalContKVA] = sqrt([TotalContKW]**2 + [TotalContKVAR]**2)
[TotalInterKVA] = sqrt([TotalInterKW]**2 + [TotalInterKVAR]**2)
[TotalSpareKVA] = sqrt([TotalSpareKW]**2 + [TotalSpareKVAR]**2)
The power factors for the total demands of continuous, intermittent and spare loads are calculated as;
[TotalContPF] = 100 * [TotalContKW] / [TotalContKVA]
[TotalInterPF] = 100 * [TotalInterKW] / [TotalInterKVA]
[TotalSparePF] = 100 * [TotalSpareKW] / [TotalSpareKVA]
You may specify the coincidence factors for continuous, intermittent and spare loads on the output
form.
The total demand (kW, kvar, kVA) and PF are calculated with user specified C.F.s by the following
formulas;
TotalKW=
(ContCF*TotalContKW+InterCF*TotalInterKW+SpareCF*TotalSpareKW)/100
TotalKVAR=
(ContCF*TotalContKVAR+InterCF*TotalInterKVAR+SpareCF*TotalSpareKVAR)/100
TotalKVA=sqrt (TotalKW**2+TotalKVAR**2)
PF=TotalKW / TotalKVA * 100

12.5.5.4 Motor Load Percentage


Ratio of motor loads against motor and static loads is derived by the following calculation;
MTLoadKW = [ContCF] / 100 * [ContKW]
+ [InterCF] / 100 * [InterKW]
+ [SpareCF] / 100 *[SpareKW]

Lumped Motors

12.6 Lumped Motors


A lumped motor is an imaginary element created from more than one AC electric motors and used for
dynamic simulation of electrical system, i.e. dynamic motor start calculation, transient stability
calculation, etc. When there are hundreds or more than a thousand motors in the system to be analyzed,
convergence of the dynamic calculations could be rather difficult or sometimes not possible.
Replacing a group of motors with single lumped motor will reduce the dimension of electrical system
matrix and have it easier to succeed in the calculation with an acceptable level of accuracy maintained.
While a lumped load is summation of several motors & static loads and does not retain any dynamic
features from individual loads, the lumped motor retains several key parameters required for dynamic
simulations. The key parameters are retrieved from the motor library or project database after a model
motor has been determined with the method of best approximation as described in the below section
Method of Lumping Motors. The model motor is also an imaginary element and equivalent to one
of the library or project motors.

The frequency and code/standard are the same as those defined for the current project.
The rated voltage of model motor can be entered by user on the dialog of Lumped Motor Editor as
detailed in the below section 12.6.2. The default value is retrieved from the menu Settings ->
Electrical -> Motor Rated (kV) and set on the dialog.
The number of poles is determined in the steps described above.
The rated kW of model motor is determined in the following steps:
Step-1: Summate kW of the motors with the same kW and the determined number of poles.
Step-2: Select the maximum rated kW.

Cable Management

e-DPP is provided with functions to determine sizes of power cables and associate conduits/glands.
The power cable sizing is performed for electrical loads, e.g. electrical motors static loads, distribution
panels and lighting panels stored in the electrical load schedule.
In order to perform the sizing, you need to input all the required data in the edit form dedicated to this
purpose. The details are described in the Section 13.1.
Also, the library data of motors and cables are referred by the sizing program.
The conduit and cable gland sizing is performed for all or part of cables (power, control, etc.) stored in
the cable schedule.
In order to perform the sizing, "Conduit and Cable Gland Selection Table" needs to be created
beforehand with the menu "Cable Management - Conduit and Gland Size".
e-DPP Cable Management menu covers the following features:

Check this box to apply predetermined minimum cable sizes for individual motor loads. When this
option is applied and then calculated cable sizes are less than the corresponding minimum cable sizes,
the latter is taken as calculation results.
When motor kW or HP is greater than the maximum kW or HP registered in Minimum Cable Size
table, the minimum cable size for the maximum kW or HP in the table is taken.

"Show Min. Cable Size" Button


To define or edit the minimum cable sizes for motor loads, click "Show Min. Cable Size" button.
"Minimum Cable Sizes" dialog box appears.
(Note: The minimum cable sizes can be also accessed from the menu "Cable Management"
"Minimum Cable Size".)

When cable sizing is run, the saved values from this dialog box will be reflected on the power cable
sizing results.
(Note: For DC motor cables, option for "Minimum Cable Sizes" is ignored.)

Adjust by Ambient Temp. (deg.C) (Ta)


When this option is selected, the temperature adjustment factors Fta is calculated (approximately) for
each installation method ("U/G" or "A/G") by the difference between the base and actual ambient
temperatures of cable installation with the following formula;

Calculation results are shown in the column "Temp Factor" in "Cable Application" section below.

Apply Grouping Factor (GF)


Grouping factors can be specified in 2 different ways.
Global:
Individual:

Specify GF for each voltage class and installation method (U/G or A/G)
Specify GF for each load

The global GFs are specified on this dialog while the individual GFs are specified on the editor of
Load Schedule template All Electrical Loads Input Data for Cable Sizing.

Global GF only
Cable sizing is carried out taking into account the global GFs only and does not refer to any
individual GFs.

Individual GF only
Cable sizing is carried out taking into account the individual GFs only and does not refer to any
global GFs. If there is no input in Load Schedule, no cable sizing is carried out.

Global & Individual GF


Cable sizing is carried out taking into account either the global or individual GFs. If both are
available for a certain load, the individual GF always takes precedence over the global one.

Note: The individual GFs are highlighted in different colors on the sizing result spreadsheet and MS
Excel output.

13.1.4 Calculation Formulas


The criteria of power cable sizing implemented in e-DPP are expressed by the following three
categories;
(1) Derated cable ampacity vs. load current
(2) Voltage drop (%) at normal load operation
(3) Voltage drop (%) at motor start (For motor loads only)
The detailed procedures and formulas for power cable sizing are described below.

13.1.4.1 Cable Ampacities


"Temperature Factor"
When "Adjust by Ambient Temp. (Ta)" is selected on the entrance menu, the temperature factor Fta is
calculated with the approximation formula for each installation method ("U/G" or "A/G") by the
difference between the base and actual ambient temperatures of cable installation;

Fta =

Tc T
Tc Ta

Where
Tc: Maximum conductor temperature
Ta: Base ambient temperature
T : Actual ambient temperature
The result of calculated Fta is referred by the cable sizing calculation and reflected to the overall
"Derating Factor".
If this option is not selected, the default value 1.00 is substituted in Fta.
"Grouping Factor"
You can input grouping factor Fg for each cable installation type on the entrance menu. The product of
Fg and Fta becomes an overall derating factor.

"Comparison with Load Current"


The derated cable ampacity is compared with a load current multiplied by "Application MF" that can
be inputted on the entrance menu.
[Cable Ampacity] * Fta * Fg > [Application MF] * [Load Current]
If the above condition becomes true, then the program goes to the next step to calculate a voltage drop.
If false, the next larger size of cable in the cable library will be examined.

<Note for Low Voltage 1-phase 3-wire System>


When kV of single phase load is less than 75% of system kV, the load is treated as connected between
line and neutral wires, e.g. Load 1 between L1 and N wires or Load 2 between L2 and N wires as
shown in the below circuit diagram:

ELTECHS Engineering & Consulting Co., Ltd.

e-DPP 4.0.2

Cable Management

Power Cable Sizing (Batch)

e-DPP sizes power cables for 1-Phase system based on assumption that all loads connected between
line and neutral wires are balanced. In the above circuit diagram, the capacity of Load 1 should be
equal to Load 2. In other words, e-DPP calculates a cable size for Load 1 or Load 2 based on
assumption that current flown through the neutral wire N is zero. That means that Load 1 and
Load 2 need to be integrated to single load like Load 3 for determining a required cable size.
Calculation results such as voltage drops and maximum cable lengths shown by e-DPP for single
phase loads connected between line and neutral should be regarded as reference purpose only and not
be used for determining cable sizes for procurement or construction.

13.2 Power Cable Sizing (Individual Loads)


In addition to the batch cable sizing described in the above section 13.1, e-DPP provides with another
capability to size power cables for individual loads one by one. When user wants to size the cables for
a single load with different criteria from others, e.g. particular derating factor, this feature gives
flexibility in size determination in conjunction with the batch sizing.
This function can be launched from the editor of any template for load schedule by selecting a target
load and then right clicking on the editor screen.

When you select Cable Sizing from the popup menu, the new dialog appears as below.

Drum Scheduling

13.4 Drum Scheduling


Drum scheduling is a process of collecting identical cables (in terms of specifications and sizes) and
allocating them into a spool called Drum. A drum is a roll of cable of certain length.
Procurement of cables is generally transacted in unit of drum. And during the lay out (pulling) of
cables at the construction site the cables are drawn out and cut from the drums. For these reasons, a
proper management of drum is necessary to facilitate procurement processes and to maximize the
usage of the cable in the drums.

The two main purpose of drum scheduling are;


(1) Generate "Drum List"
Drum list is a summary of cable drums which enlist pertinent information about the description of
the drums. Generally, this list is used for procurement
(2) Generate "Drum Schedule"
Drum schedule is a listing of arrays of cables allocated to a drum. The arrays of cables represent
the segments of the cable wound in the drums. In other words, a drum schedule is a table of how
the content of a drum will be cut into pieces/sections. Generally, this schedule is used for
construction.

Flow of Drum Scheduling


A cable schedule is necessary before drum list and drum schedules can be generated. From the cable
schedule, e-DPP collects all distinct cable sizes of distinct specification and summarizes them in table
hereto referred as "Drum Specification". A "Drum Specification" table also contains the criteria for
the management of the length of cable that will be available in the drums for each distinct cable size of
distinct specification.

Drum Scheduling

Table Properties
Option
Select one of the two (2) options "Max. Len" or "Round Up".

Max. Len
If "Max. Len" is selected the maximum length of cable that will be available in a drum will be equal to
the value specified in "Max. Length" column. In other words, this option dictates the limitation of
the summation of length of the segment of the cables that could be scheduled in a drum according to
the fixed value in "Max. Length" column. Also, the actual available spare length of cable in a drum
may be equal to or greater than the value specified in "Spare Length" column.

Round Up
If "Round Up" is selected the maximum length of cable that will be available in a drum varies to the
rounded-up value of the summation of the length of all segments of cables being scheduled in the
drum but not more than the value specified in "Max. Length" column. The rounding number is the
value specified in "Round Up Length" column. Also, the actual available spare length of cable in a
drum may be equal to or less than the value specified in "Round Up Length" column.
This option may be selected if excessive spare is not required for certain sizes of cables of certain
specifications for some reason like for instance the cost per linear length of cable is high and/or the
cable manufacturer accepts fractional order.
Notes for both "Max. Len" and "Round Up" option
a) The cumulative length of segments of cables that could be allocated to the drums is restricted by
the "Scheduling Length". "Scheduling Length" is the difference between the values in "Max.
Length" and "Spare Length" column ("Max. Length" - "Spare Length").
b) In case a single (one segment) cable having a length more than the value specified in "Max.
Length" column, this single cable will be allocated to a single drum of length equal to "Max.
Length". Though consideration can be taken later e.g. increase the drum length later or
consider splicing the cable.

Max. Length (m)


This parameter is used to determine the prospective and limitation of length of cable that will be
available in a particular drum. By default, this parameter is populated with value from cable library
if the corresponding data is available. Otherwise, a default value of 1000(m) is set.

Round-Up Length (m)


This setting is valid only when "Round-Up" option is selected. The default value is 20 (m). Round-Up
Length (m) should be less than 50% of Max. Length (m) and equal or less than Spare Length (m).

Spare Length (m)


Specify the prospective length of cable you want to spare in a drum. The default value is 5% of
"Max. Length (m)". The actual drum spare length may be at least or at most equal to this value
depending on the selected option "Max Len" or "Round Up" as discussed in "1) Option" above.
The Spare Length (m) should be less than 50% of Max. Length (m).

Scheduling Objects
Select from the pull down lists which cables of certain size of certain specification are the target of
scheduling. The list of cable specification available for scheduling is shown in the "List of Cable
Specification" list box. If the target are all the cables, leave all the pull down list to "All". The
pull-down lists behave in hierarchical order i.e. from top to button.

Data Source
Select the Data Source of the target cables. Data Source is a name of cable manufacturer
(MFRName) in e-DPP cable library and intended to use for discriminating the cable data when
different cable manufacturers are selected with identical specification of cables.
When the cable data are not extracted from e-DPP cable library, Data Source list shows a blank. This
occurs if the name of manufacturer is not specified when the cable data have been populated by User
Data Import or Data Filling action. However, even in such case, the drum scheduling program treats
those cables as "Manufacturer name = <blank>" in the same manner as for the other cables.

Geographical Criteria
The Geographical Criteria accounts the relationship of the pulling locations and the equipment to be
served. These criteria allow you to optimize your scheduling preparation by automatically putting
cables to the right drums. There are two (2) methods to realize an optimal drum scheduling;
i. Filter the prospect cables for drum scheduling by "Geographical Criteria".
ii. Use the "Orphan Control"
When "Geographical Criteria" is applied, it is required to manually execute one by one each group of
target cables (group of cables of the same location). On the other hand, "Geographical Criteria" has
an advantage. For example, in case engineering work in some areas is delayed due to some reasons
but in some areas it is already complete and for those completed areas placement of order of the cables
is now required, then "Geographical Criteria" may be the best option.

Site Area
Select the site area where the target cables belong.

Substation
Select the substation where the target cables belong.

Process Unit
Select the process unit where the target cables belong.

Switchboard
Select the switchboard where the target cables are served.

Bus
Select the bus where target cables are terminated.

Options
Scheduling Scope
The following options are effective at the second and subsequent runs. Either the cables that have

Serial number is a part of drum number that makes a drum number unique in case there is more than
one drum of identical specifications (having cable with the same specification). This number
corresponds to the count of drums. Therefore, it is a must to have this number. Number of digits
from 1 to 5 is available as option for user to choose. The numbers of digits dictate the number of
digits of the serial number and it signifies the number of leading zeros less the digits of the count of a
particular drum. For example, if you selected number of digits of 4 and the count of a particular
drum is 32, then the serial number will be "0032". In case user has chosen number of digits less than
the number of digits of the count of a particular drum, the exact number of the count will be utilized.
But the presentation of those counts which exceed and those which are within the chosen number of
digits will be different. For example, if the chosen Number of Digits is 3, all counts less than 1000

Conduit and Gland Sizing

13.5 Conduit and Gland Sizing


The conduit and cable gland sizing can be performed for all or part of cables (power, control, etc.)
stored in the cable schedule provided these cables have a counterpart in one of the Cable Libraries.
In order to perform the sizing, "Conduit and Cable Gland Selection Table" needs to be created
beforehand in the menu "Defaults - Conduit and Gland Size". Also, under the "Conduit and Cable
Gland Selection Table" window environment it is important for each newly selected cable library (or
already selected but no prior commencement of clicking the "Edit" button yet) the "Edit" button is
clicked in order e-DPP program could generate the corresponding conduit and gland selection table
which will be referred by the Conduit and Gland sizing. Otherwise, the Conduit and Gland Sizing
program will not yield the expected results. Refer to Chapter 13, clause 13.8.2 (Command Buttons)
for more information.
The data that are actually filled out by this program are;
Conduit Type
Conduit Size
Cable Gland Type
Cable Gland Size
Cable Entry (Thread) Type
Cable Entry (Thread) Size
When the following key parameters match "Conduit and Gland Selection" table and the cable schedule,
the above listed 6 parameters are transferred from the former to the latter.
Cable Manufacturer Name
Cable Voltage
Cable Type
No. of Cores
<Note>
The conduit sizing can be performed for single cable only that is installed in a conduit. Multiple cables
installed in a conduit cannot be treated. Therefore, "Percentage of Cross-Section" for single conductor
only in "Conduit and Gland Selection" table dialog is valid for the conduit sizing.

Design function. The basic concept to design a user template is to relate a user MS Excel sheet with
the e-DPP database table. Columns of MS Excel sheet are linked with the fields of the e-DPP database
table. The Template Design program facilitates those relating processes.

16.1 MS Access to ETAP


You can export e-DPP project databases to ETAP through the intermediate database "INT". A data
exchange module called "DataX eDPP" in ETAP version 5.5 and higher should be active in order to
import the "INT" database to the said application.
The complete data exchange process from e-DPP to ETAP involves two separate processes:
(1) First Process: Export of e-DPP data to intermediate database "INT"
This process is done inside e-DPP application environment and the functionalities are
described in this chapter.
(2) Second Process: Import of intermediate database "INT" to ETAP.
This process is done inside ETAP application environment and the functionalities are
described in ETAP User Guide Chapter 40 "Data Exchange".

16.1.2 Exporting To ETAP


To execute the Export to ETAP, select "Tools" tab "MS Access to ETAP". This opens the
"Export To ETAP" dialog box, as shown below.

Electrical Loads
Check the type of loads to be exported.

Check All and Uncheck All


The function of these buttons is self explanatory, i.e. to check or uncheck in one step all type of loads.

Lumped Loads - Include Members


Check "Lumped Loads - Include Members" if the individual loads associated to particular lumped
loads are to be exported also.
About "Lumped Load"
A Lumped Load is a representation of group of individual loads wherein its rating is generally
equal to the vector sum of the associated individual loads as calculated in Load Summary (See
Chapter 12).
If the "Lumped Loads" and the "Include Members" checkboxes are both checked (selected), the
individual loads associated to Lumped Loads and also the Lumped Loads themselves will be exported
to ETAP. This condition will create loading redundancy and hence will unnecessarily increase your
system loading by as much as the cumulative rating of the Lumped Loads. Therefore, it is
recommendable to uncheck the "Include Members" if the option " Lumped Loads" is selected or vice
versa.

Lumped Motors - Include Members


Same as "Lumped Loads" as described above.

Check All and Uncheck All


The function of these buttons is self explanatory, i.e. to check or uncheck in one step all type of
branches.

Include Non-Power Cables


Check "Include Non-Power Cables" if non-power cables are to be exported to ETAP. Generally, the
cable schedule contains several kinds of cables according to uses other than power cable e.g. control,
data transmission, grounding, etc. and these kinds of cable may also be exported to ETAP.
Note 1: ETAP uses power cables only. If you export non-power cables, these cables will be placed in
ETAP One-line diagram connected to their designated bus. Currently, these cables have no use
in ETAP but in the future they may be utilized in the CSD (Control Sequence Diagram).
Note 2: When the checkbox "Lumped Loads - Include Members" is checked, all the cables associated
to Lumped Loads are exported to ETAP. If not, none of the associated cables are exported.
Note 3: When the checkbox "Lumped Motors - Include Members" is checked, all the cables associated
to Lumped Motors are exported to ETAP. If not, none of the associated cables are exported.
Note 4: If there is a conflict between Lumped Loads and Lumped Motors in this regard, for instance, a
certain motor is included in a Lumped Load but not in a Lumped Motor, "Include" supersedes.

Protective Devices
Check the type of protective to be exported.

ID Prefix
Enter ID prefix in alphanumeric characters (5 max.) for each type of protective devices. This ID
prefix will be combined to the equipment ID of the load being protected by the protective device and
the combination will serve as the ID of the said protective device when exported to ETAP. This
process is necessary since in ETAP all elements are compulsory to have unique ID.

Check All and Uncheck All


The function of these buttons is self explanatory, i.e. to check or uncheck in one step all type of
protective devices.

Buses
Check "Buses" checkbox to export the buses also.

Power Source
Power Source is not treated in e-DPP's current version. However, ETAP requires at least one power
source in the system in order to execute power system calculation. For this reason, an option to
create a power source is provided here.

17.1 Project Editor


The Project Editor is a graphical tree representation that includes templates, datasheets, libraries, and
components associated with your project.
The project tree can be expanded to display items under each component. Clicking a "+" icon (inside a
square) increases the tree expansion, showing more details. Clicking a "" icon (inside a square)
decreases the tree expansion, showing fewer details. Selecting an item by right-clicking it will display
a context-sensitive command menu that allows you to perform actions on the selected item.

Template
Project Editor can be used to open a template. However, the component selected from the Project
Editor will be used as a filter type for the items that will be shown on the template. In the image below
for example, induction motor component was selected on the Project Editor and all induction motor
items were displayed on that template.
Note:
The same template can not be opened simultaneously. For example, when " Electrical Load Schedule
(Form-1)" is opened containing "filtered induction motors", it should be closed first before opening the
same template with "filtered static loads" on it.

Electrical Load Schedule (Form-1) template containing filtered Induction Motors

Datasheet
In datasheet, an electrical equipment or materials are presented in one sheet. To open datasheet,
Right-click a component item (i.e. induction motor item tag "AM-2001") on the Project Editor and
select [Datasheet]. With the Data Sheet Viewer, you can edit all parameters. However, those
changes will not be saved on the database. (Note: The same headers as of MS Excel may be shown as
