SECTION A Electrical Design Guide


A1 OVERVIEW The Facilities and Services Division is required to maintain an overview of the Acton Campus and other University campuses. It is essential that anyone adding to or modifying any part of the electrical installation liaise closely with the Engineering Services Section of the Facilities and Services Division for special conditions and requirements. Note for the purposes of definition, an electrical consultant or electrical designer engaged to perform works for the University is acting on behalf of the Facilities and Services Division and is regarded as the Project Electrical Superintendent (abbreviated to Superintendent) in this document. It is a requirement that pre-tender electrical documentation produced by engineering consultants or design contractors is submitted for review by the Engineering Services of the Facilities and Services Division prior to calling tenders. Engineering consultants or design contractors who are engaged by the University to produce project documentation may extract relevant information from the General Electrical Specification for incorporation in the project specific electrical specification. Alternatively a suitable reference may be made in the project specification to advise contractors of the need to comply with the Universitys General Electrical Specification requirements. The General Electrical Specification (Part B of this document) gives details of electrical installation requirements and procedures. A2 PROJECT DELIVERY MANUAL The Facilities and Services Division has produced a comprehensive guide to project design and delivery entitled, The Project Delivery Manual. Consultants should refer to this document for guidance in particular Sections B4 and C1. The manual can be accessed electronically at the following address: http://www.anu.edu.au/facilities/procedures/pdm/index.html A3 THE SITE The ANU Acton Campus is situated in Canberra, ACT. Electrical supply is taken at 11kV and is metered at the main incoming substation. The University is presently on bulk tariff to the Supply Authority, ActewAGL. 11kV feeders run from the main substation to a series of 11000/415/240V 50 Hz substations on the site. The HV installation including cables, transformers and HV switchgear is owned and maintained by ActewAGL. Note that ANU staff and contractors cannot access HV equipment and substations without approval from ActewAGL. Most of the HV reticulation is by underground cable but there are remnants of overhead lines and where new development is planned for these areas consideration should be given to placing the services underground. All low voltage cables originating from the substations on the campus are owned and maintained by the University. The University has smaller campuses in the ACT at Mt Stromlo, Weston Creek, Fenner Hall, Paleomagnetic Lab Black Mountain, Dickson Farm and Spring Valley Farm. In NSW it has campuses at Siding Spring Coonabarabran, Kioloa and The Edge Braidwood. In the Northern Territory there is a campus at Naru. Details of these campuses are available from the Facilities and Services Division.

A4 DIRECT DIGITAL CONTROL (DDC) DATA MANAGEMENT A Satchwell BAS Building Management System is installed throughout the Acton campus, with wide ranging data collection and control capabilities. The facility should be utilised wherever possible. Details are available from the Facilities and Services Division. A5 EMERGENCY ELECTRICAL SUPPLY On new projects the decision whether to install stand-by facilities shall be agreed with the Facilities and Services Division. The Division has two separate 200 kVA mobile generator sets and if these are required to be connected to the installation then changeover circuitry shall be designed accordingly. Design consideration shall be given for cable access from the mobile set. Guidelines for connection are available from the Facilities and Services Division. Fixed emergency generation equipment is also located at the following areas: Animal Breeding Establishment Molly Huxley PABX Facility John Yencken / Shared Animal Facilities Research School of Chemistry Research School of Biological Sciences Auto start 130kVA Auto start 70kVA Manual start 138kVA Manual start 200kVA TBA

A6 EMERGENCY ALARM AND COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS Fire alarm systems in accordance with AS 1670 and Emergency Warning Systems (EWS) or where appropriate, Emergency Warning and Intercom systems (EWIS) in accordance with AS2220 are required in all ANU buildings. Refer to http://www.anu.edu.au/hr/ohs/policies/emergp.html for further information A7 ENERGY EFFICIENCY Careful consideration shall be given to the efficiency of plant and systems to be installed on Campus. For new buildings and major refurbishments, consideration should be given to the installation of power factor correction, high efficiency fluorescent lighting, off peak heating, load cycling, sensor light switching etc. Liaison with the Facilities and Services Division to justify energy saving measures is required and means to facilitate monitoring of energy usage should be incorporated into designs. A8 EXCAVATION PROCEDURES Numerous electrical and other services are buried in the University environs. Refer to the relevant clause in Part B regarding strict excavation procedures at University locations. A9 INTERIOR LIGHTING Interior lighting shall be generally designed in accordance with AS 1680 (lighting code). Illumination levels shall be in accordance with recommended requirements and areas should not be overlit. It is expected that consultants will perform computer-aided simulation where necessary to confirm that their design is appropriate. Special attention shall be given to the efficiency of the lighting installation and the designer shall justify the use of specialised lamps and fittings.

The Australian National University Electrical Design Guide and General Electrical Specification Issue No 2

Generally fluorescent lamps shall be used as detailed in the General Electrical Specification with incandescent lamps only used in specialised applications. If incandescent or ELV lighting is specified, permission and approval of the fittings shall be sought from the Facilities and Services Division. Provision shall be made for bulk switching in open areas to provide energy savings and to facilitate after hours cleaning. Provide alternate switching so that reduced lighting can be operated in emergency conditions. If dimming is required it shall be in specialised areas only, be easy to control and be flicker free. The ANU has a standardised layout for the lectern controls in lecture theatres and this must be reviewed and agreed with the Facilities and Services Division during the design stage. Glare where considered a problem shall be kept to a minimum in all environments in compliance with Section 8 of AS1680.1 Emergency lighting is a requirement throughout all areas of the University in accordance with the provisions of AS 2293. Note that the University has standardised on Bardic and Minitronic luminaires. Consultants shall submit brochures for all luminaire selections to the F&S Division for approval at the Final Sketch Plan stage. A10 LOADING Any proposed alterations to the electrical load on the site shall be discussed with the Facilities and Services Division. The Division has information on the site load and its distribution and has facilities for load measurement. Note that it is important to ensure that the local reticulation is well balanced and not overloaded. A11 MAINTENANCE Designers must consider the serviceability of installed equipment. Access to equipment is an important consideration and the availability of specialised equipment should be discussed with the Facilities and Services Division. A12 METERING The University is high voltage bulk metered at the main substation but the various University Departments are separately LV sub metered by University kWh meters. Designers shall liaise with the Facilities and Services Division to determine the metering requirements. The issue of separate electrical (and gas) sub metering needs to be discussed with and agreed to with the User Coordinator / Project Coordinator for multiple tenancies in a given facility. If such multiple metering is required a separate sub meter will also be necessary for common or house areas. Note that all sub metering is required to be connected to the BMS and it is the designers responsibility to ensure that there is sufficient documentation to cover all necessary wiring up to the BMS point. Metering details and BMS connections are covered elsewhere in this specification.
The Australian National University Electrical Design Guide and General Electrical Specification Issue No 2 -4-

A13 QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP AND MATERIALS A high quality of workmanship and materials is required at the ANU. Wherever possible materials complying with Australian Standards shall be specified. A14 SECURITY SYSTEMS A Cardax access control system is installed on the Campus, details of which are available from the Security Section of the Facilities and Services Division. A15 STANDARDS AND CODES Compliance with the Standards and Codes listed in Part B is required. (Some of this material is available on line and a list of relevant addresses is included in Appendix C. Note: The ANU expects best practice designs for university projects and lists numerous standards to be complied with in Appendix C. Where advanced equipment is specified, designers must consider possible undesirable consequences such as harmonic disturbances, nuisance tripping, RF emissions and susceptibility, magnetic field effects, etc. The University encourages innovative design but the Facilities and Services Division must be consulted before pursuing designs outside standard practice. A16 STREET AND AREA SECURITY LIGHTING The University requirements for street and area security lighting should be confirmed at the conceptual design stage. Lighting external to buildings shall be circuited in such a manner that it can be integrated with the Campus BMS controlled street light switching regime, details of which are available from the Facilities and Services Division. A CCTV system will be installed on the ANU Campus in stages. There may be specific requirements for lighting where the CCTV will be installed. Liaise with the Facilities and Services Division as required. Luminaires shall be appropriate for the function and shall match or harmonise with the local fittings and the Campus environment. Generally, footpaths and local areas are lit by Pierlite PTC type standard aluminium finish luminaires with 70W HPS lamps, in-ground mounted 3.5 metres above ground level on unpainted hot dipped galvanised tapered octagonal columns. Street lighting and small carparks will be dependent on the specific requirements but shall generally have a batwing distribution and be mounted on tapered galvanised columns with an element of overhang. Special attention shall be given to the avoidance of light pollution, ie excessive light distribution above the horizontal plane. As a general rule, street and area lighting shall be provided by high pressure sodium lamps. A number of existing concrete street and area lighting columns are wired using a concentric neutral conductor with no direct earthing. This type of cable is no longer used at the University however there is a requirement that all new street lighting columns are effectively earthed. Refer to DRG S902/E/037 1/1 for general guidance of earthing requirements for new street lighting. A17 TELEPHONE AND DATA COMMUNICATIONS CABLING Communication cabling for telephone and data services is the responsibility of a separate division at the University called Information Infrastructure Services (IIS) who operate in conjunction with the Facilities and Services Division. Because of the commonality within the systems, designers are required to liaise with both the Facilities and Services Division and IIS in the planning and design of these services.
