 03 March 2010 08:04 AM deleted_1_Martin57 Posts: 2 Joined: 02 March 2010 Could someone check my voltage drop calculation? The voltage drop on a circuit supplied from a 230v source by 16mm two core copper cable 23m long, clipped direct and carrying a design current 33Amp. Actual Voltage Drop = MV/A/M x Ib x Length then divided 1000. Therefore. 2.8 x 33 x 23 divided by 1000 = 2.12 volts (2.8 from table 4D2B page 277 BS7671) The answer given in the book I am using is written this way.. Vc = mV x Ib x L divided 1000. Therefore. 28 x 33 x 23 divided 1000 = 21.25 volts So where does the author get 28 for his calculation? I'm reading 2.8 in the IEE Regulations. What is the answer? Is it 2.12 volts which is my understanding or the books author 21.25 volts?

By the way 21.25 volt drop does not look like the right answer. Regards Chris Chew 03 March 2010 02:56 PM Robo Posts: 15 Joined: 07 October 2004 Martin, Your result looks OK to me. Looks like a typo in the book you have. Just to confirm, voltage drop figures are given in mV/A/m, or in the case of 16mm sq = 2.8x10-3/A/m. So no need for the divide by a 1000 if you start off in mV.

Robo, thank you for your knowledge.

Thanks
