In previous posts i have explained about electrical drawings, electrical panel component etc.. For smooth working of motor which is connected to the mcc panel, cable size selection has an important role. We have to consider lot of things for selecting a proper cable, like motor rating (Kilowatt,Horse power),Voltage(230v, 415 v etc.),Phase(Single, 3 phase),Temperature, Distance between motor and mcc.
Motor Full load current * 1.2
2.Inside cables – Motor circuit cable rating.
Motor full load current * 0.7
Now you will be having a doubt how to find out the full load current of a motor?
Full load current=(746*hp)/(1.732*V*pf*eff) or KW/(1.732*v*pf*eff)
1 hp=745.7 W=0.746 kw
Single phase motor Full load current table [Horse power,Kilo watt]
Three phase motot Full load current table [Horse power,Kilo watt]
