# MEDUIM VOLTAGE CABLE SIZING

1- Assumptions:
1.1 Minimum cable size for Meduim Voltage feeders is 50 sq.mm
1.2 Circuit breaker tripping time on short circuit is 200ms.
1.3 Constant reflecting conductor material constant and temperature rise during
short circuit condition is 143 for XLPE.
1.4 As per client requirement, cable sizes above 185 sq.mm shall be single
core installed in trefoil.
1.5 Starting current for medium voltage motors are equals to 5 times the full load current.
2- References:
2.1 Electrical design basis specification no.. 24613-200-3DR-E12F-00001.
2.2 PIRELLI Cables catalogue for 300V-33000V cables
3- Calculations
