IEC 60287-1-3:2002 Annex A - Calcuation of impedances

IEC 60287-1-3:2002 Annex A - Calcuation of impedances

IEC 60287-1-3:2002 Annex A - Calcuation of impedances


I am struggling to calculate the impedances in Example 1, IEC 60287-1-3:2002 Annex A.

Anyone who knows how the reactances are calculated?


RE: IEC 60287-1-3:2002 Annex A - Calcuation of impedances


Thanks a lot for your responses.

I still dont understand table A.1.

In the formula for Xi,k, the LN function is LN(di+1,k/di,k), how can i=1, k=1 be equal to R2R1 ie. 1000 and not 12.73?


RE: IEC 60287-1-3:2002 Annex A - Calcuation of impedances

The author of the standard does not explain why the reactance is so calculated.
However, if we take other publication like EPRI EL-5036-V4 Appendix A
the voltage of A phase will be
EAn=Ia1(RA1+jXA1)+IA2(jXA1-A2)+IB1*(jXA1-B1)...+IA(RL+jXL) where:
RA1=A1conductor resistance
XA1=A1conductor self reactance=LA1*0.023/1000*(K'+LN(1/rc))
XA1-A2 =mutual reactance A1-A2=LA1*0.023/1000*(LN(1/DA1-A2))
rc= conductor radius[inches]
We can write (K'+LN(1/rc))=LN(1/α/rc) and if K’=0.25 (K'+LN(1/rc))= 0.687468
and (1/α/rc)=exp(0.687468)= 1.988674 and α=0.7788 for solid conductor.
For 127 wires then α*rc=32.8/2*0.776=12.73 mm.
For sheath-since it is not a stranded wires conductor no need α then- the distance will be 48/2=24
EA1n=IA1(RA1+jXA1)+IA2(jXA1-A2)+IB1*(jXA1-B1)...+IA(RL+jXL) for conductor A1
EA2n=IA2(RA2+jXA2)+IA1(jXA1-A2)+IB1*(jXA2-B1)...+IA(RL+jXL) for conductor A2
But EA1n=EA2n then EA1n-EA2n=0
if for i=1 and k=1 we put α*rc and for i=i+1=2 k=1 we put DA1-A2 then we get Xi,k=K*LN(DA1-A2/(α*rc))
then on pos.1 we get RA1+j*K*ln(1000/12.72) where K=2*ω/10^7.
