## Electrical tools (MS Excel Spreadsheets)

This section is dedicated to tools **every electrical engineer can use in daily work**. These spreadsheets below will make your job much more easier, alowing you to shorten the time used for endless calculations of cables, voltage drop, various selections of circuit breakers, capacitors, cable size and so on.

Spreadsheets are mostly developed by expirienced electrical engineers and programmers (thank you mr. Jignesh Parmar!) and by well known manufacturers of electrical equipment. They all really did an awesome job, you must admit!

Just to mention that all calculation spreadsheets are **free** for download! ;)

Thanks for the good Job

i need refererence to start learning electrical systems from scratch, which is the best books to start with

HT motor cable calculations

Dear sir,

Can you please help in my one project ..I have some doubts on distribution system i.e. hvds and lvds

I think lvds is better than hvds in suburban areas because of large no’s of consumers

Plz help me on this

DEAR SIR,

I HAVE ONE TECHNICAL QUERY PLAESE I WANT SOLUTION

” AT WELL PAD I WANT TO PROVIDE EARTHING TO METALIC FENCE FENCE L&W IS 180X150 M2.

FAULT CURRENT IS 10 KA. VOLTAGE IS 660V AC, LENGTH FROM STATION TO WELL PAD IS 5KM, CABLE SIZE TO SUPPLUYING 660V AC 24V DC CONVERTER PANEL IS 2CX35 SQ MM CABLE.

I WANT TO KNOW CAN I USE 25SQMM ALUMINIUM CABLE FOR FENCE, POST, MAIN GATE EATRHING.

DEAR SIR,

I HAVE ONE TECHNICAL QUERY PLAESE I WANT SOLUTION,WE HAVE OLD DG THATS CONSUMING MORE DIESEL, AROUND 10 YERS OLD, ACCORDINGLY WE HAVE TO REPLACE NEW DG, PLEASE ENERGY COST WORK WITH EXCEL SHEET.

OUR DG DETAILS FOR YOUR REFERENCE.

1) 180KVA,125KVA

2) Current SEGR 33RUPES PER UNIT.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING PORTAL especially to the Author.

Thank you so much for sharing all these tools and documents. These are very important for me especially that I’m teaching college students and doing research also.

Once again, thank you and more power.

Truly yours,

Ellezer Gallon Casiño

Dear all: thanks a lot for all your useful info; that is what we need to work for! The devil is in the details!

Thanks, very usefull

I just love your web site and for a old guy who does estimates and take offs its a great tool. I do have a request. I am being asked by the local AHJ to provide him with a Calc. sheet for a commercial office building where were are replacing (Like as Like) the old FPE panels w/ new updated Sq D. No cables or breakers or circuits are being changed. Just a replacement panel for the old Fed Pacific. He now wants me to do a “load” calc sheet for each office unit, each Panel. Do you have a excel sheet for this Commercial Application? Something simple and easy. The resi one wont work here. Thanks

Steven,

As an AHJ myself, I wonder why he needs a load calc. Are you sure that he didn’t ask for a fault current analysis instead since the older FPE panels didn’t have an AIC rating, so they default to 5kA per the NEC. The new Square D panels would need to be either fully rated for the calculate fault currents at the panel replacement locations or series rated, assuming your local AHJ allows series ratings.

Sorry about the typos above. My cat jumped on my keyboard.

BTW – Replacing a panel with another panel isn’t a like for like replacement, especially for older panels because of the lack of a fault current rating.

Hi,

How to download this template?, I need it.., please.

Thanks.

transformer size-2000kva(11kv/433v)

cable length-150 feets

hv/lv amps-104/2666

we required cable size from transformer to pmcc panel

11kV HT incomer feeder setting: I>>>=INF., I>>=2.5, TI>>=0.65s, IP=0.8, TP=0.25s, IE>>=0.25, TIE>>=0.65s, TEP=0.4s, IEP=0.1

With above settings, can anybody suggest why incomer feeder tripped during outgoing feeder cable fault ?

good work gives good appreciation…….. i like this…….. done a good job thank u

Although I am not an electrical engineer but an electronics on I appriciate your contribution. Some subjects are very similar between the two careers.

Thanks a lot.

great assistance.I have downloaded a few of the spreadsheet. hopefully they serve the intended purpose. great work nevertheless

hi

please send me the password

They are so helpful. Can you please make one for vector group calculations. It must be able to draw the grouping as you put the figures on the spreadsheet.

on the spreadsheet for the calculation of “Load Listing, Calculations & Generator Sizing” why is the default voltage 400 volts rather than the residential voltage of 240 volts? It would be a more useful spreadsheet if you can actually size the loads for a residential home. Thanks, John

Dear Sir,

we need a Dc cable Calculator for find out the size of cable for varies DC motor or invertor.

dear your are doing good job for preparing such excel sheet.

I am requested to prepare excel sheet for calculating per unit value for common base particularly 100 MVA base for transformer, transmission line for all conductors. generators

Thank You very much. Your article is of great help to me as an electrical engineer. It will surely boost my electrical strength.

can you plz upload a sheet that contains calculation of energy savings by correcting the harmonics in the system

Thanks a lot for sharing these resources and that to free of cost.

Appreciate efforts of all involved !!!

Great work please tell us passwords of the sheets so we also can work for improvisation

Dear Team,

Have a nice day.

I have found a lot of valuable spreadsheets on your portal. It’s really a blessing that peoples like you doing a great job.

Would you please confirm me that upto which extent these spread sheets are correct so that I may apply these spread sheets directly to my practical field work with 100 percent of mind satisfaction.

Thank you a lot for sharing.

Firstly, I highly appreciate your contributions. Thank you so much!

Secondly, I have checked all the Excel sheets, I saw that most of them were protected, so I could not see the formulas, which I want to recheck. Can you help me to unlock them??

sir I want to unlock the spreed sheet as most of them were locked and I cant change it according to my use can u give me pas or how to unlock it

These excel worksheets are very useful for design engineers. Thank you for sharing free of cost on purpose knowledge for everyone.

Very nice of you sir.

Thank for your support…

thank you, very useful.

that’s very helpful… great

Thanks a lot this is a great help for professionals and trainers. A real quality work with lots of consideration for fellow professionals in the stream. you are setting a higher example. Once again Thank you very much.

Dear EEP Team,

you are doing a wonderful job by making available such calculations for every day use by practicing engineering professionals, cs nambisan

Thank you so very much.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot. Very Very Helpful

Hello team EEP

As a junior power systems engineer, which coding language would advise me to learn among:

PHP

Front-End Web Development

Website Design

Android Development

iOS Development

Python

C#

WordPress

Thank you

Do you know anything about those languages? They are all completely different. Front-End Web development is not even a language; it’s an area, just like distribution systems engineering.

I suggest you research a little bit before asking a question like this.

HI GUYS, SOMEBODY HELP ME HOW TO COMPUTE MAIN DISTRIBUTION PANEL LOAD SCHEDULE. I WISH SOMEBODY HAVE A SPREADSHEET / XLS TEMPLATE. =)

Thanks for doing a lot of work. It is very good inded.

Could you please clarify if we use chemical earthing ) meaning moisture obsorbing material is filled in around the electrode) will you calculation still be good enough?

hi thanks for all the good tools you guys have come up with. Actually i’m trying to study electrical services design on my own,i got your eplus menuCAD software which i think is a helpful tool. however i still need some step by step guide notes on some basic things i should know. Can you help with any straight to the point books,articles or any literature on electrical services design?
