    Hello sir,
    I actually performed some physical tests on Power Transformers but I’m interested in the digital aspect and how I can deploy the use of algorithm. Also that I want to simulate the practical result onto the simulation model. I would need assistance on how to apply my result on the simulation platform.
    I crave your indulgence to assist me to gain the knowledge.
    I wish to send you the test results. My mail address is [email protected]
    Thanks in anticipation.
    Regards.

    Good day sir, please with winding test, ratio test and excitation test on transformer
    how can I know the capacity of a transformer (KVA) without looking at the name plate.

    Buenos días Ing. Edvard cordial saludo, quisiera saber cuando abra una hoja de cálculo de las que ofrecen en forma gratuita, por qué me pide contraseña y si trato de buscarla me dice que debo pagar.
    Cómo desbloqueola hoja en Excel para poder trabajar.

    Ejemplo la hoja de Nivel de Cortocircuito?
    Quedo atento a su respuesta
    Feliz día

    sir
    kindly let me know the cable size calculation complete formula and explain how to use that formula .Even i want to know the various design aspects of electrical design of cable size ,cable selection,

    Very handy tool. Would like to see the cables listed in AWG size also and standard measurements compared to metrics. I am an American, we are different, haha!

    Hi Edvard, good afternoom

    Please, do you have a sheet plan to short circuit in CC?

    Best regards.

    Dear sir
    i have three question

    1-could i know the formula you used from which standard or code you take it ?
    2- for Phase Conductor Constant , can you send me the catalogs which took from (because it different from country to other ) ?
    3- Do you have an AWG cable size equivalent ? (whith mention your resource )

    best regards

    you may also consider Short Circuit Analytic software program and mobile apps for short circuit fault current calculations. The program factors in both active and reactive parts of equipment impedance and takes into account fault current contributions from multiples sources including motors and generators:

    IEC 61914 covers the electrical engineering calculation for the correct selection and specification of cable cleats to retain power cables in the event of a short-circuit http://www.cablejoints.co.uk/blog/article/iec61914-cable-cleats-ellis-patents
