2. Choosing the casings

Overall dimensions:

Caution! Installation of Masterpact, Compact C and Compact NS requires compliance with the safety perimeters defined in the installation guides for these devices.

NB: the switchgear and overall dimensions chosen below are based on 80% of cases encountered in our equipment activities.

The dimensions take into account the installation of the device, connections and busbars as well as the position of the current transformers (CTs) , all of the RS brand.

,:{'3ition of the horizontal riOsbar only:

The distance between the edge of the bar and the outer edge of the

cubicle frame will always be the same, i.e, 65 mm. This enables standardisation of splice bar length.

NB: provide splice bar connection holes for possible future extensions.

The vertical busbar supports will be fixed inside the cubicle frame.

Definition:

A busbar enabling distribution of power over several cubicles:

2 positions:

- at the top of the cubicle

- at the bottom of the cubicle

Horizontal busbar length without vertical busbar

column width 700 900 1100
busbar length 570 770 970 The advantages of this position:

-a constant distance is ensured between the edge of the bar (fixed support side) and the outer edge of the cubicle frame whatever the bar width.

- splice bars always have the same length regardless of the cross-section of the vertical busbars.

- space savings at the device/busbar shunts, thereby simplifying installation of the current transformers. -increased fixing solidity of the busbar/framework assembly.

NB:

A maximum distance of 50 mm between the busbar comb axis and the edge of the bar must be respected. It has undergone a quality test.

3. Making the power circuit 3.1.3 Distances between supports

Basic principles

The vertical busbar supports (catalogue numbers 07412 and 07417 Prisma P I 07485 and 07487 Prism a PH) guarantee the mechanical withstand of the main circuit particularly on occurrence of a short-circuit. The maximum distance between the supports depends on the allowable short-time rated current and on the number, cross-section and distance between centres of the busbars (75 or 112.5).

NB: the bottom supports (catalogue numbers 07414 and 07418 Prisma P/07495 and 07497 Prisma PH) do not contribute to electrodynamic force withstand.

Application rules

The distance between the supports must be at most equal to the value given in the various tables.

NB: the values for the maximum distances are expressed in mm. The following tables were developed using the certificates of conformity n° 63/291321 and 63/291322 issued for ASEFA. The tables must be used in AC three-phase 50 Hz or 60 Hz.

3.1.5 General connection information

Prisma P cubicle busbar/device connections

There are two possible types of bar connections between the device and the busbar:

.. Edgewise connection terminal pad

.. Flat connection terminal pad (this configuration limits the current flowing through the bar as dissipation will not be as good as with an edgewise connection terminal pad.

Due to temperature problems, flat bars have the following limitations:

.. Flat bar: use up to M20 for IP ::; 30. .. Flat bar: use up to M16 for IP ~ 31.

Connecting Compact NS circuit-breakers by bar tail

If the Compact NS circuit-breakers cannot be connected directly to the connection terminal pads or using spreaders, bar tails should be used (see diagram opposite).

In order to make the bar tails, use the cross-sections given in the table below which depend on the device to be connected.

3.2.1 Thermal management of switchboards

Thermal management of switchboards

A switchboard is designed to operate in a normal environment. Most devices only function correctly in a temperature range of between -10 and +50°C.

It is important to maintain switchboard internal temperature within this temperature range: - by sizing it properly in the design stage.

- by correcting the thermal state by suitable means.

Standard means for monitoring internal temperature

Temperature too low

A heating resistor is used to raise the switchboard internal temperature: - to prevent water condensation by limiting temperature variations,

- to prevent formation of frost

Temperature too high

There are several means of dissipating the heat given off by a switchboard. The following table summarises the various heat dissipation means (the first two are naturally ensured by Merlin Gerin casings, the third is commonly ensured on request, and the last two must be s ecificall re uested .

- the electrical properties of the conductive core,

- the temperature withstand and behaviour in fire of the insulator.

.. Scope and application

Particularly suited for electrical junctions in metal and non-metal industrial cubicles.

Cables

3. Making the power circuit 3.2.5 Cable connection

.. Practical rules:

Schneider recommends cabling according to the circuit-breaker trip unit rating. The cable cross-section must be chosen according to:

- the current,

- the ambient temperature around the

conductors,

- the switchboard protection index .

o These tables take account of the installation conditions for the device type (allowable temperatures at the connection terminal pads, etc.).

In order to allow direct reading without taking account of derating, the values are increased by approximately 10%.

Enclosures: volume, power and connecting lengths are small. Values will be chosen from the «bundle» columns always according to the IP.

PE protective conductor

III Sizing

This conductor must be sized and installed in the switchboard so as to withstand the thermal and electrodynamic stresses of the fault current.

Standards IEC 439.1 and NF EN 60439.1 define a method used to calculate the protective conductor cross-section according to the live conductor cross-section, provided that the same metal is used.

o To allow connections in the workshop and on site

o To check tightening

NB: only one cable can be fitted on each protective conductor terminal.

Normally a bare copper busbar with a 25 x 5 cross-section can be used in most electrical switchboards produced with Merlin Gerin switchgear.

It is installed in the duct and secured on cable tie-bars.

NB:

o If Isc < 50 kA install a busbar with a 25 x 5 cross-section

o If lsc ~ 50 kA install a busbar with a 50 x 5 cross-section

3. Making the power circuit 3.3.1 PE protective conductor

III Installation

This conductor, normally made up of a flat copper busbar, is usually installed on the cable tie-bars or angle brackets in the connection duct (see diagram opposite). However, any other support can be used provided care is taken to ensure permanent equipotential bonding (use of fixing bolts with picot edge washers: see illustration on page 28).

Equipotential bonding is essential if several cubicles are joined up (connect all the earthing bars to one another).

Caution: when making the splice bars, make sure their cross-sections are always at least

, (" 'al to the cross-section of the conductor to

! '; .'

:';",connected.

Depending on the earthing system, make sure this bar is well and truly connected to the PEN.

NB:

According to the configurations, it is often preferable to install the PE, PEN or Neutral busbars after the switchgear support plates have been mounted, in order to optimise conductor routing.

3. Making the power circuit 3.3.2 PEN protective conductor

Cross-section

The PEN cross-section is determined in the same way as a neutral conductor, Le.

I! For single-phase circuits or circuits with a cross-section of ::;; 16 rnrn- in copper, it must be equal to the cross-section of the phase conductors.

I! For three-phase circuits or circuits with a cross-section>

16 rnrn" in copper, it may be:

o Equal to the phase conductor cross-section

o Less than this cross-section provided that:

- the power of the single-phase loads does not exceed 10% of the total power

- the current likely to flow through the neutral in normal operation is less than the conductor allowable current.

Installation

It must be accessible:

1!_,ln order to allow connections in the workshop and on site i:-o monitor tightening

rne PEN can be installed instead and in place of the neutral.

The PEN practical rules are as follows:

I! At the switchboard inlet, the PEN connection point must be adjacent to that of the phases.

I! Inside the unit, the PEN conductor does not need to be isolated from the external conductive parts (except in rooms where there is a risk of fire or explosion).

I! The cross-section of the PEN conductor must be at least equal to that of the neutral.

I! The cross-section remains constant on the main busbar. I! Changeover from the TNC to TNS system must take place at a single point of the switchboard:

o If the PEN is a cable, changeover takes place via a neutral disconnection strip which is marked, accessible and removable in order to simplify fault loop impedance ( . measurement.

'_jf the PEN is a bar, it must be connected to the protective conductor by a removable splice bar so that the insulation measurements can be taken (see diagram below)

NB: when changing from the TNC to the TNS system, the PE must always be placed upstream of the PEN.

I! A TNC cannot be recreated after changeover to TNS.

The PE and neutral must meet their specific requirements.

3. Making the power circuit 3.4 Assembly rules

Screw assemblies

III Scope of application

All screw-on electrical and mechanical assemblies.

Use bichromate zincked steel screws and bolts (Zn8e) class 8-8.

The tightening torques are defined overleaf.

For the screw-washer connection, choose a washer whose hardness is at least equivalent to the screw hardness (E 25 fY'''I. paragraph 5.2.3.2).

I \

III Basic principle

The bearing surface must be designed to prevent creep of the tightened material both under the nut and under the screw head. The chosen system must ensure the device cannot come loose, e.g. H nut + contact washer. After tightening to the necessary torque these screws and bolts retain all their mechanical properties in time (elasticity) without material buckling (creep).

Bolted assemblies must always be

NB: use of a nut with notched base may be advantageous in some cases where assembly and accessibility are a problem. However, it is more expensive and use of a non-syrnrnetrlcal assembly is not viable as regards to loosening (use of a notched base bolt is recommended). It does not ensure equipotential bonding.

The cage nut must be adapted to the thickness of the sheet metal on which it is fixed.

NB: the cage nut does not ensure equipotential bonding unless the picot edge cage nut is used.

3.5 Installing the current transformers

Installing the current transformers

Installation on flat busbars

The current transformer should preferably be installed on: ~ the transfer bus bar

~ the device / busbar connection

~ the connection bars placed upstream of the device.

NB:

II For space-consuminq current transformers, a staggered layout is recommended in order to prevent flashover on the fixing bolts and excessive separation between the phase conductors.

III In the case of several busbars per phase, a wedge should be fitted between the busbars in order to: ~ maintain the tightening pressure when the current transformer is installed,

~ prevent vibrations causing the current transformers to break.

Place the current transformer so that the identification marking is visible.
