    Table of info from DNO

    Is there any such thing called Table of info from DNO that, for a given main fuse rating and nominal voltage and Ze, you have the info for maximum PFC and so on? For instance what could be the PFC for a 230 volts nominal voltage and 0.8 ohms Ze? Thanks

    disconnection times v voltage bands

    Guys BS 7671 table 41.1 shows that a disconnection time of 0.4 secs for 120<volts to <inc 230 volts, and a disconnection time of 0.2 at 230< to < inc 400v. (TN systems). My query is with a 10%+/- tolerance which could possibly increase 230 volts to 253 volts hence taking your 230v 0.4s disc...
