    Small caravan site: Walk in freezer converter to toilet/shower room

    Hi, I have a client with a small caravan site, approx 5 hookups. His old toilet block was nothing much more than an old shed. He's now 'upgraded' to using an old walk-in freezer, no wheels, but was just lifted onto blocks from a trailer. He has kitted it out with 4 toilets and one shower which...

    How to calculate site load and availability for expansion?

    I have been tasked with seeing if a site is capable of accommodating a large new installation. I have done some working out but I'm not sure if I am going down the right lines, as this is not my area of expertise. The site has a main fused switch disconnector on the main incoming supply...

    Repurposed 3.2 KVA site transformer drawing 56A

    I never did like transformer theory in my degree course and that was 40 years ago. I'm a boat builder now and we tend to have big battery banks and thus big chargers with all sorts of dodgy stuff going on. I have repurposed a series of power transformers to be used as the basis of high power...

    Caravan site vs caravan electrics

    There’s been a few recent threads about caravans, caravan sites etc, and I thought I’d post up some photos I took today while on one such site. This is on a caravan club site, so I would assume it’s all done correctly. Main HV transformer for just this site. 208 pitches, 2x shower blocks...

    Repair a site transformer ?

    I'm repairing a 110 v 3 kva site transformer that the base cracked and all the sand leaked out, can anyone tell me exactly what the sand is there for and can I replace it with any dry sand or even just leave it out? The transformer won't be used on site but at home.

    I've got what may be a stupid question but the only answer that I can come up with is 'because it says so in AS 3000', is there a reason why you only get 5% voltage drop when your transformer is on the site but not dedicated to the site? To me, the physics would suggest that it should be no...
