Hi all I am having trouble trying to work out the total load and swa cable size.
I have 10 circuits in a outhouse 40 meters from the mains power supply 1 x lighting with 10 lights, 1 x lighting with 10 lights.
1 x 2.5mm radial for 2 heaters, 1 x 2.5mm radial for heater. 3 x 2.5mm socket rings with 3 sockets on each ring, 1 x water heater radial for 2 instantaneous hot water... I have calculated the lights at 100w per light x 20= 2kw, the heaters are around 3kw x3 =9kw.
Water heaters 3kw each=6kw... The problem is the sockets as I'm not sure what's going to be plugged in apart from a kettle. working them out at 13amp x 230v gives me nearly 3kw per socket x9 = 27kw which seems unrealistic... Adding all that up before diversity is 44kw which seems way ott for that. Thanks all
