Firstly you'll be required to not rely on that 1361 cut out fuse for protection of the supply, so decide on what size you will require.

ok so after applying diversity Ib = 91.5A and In=100A
so from table 4d4a multi-core armored 70'c refrence method D you get 99A for 25mm cable.

then volts drop mv/a/m = 1.75

so...
1.75 x 91.5A x 40 mtr /1000 to convert to volts = 6.405v

now if it was a final circuit not for lighting this would be ok (as it doesnt exceed 11.5v 5%). but its for a distribution circuit so if i was to then have other circuits running of it the volts drop would increase how do i account for this??
