## Equivalent dia for the calculated cross section

As per CBIP "manual on Substation" publication number 223, corrosion allowance is recommended as per following rule In case of conductor to be laid in soil having soil resistivity greater than In case of conductor to be laid in soil having soil resistivity from In case of conductor to be laid in soil having soil resistivity lower than 25 to 100 W-m - No allowance 100 W-m - 15 % allowance 25 W-m - 30 % allowance

SAFETY CHECK For the safe earthing design, attainable step & touch voltaes should be less than the tolerable values respectively, Attainable Tolerable

## Touch voltage in V Step voltage in V

990.37 3295.4

The attainable touch as well as step voltages is well below the tolerable limit. Hence the design is safe.
