calculate using formula K²s² = I²t .

K= constant depending on material of conductor(Ref BS 7671),s= cross sectional area of conductor ,I = short circuit current flowing in that circuit & t = time for which short circuit current flows.

As per the IS in each lighting circuit there should not be more than 800W, if we follow the rule, and the distribution transformer its impedance is usually 5% so calculating the Isc it is almost it is 7.2KA but manufacture,r manufacture 10KA so we usually use current rating of that equipment/Plant with Isc KA
