What Changed

So that we can focus all our efforts on our new application, we have retired our myElectrical.com cable sizing calculator. We recommend you now use our main cable sizing application over at myCableEngineering.com.

myCableEngineering.com

Cable Sizing Software - select, size and manage your power cables using myCableEngineering. All your cables, for all your projects.
  • LV and MV cables up to 33 kV with current capacity in accordance with BS 7671, ERA 69-30 and IEC 60502.
  • Positive and zero sequence impedance to IEC 60609. Voltage drop in accordance with CENELEC CLC/TR 50480.
  • Project management and team collaboration, with clear easy to read calculations and reports.

Our software is the only cloud-based solution and has been built from the ground up to be fully responsive - meaning you can access your cables from anywhere and on any device, desktop, tablet or smartphone.

Motor Starting Time Calculator

Calculate the approximate starting time for asynchronous motors. Please review the notes towards the bottom of the page to understand the implications.

This Cacluation

The calculation uses the simplified method given in our site post 'How to Calculate Motor Starting Time' to determine the approximate starting time.

Tips:

per unit voltage: this setting allows for reduced voltage starting scenarios.  For for direct online starting the motor would be operated at full voltage (per unit voltage =1).  For star-delta the voltage during starting would be 1/√3 of the normal running voltage  (per unit voltage = 0.577).  Similar situation for other starting methods.
