Components used to make the Surge Protection Device Connection:

01. Single Phase Energy Meter

Single Phase Energy Meter
Fig 2: Single Phase Energy Meter
The measuring device with the help of which the electric power or energy of a circuit is measured is called Energy Meter (Energy Meter). Also called a watt-hour or kilowatt-hour meter. For home appliances, we used a single-phase energy meter. The single-phase energy meter is directly connected between the line and the load. Both coils produce their magnetic fields, when the meter is connected to the supply line, and the load. Energy meters are used in homes and in industrial applications where we want to found that how much energy is being consumed by home appliances and electrical equipment.

02. DP MCB 

Fig 3:  DP MCB
Double pole MCB can control two wires. This circuit breaker is generally used in single-phase electric lines. Double pole MCB circuit breaker input has two wires supply two wires and an output. In a single-phase line, A double-pole MCB circuit breaker is used to give good production. This circuit breaker is provided through phase and neutral circuit breaker, it is very safe. This circuit breaker is preferred for home appliances. A DP MCB usually trips for 2 reasons 1. Overload 2. Short circuit.

03. RCCB

Fig 4: RCCB
The RCCB (Residual Current Circuit Breaker) or RCCB is an electrical protective device.Residual Current Circuit Breaker is specially designed to protect the electrical circuit against earth fault and human from electrical shock.In this, under normal condition the load is always connected in between the phase terminal to neutral terminal, hence the flow of phase current is equal to neutral current.Earth fault or fault in a power system can cause excess heating, more power consumption, burning or fire, etc. So, protection against earth leakage is very important.

04. RCBO

Fig 5: RCBO
RCBO Stands For Residual Current Circuit Breaker With Over-Current. These devices are designed to ensure the safe operation of electrical circuits breaker, triggering disconnection whenever an imbalance is detected. The other type of electrical fault is the overcurrent flow, which may take the form of an overload or short circuit. The residual current circuit breaker (RCBO) insulation should also operate within the corresponding specifications. This thereby provides protection for people, equipment, and property.

05. SP MCB

Fig 6: SP MCB
MCB SP means single pole it protects only one phase switching. MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker) Curswitch is the most basic general-purpose switch that you use to control a light or another device from one location. These Switches Have Two Brass-Colored Screw Terminals Connected to the hot Power Source Wires. (MCB) For any Distribution Board, the Protection System Must be Used in The Incomer. Phase and Neutral Single Phase Supply to break. 120-volt circuits, 15-20 amp single pole breaker is typically used.

06. Busbar

Fig 7: Busbar
Busbar is a type of power transmission sheet. It is made of copper or brass or aluminum. Busbar is mostly used in factories. We supply the power from the transformer to the busbar. Busbars have electricity. We take the electricity from this busbar to the circuit breaker. The busbar is drilled with a drill machine and the cable is connected with a nut bolt. The advantage of using a busbar is that through it we can provide multiple power connections in multiple places very easily.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of MCB for surge protection?

FuseBox Type 2 surge protection and device (or SPD for short) T2 for TN Project Systems. Compact 1 modular width version that comes with a 32A MCB and connecting and cable. Suitable for retrofitting into existing power supply consumer units to provide surge Circuit diagram protection.

What size wire for surge protection?

These external and lightning protection Project systems must then be connected to the electrical system's main earth bar with at Circuit diagram least 16mm² copper cable from the lightning and protection earth by an experienced lightning protection installer.

How is SPD size calculated?

The formula to determine this will depend on the power supply type of system. For example, for a single-phase project system (also called a split-phase system), the line-to-line voltage is divided by 2. The result is the optimal Power supply amount of volts that the SPD should have for that Project system.

How do you calculate surge voltage?

To calculate the power supply surge current, divide the voltage and waveform by the impedance of the Circuit diagram connection between the originating event and the Project system. You can determine the impedance by looking at the electrical connection between the origination of the surge and the protected line.

What size cable should be used?

Normally 6 mm² is used for the uprights, 2.5 mm² for the circuits that power the sockets or fixed appliances such as the air conditioner, and 1.5 mm² for the light circuits. Continuing with general information, the larger the Currenttlou section of an electric cable, the greater the current that will Currenttlou pass.
