PART 111—ELECTRIC SYSTEMS—GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
Subpart 111.52—Calculation of Short-Circuit Currents
The following short-circuit assumptions must be made for a system with an aggregate generating capacity below 1500 kilowatts, unless detailed computations in accordance with §111.52-5 are submitted:
(a) The maximum short-circuit current of a direct current system must be assumed to be 10 times the aggregate normal rated generator currents plus six times the aggregate normal rated currents of all motors that may be in operation.
(b) The maximum asymmetrical short-circuit current for an alternating current system must be assumed to be 10 times the aggregate normal rated generator currents plus four times the aggregate normal rated currents of all motors that may be in operation.
(c) The average asymmetrical short-circuit current for an alternating-current system must be assumed to be 81⁄2 times the aggregate normal rated generator currents plus 31⁄2 times the aggregate normal rated currents of all motors that may be in operation.
