Example: Calculate PVC Trunking size for following Power Cables running through Trunking .

Consider 10% as
Future expansion
30 Nos of 1.5 Sq.mm Stranded Cables
50 Nos of 2.5 Sq.mm Stranded Cables
20 Nos of 4 Sq.mm Stranded Cables
Cable Factor for Trunking as per IEEE

Calculations:
As per Table Cable Factor for 1.5 Sq.mm Stranded Cable=8.1
As per Table Cable Factor for 2.5 Sq.mm Stranded Cable=11.4
As per Table Cable Factor for 2.5 Sq.mm Stranded Cable=22.9
Total Cable Factor= No of Cables X Cable Factor
Total Cable Factor=(30X8.1)+(50X11.4)+(20X22.9)
Total Cable Factor=1271
Total Cable Factor After 10% Future Expansion=1271+127 =1398
As per Table Suitable Size for PVC Trunking for Cable Factor 1398 is 100 X 37.5
Suitable PVC Trunking is 100 X 37.5 mm
