Secondary Circuit Analysis

Secondary Circuit Analysis is an electrical calculation that allows designers to perform "what-if" scenarios to determine the type of equipment that will maximize the network's performance. Secondary Circuit Analysis helps designers calculate:

kVA Load: This calculation determines the amount of kVA demand a transformer will have for a given design.

Voltage Flicker: This calculation determines the amount voltage fluctuates briefly when a motor (such as an air conditioner) is started.

Voltage Drop: This calculation determines how much the voltage decreases through the transformer and along the secondary and service lines.

Fault Calculation: This calculation determines the amount of current that flows through a short circuit.

Secondary Circuit Analysis helps ensure the the designer uses the proper equipment to maintain the proper voltage without over-installing and increasing costs.
