Fault loop impedance The earth fault-loop impedance in an MEN system comprises the following parts, starting and ending at the point of the fault. a) The protective earthing conductor, (PE), including the main earthing terminal/connection or bar and MEN. b) The neutral return path, consisting of the neutral conductor, (N), between the main neutral terminal or bar and the point at the transformer (the earth return path RG to RB has a relatively high resistance and may be ignored for an individual installation in an MEN system)

Fault loop impedance c) The path through the neutral point of the transformer and the transformer winding. d) The active conductors as far as the point of the fault. The earth fault-loop is normally regarded as consisting of the following two parts- i) conductors upstream or external to the reference point; and ii) conductors down stream or internal to the reference point. Refer to appendix B for detail

Determine maximum route length to satisfy fault loop impedance.
The maximum length of a circuit can be determined using Table B1 (Exceptions include circuits wired in 4mm² cable protected by a 16A or 20A Type C MCB) The maximum length for this example will need to be calculated

Calculation 16A MCB A 4mm² Cable protected by a 16A MCB can be run 109m and not exceed the earth fault loop impedance requirements
