IEC/TR 61200-52:2013 is Technical Report which serves as a supplement to IEC 60364-5-52:2009 and explains the rules so as to facilitate the design, selection, erection and maintenance of wiring systems. It follows the numbering of that standard. This technical report is written for everyone concerned with the design, the selection and supply of equipment, as well as the persons who install, maintain and use electrical installations. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1993, and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- guidance associated with conduit systems, cable ducting systems, cable trunking systems, cable tray systems and cable ladder systems has been added giving, for example, recommended maximum straight lengths of conduit to ease the installation circuit wiring;
- guidance associated with selection and erection of wiring systems in relation to external influences has been extended to cover impact, and other mechanical stresses;
- guidance for grouping of cables has been added; and
- guidance on maximum temperatures of terminals in normal service conditions has been extended.

This Technical Report applies to low-voltage installations with a nominal system frequency of 50 Hz in which the circuits consist of insulated conductors, cables or busbar trunking systems.
It defines the different parameters used for the calculation of the characteristics of electrical wiring
systems in order to comply with rules of HD 384/HD 60364.
These rules are mainly the following:
- current-carrying capacities of the conductors;
- characteristics of protective devices in regard to protection against overcurrent;
- verification of thermal stress in conductors due to short-circuit current or earth fault current;
- fault protection (protection against indirect contact) in TN systems and IT systems;
- limitation of voltage drop;
- verification of mechanical stresses during short-circuit in busbar trunking systems (BTS) according to EN 60439-2 or powertrack systems according to EN 61534 series.
The calculations provided in this Technical Report are only applicable where the characteristics of the circuits are known.
For the purpose of this document, when referring to Busbar Trunking Systems, Powertrack Systems
are also considered.
NOTE 1 Mechanical stress during short-circuit is covered by IEC 60865.
NOTE 2 In general these calculations concern supply by HV/LV transformer, but they are also applicable to supply by LV/LV transformer and LV back-up generators.
NOTE 3 Effects of harmonics currents are not covered by this document.
This Technical Report is also applicable for checking the compliance of the results of calculations
performed by software programs for calculation of cross-sectional area of insulated conductors, crosssectional area of cables and characteristics for selection of busbar trunking systems with
HD 384/HD 60364.

This standard gives guidance on writing the technical specification for the procurement of equipment for use in electricity generating stations (power stations). This Guide for procurement is not applicable to equipment for use in the nuclear reactor plant area of nuclear power stations. Other possible applications of such equipment have not been considered in the preparation of this Guide. This Guide on cabling systems deals with a wide range of activities and may be used for any or all of these activities by selection of the relevant parts e.g.: - provision of support for cable; - laying of cable; - completion of cable ends; The Guide covers the installation of power cable up to and including 20,8/36 (42) kV and the supply and installation of control and instrumentation cable. The supply of power cable is covered by EN 45510-2-8. The Guide includes the installation of protective conductor cable for earthing and equipotential bonding up to the main earthing busbar(s), but not the below ground earth-electrode network. The equipment covered by this Guide is defined by its function rather than design type. Therefore, the guidance to the specification is stated in performance terms rather than being specified by a detailed description of the equipment to be supplied. This Guide indicates to potential purchasers how their specification should be prepared so that - the equipment type and capacity interfaces correctly with other elements of the systems, - predicted performance is achieved, - ancillary equipment is properly sized, - reliability, availability and safety requirements are achieved, - proper consideration is given to the evaluation process and the quality measures to be applied. This Guide does not determine the type of specification (e.g. detailed, performance, functional) or the extent of supply for any given contract which is normally decided on the basis of the purchaser's project strategy. It does not cover - any commercial, contractual or legal issues which are normally in separate parts of an enquiry, - any allocation of responsibilities which are determined by the contract. This Guide does not prescribe the arrangement of the documents in the enquiry. NOTE As a comprehensive European environmental policy is still under preparation, this Guide does not address the environmental implications of the equipment.
