1 Space for Electrical Installations
The spaces required for different electrical installations are given at 1.1 to 1.3
1.1 Electric Sub-station – The norms given in 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 shall be adopted for provision of space for sub-station.
1.1.1 Area Requirements for Sub-Station for buildings
||Total covered area(in sq.m)
||Transformer capacity(in KVA)
||Transformer capacity(in KVA)

||2 X 630
||2 X 630
||2 X 630
1. For additional 1000 sq.mt. Covered area, a load of 90 KVA will come up with 150 KVA TR. Capacity at 60 % loading.
2. For additional of one transformer as per covered area, a space of additional 16 sq.mt. is to be provided.
3. In case of any deviation in space size due to unavoidable circumstance, the same may be considered with the approval of Electricity Board.
4. The floor of the sub-station shall have cable trenches of 0.6 mt. depth, the layout for which will be given at the time of actual construction. For this purpose, a dummy floor of 0.6 mt. depth shall be provided to facilitate cutting/digging of floor for installation of equipment’s and making subsequent changes in trenches. This floor shall be capable to withstand minimum load of 10 tones of each transformer mounted on flour wheels. The break-up spaces required for different installations in a sub-station are given as below:
a) Supply company’s Switchgear room and or space of meters.
b) Transformer Rooms: The number and size of transformer rooms shall be ascertained from the total power requirements of the company. To determine the size of transformer and clearance around a transformer, reference may be made to good practice (I.S.1887-1967 code of practice for installation and maintenance of Transformer). A 500 KVA transformer may be provided with a minimum space of 4 mt. X 4 mt.
