Consequences of Failure for a 6.6/11 kV transformer

Description

This function calculates consequences of failure for a 6.6/11 kV transformer (cf.section 7, page 71, CNAIM, 2017).

Usage

cof_transformer_11kv(
  kva,
  type,
  type_risk,
  location_risk,
  prox_water,
  bunded,
  no_customers,
  kva_per_customer
)

Arguments

kva

Numeric. The rated transformer capacity measured in kVA for a 6.6/11 kV transformer. Rated capacity is used to derive the type financial factor. For a general description of type financial factor see section 7.3.3.1 on page 76 in CNAIM (2017). A setting of "Default" will result in a type financial factor equal to 1 (cf. section D1.2.1, page 162, CNAIM, 2017).

type

String. Relates to the accessibility of the transformer Options: type = c("Type A", "Type B", "Type C", "Default"). A setting of "Type A" - Normal access. A setting of "Type B" - Constrained access or confined working space. A setting of "Type C" - Underground substation. A setting of "Default" - Normal access thus same as "Type A" setting (cf. table 214, page 164, CNAIM, 2017).

type_risk

String. Risk that the asset presents to the public by its characteristics and particular situation. Options: type_risk = c("Low", "Medium", "High", "Default") (cf. table 218, page 168, CNAIM, 2017). A setting of "Default" equals a setting of "Medium".

location_risk

String. Proximity to areas that may affect its likelihood of trespass or interference. Options: location_risk = c("Low", "Medium", "High", "Default") (cf. table 218, page 168, CNAIM, 2017). A setting of "Default" equals a setting of "Medium".

prox_water

Numeric. Specify the proximity to a water course in meters. A setting of "Default" will result in a proximity factor of 1. Thus assume the proximity to a water course is between 80m and 120m (cf. table 223, page 172, CNAIM, 2017).

bunded

String. Options: bunded = c("Yes", "No", "Default"). A setting of "Default" will result in a bunding factor of 1.

no_customers

Numeric. The numner of customers fed by an individual asset.

kva_per_customer

Numeric. If the asset have an exceptionally high demand per customer type in kVA per customer. A setting of "Default" results in a multiplication factor of 1 (cf. table 18, page 86, CNAIM, 2017).

Value

Numeric. Consequences of failure for a 6.6/11 kV transformer.
