What is the maximum earth fault loop impedance Zs for the Tesys GV7? What values are taken into consideration to calculate the Zs values?

The charts below detail the Earth Loop impedance (Zs) for the GV7 range for any TN system based on the British Standard BS7671:2008+A3:2015

Two documents are also attached:
1) Sheet with Zs charts of Tesys motor circuit breakers:
  • Tesys GV2
  • Tesys GV3
  • Tesys GV4
  • Tesys GV7
  • Tesys U
2) Explaination of the calculation of the maximum Earth Loop Impedancee
This also includes additional information about:
  • Motor Rated devices
  • Ambient Temperature
