How To Calculate lighting circuits According To Australian electrical standards

Lighting circuits are fundamentally much different than that of the other electrical circuitry in any electrical network. Lighting circuits are often networked in a series connection with switches and circuit-breakers. In an electrical network lighting circuit cable sizes matter a lot as they pass the same current through a series of lights in the network.

Lighting circuits are installed as per the conventional standards as per the supply voltages from the power source. This is the reason why it is essential to maintain Australian electrical standards during installation of lighting circuits in Australia or New Zealand.

Lighting circuit cable sizes
• The cable sizes vary a lot depending upon the nature of current that need to handle for illuminating the light bulbs. If it’s a high wattage bulb, the cable sizes need to be thicker than usual to allow more current to pass through easily. Also the circuit resistance to the flow of current results in hot wires and this is the reason why every lighting circuit cable sizes has to match with the utility resources attached in appropriate manner.
