So :D , you have on CCU 32 Amps type B MCB which feed a 3 phase+n isolator BS 88 fuse 32Amps, thru 3x4mm single core conductors(phase,neutral,earth)...
From isolator is connected a ring final circuit thru 2.5mm conductors
You must test this circuit and complet the test of schedule results
:?:
Any remarks :?: :?: :?:

The CCU is TP+N,main switch is 100Amps BS 60947, untill here everything is ok :D ,on CCU u have 4 circuits,one of them is the 32 Amps type B MCB which feed a 3 phase+n isolator BS 88 fuse 32Amps, thru 3x4mm single core conductors,(phase,neutral,earth),enclosed in PVC trunking, where the phase is connected on L1,neutral to neutral bar,earth to neutral earth,(L2,L3-unused),
From TP+N isolator is connected a ring final circuit thru 2.5mm conductors as follow, the 2c2.5mm for phase ring final is connected to L1, 2c2.5mm for neutral is connected neutral bar and 2c2.5mm for earth is connected earth bar
You must test this circuit and complet the test of schedule results :?: :?: :?:

Is this your homework?

What do you mean when you say "CCU"?

Are you familiar with the term "submain"?

I'm very puzzled when you say "3 phase+n isolator BS 88 fuse 32Amps, thru 3x4mm single core conductors(phase,neutral,earth)..."
3 phases but only got P+N+E?

CCU - Consumer's Control Unit :)

Think that u have one CCU in one side and one 3P isolator in another side,
from CCU u have 3 wire which feed the 3P isolator(P+N+E),the 3P isolator have 3 fuses BS 88-32Amps,the phase is getting through one fuse of 3P isolator(lets say-L1),(L2,L3-unused),from that fuse u feed now the ring final circuit (phase),u take the neutral from neutral bar (inside of 3P isolator) and earthing from earthing bar( inside of 3P isolator)
I think that this will help u
Cheers:cool:

Surely CCU = Cooker Control Unit
CU = Consumer Unit

That's the way I was taught - or is it just me? :confused:

Well I can't argue with that...!

I might start calling it a Electricity Control Unit or ECU for short instead though. I like the sound of that. It'll also have the added amusement of really confusing and worrying any petrol heads when I tell them I'm about to connect their ECU to the mains... :eek:

(ECU = common TLA for Engine Control Unit for those who don't know ;) )

Holmslaw u right,this circuit could be taked as two circuits,or could be treated as radial at whole, if u make a note on schedule of test results about it:cool: , in special that I had readings as follow: for p-p loop 1.0 ohms, n-n 1.0 ohms, cpc-cps 1.0 ohms, and from 5 socket outlets just one had correct value, p-n and p cpc approximatly 0.52-0.51 ohms, others socket outlets fail with high values, the highest was 9.3 ohms, :idea: ATTENTION :idea: for who is taking practical assesment on C&G 2391, that inside of pvc trunking where the wires are runing they have fitted lots resistance to gave u high readings to see what u will write on PIR certificate, this happen in practical C&G 2391 PIR rig:cool:
Have anybody meet something like this in practical C&G 2391 :?:

CCU - Consumer's Control Unit :)

Term often used in 15th regs days.
When din rail fitted boards came out it was envisaged people would fit bell transformers,contactors, timers ,etc as well as mcb's within them.
This one board would replace multiple single units.
Hence Consumer Control, all located in one Unit.
CCU

OK fellas, lets forget CCU and CU, any electrician express himself in his way, give remarks at that circuit, this is the main question...

Cheers:cool:
