When developing the planning concept of a power supply system it is necessary not only to consider the standards and specifications in force but also to clarify the correlations between economy and technology. Electrical equipment such as distribution boards and transformers must be dimensioned and selected so that they represent an optimum in their entirety and not just individually.

All components must be sufficiently dimensioned for the loads which arise in the event of a fault as well as during operation at rated values. Other decisive points to be considered when drawing up the power concept are:

1,The type, utilization and shape of building (e.g. high-rise, flat-roof and number of storeys)
2,Determination of load centers and selection of possible supply routes and locations for transformers and main distribution boards.
3,Specifications and requirements imposed by the building authorities.
4,Requirements imposed by power supply companies.

The result will never be a single solution but several versions which must be assessed with regard to their technical and economic implications. The following requirements are paramount in this connection:

Easy and clear-cut planning
Long endurance
High availability
Low fire load
Flexible adaption to changes within the buildings
In most applications these requirements are easily met by the use of suitable busbar trunking systems rather than the cable installation method is being used more and more often by engineering offices for the conveyance and distribution of power.
