    minimum number of cables required to safely ground transformer

    4/0 grounded cable is rated at 43kA for 15cycles. What is the minimum number of cables per phase required to safely ground a 2500kVA 5.75%Z transformer on the 480V side?

    A-1
    B-2
    C-3
    D-4

    Looking for help on this. XFMR fault current is 52,297 on the 480V side assuming 3phase? my guess is 2 cables per phase.

    480*1.732 = 831.36
    2500000 / 831.36 = 3007.12
    3007.12 / 0.0575 = 52297

    Wouldn't you need to know some more information about the system (i.e. what is the upstream protective device and clearing time, etc.)?
