Ignore the neutral and earth conductor in three phase cables. The single phase AC voltage drop is calculated as: P-32–382 impedance is calculated as: I should have written, “An engineer from Southwire emailed me some pages out of the Southwire cable manual that says PVC insulation is rated only to C. For higher temperatures, a derating will have to be applied according to NEC.

On low voltage circuits the let-through current is typically used, i. On high voltage circuits the prospective fault current is typically used i.
Pp-32-382 to heat conduction in the copper, I may have a cable running at 90C all the way into the breaker, depending on whether I can assume the cable cools off in the distance distance between the exit from the conduit and the point where it reaches the breaker.

Alan “It’s always fun to do the impossible. The current rating is based on the insulation type. This is so that the cable can also handle a fault if the primary protection fails. Register now while it’s still free!
If you are limited by fault current capacity, XHHW might be a good choice. I don’t think I’ve seen a minimum length specified anywhere. And that the raceways, cables and buried conductors are spaced according to NEC to prenet derating.
ANSI – ICEA-P-32-382-1999.pdf
The short circuit capacity is calculated as: If you really plan on running the cable to 90C, your damage temperature is closer to your running temperature, and you are more likely to damage the cable during a fault. Download Now The Architecture, Engineering and Construction AEC industry is constantly looking for process improvements to better manage potential project delays and costs.
It’s easy to join and it’s free. To apply a manual derating, divide the load by the derating ica from NEC, and enter the new load value in the calculator.

The wire sizing calculator considers copper conductors only. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts.
The three phase AC voltage drop is calculated as: The wire sizing calculator uses the resistance and reactance values from the PVC conduit column in chapter 9. I take this to say PVC thermoplastic has the same damage temperature, no matter what the continuous rating is.
SKM has buried in thier default databases a damage temperature for cable of C, yet I can find no backup for it.
If cable is reaching 90C in an over-filled cable tray somewhere, my cable damage curves using 75CC will be a bit in error. Maybe it’s assumed to be sufficient if adequate wire bending space is provided per code.
It p3-2-382 done all the time. The cable and wire sizing calculator calculates the required cable icwa wire size based on current rating and voltage drop according to the American National Electricity Code NEC Thanks for pointing out the breaker termination as a limiting factor, and I have to check that I do not have some higher temp cable in the mix, such as XHHW.
Resources Few production environments have the luxury of ordering new equipment to replace existing machines on their shop floor.
Normally the terminations are rated for a maximum of 75 deg C ratings. The current rating is also based on installation method.
