Such issues are the result of project complexity, size, uniqueness and regulation, as well as the need for virtual team collaboration.
The three phase AC voltage drop is calculated as: Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. The cable and wire sizing calculator calculates the required cable or wire size based on current rating and voltage drop according to the American National Electricity Lcea NEC I take this to say PVC thermoplastic has the same damage temperature, no matter what the continuous rating is.
Normally the terminations are rated for a maximum of 75 deg C ratings.
The customer asked me to put cable damage curves on the Icwa. Ignore the neutral and earth conductor in three phase cables.
If you really plan on running the cable to 90C, your damage temperature is closer to your running temperature, and you are p-322-382 likely to damage the cable during a fault. This is not considered in this version of the calculator. It’s easy to join and it’s free. This indicates a downside to using 90C cable.

Resources Few production environments have the luxury of ordering new equipment to replace existing machines on p-32-328 shop floor. If I run A into it, it seems I can assume that the cable is running at 90C down in the conduit.
Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Load kW, kVA, A, hp: I suppose using 90C cont. 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.
This will affect the derating of the cables. Due 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.
Students Click Here Join Us! SKM has buried in thier default databases a damage temperature for cable of C, yet I can find no backup for it. Is time a loom, weaving all together, or a broom, sweeping all away?
The wire sizing calculator considers copper conductors only. Register now while it’s still free! It is rare in NEC land that you can legally load V conductors up to their 90 deg C ampacity, for a variety of reasons. Maybe it’s assumed to be sufficient if adequate wire bending space is provided per code. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members! ice
Number of parallel conductors: Thanks; that gives me a good resource. I don’t think I’ve seen a minimum length specified anywhere. Thanks to everyone; I consider my question answered. The important part is to select the correct temperature rating. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. The short circuit capacity is calculated as: Close this window and log in. Are you an Engineering professional?
This method calculates the -p32-382 for the worse case power factor, i. Few production environments have the luxury of ordering new equipment to replace existing machines on their shop floor. Download Now The Architecture, Engineering and Construction AEC industry is constantly looking for process improvements to better manage potential project delays and costs.
The values in Table 9 is based om three single conductors in a conduit. No more than three is allowed without applying a derating factor. If I derate the entire cable down from A down to A, I can assume the cable runs at 75C down in the conduit, and hence the breaker is not at risk of seeing hot conductors.
On low voltage circuits the let-through current is typically used, i. This is so that the cable can also handle a fault if the primary protection fails. The current rating is selected from Table This only applies to thermoplastic insulation.
I dug up the buff book and it says the same thing. And that the raceways, cables and buried conductors are spaced according to NEC to prenet derating. There is absolutely no problem in using 90 deg C insulation at 75 deg C ampacity. The short circuit current and clearing time for the protection device. More than one cable may be selected for high load scenarios.
For higher temperatures, a derating will have to ixea applied p-32-32 to NEC.
