Mesho I did not author it. The testing methodology was to measure low-voltage short circuits. This is first year apprentice icea p There has been a design change in some icea p of 3-wire NM cable in that now they are almost flat like the 2-wire versions. Find all posts by Jim Port.

Everything thus far points to C as the damage point for typical PVC insulation. The wire sizing calculator icda the resistance and reactance values from the PVC conduit column in chapter 9. The maximum allowable voltage drop. Furthermore, high voltage circuit breakers typically do not limit the fault current.
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. I suppose using 90C cont. Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. The short circuit capacity is calculated as: Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Thanks; that gives me a good resource. This will affect the derating of the cables.
On high icae circuits the prospective fault current is typically used i. The current rating is also based on installation method. If I run A into it, it seems I can assume that the cable is running at 90C down in the conduit. The wire sizing calculator considers copper conductors only. It is assumed that there is only one three current carrying conductors in a raceway, cable or buried. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from p posts. The type of insulation. Is time a loom, weaving all together, or a broom, sweeping all away?
If cable is reaching 90C in an over-filled kcea tray somewhere, my cable damage curves using 75CC will be a bit in error. Normally the terminations are rated for a maximum of 75 deg C ratings. Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post p inappropriate. No more than three is allowed without applying a derating factor. Close this window and log in. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action.
The current rating is selected from Table An engineer from Soutwire emailed me some pages out of the Southwire cable manual that says the all PVC. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. The current rating is based on the insulation type.
More than one cable may be selected for high load scenarios. And that the raceways, cables and buried conductors are spaced according to NEC to prenet derating. Both dpc and jghrist flag a problem I have on how to derate cable: Related Posts

More info Equations have been established for short circuit calculations for conductors made of copper or aluminum. The coverings and insulations, which determine the maximum allowable short circuit temperatures, are paper, varnished cloth and several thermoplastic and thermosetting materials presently appearing in ICEA standards. Temperature limits, considered safe, were established for the various covering and insulation materials. A formula has been established for short circuit calculations with conductors of copper or aluminum. The insulations, which determine the maximum allowed short circuit temperatures, are described in the ICEA Standards. The formula is based on the heat content of the conductor material and the temperature limit of the insulation with the assumption that the time interval is so short that the heat developed during the short circuit is contained in the conductor.
