Cable and wire sizing calculator NEC
This will affect the derating of the cables. And that the raceways, cables and buried conductors are spaced according to NEC to prenet derating. 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. Typically only one cable.
Thanks; that gives me a good resource. The impedance is calculated icex I think the curves are from ICEA. I take this to say PVC thermoplastic has the same damage temperature, no matter what the continuous rating is. The customer asked me to put cable damage curves on the TCCs.
I suppose using 90C cont.
Number of parallel conductors: Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. On low voltage circuits the let-through current is typically used, i. 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.
If you are limited by fault current capacity, XHHW might be a good choice. The maximum allowable voltage drop. Close this window and log in. I half-finished a sentence in my last post. The current rating is based on the insulation type. Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate.
Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework. The three phase AC voltage drop is calculated as: The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. If you’re planning to load V cables up to their 90 deg C ratings, better take another look. This method calculates the impedance for the worse case power factor, i. Resources Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors.
More than one cable may be selected for high load scenarios. Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. On high voltage circuits the prospective fault current is typically used i.
Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Furthermore, high voltage circuit breakers typically do not limit the fault current.

This indicates a downside to using 90C cable. To apply a manual derating, divide the load by the derating factor from NEC, and enter the new load value in the calculator.
Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. For higher temperatures, a derating will have to be applied according to NEC.
This is not considered in this version of the calculator. 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 Code NEC 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 p-32-38 assume the cable cools off in the distance distance between the exit from the conduit and the point where it reaches the breaker.
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. If ucea 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. I dug up the buff book and it says the same thing.

The current rating is selected from Table The estimated cable or wire length in meters of feet Short p32-382 current and time kA, ms: This only applies to thermoplastic insulation. I don’t think I’ve seen a minimum length specified anywhere.
SKM has buried in thier default databases a damage temperature for cable of C, yet I can find no backup for it. The values in Table 9 is based om three single conductors in a conduit.
Ignore the neutral and earth conductor in three phase cables.
