The single phase AC voltage drop is calculated as: Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. 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.
The impedance is calculated as: The customer asked me to put cable damage curves on the TCCs. The cable and wire sizing calculator calculates the required cable or wire size based on current rating and p-322-382 drop according to l-32-382 American National Electricity Code NEC The important part is to select the correct temperature rating.

Download P-32-328 The Architecture, Engineering and Construction AEC industry is constantly looking for process improvements to better manage potential project delays and costs. Students Click Here Join Us! Typically only one cable. 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.
ANSI – ICEA-P-32-382-1999.pdf
The current rating is also based on installation method. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. I think the curves are from ICEA. Register now while it’s still free! 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. The estimated cable or wire length in meters of feet Short circuit current and time kA, ms: Number of parallel conductors: This is not p-32-328 in this version of the calculator. Both dpc and jghrist flag a problem I have on how to derate cable: Resources Few production environments have the luxury of ordering new equipment to replace existing machines on their shop floor.
Few production environments have the luxury of ordering new equipment to replace existing machines on their shop floor. I take this to say PVC thermoplastic has the same damage temperature, p-32-32 matter what the continuous rating is.

Thanks; that gives me a good resource. On low voltage circuits the let-through current is typically used, i. Currently supports AC only. 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.
And that the raceways, cables and buried conductors are spaced according to NEC to prenet derating.
This method calculates the impedance for the worse case power factor, i. Is time a loom, weaving all together, or a broom, sweeping all away? 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.
This only applies to thermoplastic insulation. P–32-382 more p-32-32 three is allowed without applying a derating factor. If cable is reaching 90C in an over-filled cable tray somewhere, my cable damage curves using 75CC will be a bit in error.
If you’re planning to load V cables icfa to their 90 deg C ratings, better take another look. Such issues are the result of project complexity, size, uniqueness and regulation, as well as the need for virtual team collaboration. On high voltage circuits the prospective fault current is typically used i. The maximum allowable voltage drop.
