Refer to Table 51 for values of constant K. The nz quoted are based on average hardness grades of PVC and some adjustment may be necessary for other grades, especially those compounded for improved low-temperature properties.

Where cables are buried directly in the ground, or must be restrained by frequent fixing, then provision should be made to accommodate the resulting longitudinal forces on terminations and joint boxes.

Where applicable, divide the value of current determined by Step a by the derating factor so determined. An examination of the derating factors for groups of multicore cables on perforated trays given in Table 24 would indicate that a factor of 0.

Where other ambient nz apply, the appropriate rating factors shall be as given in Table Table 10 Columns 8 and 9 22 10 Three-core Table 12 cables Columns 10 and 11 Table 13 Columns 8 and 9 11 Two-core Table 9 Enclosed or unenclosed cables cables Columns 12 and 308 completely surrounded by thermal Table 10 insulati on. For the purpose of determining the maximum voltage drop value in Clause 4. From the derating factors of Table 26 1 for groups of underground enclosures, it can be shown that four trefoil groups of single-way underground ducts, each group representing a circuit of mm2 conductors, as illustrated, are required.

Permission may be conditional on an appropriate royalty payment. Tables 2 12 22 3 and 2 4 provide guidance to the installation methods hzs derating factors applicable to the common elastomer or thermoplastic-insulated cables. Attention is drawn to tables of rated current-carrying capacity where the standard installation conditions of Clause 3.


Remember me on this computer. The derating factors have been determined from the hottest cable in the group and assume that all cables are of the same thermal grade of insulation.

308 rating factors are based on the assumption that the effective thermal resistivity of the ground is constant from a depth of 0. It was published on 5 February These temperatures are for materials where ax is no electrical or other requirements necessary, i. However, care must be taken that the cable environment and means of support can withstand the higher temperatures. Note that these methods result in approximately the same answer.

In most instances the loading on all cables in the group will not occur simultaneously and as a result actual factors may vary from those in Tables 22 to Cables for alternating voltages up to and including 0.

Therefore the actual volt drop in a cable is obtained by multiplying the cable impedance value by the length of cable and the current as follows: The objective of the Standard is to specify current-carrying capacity, voltage drop and short-circuit temperature rise of cables, to provide a method of selection for those types mzs electric cables and methods of installation which are in common use at working voltages up to and including 0.

Local pressure due to clamping or the use of an installation radius less than 8 times the cable outside diameter, especially for cables that are rigidly restrained, can lead to high deforming forces under short-circuit conditions. The work carried out by Dr V. Maximum Maximum Minimum 308 Ratio of actual Length load current to Fc cable size carrying capacity max. Three criteria are given for cable selection, as follows: In many installations, groups of cables comprise a mixture of loaded and sa cables at any one time and the designer may justify the use of alternative derating factors to those specified in Tables 22 to 26, if the connected loads have a known diversity.

The parameters for calculating current ratings in PVC conduits in IEC are still under consideration ns considerable disparity was noted between values calculated using available parameters and those previously published in the edition of this Standard as well as other International Standards.


Where cables are consistently operating substantially below the limiting temperature of Table 1, the heat losses I 2R and voltage drop IZ will also be reduced. Cables may be operated in that temperature range when incorporated as equipment wiring and not exposed to mechanical damage, e.

However, the cables are generally installed in areas of high ambient temperature, such as equipment wiring, and it will be necessary to apply an appropriate temperature correction factor from Table As an alternative to the use of the relatively conservative values given in Table 17, advice may be sought from cable manufacturers. The voltage drop per phase to neutral is the voltage drop in one cable and the voltage drop between phases is therefore—.

From the derating factors of Table 22, which vary according to the number of enclosed circuits, it can be shown that five parallel circuits of mm2 conductors, as illustrated, are required. In addition the values for bare conductors are based on black weathered conductors and the values of insulated conductors are based on the use of black PVC.
