This cable size represents the minimum size required to satisfy the short-circuit temperature rise requirements. Table 10 Columns 8 and 9 22 10 Nzw 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 13 completely surrounded by thermal Table 10 insulati on.

Cables for alternating voltages up to and including 0. Sharp bends should be avoided because the longitudinal forces are translated into radial pressures at bends in the cable route and these may damage thermoplastic components of the cable such as insulation and sheaths. In the preparation of this Standard, reference was made to IEC and acknowledgment is made of the assistance received from that source. Method D would nzw operating at near maximum load.

Where the soil is known to be of poor quality and has a thermal resistivity greater than 1. Permission may be conditional on an appropriate royalty payment.

This derating factor is necessary because of the desire to limit the maximum permissible temperature rise under overload conditions. Where the measurements are made while the cables are loaded, e. Note that these methods result in approximately the same answer.

Where the type of cable or method of installation is not specifically covered in the tables of this Standard, current-carrying capacities obtained from alternative specifications such as ERA Report may be employed. 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: However, care must be taken that the cable environment and means of support can withstand the higher temperatures.


The higher operating temperature achieved by grouping will not affect the mineral insulation of the unserved cable. For thermoplastic insulating materials the limits must be applied with caution when the cables are either directly buried or securely clamped when in air. Current-carrying capacities are not given in this Standard for polyethylene served or other forms of MIMS cable used for heating purposes, such ns trace heating, tank heating or floor warming.

The contents of the Standard nzx a development of the limited provision of Appendix B to AS and it is expected that over subsequent revisions of ASAppendix B will be modified and reduced in size and reference made to this Standard. Specific conditions of installation are laid down in Clauses 3. Some information on the diversity of certain loads may be obtained from the determination of maximum demand in AS Consideration should also be given to the voltage drop at this operating temperature.

However, with experience it will become apparent that the different nature of installations will determine which of the requirements predominate. Help Center Find aw research papers in: If possible the actual value should be measured nsz the cable route as it can greatly affect the current-carrying capacity of the cable.

See Appendix B for recommended circuit configurations for the installation of single-core cables in parallel. Determine which single-phase voltage drop values will apply when the cable is operating Licensed to BGC Cemtech on 25 Aug 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 The relative importance of these different factors for a particular installation will, in general, determine the cable arrangement selected.

Where different materials or installation conditions are used such that the rate of heat dissipation is adversely or favourably affected, lower or higher current-carrying capacities may be 3008 respectively. The current-carrying capacities of served cables may be 1.


The following two types of material have a worst-case or dried-out thermal resistivity in the order of 1. The generalized form of the adiabatic temperature rise equation which is applicable to any starting temperature is as follows: However, in doing so the following factors which may determine the system to be selected are highlighted: In parallel circuits of single core cables, electrically asymmetric arrangements give rise to unequal load sharing and consequently the heating effects in some cables can be substantially greater than in a single circuit.

Az will be noted that the influence of skin effect on resistance has been taken into account in the specification of cable resistance values in Tables 34 to 39 and as such are referred to as values of a.

However, for thin screens the adiabatic method indicates much higher temperature rises than actually occur in practice and 308 must be used xs some discretion. Different methods of installation vary the rate at 33008 the heat generated by the current flow is dissipated to the surrounding medium. Suggestions for improvements to Joint Standards, addressed to the head office of either Standards Australia or Standards New Zealand, are welcomed.

This Standard Part 1. It has therefore been decided in these cases to leave the values previously assigned in the edition of this Standard even though in some cases these appear to be higher than would normally be justified.

Electrical installations— Selection of cables Part 1. Such factors will invariably determine the minimum current requirements for the application of this Standard. Where other ambient temperatures apply, the appropriate rating factors shall be as given in Table
