Current Carrying Capacity of Copper Conductors. The following table lists equations commonly used for determining various parameters of an electrical system where: While these cables are applicable to the great majority of cable installations that are on grounded systems, they may also be used on other systems for which the application of cables is acceptable, provided the above clearing requirements are met p-5-482 completely de-energizing the faulted section.
Using a mechanical clamp such as a constant tension spring or a hose clamp is usually adequate to secure the connection. Open wire lines have a high reactance. Definite rules cannot be established on a practical basis for all cases. The resultant intensity of discharge may be sufficient to cause burning of the insulation or jacket.
Register now while it’s still free! In this connection it should be remembered that the high voltage circuit should be carried as far as possible so that the secondary runs, where most of the voltage drop occurs, will be small. The reactances shown are for Hertz operation. This may be improved by using parallel circuits but is much further reduced by using p-45-428 cable.
General Calculations Excerpt from PRYSMIAN`S WIRE AND CABLE
The formula you picked up from P is destined for: Voltage regulation is often the limiting factor in the choice of either conductor or type of insulation. Special consideration should be given to cables when installed in magnetic ducts. This combination will ensure a permanent low resistance, which will maintain contact even if the solder melts. Documents Flashcards Grammar checker. The reduction occurs because XLPE allows much higher transient short-circuit operating temperatures.
Wires applied either helically, as a braid or serving; or longitudinally with corrugations. Where safety to personnel is involved. Consult p–45-482 cable manufacturer for insulation thicknesses. From the attached sketch one may calculate the resistance as following: P-455-482 in this category may be applied in situations where the clearing time requirements of the percent level category cannot be met, and yet there is adequate assurance that the faulted section will be de-energized in a time not exceeding one hour.
The tape may be conducting compound, fibrous tape faced or filled with conducting compound, or conducting fibrous tape. It is recommended that the shield be grounded at cable terminations and at splices and taps. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members! While resulting in slightly higher reactances than three cables in a non-magnetic duct, it p45-482 optimal relative to the alternative of a single cable in a magnetic duct.

An insulation shield has a number of functions: Since the result is in terms of area, it seems you need the resistivity of the tape shield to derive the resistance.
The shield should operate at or near ground potential at all times. Students Click Here Join Us! The ground may be a metallic conduit, a damp non-metallic conduit or a metallic binding tape or rings on an aerial cable, a Industrial Drive Lexington, South Carolina Phone: Their use is recommended also for resonant grounded systems.
For example, the effective area of a composite shield consisting of a helically applied tape and a wire serving would be the sum of the areas calculated from Formula 2 or 3 and Formula 1. It is accomplished by means of strand and insulation shields. The system short circuit capacity, the conductor cross-sectional area and the circuit breaker opening time should be such that these maximum allowable short circuit currents are not exceeded.
I came up with 7. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts.
Download Now White Paper: The wire or strap used to connect the cable p-4-5482 ground connection to the permanent ground must be of adequate size to carry the fault current.
To confine the dielectric field within the cable. Stress cones should be made at all shield terminations.

Frequent grounding of shields reduces the possibility of open sections on nonmetallic covered cable. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. It accommodates various spacing of the conductors and other unique parameters as indicated within the nomogram itself. If the surface of the cable is separated from ground by a thin layer of air and the air gap is subjected to a voltage stress, which exceeds the dielectric strength of air, a discharge will occur, causing ozone formation.
Use of Insulation Shielding The use of shielding involves consideration of installation and operating conditions. To limit radio interference. The cable vendor, Prysmian, provided all the relevant cable data, including a shield resistance of
