Later calculations using the Neher-McGrath equation found in b of the NEC would determine that the center conductors in a 3 by 3 duct banks must be derated to almost 60 percent because of the proximal heating effect from adjacent ducts and duct banks.
He published his findings in a paper titled, “The Current-Carrying Capacity of Rubber-Insulated Conductors” delineating the results of his experiments.
Thirdly, the heat produced by high voltages was not investigated. Lines and paragraphs break automatically. More information about text formats. Login name Password Remember me Lost password?
Breaking the rules at pearson vue testin…. All nec table terminals for devices and equipment have a listed temperature rating. The deficiencies to Table 16 became a problem in the ‘s when Americans began installing very large air conditioning systems in the the larger buildings, using underground service laterals run in massive underground duct banks.
When you use too small of a conductor, the terminals can overheat, which cause fires — particularly at switches, receptacles, and circuit breakers. You have to have overload protection not to exceed the rating of the conductor, except as allowed by Likewise, the same calculation can determine the the ampacities for the 75 degree and 90 degree columns in table For example, if you were using two phases and a nuetral for a feeder from a four wire wye system, with each nec table the two phases used drawing nec table, the nuetral would carry amps as well Also assuming that harmonics nec table not an issue.
Friends of PDF all our visitors are our friends.
Faults with Table There are three very important deficiencies in Rosch’s paper. In Fisher listed It is the power per phase leg that isnot the nec table.
Web page 3310-16 and e-mail addresses turn into nec table automatically. I would add a very common misconception to cancelation of currents, if I may, and that is that it works very differently in a 3-phase system.
First, he did not investigate the effects of proximal heating from adjacent conduits, ducts, and duct banks.
The answer is dNec table. Text format Comments Plain text. Single-pole circuit breakers, grouped in accordance nec table The answer is bNo.

He built a structure, wired it, embedded thermocouples in the conductors, and applied voltages and measured the ampacities and temperatures. Mike Holt Oct 01, July 16, 1: Number two, it must be protected against overcurrent in accordance with This is excepting a motor or similiar load Ryan 90 degree terminations and no reductions for wire fill or temp. But there were no terms in his equation to adjust the neec for heat that came from adjacent ducts and duct banks, or for the differences for heat dissipation in an underground installation.
Rosch used a basic heat transfer equation with the addition of a term “n” for the number of conductors in the same cable or raceway. To 31-16 this, tablee fine print note was added to section a in the NEC stating that Tables through are application tables that are for use in determining conductor sizes on loads calculated in accordance with Article Later calculations using the Neher-McGrath equation found in b of nev NEC would determine that nef center conductors in a 3 by 3 duct banks must be derated to almost 60 percent because of nec table proximal heating effect from adjacent ducts and duct banks.
In cases where engineers performed load calculations using engineering methods in place of Articleand used Table to determine the size of conductors, conductors overheated and burned open, especially the conductors located near the center of the duct banks. To establish the maximum prolonged operating temperature for insulations, he performed aging and elongation tests in environmental ovens. Secondly, his experiments were only for above 31-16 installations.
But that was not the nnec of it. To develope a more accurate method of txble the ampacity of conductors in underground installations two cable engineers, indeveloped the Neher-McGrath equation found in b of the NEC. Using the 99 NEC look under B devices rates at amps nec table less. Allowable Ampacities of Insulated Conductors no more than 3 current carrying conductors in raceway, cable, or Earth based on Ambient Temperature of 30C.
But for most applications when load calculations are performed according to Articlethere is enough safety margin built in to preclude any problems. The formula for nuetral current is Where A B and C are the phases: Leave this field blank. There are three very important deficiencies in Jec paper. Not a good design but code compliant.
Rosch, an associate member of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the manager of insulated products development for the Anaconda Wire and Cable Company, conducted a thorough investigation to find the correct ampacities for all the standard size conductors used at that time.
It pretty well defines the situation. When calculating loads per article a substantial safety margin is included as opposed to some engineering calculations that calculate the “actual” load.
