The note has given an overview of the contents of the standard, ways to navigate and perform the calculation and provided links to more detailed posts. The flow chart shows one recommended path for working through a cable sizing exercise in line with the standard. I 2 R ‘ The heat flow watts per unit length from the conductor is given by: Depending on the installation conditions this heat will be dissipated to the surrounding environment at a given rate. While the standard addresses each of these issues, the resulting equations are more complex do take some effort to solve.
