Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 May 1995
Status: active
Page Count: 24
ICS Code (Cables): 29.060.20
scope:

The method described in this International Standard is applicable to any type of cable and group running horizontally, provided that the cables are of equal diameter and emit equal losses.

Information is provided on the reduction in permissible current when cables are mounted adjacent to each other. It is limited to the following cases:

a) a maximum of nine cables in a square formation, see figure 1, and

b) a maximum of six circuits each comprised of three cables mounted in trefoil, with up to three circuits placed side by side or two circuits placed one above the other, see figure 2.

Caution is advised where air flow around the cables may be restricted by proximity to neighbouring objects.

NOTE - Further work is to be done to extend and refine the data and to include the effect of dielectric loss.
