Aerial Ampacity Calculations and the NEC Code Page 1 of 6 [Next] Introduction The deficiencies of the Code in trying to provide ampacities for what is essentially an infinite number of possible underground cable system arrangements are apparent. However, one would think that the limited number of possible aerial cable applications are well covered by the Code Tables. While in some ways this is true, there are still some significant issues with the Code treatment of ampacity ratings for aerial systems, in particular for 02000 Volt systems.
The remainder of this paper examines the above points in more detail.
