Just looking at the calcs for my kitchen cabling to the 16th edition (don't
ask, I know we're in 17th territory now).
The wording in the on site guide I am referring to is a little unclear.
In appendix 6 there is a value to be calculated (lt) given as ln/CaCiCrCg.
The text in the OSG states that the tabulated value of current carrying
capacity is given by the above formula.
What I think it should say is that the tabulated value (generally given in
Table 6E1) must exceed the value calculated from the aove formula.
Can anyone provide informed opinion on this please?
