The ampacity tables presented here are for rectangular bus bars of Copper No.

110 whose surface condition is similar to that of busses at


typical installations. Ampacities were calculated using a nominal conductivity of 99% IACS and should also be applicable to other
coppers with the same electrical conductivity. Listed for 60 Hz at temperature rises of 30, 60, and 65 C ambient, they ere determined
from accurate emissivity coefficients measured by calorimetriC techniques. The methods are described in "Electrical Coils and
Conductors", by H.B. Dwight (McGraw-Hill Publishing Co., New York, 1945, Chapter 19).
Ampacity Calculations - Accurate emissivity is essential because it is used to calculate the heat dissipated by radiation, a factor in the
general equation for ampacity:

where I is ampacity (amp), WR is heat dissipated by radiation (watts), WC is heat dissipated by natural convection (watts), and R is
resistance (ohms) at operating temperature and 60 Hz.

Table 1. Ampacities of Copper No. 110 Bus Bars - Ampacities in this table are for bus bars having an emissivity of 0.4.
This was observed on samples exposed for 60 days in an industrial environment, and it is probably identical to that of bus bars in
service.
Direct-current ampacities may differ from AC ampacities because of AC skin effect:

where I DC is DC ampacity at 60 Hz (amp), and S is the skin effect ratio at 60 Hz.

Calculating Motor Speed:

A squirrel cage induction motor is a constant speed device. It cannot operate for any length of time at speeds below those shown on
To Calculate the speed of a induction motor , apply this formula:
Srpm = 120 x F
P
Srpm = synchronous revolutions per minute.
120 = constant
F
= supply frequency (in cycles/sec)
P
= number of motor winding poles
Example: What is the synchronous of a motor having 4 poles connected to a 60 hz power supply?
Srpm = 120 x F
P
Srpm = 120 x 60
4
Srpm = 7200
4
Srpm = 1800 rpm

Calculating Braking Torque:


Full-load motor torque is calculated to determine the required braking torque of a motor.
To Determine braking torque of a motor, apply this formula:
T = 5252 x HP
rpm

T
= full-load motor torque (in lb-ft)
5252 = constant (33,000 divided by 3.14 x 2 = 5252)
HP = motor horsepower
rpm = speed of motor shaft
Example: What is the braking torque of a 60 HP, 240V motor rotating at 1725 rpm?
T = 5252 x HP
rpm
T = 5252 x 60
1725
T = 315,120
1725
T = 182.7 lb-ft

Calculating Work:

Work is applying a force over a distance. Force is any cause that changes the position, motion, direction, or shape of an object. Wo
To calculate the amount of work produced, apply this formula:
W=FxD
W = work (in lb-ft)
F = force (in lb)
D = distance (in ft)

Example: How much work is required to carry a 25 lb bag of groceries vertically from street level to the 4th floor of a building 30' ab
W=FxD
W = 25 x 30
W = 750 -lb

Calculating Torque:

Torque is the force that produces rotation. It causes an object to rotate. Torque consist of a force acting on
To calculate torque, apply this formula:
T=FxD
T = torque (in lb-ft)
F = force (in lb)
D = distance (in ft)
Example: What is the torque produced by a 60 lb force pushing on a 3' lever arm?
T=FxD
T = 60 x 3
T = 180 lb ft

Calculating Full-load Torque:

Full-load torque is the torque to produce the rated power at full speed of the motor. The amount of torque a
To calculate motor full-load torque, apply this formula:
T = HP x 5252
rpm
T = torque (in lb-ft)
HP = horsepower
5252 = constant
rpm = revolutions per minute
Example: What is the FLT (Full-load torque) of a 30HP motor operating at 1725 rpm?
T = HP x 5252
rpm
T = 30 x 5252
1725
T = 157,560
1725
T = 91.34 lb-ft

Calculating Horsepower:

Electrical power is rated in horsepower or watts. A horsepower is a unit of power equal to 746 watts or 33,0
Horsepower is used to measure the energy produced by an electric motor while doing work.

To calculate the horsepower of a motor when current and efficiency, and voltage are known, apply t
HP = V x I x Eff
746
HP = horsepower
V = voltage
I = curent (amps)
Eff. = efficiency
Example: What is the horsepower of a 230v motor pulling 4 amps and having 82% efficiency?
HP = V x I x Eff
746
HP = 230 x 4 x .82
746
HP = 754.4
746
HP = 1 Hp

efficiency / HP = horsepower / V = volts / A = amps / PF = power factor

To calculate the horsepower of a motor when the speed and torque are known, apply this formula:
HP = rpm x T(torque)
5252(constant)
Example: What is the horsepower of a 1725 rpm motor with a FLT 3.1 lb-ft?
HP = rpm x T
5252
HP = 1725 x 3.1
5252
HP = 5347.5
5252
HP = 1 hp

Calculating Synchronous Speed:

AC motors are considered constant speed motors. This is because the synchronous speed of an induction
To calculate synchronous speed of an induction motor, apply this formula:
rpmsyn = 120 x f
Np
rpmsyn = synchronous speed (in rpm)
f
= supply frequency in (cycles/sec)
Np
= number of motor poles
Example: What is the synchronous speed of a four pole motor operating at 50 hz.?
rpmsyn = 120 x f
Np
rpmsyn = 120 x 50
