Standard condition
The following conditions have been used to calculate the current rating in the catalouge

Ambient air temperature


Ground temperature

30 C

Thermal resistivity of soil(g)

Voltage drop in consumers' installations

The voltage drop between the origin of an installation and any load point should not be greater than
the values in Table X-01 expresed with respect to the value of the nominal voltage of the installation.
The calculated voltage drop should include any effects due to harmonic currents.
