Could anybody help me to understand the connection between harmonics and voltage drop in multi-core cables. I understand that voltage drop is directly proportional to the load current and length and inversely proportional to the cross sectional area of the cable.
Will the additional...
Hello Can I just confirm that if 90 degree cable is used in switch gear that is only ratted at 70 degrees then you use the 70 degree tables to find the maximum current carrying capacity in this case Table 4D1A
I ask this as I carried out an EICR and found 4mm 6491B cable run in trunking...
Looking into doing a BEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering after I finish my level 3 studying, but noticing vast differences in course materials between what you will get from distance learning and what I'd get doing it at a university (not an option for me).

what's the best way to do this with manufactured bends thanks
and what do i need to link the trunking with(for continuity)thanks
How do you form steel trunking and tray to follow the contours of a circular room ,i.e in a circle.
The trunking and tray will be suspended from the ceiling on a trapeze of unistrut
good luck on answering this one,cheers:eek:
ElectriciansForums.net (formerly known as ElectriciansForums.co.uk) was setup in April 2006 to provide free electrical advice to both professional and DIY electricians. Whether seeking advice for auto electrics, trying to find electrical installation condition reports (EICR) form downloads, or whether you're here just to talk to other electricians; we've been a first-choice website for tens of thousands of sparkies for well over a decade.
