“More cable costs less!”

Energy efficiency of cable and wiring installations

So long, standards, electrical codes and other instructions used to read as if they stated as the prime selection and design criterion: “How hot must my cable least run?” From now on, however, a cable should no longer be considered “best used” if the maximum permissible operating temperature is really reached. Due to the lower losses, a larger cross section would save energy and hence real money. This shall be explained in detail and comprehensively below.
