Parallel single-core (single-conductor) cables are employed in the backbone of building distribution systems. As power consumption in buildings grows continuously, overheating problems associated with such a cable installation have become a concern. This paper investigates the current distribution among parallel single-core cables installed on metal tray in a multiphase distribution system. A general prediction method of current distribution is introduced and is validated experimentally. To… CONTINUE READING
