How To Calculate Cable Inductance and Capacitance Parameters

09/26/2017 5:36 PM

Based on this file from ABB, We can get the capacitance and inductance parameters of a cable
https://library.e.abb.com/public/321b7c021cb73fefc1257a40004c237c/2012%20XLPE%20Users%20Guide_USA.pdf
I'm confused.
- Per page 21
C = Er/59/ln(r0/ri) = 2.5/59/ln(r0/ri); ro seems straight forward from Table 19 column 6 i.e. 2.14, 2.32, ..etc. How to compute ri to get 0.069, 0.079, etc? What is ri value?
- Same for inductance
L = 0.0152+ 0.061*ln(K.S/rc) mH/1000feet;
What is the arrangement in Table 19 to get the inductance? look to columns 11 & 12, What is S spacing factor used here and how the values in 0.224 & 0.122 determined in column 12 [mH/1000feet] without S value?

This document shows how the important parameters of coax cable are computed.

The dog ate my homework, did he do yours?

Thank you, James. I don’t have a dog but only a big fat cat who never eat a homework.

My cat boys are the fattest cats in the neighborhood also, and they are night cats that hang out (up to no good) in the alley, until I get up at 05:00.
