Dear

pls provide the voltage drop calculations for cables in SI units. To meet the voltage drop requirement how to calculate the voltage drop using 2 or more cables in parallel. specially when distance is more than 1000 meters.

for example distance 1500 meters- Current is 160Amps recomended cable is 240mm2 - voltage drop limit is 5%

one cable of 240mm2 can not meet the requirement so more than 2 cables have to be used - I assume that if voltage drop with one cable is about 12% then the voltage drop using 2 cables will be 12/2 = 6 % and using three cables in parallel voltage drop will be 12/3 = 4%

pls comment
