    There is something wrong with the cable data – it’s impossible 3 different type cables with same Conductor Area, same matherial, to have 3 different Resistance (ohm/km).
    Example – look first 3 cable types – PVC flexible, PVC insulated and XLPE insulated, for the same Conductor area (by example 1cX6), both Copper, resistance for the fist is 3.3ohm/km, for the second is 3,69ohm/km and the third is 1.53ohm/km.
    May be the last one uses a super copper, twice better than first 2 :)

    dear sir
    I want to submit the formulas of cable sizing to those persons which are searching here and there.I appreciate of your current website which are publishing my cable sizing ideas.I am submiting another voltage drop and cable sizing formula.

    1- Vd = 1.732 x I X L X PF/ (Area mm2 x conductivity of copper) ———-FORMULA 1
    2- Area(mm2) = 1.732 x I X LX PF/(Vd x conductivity of copper) ———–FORMULA 2

    WHERE:-
    1.732 FOR THREE PHASE.
    2 FOR SINGLE PHASE.
    I = LOAD CURRENT.
    L= LENGTH OF CABLE.
    PF= POWER FACTOR.
    Vd= VOLTAGE DROP.
    CONDUCTIVITY OF COPPER AT 90 DEG.C = 41.66
    CONDUCTIVITY OF ALUMINUM AT 90 DEG.C =25.64

    DATA:-
    1.732 FOR THREE PHASE.
    I = 160 AMPS.
    L= 200 METERS.
    PF= 0.85

    FIRSTLY WE CALCULATE THE VOLTAGE DROP.
    Vd = 1.732 x 160 x 200 x 0.85/(70 mm2 x 41.66)
    = 16.1547 volts —————(1) for copper conductor.
    Area(mm2)b= 1.732 x 160 x 200 x 0.85/(16.1547 x 41.66)
    = 70 mm2 ———-(2) for copper conductor.

    if you want to use Aluminum conductor, apply conductivity of Akuminum which is above said.ABOVE CALCULATIONS ONLY FOR THREE PHASE.

    calc is wrong.Diff cable size should apear for Al & Cu.
