Although influence of temperature on electrical equipment performance can be understood intuitively, and most of electrical engineers are aware of it, some relations and potential consequences are sometimes neglected.

Special attention will be given to these relations, and they will be shown in examples.

Content table:

  1. About heating and temperature in electrical engineering
  2. How temperature is affecting electrical equipment
    1. Rated values
    2. Current carrying capacities
    3. Life span of the equipment
    4. Other influences
