This presentation provides a fundamental review of the factors impacting the ampacity of underground power cables and a discussion on how the maximum ampacity of a power cable may be calculated. Utilities have maximized the value of their capital plant by rigorously calculating the maximum ampacity of installed facilities. The foundation of calculating ampacity of power cables is the IEEE paper “The Calculation of the Temperature Rise and Load Capability of Cable Systems” written by J. H. Neher and M. H. McGrath. Through the years refinements in the calculation of some of the variables have been made and numerical methods have been developed for the use of computer simulations, however the Neher – McGrath paper still remains the basis upon which all cable rating is done.
A large number of variables impact the ultimate ampacity of an underground system. Some of these variables are part of the design while others are environmentally specific. This presentation will not repeat the rigorous mathematics presented in the Neher – McGrath paper but will focus on the practical matter of reviewing the factors that impact the ampere rating of cable systems and the steps that can be taken to maximize the ampacity of underground power cables. Carefully evaluating the factors that limit the ampacity of underground cable systems and taking the proper engineering measures, will allow the engineer to maximize the value of the installed plant.
Presenter: Harry E. Hackman, Jr. P.E. – Manager of Engineering
Mr. Hackman has over 37 years’ experience in the engineering and design of electric utility substations and facilities. He has extensive experience in the writing of specifications, review and evaluation of proposals, and supervision of the design and construction of substations. His background includes training substation mechanics in maintenance procedures, and the development and use of database tools to manage substation assets. Mr. Hackman holds a BS in Electrical Engineering from Grove City College. He is a registered professional engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

The IEEE Power & Energy Society Scholarship Plus Initiative (IEEE PES S+) recently announced scholarship distribution to 184 students at 95 universities across the United States for the 2014–15 academic year. The following students were selected from schools within the Columbus Section.
Jamison Arline, Ohio State University, 2015
Benjamin McCray, Ohio State University, 2015
David Scherer, Ohio State University, 2015
Mary Scherer, Ohio State University, 2017
Matthew Wolfe, Ohio State University, 2016
The IEEE PES Scholarship Plus Initiative provides multi-year scholarships to qualifying US & Canadian electrical engineering undergraduate students. Scholars receive up to three years of funding—US$2,000 the first year, US$2,000 the second year, and US$3,000 the third year—interspersed with up to two years of valuable, hands-on career experience.
The program, made possible by donations to the IEEE Power & Energy Society Scholarship Fund of the IEEE Foundation and the IEEE Canadian Foundation, is in its fourth year. Since 2011, 733 scholarships have been distributed to 466 individuals from universities across the US & Canada. Find out how this program is helping address the problem of the shortage of engineers in the Power & Energy Industry by viewing our promotional video/ or visit the IEEE PES Scholarship Plus website.
