RECOMMENDED SHORT-CIRCUiT RATINGS OF HIGH VOLTAGE PVC CABLES
0. FOREWORD

0.1 This Indian Standard was adopted by the Indian Standards Institution on 13
September 1970, after the draft finalized by the Conductors and Cables Sectional
Committee had been approved by the Electrotechnical Division Council. 0.2 This standard
has been drawn up to provide to the user's general guidance on the short-circuit
ratings of high voltage heavy duty PVC sables covered by IS :1554 ( Part II )-197o*, ,

"in this standard.

the relief to armouring provided by the metallic shields over individual cores. As
mentioned in IS: 1554 ( Part 11 )-1970*, it is important to bond the shields and the
armour at every joint and termination. Further, the continuity bond between the
armourings of the two lengths involved in any joint shall have electrical cross section
not less than the combined effective electrical cross seetion of the armour and
metallic shields. *Spcei6cation for PVGinsulatcd (heavy duty) electric cables: Part 11

IS : 5819- 1970 0.6 For the purpose -of deciding whether a particular requirement of
this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the
result of a test, shall be rounded off in accordance with The number of significant
places retained in the rounded off IS : 2-1960*. value should be the same as that of
the specified value in this standard. 1. SCOPE 1.1 This standard covers the recqmmended
short-circuit ratings of high voltage heavy duty PVC cables conforming to IS : 1554 (
Part II )-1970t. 2. TEMPERATURE 2.1 The limits: short-circuit LIMITS ratings are based
on the following temperature
