Conductor sizes

When looking for properties of a conductor, or trying to match a conductor with one in the Poles ‘n’ Wires database, you need to be able to interpret the description you have for the cable. An example is the conductor labelled 19/.128 AAC. If you can’t find the properties for a cable with .128 in

Sag errors in high temperature lines

With the need for increased load capacity on existing lines, it is economically attractive to run a line at a higher temperature than originally designed. A higher operational temperature allows for a higher current. This approach avoids the need to buy new conductor or to strengthen or replace existing poles. However, running a line at
