# The ampacity tables presented here are for rectangular bus bars of Copper No.

110 whose surface condition is similar to that of busses at
typical installations. Ampacities were calculated using a nominal conductivity of 99% IACS and should also be applicable to other
coppers with the same electrical conductivity. Listed for 60 Hz at temperature rises of 30, 60, and 65 C° ambient, they ere determined
from accurate emissivity coefficients measured by calorimetriC° techniques. The methods are described in "Electrical Coils and
Conductors", by H.B. Dwight (McGraw-Hill Publishing Co., New York, 1945, Chapter 19).
Ampacity Calculations - Accurate emissivity is essential because it is used to calculate the heat dissipated by radiation, a factor in the
general equation for ampacity:

where I is ampacity (amp), WR is heat dissipated by radiation (watts), WC is heat dissipated by natural convection (watts), and R is
resistance (ohms) at operating temperature and 60 Hz.

Table 1. Ampacities of Copper No. 110 Bus Bars - Ampacities in this table are for bus bars having an emissivity of 0.4.
This was observed on samples exposed for 60 days in an industrial environment, and it is probably identical to that of bus bars in
service.
Direct-current ampacities may differ from AC° ampacities because of AC° skin effect:

where I DC° is DC° ampacity at 60 Hz (amp), and S is the skin effect ratio at 60 Hz.
