    Notes:
    1. DC resistances include a 1% length factor for plexing.
    2. Inductive reactance assumes the neutral is carrying current.
    3. Phase conductors assumed to be reverse lay stranded, compressed construction.
    4. Phase spacing assumes cables are touching.
    5. Resistances shown are for the phase conductor only.
    6. Ampacity based on conductor temperature of 90°; ambient temperature of 40°C; emissivity 0.9; 2 ft./sec. wind in sun.
