    You may want to review the National Electrical Code. Article 310 deals with ampacity of conductors and cables for general wiring . :rolleyes:

    You must have some sort of electrical instalation and practise manual that is used by electricians to do installations to conform with the regulations. Every country has a rule book like that and it gives you the ratings and the way to calculate the ratings of all cables under all conditions. You can not use the ratings that apply to Canada for instance, in your country, because of the different rules which are quite often based on average temperature and the quality of the cable insulation. This varies greatly from country to country.
