Paralleled Cables?. - 02/02/05 10:02 PM

Guys,

How do you go about calculating the Current-carrying capacity of two cables when they are parallled up?.

I'm trying to work out the CCC of two 90mm2 PVC Sheathed Aluminium cables.

I've forgotten how the formula goes and I'm pretty sure that the CCC is not double the single cable rating, but is a definite percentage.

Can anyone help?.
