Abstract

Finite Volume Method (FVM) is chosen to calculate the heat transfer field and the heat generation with in the cable and heat dissipation in the surrounding soil of a three phase 145kV underground cable brunch that make it possible to analyze the ampacity of the cable. FLUENT as the proper software in this field is used to generate and solve the problem. Non-homogenous environment is considered for cable ampacity calculation and results are compare with homogenous environment condition.
