                 effect when calculating permissible
                 short-circuit currents

    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    The approach set out in this standard is to: a) calculate the adiabatic short-circuit current, b) calculate a modifying factor that takes account of the non-adiabatic heating effect, c) multiply a) and b) to obtain permissible short-circuit current.
