Short Circuit Rating

It happens frequently that the conductor size necessary for an installation is dictated by its ability to carry short-circuit current rather than sustained current. During a short –circuit, there is a sudden inrush of current for a few cycles followed by a steadier flow of current for a short period until the protection switchgear operators, normally between 0.1-0.3 seconds
