Talk:Copper wire and cable
|WikiProject Electrical engineering||(Rated B-class, High-importance)|
In overhead electrical transmission, an higher cross section increases the wind load on the cable but on the other side, it increases the surface area and therefore improves cooling, hence possibly allowing for an higher ampacity for the same cable resistance per unit length.
