P2776 - Guide for Specifying and Selecting Cables for Nuclear Facilities

The purpose of this guide is to provide the user with cable designs and applications that are common in the nuclear industry. It is intended as a tool for the new as well as the more seasoned engineer. In this capacity, it contains single-point references and a cross-reference list of standards as they apply to the wire and cable industry. It provides application guidelines for the various cable types as they relate to electrical, mechanical, physical, and thermal properties and with consideration for their environments. The use of this guide should help to eliminate premature cable failure due to improper specification and selection.Guidance is provided on the specification and selection of electrical power, control, instrumentation, and special-purpose cable, as typically used in nuclear facilities. This guide is not intended to be a design document, although many of the problems associated with the specification and selection of cable for nuclear facility applications can be avoided by the use of this guide. It is recognized that there may be other types of cable used in nuclear facilities. This guide should not be interpreted as precluding the use of such cables.
