Multiple cables lying too close or on top of each other dissipate less heat Welding cable size is measured by the American Wire Gauge AWG standard AWG sizes will have three numbers for example " 2 AWG /30 " This means that the welding cable has a total cross sectional area of 2 AWG and is made from strands of 30 AWG wire Steps to Find the Diameter First – find the exponent in the equation by subtracting the wire gauge from 36 then dividing by 39 Finding the exponent for 00 and gauge wire is slightly different Substitute 1 2 and 3 for the gauge in the formula above instead of the AWG value Second – find 92 to the power calculated in the
