# Limitation of AC Submarine Cable

 I know Capacitance charging current is given by the equation: Ic= 2PICE PI=3.14 approx. C = Capacitance E = Voltage How would you calculate what the maximum length of a submarine cable before losses are to great? Is there an example of this calculation? I'm trying to determine how to determine and calculate whether a AC submarine cable would be suitable for installation. Would you look at the Capacitance charging current? if so what are you comparing it with? Thank You. asked 4/3/2012 Mjomah6

 Although capacitance has its effects inductance and resistance too will have their impact on VD. Refer cable manufacturer's cataloque answered 5/16/2012 naban 6
