There is absolutely no problem in using 90 deg C insulation at 75 deg C ampacity.

The type of insulation. If cable is reaching 90C in an over-filled cable tray somewhere, my cable damage curves using 75CC will be a bit in error. To apply a manual derating, divide the load by the derating factor from NEC, and enter the new load value in the calculator. If you really plan on running the cable to 90C, your damage temperature is closer to your running temperature, and you are more likely to damage the cable during a fault.
As dpc notes, you are often limited by terminations for continuous loading capacity. I called them on the matter yesterday, but no response yet. This indicates a downside to using 90C cable.
Cable and wire sizing calculator NEC
The cable and wire sizing calculator calculates the required cable or wire size based on current rating and voltage drop according to the American National Electricity Code NEC A is the conductor area in circular mils. This is not considered in lcea version of the calculator. Thanks; that gives me a good resource. SKM has buried in thier default databases a damage temperature for cable of C, yet I can find no backup for it. The estimated cable or wire length in meters of feet Short circuit current and time kA, ms: If you are limited by fault current capacity, XHHW might be a good p-332-382.
The current rating is based on the insulation type. The number of current carrying conductors in a raceway, cable or buried directly. How the conductors are in installed.
No more than three is allowed without applying a derating factor. The short circuit current and clearing time for the protection device. Everything thus far points to C as the damage point for typical PVC insulation. The maximum allowable voltage drop. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members!

Are you an Engineering professional? This is so that the cable can also handle a fault if the primary protection fails.

The three phase AC voltage drop is calculated as: The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. The wire sizing calculator considers copper conductors only. Ignore the neutral and earth conductor in three phase cables. This only applies to thermoplastic insulation. Load kW, kVA, A, hp: I don’t think I’ve seen a minimum length specified anywhere.

Thanks for pointing out the breaker termination as a limiting factor, and I have to check that I do not have some higher temp cable in the mix, such as XHHW. Normally the terminations are rated for a maximum of 75 deg C ratings. Typically only one cable.
