#### Are thicker wires safer?

Bigger, which means it might not fit thru some small holes or tight places. You get diminishing returns with AC due to the skin effect. Thicker is never worse than thinner electrically, but after some diameter the extra area gives you less and less return.

What does AWG mean in wire size?

American wire gauges (AWG) are a standard set of sizes for wire conductors — the smaller the wire gauge, the larger the diameter in inches or millimeters, and vice versa. Refer to this American wire gauge conversion chart to help determine the correct wire size to order.

What are AWG tables and charts?

The AWG tables and charts are handy methods to specify the current carrying capacity of a conductor, its diameter, resistance, max current in amperes and other important parameters and characteristics.

## How do you determine the AWG of a stranded wire?

The AWG of a stranded wire is determined by the cross-sectional area of the equivalent solid conductor. Because there are also small gaps between the strands, a stranded wire will always have a slightly larger overall diameter than a solid wire with the same AWG.

### What is the cross sectional area of an N-gauge wire?

The n gauge wire’s cross sercional area A n in kilo-circular mils (kcmil) is equal to 1000 times the square wire diameter d in inches (in): A n (kcmil) = 1000×d n 2 = 0.025 in 2 × 92 (36-n)/19.5.
