This paper presents the computation of the cable ampacity and the temperature distribution through long duration based on the equivalent thermal circuit based on IEC 60287 standard and the Finite element method using COMSOL (Multiphysics environment, version 5.5). This study investigated the cable ampacity and the temperature rise of the cable core and sheath at steady state and emergency conditions. The cable ampacity was investigated at different conditions such as the variation of cable depth, soil properties, and soil temperature. The results confirmed the adaptation between the thermal circuit results and the COMSOL results as well as the effectiveness of using the numerical method to compute the cable ampacity. Using the COMSOL-based thermal properties evaluations, the transient performance of the cable is ascertained. The transient study is performed for different cable loading currents and dry zone sizes.
