i’m planning a 12s3p build using lg hg2 cells. these cells have continuous discharge rating of 20amp, and 3000mah capacity.
in 3p, continous disrchage will be 60amp with a 9ah capacity, bringing C rating to 6.7 (right?).
i have some 22awg bare bus wire but have concerns that it won’t be thick enough to carry the amp output of each cell.
looking up wire gauge current ratings, 22awg seems to be rated at 7amps. i know current capacity varies based on temperature but this should be a decent indicator.
i think the question answers itself, but it seems i should use 16awg to be able to carry the 20amp continous discharge these cells are capable of producing, right? is there some nuance i’m missing? also, would it be possible to coil this 22awg wire to double its carrying capacity?
