On the basis of determination of sizes of the real critical sections S<sub>Ci</sub> for the indicated wires and cables the calculation numeral estimation of critical amplitudes of density δ<sub>Ci</sub> of SC current i<sub>k</sub>(t) is executed with set ATP in current-carrying parts of investigated CCP of power circuits of the examined electrical equipment. It is determined that in the power circuits of electric equipment of the general industrial installations (for permanent time of slump of T<sub>a</sub>=50 ms of аperiodic to the constituent of current of SC) critical amplitudes of density δ<sub>Ci</sub> of SC current i<sub>k</sub>(t) at time of his disconnecting t<sub>k</sub>=100 ms in copper (aluminum) cores for the uninsulated wires and insulated wires (cables) with copper (aluminum) cores (shells), PVH, R and PET it is numeral made an insulation according to approximately 1,57 (1,18) kA/mm<sup>2</sup>. At time of disconnecting t<sub>k</sub>=160 ms of SC current i<sub>k</sub>(t) in the power circuits of the examined electrical equipment (T<sub>a</sub>=50 ms) critical amplitudes of density δ<sub>Ci</sub> of SC current i<sub>k</sub>(t) for the copper (aluminum) cores (shells) of indicated CCP become accordingly numeral equal approximately 1,33 (0,99) kA/mm<sup>2</sup>. <strong>Originality.</strong> First by a calculation way taking into account information for ATP of SC current i<sub>k</sub>(t) and quantitative values of time of his disconnecting t<sub>k</sub> in the power circuits of electrical equipment of the general industrial installations the numerical values of critical sections S<sub>Ci</sub> and critical amplitudes of density δ<sub>Ci</sub> of AC SC current i<sub>k</sub>(t) are certain for the uninsulated wires, and also insulated wires and cables with copper (aluminum) cores (shells), PVH, R and PET insulation. <strong>Practical value.</strong> Obtained results for the critical sections S<sub>Ci</sub> and amplitudes of density δ<sub>Ci</sub> of AC SC current i<sub>k</sub>(t) of frequency 50 Hz (at the period of oscillations of T<sub>p</sub>=20 ms for of periodic constituent of emergency current of SC) can be utilized in power industry in practice at a choice thermally by a bar to the action of large SC currents i<sub>k</sub>(t) of CCP with copper (aluminum) bars (shells), intended for reliable operation in the power circuits of electrical equipment of industrial power industry.</em>}, number={5}, journal={Electrical Engineering & Electromechanics}, author={Baranov, M.
