All 3-core cables require fillers to fill the space between insulated cores and the belt insulation or a sheath. The equations given in IEC 287 and in the Neher-McGrath paper (1957) for the internal thermal resistance of 3-core cables were developed for paper insulated cables. For such cables, it was assumed that the insulation and filler materials have the same thermal resistivities. In reality, in 3-core cables a variety of materials are used as fillers. The majority of these will have a higher thermal resistivity than the insulation. In the previous paper, a new formula was developed to compute the value of the internal thermal resistance of belted cables taking into account the thermal resistivity of the filler. In this paper, screened cables are considered and a new formula for the computation of the internal thermal resistance of such cables is presented. The effect of filler resistivity on cable ampacity is also discussed
