    I know there’s the adiabatic equation to work earth size but generally if you install a twin and earth cable for distribution, do you need to worry about the smaller cpc size

    My situation is 20 metre 10mm t and e run and not using it to provide earth bonding. Will the 4mm cpc be adequate. 50A mcb not many circuits to feed.

    Can you clarify what you mean by this? Earthing and bonding are completely different things, and "earth bonding" does not exist.

    Will the 4mm in the t and e suffice.

    Won’t be used for water and gas bond

    So it's just being used as a cpc then?

    Apply the adiabatic calculation to verify its adequacy then.

    Yes you do need to worry about it, whether it be a final or distribution circuit.

    The term ‘sub main’ suggests a distribution circuit.

    Yes I saw that, my point was that the same consideration needs to be given to both types of circuit.
