How the cable size for a motor is decided

current, current rating of motor but only one guy stated

i think guy who stated about voltage drop,current rating,
power rating of motor( because starting current varies
with Hp rating of motor lower the hp higher the staring
current) his answer is more regionable than others.

from my experince i would say only full load current rating
of motor & voltage drop of motor will be enough to
calculate the cable size because staring current is only
for less time. and all cable has been designed for 2-3
times of rated current for 1 min. this answer will be
perfect for higher rated motor( more than 50hp)

less than 50 hp motor we have take consideration of
sttarting current( because starting current 3-4 times of
is

I have a small system with two motors that are running on 380 vac, 60 hz. These motors are expensive and I usally get them from Brazil. I am adding another motor to the system, but I want to purchase a 480 vac, 60 hz motor to use. It will be on a VFD that is rated fro 380 thru 480. Is this posible and will I have to use a larger motor and derate it?
