- The effects that the ambient conditions, seasonal load fluctuation and installation factors have on the temperatures measured inside enclosures
- Determining he normal operating temperature range inside electrical enclosures across North America.
- The generalized model provides an acceptable predictor for determining enclosure temperature.
- Further research is suggested to further refine the understanding of the normal temperature range for enclosures.
