Wattage is really what is needed. If you are working with DC voltage, Ohm's Law is at work. But to answer your question directly probably a #4 wire.

To answer this question the circuit's voltage needs to be stated. Then a voltage drop calculation can be made.

### Will awg 10 wire carry 30 amps for 30feet?

Yes, a #10 wire will carry 30 amps for 30 feet. If the load is rated as continuous then the wire will have to be derated to 80% capacity which will leave you with 24 workable amps. If the load demands currents higher that 24 amps then you will have to go to the next wire size up which is a #8 which is rated at 45 amps.
