Mike Holt Voltage Drop Calculations

1. Branch Circuits – This FPN recommends that branch circuit conductors be sized to prevent a maximum voltage drop of 3%. The maximum total voltage drop for a combination of both branch circuit and feeder should not exceed 5%. [210-19(a) FPN No. 4], Figure 2. 2.

UL 508A | Branch & Feeder Circuit | Definition Branch and ...

A basic branch circuit is made up of conductors extending from the final overcurrent protective device to the load. Some branch circuits originate at safety switches (disconnects), but most originate at a panelboard. Feeder Circuit: The conductors between the service equipment and the branch-circuit overcurrent devices are called feeders.

NEC Rules on Outside Branch Circuits and Feeders | EC&M

 · To determine if outdoor conductors are service conductors, identify where the electric utility service point is, and review the Art. 100 definitions for feeders, branch circuits, and service conductors. If they''re service conductors, use Art. 230. Otherwise, use Art. 225, which covers outside feeders and branch circuits (Fig. 1). Fig. 1.

When Can I Use 90°C Conductor Ampacity for Feeders?
