18

A 480 volt three phase 50 HP motor draws 65 amps and is 600 feet away. What is the voltage drop, and what size wire should we use for a 5% voltage drop?

24volts drop maximum; 33,774cm (area circular mils; cm = ((sqrt(3) * L * I * k) / Vd); #4 AWG; k is specific resistance (k = ((R * cm) / 1000)

19

What is the voltage drop for AWG 18 stranded wire 565 feet one way in coated cable? Wire carries 20 mA of dc current. Note: Coated (wires are jacketed); uncoated (wires are not jacketed).

191mV ((Vd = ((2*L) / 1000) * I * R)

20

What is the DC voltage drop formula?

Vd = ((2 * L) / 1000) * I * R)

21

What is the AC single phase voltage drop formula?

Vd = (((2 * L) / 1000) * I * Ze); (Ze with p.f. = 100 is equal to dc = R)

22

What is the AC three phase voltage drop formula?

Vd = (((sqrt(3) * L) / 1000) * I * Ze); (Ze with p.f. = 100 is equal to dc = R); (Note: ((2 * L) / 1000) * I * Ze * Cos30) = (((2 * L) / 1000) * I * Ze * (sqrt(3) / 2)) = (((sqrt(3) * L) / 1000) * I * Ze)
