* @ 68°F or 20°C; ** Results may change with real wires: different resistivity of material and number of strands in wire,
DC Vdrop / AC single phase calculation,
Vdrop (V) = Iwire (A) × Rwire (Ω) = Iwire (A) × (2 × L(ft) × Rwire (Ω/kft) / 1000(ft/kft)),
AC three phase calculation,
Vdrop (V) = 0.866 × Iwire (A) × Rwire (Ω) = 0.866 × Iwire (A) × (2 × L(ft) × Rwire (Ω/kft) / 1000(ft/kft)),
