Feeder Length Calculation

The feeder length between distribution equipment can either be directly input by the user or calculated based upon the location of the distribution equipment on the drawing.

Feeder length can be calculated using two methods:

Right Angles: Length is based upon the distance using right angles between the two devices. The angle can be changed by the user.
Straight Line: Length is based upon the distance between the two devices along a straight line.

When the length is calculated, the difference in elevation is included based upon the alignment point area elevation or floor elevation. An additional length is added to account for the wire needed to make the connection to the distribution equipment. The user can specify this value using the Extra distance added to feeder length option. See the Options->Distribution Equipment section for more information on how to set this value.
