This section describes the options available in the General group in the Options dialog box: Display neutral wire count separately from phase wire count: Whether neutral and hot wires are listed together or separately when they are the same size.
Conduit location: Where the conduit size is displayed in the wire callout.
Homerun wire callouts: Whether the wire callout is displayed for homeruns.
Transformer voltage drop calculation method: There are three options for addressing transformers when calculating voltage drop. See the Voltage Drop and Transformers Options article in the knowledge base for more information.
Feeder voltage drop percentage limit: The maximum voltage drop percentage allowed on feeders. Voltage drop percentages above this value will be highlighted in the parameter output.
Circuit description method: Whether circuit descriptions are controlled through Design Master commands.
Include room names in circuit descriptions: Whether circuit descriptions include room names. If Circuit description method is set to Use Revit circuit descriptions, this option is ignored.
Feeder length calculation method: How the feeder lengths are calculated between distribution equipment.
Branch circuit length calculation method: How the branch circuit lengths are calculated between distribution equipment and connected devices.
Building angle: The orientation of the building used when the Feeder length calculation method or Branch circuit length calculation method is set to Right angles. See the How Building Angle Affects Calculations article in the knowledge base for more information about this setting. Output shared parameter values as uppercase: The format used for the case of default shared parameter values. User-specified values always use the text exactly as input by the user.
Feeder wire make-up length: Additional length of wire added to automatically calculated feeder lengths to represent make-up in the field. Branch circuit wire make-up length: Additional length of wire added to automatically calculated branch circuit lengths to represent make-up in the field. Add branch circuit wire make-up for each device: Whether the length specified in Branch circuit wire make-up length is added for each device on the circuit.
Calculate feeder voltage drop based upon 80% of panel capacity: The load used when calculating voltage drop on distribution equipment.
Calculate branch circuit voltage drop based upon 80% of breaker capacity: The load used when calculating voltage drop on branch circuits.
Voltage drop power factor: The power factor used when calculating voltage drop.
Ambient temperature: The ambient temperature in °C used to determine the ampacities of conductors based upon NEC 310.15(B). The recommended value for most projects is 30. |
