Voltage Drop

Creates a schedule called VOLTAGE DROP SCHEDULE and sets it to the active view. If a schedule of that name already exists, this command sets the schedule to the active view but does not otherwise modify it.

The default schedule layout is shown below. Information about the voltage drop at the upstream feeder for each piece of distribution equipment in the project is listed. The devices are ordered based upon the connections between devices in the model.

The VOLTAGE DROP column uses the DMET_VoltageDrop_Feeder shared parameter by default. This parameter displays a warning in the value for any voltage drop that exceeds 3%. To display the fault without any warnings, replace the column with the DMET_VoltageDrop_Feeder_NoWarnings shared parameter.

Once the schedule is created, you can modify it using standard Revit tools.
