Loads on Circuits Do Not Appear in Panel Total

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Q: I have connected devices to circuits on my panel. Why do the loads not appear in the totals at the bottom of the panel?

A: Go to the panel and press the Feeder and Service Calculation Settings button. Check the setting of the Default General Lighting Circuit Value field.

If it is set to Yes, then all your circuits are considered general lighting circuits. The load on these circuits is ignored in the panel total. It is assumed the load on these circuits is included in the general lighting load for the panel.

Change the value to No. For circuits that do have lights, change the General Lighting Circuit field in the Circuiting dialog to Yes for those specific circuits. Leave all your other circuits set to Default.
