Showing Voltage Drop on First Panel

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

To show a voltage drop value other than 0% on the first panel in a project, follow these instructions:

  1. Create an extra panel using the Panels command.
    • Ribbon: DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment->  Panels
    • Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment->Panels
  2. Press the Schedule and Length Settings button and uncheck the Show in Voltage Drop Schedule checkbox.
    • If the new panel will not be used elsewhere in the project, you should uncheck all of the Show in… checkboxes.
  3. Connect the first panel to the new panel using the Connect Distribution Equipment command.
    • Ribbon: DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment->  Connect Distribution Equipment
    • Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment->Connect Distribution Equipment

You can then adjust the settings on the first panel as needed to calculate the voltage drop.
