Calculating Voltage Drop
Posted on 11/15/21 4:12 PM
Calculating Voltage Drop is Critical in the Application of your Electrical design. Using longer cord lengths in your electrical design may become problematic enough to pose potential dangers. When cable length is 50 feet or longer, voltage drop in cable occurs—the resistance in the copper measured per foot—causing heat buildup.
