If you are testing Voltage drop for less than 8 Strings use String 1 then String 2 and so on.
Can be used as a Single String Planing Tool by putting Zeros in Panel Amps for String 2 and String 8.
Keep your voltage drop % as low as posable and as even as posable for each string in the array.
You may change the wire temp by using the letter (c) for Celsius or (f) for Fahrenheit in cell (B3). 60 deg. Celsius wo
To use Wire Size 1/0, 2/0, 3/0, 4/0 you will need to use the Caps letter O not zero. 1/0=O 2/0=OO 3/0=OOO or 4/0=
Max wire size is 4/0 (OOOO) and Min wire size is 40 gage.
When entering wire length use round trip length.
Use at your own risk! Users accept responsibility for the use of these said calculations knowing there could
be verified by other means. Creators of this Voltage Drop Calculator accepts Zero Responsibility for Good
