Conduit Fill

Only the tan cells need be modified

INSTRUCTIONS
Enter the desired maximum percentge conduit fill permitted for this design.
Enter the number of conductors of each size in the conduit.
Read the calculated fill in square inches in the green cell.
Compare the calculated fill to the max fill in the table for the conduit size and type desired, and if the
table entry is larger than the calculated value, the design is acceptable.

This calculation assumes an unbalanced load, with phase and neutral conductors of the same
size.
VOLTAGE DROP CALCULATOR FORMULA
VD = (2)x(A)x(LxR)/1000
Where:
VD = Voltage Drop (Volts) per unit circuit length
A = Full Load Current (Amps)
L = One-Way Circuit Length (ft)
R = Resistance (Ohms/Kft)
