The Circuit Load Analysis Module is the main (hub) module and is supported both by and from other Volts modules. Devices, conductors, raceway types,
ambient and terminal temperatures and distances are characterized in the upper section then posted into the lower worksheet grid.
Volts features the ability to analyze any power distribution system up to 35,000 volts, AC or DC, no matter its simplicity or complexity.
This is inclusive of any conductor or cable type and fiber optics.
Volts features the most accurate computing formulae available.
All entered items automatically comply to IEEE Standards 141, 241, 242 and NEC® specifications. All devices' and panels' voltage drop
and real power values are automatically adjusted with any upper level panel addition. Conduits and cable tray sizes are automatically
sized. Panel OCPDs' and buss ratings are automatically sized and computed. Transformers are automatically sized, etc, etc. Every entry is automatically
checked, adjusted and sized.
Volts also features a powerful array of editing tools to accommodate for dynamic changes with all other items and reports automatically updated in response
to the change. Additionally, Volts presents analytical and informative information about all entered items validating its computed values.
This module utilizes all 34 NEC® 310 ampacity tables for its conductor sizing computations along with all other
IEEE and NEC® tables and specifications regarding:
Voltage drop with
conductor resistance / impedance accumulation carry-over
Conduit and cable tray sizing
Motor & transformer primary and secondary protection sizing
and fuse sizing
Cables in conduit, free air or buried
Neher-McGrath ambient temperature and environmental conditions ampacity derating
Ability to edit, insert or delete any entered item with all ancillary Volts modules
automatically updated to the modification.
Ability to post repetitive devices from the user defined Items Database
Ability to apply and save all specific project notes, diagrams and photos with Volts Notes
and much more...
Volts also supports the following:
AC and DC systems
Voltages up to 35,000
50 and 60 Hertz systems
AWG, mm² and Mexico NOM
SAE and metric linear units
ºF or ºC
Panel sizing per balanced or phase load
Single or double pole protection for 230v devices
With a familiar spreadsheet style interface, devices, transformers, conduits, cable trays and panels are entered into the
module's database and displayed into the worksheet under user defined column headers. The information column headers include:
Percent Voltage Drop
Distance & Unit
Ambient Temperature & Unit
Kilovolt Amps (rated)
# Parallel Conductors
Kilovolt Amps (actual)
# Neutral Conductors
Applied NEC® Table
OCPD Protection Type
Although there is a tremendous amount of generated information and user defined options, the use of
the circuit load analysis is very easy and very complete. Volts' circuit load analysis is the most thorough, most accurate and most
complete circuit load analysis program available!
Once a panel has been defined and entered into the worksheet, all of Volts' comprehensive reports are
available. The contents and completeness of these reports can be viewed in a PDF format from the Reports Summary page.
