the main is 120/208v, 3phase and so are the panels. what do i need to look at? pls give example. thank you guys.
Well they do it with a program to calculate you need more info like feeder lengths wire size and if its copper or alu.
You need to tell us if its rigid conduit or alum or pvc or emt or underground or overhead the length is it parallel or a single run .
Next is this to be series rated or what 100 percent rating ?
Its kinda ohms law but just a little more info like the fault current of that transformer feeding the main panel needs to be known also ? lots of stuff there is a program you can get check out the web HANDBOOK OF ELECTRICAL POWER CALCULATION .
