Trying to wrap my head around this one...

When calc voltage drop, should I always use the available load (rated panel) or just use my calc load - what I'm gonna install. I've gotten into with electrical engineers before.

What do you guys/girls think?

If you size to calculated load only, that may have dramatic effects on certain loads when motor loads start. Just something to keep in mind. Calculated load plus 225% of largest motor load might give better service.
