Hi guys,

With the formula kVA = I V for 1 phase, would the V be 120 or 240? Thank you all for reading.

Hi I apologize guys,

I have another question, but I don't want to clutter the forum. If there was a voltage drop of 20V on a 3ph line of 347/600, is the voltage at the service 327V or 580V, or both? Thanks you for reading.

Hi Bob,

How can I know when to pick the line to line or line to n?

Update: I guess it can be chosen by if we want the max or not?

Methinks you are not an electrician...

If you are, you need to go back to basics.

I am not an electrician, but I work with them, and I realized through experience you guys know the answers to most things obvious and not. So I thought I could get some help on this.

the kva applies to the equipment that it applies to. In other words, a piece of equip using 240v x N amps would be using 240*N va. if the equip was using 120, it would be 120 x N va. it's that simple.

what are you trying to understand about voltage drop (can you phrase the question so what it is you don't understand is obvious ?)
