2-1/2 ton AC - 208y/120 1phase 23.3A MOCP-35
RLA Compressor 18.0A, FLA Condenser 0.8A, FLA Evaporator 2.5A, MCA 23.3A
((18.0*1.25%=22.5A+0.8A+2.5A)=25.8 * 208) = 5366.4 VA
1A) Is this the correct load calc for this configuration?
1B) If this were installed on AB, would the load be as follows?
PH-A 2683.2 VA
PH-B 2683.2 VA
1C) What size ckt. breaker would be acceptable if a 2-pole 35A is not available?
2) Automatic Clothes Washer
Rated at 120V/8A Automatic Washer - (8A*120V) = 960VA
2A) Should this be rated at 1500 VA, or can the name plate rating 960VA be used on the panel schedule/load calcs?
2B) In either case (#2A) should the VA be multiplied by 125% for LCL?
3) Automatic Clothes Dryer
Rated at 120V/12A Automatic Washer - (12A*120V)=1440VA
3A) Should this be rated at 1500 VA, or can the name plate rating 1440VA be used on the panel schedule/load calcs?
3B) In either case (#3A) should the VA be multiplied by 125% for LCL?
4) Emergency Lighting
4A) Are emergency lighting & exit signs considered part of the general lighting load?
4B) Is there a good VA number to use for emergency lights, exit lights, & combination emergency/exit lights?
5) 2'x4' Recessed Fluorescent Lights (4-tube)
5A) What is a good rule of thumb for calculating the ballast load?
