Defining Feeder Conductors and Branch Circuit Conductors
Background: Issam, a Electrician from Riyadh – KSA

Question: Dear Electrician ..

As per ASHRAE Standard allows a maximum voltage drop of 2% for feeder conductors and 3% for branch circuit conductors. Can you please help me to define the Feeder conductors and the branch circuit conductors.

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Issam.

Feeders Conductors are the conductors used to provide the power to the Electrical Service Panel.
Branch Conductors are the Circuits that provide power from the circuit breakers that are installed in the Service Panel which provide power to the Loads or Devices being powered from the Electrical Service Panel.
