    CQD: 1/18/2019

    Re: CQD answer published Thursday, January 10, 2018 - Continuous Loads

    I'd like to just comment on the CB or OCPD rating of the feeder. The ampacity is determined by the method described, 125% of the anticipated full load. The OCPD then can be selected base on that. For feeders, the standard size value for OCPD can be rounded down from that ampacity rating, not up as required for branch circuits.

    Best regards, Nick Abbatiello
