Abstract

Notes & some calcs on relation of conductor size to voltage drop. "It requires 1.165 times as much copper for a straight conductor as it does for a decreasing conductor to give the same fall of E.M.F." FR 477 derivation of formula for finding the beest point to run the wires to in feed a distributing wires from both ends (for straight and decreasing conductors).
