Quick question. Has anyone created an Excel spreadsheet to calculate
extension cord gauge requirements?
A friend of mine asked what size extension cords to get for his generator
and I of course I said "it depends." Not being an electrician or an EE, I
pointed him to the formulas on eHow and showed him how to create a
spreadsheet (attached) that would calculate what extension cord gauge is
Before he goes out and buys extension cords based on what the spreadsheet
says, I told him to hold-off until I could at least ask some other people
to double-check the spreadsheet theory and answers. If you have a moment,
let me know what you think of the spreadsheet results. Also, would be
interested in knowing if there is a better spreadsheet/calculator for this.
Thanks in advance,
