I was looking in the australian standards and their voltage formula is as follows:

Vdrop = (sqrt(3) * I(line) * Distance * Z(cable))/1000

V(% drop) = Vdrop/400

What I want to know is, why are they multiplying by sqrt(3), when you already have the line value Current. I thought sqrt(3) was only used to convert between phase/line values of current or voltage in delta/star configurations. The motor has a delta winding and I'm running 4C (3C+E) out to it.

From what I understand it should be:

Vdrop = I(line) * Distance * Z(cable)

So;

Vdrop = (75 * 350 * .2) / 1000

Vdrop = 5.25V

V(%) = (Vdrop/V) * 100

V(%) = (5.25 / 400) *100

V(%) = 1.31%

Thanks
