Am I going to have a problem with voltage drop or heat?
Hi, first post in a while, need some help from any electricians on board.
I have an outdoor building 12x12. It has been converted to an outdoor kitchen. There is a sub panel fed by a 60amp breaker and 6AWG copper THHW conductors(4) in PVC conduit from my main panel in our house, 160' away. Now all of a sudden I have the following loads:
8000 BTU window AC (new unit) 7amps
1 stand mixers 2.7 amps
one small drink cooler/fridge thing 2.5amps
a small microwave that would only be used on occasion
and now a 16amp electric oven (240Vac)
For a total of approx 40 amps not figuring any LRC on the AC and fridge.
Best I can tell voltage drop for 6AWG at 60 amps for that distance would be a shade over 3%
Is this going to work OK?
