How can we improve Design Master?

add a panel based demand factor for devices

Under Design Master Electrical Options=>Miscellaneous=>Custom Load Type=>Calculation Method, add a fourth option which is call “Panel Based” which would still have a default demand factor. Then when we go in to circuit a device with that demand factor name we will circuit it to the default demand. However, as we move up to upstream panels and see that device circuited already, we can change the demand factor in the circuit panel which is typically dimmed. This will solve the problem we have of dealing with Trailer parks, docks, Ranges, Dryers, and other devices that have different demands as you move up the feeder.

        Sorry, was a little vague, See Demand Table 555.12 and Table 551.73. The problem you might get a demand for 4 on the circuit panel and then 16 for the Feeder panel and the 64 for the Service. Would like to just go to that panel and change the demand accordingly for the number on that panel.
