Generator Load Calculations

Calculate generator loads correctly, mostly by being able to specify that certain loads should not be included in the generator load.

        Funny I was just thinking how most of my generator and generator panel load calcs are never accurate. That is because for most residential and many commercial generators there are load shedding devices that are connected by relays that will turn items off when on generator. The solution is to create an additional check box next to the load type called "Load Shed". Then on the one-line device set up you would include an "exclude load shed loads in the calculations" check box. I would say yes on the generator, ATS, and Generator panels. Problem solved!
