How can we improve Design Master?

Provide automatic sizing of breakers for motors & transformers

The breaker for motors & transformers need to be manually selected. A default suggestion for the motor hp and transformer kva would save time.

    Equipment breakers are sized automatically in DM Electrical 8.0 using MCA and MOCP. You can also assign specific breaker and wire sizes for equipment in the equipment dialog, not the circuiting dialog.

    Transformer breaker sizes are currently set automatically when you change the kVA or voltage. In DM Electrical 8.1, we are adding a “Size to match kVA” option to the transformer OCP selection to make it more obvious this is happening.

    I think this covers the features in this request. If not, let me know.
