Note, in the cited paper, it was not specified whether the reported starter power losses corresponded to FVNR or full voltage reversing (FVR) starters and whether a fusible switch or breaker was used.
Panelboard.sub.power loss] = Main [Breaker.sub.loss] + Enclosure Bus [Bar.sub.loss] + [Breakers.sub.loss] + Fusible [Switches.sub.loss] + NEMA FVNR Motor [Starters.sub.loss] (17)
The panelboard has a main breaker that feeds the secondary branch devices which consist of five breakers, three fusible switches, and three FVNR motor starters.

The FVNR motor starter load currents are calculated from
The FVNR motor starter load currents designated as [I.sub.1], [I.sub.2], and [I.sub.3] are determined in Table 9.
Determination of FVNR Motor Starter Load Currents NEMA 1 FVNR motor starter [I.sub.1] = 16.4 amps NEMA 2 FVNR motor starter [I.sub.2] = 26.4 amps NEMA 3 FVNR motor starter [I.sub.3] = 44.3 amps The main branch load current, I in amps, is found using Equation 14.
