It's been a while so I'd appreciate some help. What is the difference between and the significance of MCA (minimum current ampacity) MOCP (maximum overcurrent protection) FLA (full load amps) and LRA (locked rotor amps)?
I've got a chiller with MCA, MOCP, and RLA and a ac unit eith FLA and MOCP.
I need to size an MCC with about 10 loads, and of course, provide conductors and breakers.
help! Thanks - JM
