|Thanks. My load analysis has me below 20a at night vfr and also ifr. After some hot starts especially those that take longer than usual I have seen as high as 45a on my primary alt. Have flown this way for over 2 yrs. Do not see any real issues. Was just wondering why Bob picked 16awg instead of 14 on z12. |
The 'rule of thumb . . . or wire" for fusible
links suggest a link conductor 4AWG or more smaller
than the protected line. To me sure, a 10AWG wire
would enjoy protection with 14AWG link . . . but
at 20A, the 16AWG wire isn't breaking a sweat either.
