CALCULATION OF VOLTAGE REGULATION AND I<superscript>2</superscript>R LOSSWhen a circuit supplies current to a load, it experiences a drop in voltage and a dissipation of energy in the form of heat. In dc circuits, voltage drop is equal to current in amperes multiplied by the resistance of the conductors, V = IR. In ac circuits, voltage drop is a function of load current and power factor and the resistance and reactance of the conductors. Heating is caused by conductor losses; for both dc and ac circuits they are computed as the square of current multiplied by conductor resistance in ohms. Watts = I2
