    you gave too little info. Its like the man that asked a contractor for the cost to build a house. the contractor asked him how many rooms. the man replied I'll tell you after you tell me the cost.

    Isn't that asking a bit much.
    Engineers get paid to do that sort of thing.

    I looked at your bio - you are an engineer/consultant. Should we not be going to you for the information you are asking of us?

    Sit down with article 220 and work through the calculation. There are no shortcuts, there is no "ballpark" figure, start at the beginning and end at the end. Look in the back of the NEC for examples. If you do not know how to use article 220, that is way beyond what can be explained on this forum.

    You have the correct answer...you go to Article 220 and do the calculations. There is no other way.
