Any building's electrical system is intended to serve the needs of the users of the building in a safe manner. However, we must work within constraints such as for our geography, regulations, best practices, and most importantly, the system we employ below:
This page provides a "living document" of the Omni Commons electrical system. It is not necessarily completely accurate, though it strives to be, and is always important to get updated! Also see our [[power usage]], [[floorplans]], [[Media:Panel Diagram.pdf|old breaker diagram]], and [[cancelled panels]].


==System==
3 of these panels are Federal Pacific Electric and need to be replaced ASAP: [[#Panel A|A]], [[#Panel AB|AB]], [[#Panel BA|BA]]


* Label the main electrical panel as '''"main"'''
* '''[[#Main Panel|Main Panel]]''' (in ANV office, room E of rear [48th St] exit)
* Label the direct sub-panels of the main panel with a branch letter, e.g. "A", "B".
** '''[[#Panel A|Panel A]]''' (adjacent to main in ANV office)
* Label each sub-panel that is connected to a first-tier sub-panel of the main panel.
*** '''[[#Panel AB|Panel AB]]''' (in basement next to N staircase)
** '''"level number"''' + '''"origin panel letter"''' + '''"breaker number"'''
*** '''[[#Panel AD|Panel AD]]''' (located upstage left in N corner of W wall of ballroom)
*** e.g. '''"1A2"''' for the first-layer sub-panel from the '''2nd''' breaker on panel '''"A"'''
*** '''[[#Panel AE|Panel AE]]''' (located in storage room S of stage in N corner of W wall of ballroom)
*** e.g. '''"2A3"''' for the second-layer sub-panel from the '''3rd''' breaker on panel '''"1A"''' aka '''"1A2"'''
** '''[[#Panel B|Panel B]]''' (in Crow's Nest above stage in ballroom)
* For each circuit, label each outlet, switch, and load with:
*** '''[[#Panel BA|Panel BA]]''' (in rear ballroom balcony near S wall)
** the appropriate sub-panel name
***** '''[[#Panel BAAA|Panel BAAA]]''' (behind Entrance Hall counter on S wall)
*** e.g. All the outlets in one room that are on the same circuit may be named '''"3C4"''' meaning the cruit is on breaker '''4''' on panel '''3C''', on branch '''C''' from the '''main''' panel.
** '''[[#Panel C|Panel C]]''' (in Disco Room at base of ladder to DJ booth)
** the draw on the curcuit
** '''[[#Panel D|Panel D]]''' (in ANV office on E wall shared with Entrance Hall)
*** e.g. '''20 amps'''
* '''CCL Panel''' - (Located next to door into CCL / sudo room area) - Apparently not yet documented here?

In 2019 we added another circuit to this box to power lights & outlets in the secure storage closet above it. In the confusion, something may have been switched around. Liblens briefly lost power. Needs to be re-assessed and re-labeled.

There is a wire in this box that comes from the other side of the wall, in a junction box 5' off the ground covered with a 2 gang Plastic Blank Wall Plate which is joined to wires assumed to go to outlets lower on that wall. But since we didn't see the expected result when we hooked it up, it's not connected right now. Also there are no available circuits left in this box. That wire is labeled inside this panel.
