Which is the correct way to measure the conductor gap?
Based on Figure 5 of IEEE 1584-2002 seems that it correspond to:
- Bus bar center line spacing
- Gap between buses and back wall of box

And what about distance between cables and MCC boxes?

I always thought conductor gap was just that...edge to edge. What we'd really like is arc length but since this is so hard to predict they settled for conductor gap, measured edge-to-edge.
