1. Is there any reason I CANNOT run DC power over this 6/3 cable in a solar power application? Use would be just over 100' total from PV combiner box via buried/conduit through service entrance then inside to charge controller. Load would be 30 Amps at 24 volts.

Answer: 
You are going to realize about a 10.3% loss over 100 feet one way. For your charge controller to properly sense it needs no more that a 5% loss over run one way. Using 1 AWG will get you to 3.2%. You could, theoretically, place 2 conductors in parallel and that will get you to 5%. Theoretically. Actual application goes against NEC. UF-B grade wire does not need a conduit. If you could up your PV voltage Read More

You could, theoretically, place 2 conductors in parallel and that will get you to 5%. Theoretically. Actual application goes against NEC. UF-B grade wire does not need a conduit. If you could up your PV voltage to 48VDC using 6 AWG will get you right at 5%. Are you sure about 30ADC? that sounds like 95% efficiency on a PV panel... Read Less

Answer: 
6/3 uf is sized approx. 1.2" for fill consideration. It technically depends on type of conduit (rigid, PVC, FMC, etc) you are using but generally speaking you need at least 1.5". I would suggest the largest you are willing to pay for though since UF is a bear to pull through conduit.

Answer: 
250 feet of 6 gauge wire is about 0.1 ohms, so it would drop about 3 volts at 30 amps.
