What will be the voltage drop in an underground cable 3 core X 185sq mm copper 3000 meters long carrying 200 amps at 13.8 kv 60 hz
at the end point ?

without the cable data like its per km impedence , it would be difficult to guesstimate ( because it cannot be calculate ) the drop. Once imedence/km is known it can be calulated
