as far as voltage wiresize is not figured on wattage it is figured on amps. No matter what voltage you are using the wire size is per amps. your wire size will also figure in for start current and pf of the motor, as well as distance from the panel. No matter how short the distance from the panel use the wire size in your chart. Calculate the wire size if over the distance limit.
