When i use hand range calculator option in equilab and type in wanted minimum equity i get ranges with significantly more equity than i wanted
f.e when i put 10% range and minimum equity of 50% i get TT+, AQ+ as a result, which actually have 60.2% equity vs 10% range.
What am i doing wrong?

I don't think you're doing anything wrong.

I noticed this quite a while ago, and I merely assumed that it was Equilab giving you an "edge".

For example:

Equity     Win     Tie
MP2    39.76%  37.83%   1.93% { 44+, ATs+, KQs, QJs, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s, ATo+, KQo }
BB     60.24%  58.31%   1.93% { 88+, AQs+, AQo+ }

If I'm being picky, I just add or remove combos until I get something closer:

Equity     Win     Tie
MP2    48.26%  46.28%   1.98% { 44+, ATs+, KQs, QJs, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s, ATo+, KQo }
BB     51.74%  49.75%   1.98% { 22+, ATs+, ATo+ }

I think it's just a quirk of Equilab...

no no no ... this totally wrong :\

The handrange calculator determines the range in which every single hand (!) has the given minimum equity ... not the whole range.

Thanks, nopi...

That does make sense.

I tested that idea with this range:
TT+,ATs+,KJs+,ATo+,KQo

The handrange calculator returned :
Hand range with equity greater than 53.00 %:
JJ+
AQs+
AKo

The worst hand in that range is AQs, which showed:

Equity     Win     Tie
MP2    45.71%  39.74%   5.97% { TT+, ATs+, KJs+, ATo+, KQo }
MP3    54.29%  48.31%   5.97% { AQs }

I tried a couple more after that, and the results proved you right -- ALL hands in the range have the equity desired or better.

Did you figure this out on your own, or is it written somewhere I haven't found yet?

Thanks!

Nice work!
I guess that qualifies as "figured it out on your own"

Thanks for letting us know...
