Power supply rating
Thank you, Dave, for all the information on electrics. After reading your info and various posts, I still have a question, which perhaps you or someone else can answer.
My supply is 12kVa three phase. Making a quick calculation, I think I only need 6kVa. However, is it the case that if the demand isn't properly balanced across the three phases, or maybe just because it's spread across three phases, one needs a higher power rating than if it was single phase?
I think the reason I opted to remain on three phase was was in case I ever wanted to install an electric kiln, but I think that's probably unlikely to happen now. Would you advise getting it changed to single phase, and does that also entail getting the wiring changed at all?
I'm sorry if these are rather silly questions, but I'm very ignorant about electricity.
A final question: does anyone know if the phone number for english speaking help at edf is still 0562164908, and the email address still firstname.lastname@example.org?
