your posts are excellent for a person who has working knowledge of electric circuits.
the french system is nothing new to me as I have spent over 20 years working on similar systems.
the only problem I have is trying to find out the rating of the cable coming into the house I have purchased. I forgot to look when I was over there and now I am busy drawing up plans for the property. It is single phase but I guess as it is very old will only be a few amps.
The supply cable is slung on poles, from the main network line, to the house, but does not look to healthy. it is the only house in the area so my supply is designated to me.
Basically just wondering what transformer size is used or do i have to get the supplier to instal a larger one.
