Amtech will not let me record a single phase D.B from a 3 phase D.B for a sub-mains. It keeps saying in a warning message that the installation is 3 phase and it cannot be recorded as single phase even though it will let me record single phase D.B's individually on the board schedules...
Someone is connected to the grid with single phase supply and they have a 4kW PV array directly connected. They want to increase their PV generation, and add another 4kW.
I keep reading that if you generate more than 4kW you need a "3 phase inverter to split the load".
But I can't find out...

I don't often install single-phase CUs, but I need a couple of metalclad 10-way units for a light commercial situation, which will be populated with all RCBOs. They simply need to be reasonable quality, with not-too-expensive RCBOs, as roomy as possible.
If they can be got from Screwfix, so...
I would be glad if you could clarify this for me:
For a Load Estimate Survey whereby 95% is single phase, the Load Estimate is 90 KVA (Single Phase). However, the power supply is three phase 4 wire system.
To calculate the current per phase, the 90 kVA is divided by three i.e. 30...

We need to hook up a 110v, single phase, 50A fryer to a 100A, 110v/220v, single phase panel. A few flourescents will be on during the fryer's operation, but not much else. Will this cause any sort of unbalanced load? (110v, single phase, 50A - it's all we could get at the moment)
