Hi, I'm doing my Level 3 Electrical Install course, and I'm doing distance learning so most of the work is being done by myself with no guidance.

I'm doing the design project, and just had a couple quick questions.

Question 4 asks about circuit details for the cafe/pool block, with the first one being design current. The table states info such as "this food holding unit requires a 16A 400v 3-phase supply". Just to be 100% sure, the wattage would just be 16*400=6400w, right? The only 3-phase design current calculation I know of is (Ib=watts/√3 x 400 x pf), would that be correct?

Secondly it asks about 4 fridges supplied by 2x 16A single phase circuits to socket outlets. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this means that each 16A circuit has 2 fridges connected to it, so would the total wattage be 16*230=3680w(for 2 fridges)? I understand that Ib=In for socket outlets, but it still asks to state wattage.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Hi tssxrr,
I am also doing my assignment on the same topics. would you mind sharing the documents which you have done so I will have rough idea where to start. Your help much appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

If you are using Zdb you do not add on Ze as that is already incorporated into Zdb.
