PSCC - Prospective short circuit current. maximum current than can flow in the even of a short circuit fault i.e Line - Neutral, Or, Line - Line

PEFC - Prospective Earth Fault current - Maximum current that can flow in the event of a fault to earth.

You record the highest of the 2, however on a 3phase system you record double the L-N value (Unless you tester is capable of measuring L-L)

Its very unusually to have a PFC that high unless you'r in an industrial unit right next to the substation. what is your Ze value??
