    I have a question regarding maximum demand

    If you have multiple three phase loads and a multiple single phase load how do you calculate the total power.

    I know how to calculate the loads (kW) for both single and three phase loads but when you want to combine these for total load how do you represent a single phase load to add to the three phase load

    Do you have to change everything to KVA then add together??
    Is there another calculation I need to work out.
