Hi Guys thanks for reading.I have a 3 phase compressor with a 5.5kw motor,this will run on single phase via a 7.5kw vfd. I will need to run a whole new circuit but I also want to have an additional 15amp double gpo right next to it.Can this be done with 1 cable or will I need 2 ? and what size breaker/'s, cable/'s and gpo's would you use? The cable length will be 10 meters from the meter box to the power points and run in conduit 240 volts

Why do you need a VFD? Wouldn't a simple phase converter work?
