Setting the Phase of Single-Phase Loads on Three-Phase Switchboards

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

Q: When connecting a single-phase load to a three-phase switchboard, how do you specify the phase the load should be connected to?

A: After you connect the load to the switchboard, select the circuit in the Circuiting dialog box. In the Circuit Information section, find the Starting Phase setting. By default, loads are set to phase A. Adjust it to a different phase as necessary.
