Current Topic:
Definition of current for a three phase circuit.

"a 60 amps circuit breaker can handle 60 amp at each phase , it will trip if any of the phases   carrier more than  60 amp  ."

 

and am I correct to assume that total load capacity at any time is also limited to 60 amps

(or is it cumulative 180 amps) ?

 

Thanks in advance !
