Step 2 - Calculate the Maximum Demand and Apply Load Balancing
After completing step one, the designer is able to calculate the load demand of each distribution circuit and the maximum demand of the installation by applying diversity factors. Also if required the user can specify any spare load percentage to be considered. In case of a three phase installation, at this stage it is appropriate to make changes for load balancing starting from the downstream sub distribution circuits, and moving upstream to the Main Distribution Circuit. The designer can balance the load by moving, swapping or shifting circuits in the distribution circuit so the loads per phase are balanced.
