I have had no formal electrical engineering education, my comments maybe incorrect, if so please advice.
I live in a Condominium the main single phase drop is routed via a Main Breaker called Safe-T-Cut that provides a selection between Direct, 25A, 15A, 5A (currently its set to 5A) this is connected to a breaker box with a Main breaker is 10A and individual circuits are at 5A
With some parttime hobby my electrical requirement has gone pass the individual circuit limit of 5A, biggest challenge is that the 7 circuits in the house are divide as such
- all electrical outlets
- Aircondition 1
- Aircon 2
- Aircon 3
- Hot water
(all electrical outlets in 3 rooms are all in one circuit, this is a design which I am foreign to)
I am looking at alternatives, the easiest would be to take another outlet from one of the under utilized of the remaining 6.
I was also wondering If I am doing so would it be beneficial / possible to take both 5A circuits (there will not be other appliances on it)
is there some device that can be used for such composition? where input would be 5A capable line and output is a near 10A (I would limit it to around 8.5A so that I am not reaching the main breaker limit, and adjust safety-cut to 15A)
is it a stabilizer what I would be needing?
UPDATE: each unit in the condominium has a direct connect to the main supply from the provider with a main switch at 30A, condomeniums are individually owned and maintained. Internal wiring at the unit is for the owner of each unit.
I am more interested in a academic aspect of my question as an understanding of it. i read in a 3 phase system where each phase is 60 degrees apart the combination of the phases appears to be somewhat trivial from a high level design and understanding.
so in my case since two circuits of 5A each is coming from the same phase maybe i would require a phase shifter first? (haven't googled that yet, just thought of it as i was writing this sentence)
