I have a couple more questions about power to homes in Europe. Our device draws between 12A and 45A (at 230vac) depending on its configuration. It appears that at the high end of the scale that will be a problem in the UK or France or Germany, where the domestic distribution panel is a single phase. (protected by a main breaker in the 60 to 120A range) In these circumstances (UK etc.) I assume there will be several individual circuit breakers each rated at 16A? IIRC I saw something about 32A circuit breakers somewhere - is this possible?
In other countries (like Sweden) is the main protection a 3 phase breaker such that if one phase is overloaded all phases are interrupted? or are there 3 individual breakers? In these cases I assume the 3 phases are distributed throughout the home - some lights are on phase A, some outlets on phase B and some of each on phase C. Is there more than one circuit breaker for each phase? For instance is it possible that the outlets on the first floor use phase A, breaker 1 while the outlets on the second floor use phase A, breaker 2? What would be a common rating for each
