For my City and Guilds 2391 course, I will be testing a three-phase distribution board with a motor and single-phase sub-main.
I am finding it hard to memorize the test procedures. So for me it's about repetition, but naturally I don't have a three-phase supply at home.
I want to buy a Clarke PC 60 three-phase converter (instruction manual). Now AFAIK for the single-phase sub-main to work, I would require a neutral because single-phase loads aren't balanced or something like that. It's been a while since I studied three-phase theory.
The converter only has a 4 pin TP and earth plug, so no neutral. I just wanted to check with people more knowledgeable, can I just run a neutral separately from the wall socket feeding the converter? I don't see why not, because it's the same supply.
I might even be able to do it internally for a cleaner install, but I have to return the converter afterwards so I can't be taking it apart.
