Why is the 3 phase WYE 2 section kiln Amp listing on the panel ID lower than the actual amp reading on Neutral?

  • If the kiln were 3 sections with wires running to N, L1, L2, and L3 all 3 amp readings (L1, L2, and L3) would be the same.
  • On a 2 section kiln the wires run only to N, L1 and L2. The amp readings on L1 and L2 are the same and lower than the amp reading at N. The engineers do not list amp readings at N only L1, L2 & (L3).
