I understand your dilemma Barry, trying to get a view of
things from a distance but I doubt that the national
electrical code has allowed a service entrance for a home in
America to not be at the minimum of 100 amps at 220 volts in
the last 50 years. I personally have never seen a home that
wasn't 220V. They used to only be 60 amps way back in the
40's and 50's but they were still 220V as to the 50hz or
60hz I like you would have guessed that it would take larger
KVA values for that to be a problem. I have never
experienced any problems of this type personally during
| With all due respect, one does get that impression from
time to time.
