Current on each phase

Dear steven,

In a labour camp , there is no electrical data of existing load.So i took all connected loads by watts.and derived 517.93 KW.90 % single phase loads.VLL is 230V.VLN is 130V.And derived the kVA is 602.24 by .86 PF.SO what is the current taken on each phase

The current would be 1000*602/(3*130) = 1543 A.  This assumes the loads are equally balanced across the three phases.

I think you should also be considering some diversity as all your loads will not be operating at the same time.
