This is the simple calculator to find neutral current in three-phase system. Often you need to find neutral current to size the neutral conductor. Also, in case of neutral conductor overheating you need to know that how much current is flowing through neutral.

Remember that in balanced three-phase system the current through neutral is zero. However, practically this is not always the case.

**How to use the calculator?**

- Enter the current drawn in all three-phases. You can note down the current flowing through each phase from Multi-function meter located on your panel. Another option is, you can individually measure current in each phase with the help of clamp-on meter.

Hello, the formula at the bottom has some type errors.

It should be

Sqrt( iR^2 + iY^2 + iB^2 – iR*iY – iR*iB – iY*iB )

Thank you my dear friend. I have removed that error.

Sir,

As we have connected a DT in agri feeder (I.e.) some times 3 phase supply and some times 2 phase supply-{RYY}, and hence the neutral current is so high. Will the DT may failed if continued in service? Pl tell me.

Yes, it may harm your DT. Single phase loads running on DT should be distributed evenly in each phase.

I wanted to know that the ampere is in neutral

Could you please elaborate your question?
