Hm. Doesn't make sense to me. We already took the wave attributes into account when we calculated rms current and rms voltage right? If each phase is isolated, and you have a given power for each phase, why don't you just have 3*given power. Where does the extra power go? Does it bounce back into the batteries? I knew AC was magic! If you got rid of 2 phases how much power would you have? 144V*sqrt(2)*300A*sqrt(2)*sqrt(3)/3? What does adding 2 more phases do to each individual phase?
