Hi, I have a question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose I have a motor that runs on 3 phase power. If I only wanted to find out the total amount of current that the motor draws, how would I go about doing that?

Would I just use a clamp meter to get the amount of current going through each phase and then add them up to get the total current that the motor draws?
