    Hello All,

    I read an interesting (possible) solution to a problem I have , just wanted a 2nd opinion.

    About to have a kitchen refit with two single ovens (3.5kw) and a separate hob.(7.5kw)

    I have a 6mm cable run from my consumer unit supplying a range cooker (which will be going)

    A possible solution I read on another forum, was to feed a small consumer unit with the 6mm cable. Have 3 ways on it, two 16a feeds to the single ovens, and one 32a feed to the hob.

    Uprate the MCB in my main consumer to a 45A , to feed the mini consumer unit.

    Does diversity allow me to do this?

    Any help appreciated.

    Yes, you can apply diversity.

    The result is 25.125 Amps.

    Need I say more?
