I have a project coming up and need to model a 8kva single phase UPS' and power path. I know I need to use floor mount units, however when I tried to use a 2 pole 208 breaker on the PDU, it doesn't show up, only the single pole breaker does. I did set the pdu output voltage to 208/60.
The only work around seems to be to use a 3ph UPS & PDU and only use 2 phases.
Does anyone else have any other suggestions?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi Andrew Trabert, thanks for posting.
Let's hope you find your answer here.
Kind regards Ditte

In the genomes you can create a single pole breaker with the size of 2 (just copy the exiting 1P breaker) and use that, it will then look like (and occupy the same space as) a 2 pole breaker.
Since DCO does not consider the pole count for single phase UPS's, this solution will work just similar to having an actual 2 pole breaker.
I would not recommend using a 3 phase UPS, because it is always going to result in having non-utilized capacity on the power phase not used, which means the capacity calculations are going to be wrong.
The only case where using a single phase UPS would not work, is if the actual UPS is a split-phase-UPS, e.g. it has 2 phases + neutral as output, because it would then both have 120V and 208V outputs which you cannot do with a single phase UPS in DCO.

Thank you! That solution will work since these are not split phase ups', and as far as I know, they do not have a step down transformer (however I guess that could be modeled as a separate pdu).
Is it currently on the roadmap/or is there an enhancement request to add 120/208 output from a single phase UPS'?
