    Separate hob and oven. Rating combined just under 13000w

    Am I right in applying diversity and the two appliances sharing the same supply.

    45a dp switch off to two ccu's

    32amp mcb 60898
    6mm supply cable

    What about the case where the oven comes with a 13amp plug on the end?

    Chop the plug off and proceed as normal, a 13A plug on a fixed appliance not subject to overload is just an unnecessary potential point of failure.
