    Jack a 7.4 KW hob will draw max 32.2 Amps and a 5.8 KW oven will draw Max 25.2 Amps you will need to apply Diversity to those calcs, best advicget an Electrician to design and install circuits to suite the needs.

    His profile says Quals Part P & 17th so not to be rude to the OP this should be well within what he has been taught. I am hoping that the OP knows the answer but is doubting himself.

    A lot of (sparks) hmm, would struggle with that question, let me remind everyone the new appliances will also come with instructions, now even though as an electrician you should be able to work out the load and cable size, the instructions will also have their own minimum cable size suggested as well lol, that will confuse a lot here, not all of us have enough experience to know what cable is needed automatically or whether one supply is enough for both units.

    That will be all down to Part P then Ant cus the 17th teaches you jack all, except how to pass an exam. Neither qualification will class you as an Electrician. Well maybe it does these days. Part P is a building regulation NOT a qualification.

    And if the location is the OP''s postcode, then Wales have the stricter Part P rules to contend with too.

    I see the OP's been back on and not updated us as yet ............................
