    shared parameter types

    I am looking to create a shared parameter (elec discipline) for horsepower, phase and amps but not sure which type to use. Here are the choices in Revit MEP 2010, thanks in advance.

    I would classify horsepower under "Power" and phase and amps under "Electrical Potential" but I have been wrong in the past.

        Elec Potential units are V (volts), so I dont think that is the correct type to use for phase and amps

          Volt Elec Elec Potential
          Amp Elec Current
          Phase Elec Number of Poles
          Horsepower Elec Power

            or maybe not.... using "power" for horsepower is showing units as VA (volt amp) which is not right. Also, I am told by our elec eng that number of poles has nothing to do with phase, so my question still stands for these 2.
