Phase lost and Earth Leakage trips.
Since there are a few people watching this thread, I have another problem to contend with.
I keep getting phase lost and earth leakage trips. After a few restarts, the problem usually goes away until the next day. I have double checked all connections. The motor connections were a little loose but the problem persists. Any ideas? The trip current is 3.5mA for the VFD. I am using 10mm^2 3 core+earth, unsheileded. about 4M long. The motor was mega tested when I bought it and I will borrow one to test again.
