Can an American 240V dual phase dryer be converted to work in Korea with 240V single phase power?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

you could possibly design a fix for it but it would be a lot of trouble. the American dryer has internal components that run off 110v and that 110v is available from the three wire 220v circuit in the typical usa residence. this is because of the third wire, the neutral. the Korean 220 would be 2 wire. you would have to go inside the dryer, add a 220/110 transformer and rewire the dryer so that the 110v loads come off that transformer. it would then no longer be ul listed and would have to be evaluated by the authority having jurisdiction in Korea and back here in the usa.

Can you use 240V single phase power to power 277V fluorescent light fixtures?

\n. \nNo...but you can buy an "autotransformer" that will boost the 220 to 277. Transformers of this kind can be the auto type or isolation type and are available at a much

How do you convert 480v 3 phase to 240v single phase?

Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz power supply service. You use a single phase 480 to 240 volt step down transformer. Connect the primary across the 480 vo

Can you operating 240v 60hz single phase electric kiln on 240v 50hz single phase power supply system?

If the kiln is strictly a resistance heating element, with no motor, then yes, it should work fine.. Warning : the opposite, that is running a 240V 50hz (European) appliance

How do you get a split phase 120v 240v power supply from a single phase 240v supply for an American RV with a 50 amp service?

This is a common misconception. A standard 240 utility feed, common in the US, and a 120/240 feed are one in the same, the exact same thing. It is called (historically) an Edi

How can you get 240V single-phase power from a 240V 3-phase service Can you just connect to two poles of the 240V 3-phase service?

If the 240V 3-phase service is 240V phase-to-phase, then you can get 240V single-phase by simply picking two phases (poles, as used in the question) and connecting the load ac

How do you reduce 260v single phase to 240v?

You can buy a 1 to 1 (or 1:1) multi-tap isolation transformer sized to handle 260v and whatever volt-amps you intend to run. It will come pre-wired to give you the same output

How do you convert 480v single phase to 240v single phase?
