What would you like to do?

If you need 220v 3-phase power how many wires are required coming in from the transformer or power pole and what are the voltages or potential purposes of each wire load 110v load 220v neutral ground?

In 120/208V 3 phase system you have 5 wires: three hots, one neutral, and one ground. You have 208V between any two hots and 120V between any hot and neutral. The neutral is the same as in a single phase system. Clarification: Only 4 wires maximum come from the pole - 3 phases and a neutral, and then only if the transformers are on the pole. The ground is always locally derived from a ground rod(s) and/or cold water pipe ground. Most of the time, only 3 wires come in from the pole - the 3 phases in a Delta configuration (Delta has no neutral). The neutral is then derived from a local transformer connected in a Delta-Wye setup. The neutral is the center connection in the Wye. So, from the utility feeder to the transformer - 3 wires. From the transformer (wherever it is located) to the building service entrance panel - 4 wires. The ground is connected at the service entrance panel, and from there to the rest of the building you would have all 5 wires. Clear? In the US, 208/120 is a standardized mains voltage, but in some parts of the world, the phase-to-phase voltage is 220. In that case, the phase-to-neutral potential (in a 3-phase system) would be 127 Volts, not 120.
Thanks for the feedback!

What wire gauge for a 10 hp motor 220V 3 phase?

To answer this question, wire size is rated in the amount of amperage that it can legally carry. The formula to find amperage when the HP is known is I = HP x 746/1.73 x E x %

What size wire is required to run 50 amp 220V?

  Answer   generally size #6, but there can be factors which would require up-sizing, such as   high ambient temperature long run causing excessive voltage dro

Why use 220V instead of 110V?

  The most basic reason to use 220 instead of 11o is that for a given load Watts= Volts x Amperes Double the volts and you will halve the amperes. The rating of wire is th

How to Wire a low voltage thermostat for a 220v baseboard heater?

  You will need a relay with a low-voltage coil and 220v contacts rated for the current load of the baseboard heater. If you have a low-voltage transformer, see what its o

Do you need a neutral wire for 220v generator?

  Quick answer is that 220v does not use or need a neutral. The original concept of the neutral (going back to Edison and DC power) was cutting the power in half (not real

How do you change a 220v wire to a 110v wire?

When you talk about a 220 volt wire and 110 volt wire, the reference is to the insulation factor of the wire. The amount of amperage that the wire has a capacity to carry is i

What is the difference between a 3-wire 220v and a 4-wire 220v?

3 wire is 2 hots which are 120 volts each and a ground. 4 wire is 2 hots which are 120 volts each and a ground and a neutral.

Why is the power supply in the US 110v and in India it is 220v?

The power supply in usa is 110 V and where as in india the voltage is 220 v.As we use transformers and transformer is a constant power device i.e. P=V*I=Constant. Therefore

Why use 110v instead of 220v?

110 v intead of 220 v is a choice made by governments for their own  reasons. 110 v tends to be inherently safer but requires more  current to carry an equal power, so more

How do you wire a four wire 220v?

The 4-wire cable should have black, red, white and a green or bare wire. The 220 volts is between red and black. The white is neutral or common and there would be 110 volts be

How do you wire a 110v outlet to 220v?

  To wire a 110v outlet to 220v the 220v source must have a neutral conductor that is 110v away from the hot leg. If you don't have the neutral, you must provide a new cir
