Only if you want to damage it.

"277" Volt 3-phase will usually mean 277 from each phase to neutral, and 480 from phase to phase.

By "230 3-phase", you likely mean 120 phase-to-neutral, and 208 phase-to-phase.

If you really mean 230, then you are probably NOT talking about a three phase motor.

Can a 230 460 volt 3 phase motor be connected to a 277 480 volt 3 phase circuit?

Yes but the connection has to be to the 480 volt windings. Applying 277 volts to the 230 volt windings will damage the motor.

no. it clearly needs a 415 volt 3 phase motor.

What is the result of running a 480 volt 3 phase 60hz motor with 415 volt 3 phase motor?

If they are in different rooms or side by side in the same room, and not connected together mechanically, there should not be a problem.

In a 240 volt single phase circuit A phase is 4000 watts B phase is 7000 watts what is the neutral load?

Question is incorrect. in a 240 Volt single phase circuit, how can you have A phase and B phase?

Will a 208 volt 3 phase generator supply operate a 230 volt 3 phase motor?

Yes, but the motor's horsepower rating will not be reached.

What will happen if you connect two 110 volt wires together and connect it to a 220 volt motor?

On a three wire supply system if you connect the two 110V wires together and they are across the phase they will short out and trip the breaker. If the two 110V wires are supplied from across the phase and connected to a motor then the motor will run. If the 110V wires are on the same phase nothing will happen.

How do you change a 3 phase 440 volt motor to a 3 phase 220 volt motor?

You can not change it. 440 volt is by design. However you run it with 220 single phase supply, but it would run far lower power.

Can a 230-460 volt 3 phase motor be connected to a 277-480 volt 3 phase circuit?

The motor sounds like a multi-voltage motor that can be wired either 230v or 460v depending on how the leads are wired. So yes it should be able to be hooked to a 3 phase 480v system just make sure you follow the wiring diagram for hooking the leads up to 480v. when a manufacturer list 230v it normally operates at 240v and the same for 460v operating at 480 volts

Can two phase legs on a three phase system be used for single phase load?

The wire can be used for dc or any number of phases provided it's thick enough to take the current you need. <<>> Any two legs of a three phase system can be classed a single phase. As long as the voltage required by the load is supplied by the supply it can be connected. A perfect example of this is on a 120/208 volt supply. This is a three phase supply allowing three phase 208 volt motor to be connected to it and also by using any two legs of the supply, a single phase 208 volt motor can also be connected.

Can you run a 570 volt motor on 480 volt three phase power supply?

No, the voltage difference is too much. A 570 volt motor falls in the 600 volt range which is separate from the 480 volt range of three phase systems.

Is a 110 volt motor single phase or three phase?

110 volt supplies are usually single-phase so it's most likely to be a single phase motor. You can also tell by the number of wires or terminals. Only two indicates a single phase motor.

On a 220 volt electric motor which is the neutral wire L1 L2 or L3?

If the motor wire numbers are L1, L2 and L3, it is not a single phase motor. It is a three phase motor. Also for future reference, a 220 volt single phase motor does not use a neutral.

Acceptable voltage drop for 3 phase 415 volt motor?

The voltage drop should not exceed 3% on a feeder or branch circuit.

Use a transformer.

A 9.0 volt battery is connected to a 4.0-ohm and 5.0-ohm resistor What is the current in the circuit?

If a 9.0 volt battery is connected to a 4.0-ohm and 5.0-ohm resistor connected in series, the current in the circuit is 1.0 amperes. If a 9.0 volt battery is connected to a 4.0-ohm and 5.0-ohm resistor connected in parallel, the current in the circuit is 0.5 amperes.

How do you wire a 10 hp 1 phase motor 440 volt?

You don't, single phase motors that size are wired to 240 volt circuits, to put a 10 hp single phase motor on 440 volt would require a transformer and numerous other components. Use a 3 phase motor they are significantly cheaper to purchase.

How do you reverse 240 volt single phase motor with start capacitor?

You can reverse a 240 volt single phase motor with start capacitor by reversing the leads to the start winding.

How do you rewire a 3 phase 2 speed 480 volt motor to operate on 220 volt single phase power?

you dont you have to buy a step down transformer or a new motor

Can a 380 volt 3 phase motor work on 415 volt 3 phase?

The difference is less than 10% so there should be no problem.

Are there 3 phase 277 volt fixtures?

No because 277 volt is a single phase of 3 phase connected with the neutral. Of a 3phase 480V y system electrical service.
