# How Convert 230 volt to 460 volt?

To convert single phase 230 to 460 volt, you would need a transformer that is rated at 460v and 230v respectively. It can be a step down or step up transformer. For 3 phase, you would need a 3 phase transformer.

### How many amps does a 1.5 hp motor pull?

To answer this question a voltage should be stated. Three phase motor, 230 volt 5.2 amps, 460 volt 2.6 amps, 575 volt 2.1. Single phase motor, 115 volt 20 amps, 230 volt 10 amps. These are nominal amperages from the code book. For accurate calculations the amperage should be taken from the motors name plate.
