Not directly, you would need to transform 480v circuit to 120v with a transformer first.
416 A and 208 A respectively
480v 3phase is dangerous than 120v 3phase.
Theoretically that can be done with transformers, but the power available would still be limited by the circuit breaker on the original 120 v supply.
You cannot use 2-120v outlets to power a 240v dryer. You can convert a 240v dryer outlet to power 2-120v outlets if they are supplied with a neutral. This requires a competent electrician. Do not do this yourself.
use a transformer
In the supply industry it refers to circuits of below 1000 volts. Common voltages used are 120v, 208v, 230v, 240v, 277v, 400v, 415v, 480v.
Lighting transformers are used to convert 120V to 12V.
You can buy a converter.
It is the line to line voltage divided by 1.73. 600V / 1.73 = 347V 480V / 1.73 = 277V 380V / 1.73 = 220V 208V / 1.73 = 120V
im have a 30 kva transformer 3 phase 480v 80 amp panel 120v what size disconnect should I use
The kVA rating will be listed on the transformer's nameplate, which is usually on the front of the transformer. The 480v to 120v is irrelevant, because many transformers with different kVA ratings convert 480 volts to 120 volts. The kVA ratings can be different and thus affect the rated current through the transformer.
Mathematically, just divide 480 by the square root of three. Electrically, 480V refers to the line-to-line value of a three phase system. For example, measure the voltage across A-phase and B-phase and you'll get 480V. 277V is the line-to-neutral value. Measure the voltage across A-phase and the neutral conductor and you should get 277V.
3 phase 480v 20amp ckt
AC voltage conversions are usually done with transformers. Most commonly, a 3 phase 277/480v system is transformed to a 3 phase 120/208v system. You can, however transform to anything you like with the proper transformer. If you are trying to convert 480v single phase to 240v single phase, such as for home use, then ask for that type transformer. It would use only 2 phases of the 3 phase system. Using 2 phases is called single phase and there are reasons for this that are beyond the scope of this answer. 220v and 110v are field measurements of what is considered 240v and 120v when ordering equipment or applying code.
You would be better to use a 220/480 transformer to provide the 480v, rather than try to modify the appliance
240v x 13.5A = 3.24kVA, single phase transformer.
You can using a transformer, but you won't have as many amps available. 5000 watt generator @ 120v = 41.66 amps 5000 watts / 240v = 20.83 amps
It can't be "converted", you have to run a 220 line and have a 220 breaker and plug installed.
Electronic technician will convert in no time. You need 240v power transformer in place of same wattage 120V. Super easy.
Go into settings. There should be a reset icon or menu item.
A: My advice is do not try it 120 v will require 480v /120 or 4 times the current. assuming 100% efficiency. a transformer can do it but there will be a loss of 20% . House wiring is 15 amps per circuit . So if your whatever unit needs more the 3 amps it just cannot be done. A PWM can also do this job more efficiently but then again the total power is in question.
3 phase 480V is three phases of 277V in other words if you have a 480V three phase panel each single breaker is a 277V feed if this doesn't answer your question ask it in a little more detail
On the 208v side: 208 amps On the 480v side: 90 amps Transformers are generally used from higher voltage to lower voltage but they can be used in either direction.
It will work it you use 240 volt light bulbs.
