# What is the difference between 460 or 480 volt?

The difference between 460 volts and 480 volts is 20 volts. They are not the same but all voltages have a nominal and a tolerance on each side of it. For example US household is 115 (or 117 or 118) nominal, and it can be between 110 and 120, or sometimes between 105 and 125 volts.

### Is 277 volt and 277 volt equals 460 volt?

No, voltages in a wye configuration are not additive. Calculations for wye connection used the nominal voltage of 480 volts. The voltage of 277 volts is derived from the the phase voltage of 480 divided by the square root of 3 (for three phase) . 480 / 1.73 = 277 volts. For phase voltage of 460 the coil voltage to ground will be 460/1.73 = 266 volts.
