yes, they are purley resistive. The wires would draw more current in order to put out the same amount of power. Dont hook it up off of 208 unless the manufacter says you can.

How do you Ground a 3 wire service?

If you do not have a underground metal water pipe coming into the building then you put a ground rod at least 2 feet from the buildingf into the ground attach one end of the wire to ground rod run your ground wire and attach the other end to the neautral bar in the panel box. You need special transformer called as grounding transformer for this purpose. Grounding transformer is basically Wye-Delta type transformer with Wye connected winding connected to 3 line wires and derived neutral from Wye side grounded through desired grounding device. Delta side winding of grounding transformer is kept at no load.

How to operate a relay through two parallel relays?

To operate a relay ( I am calling "third relay") from two separate parallel control relays is called logic "or". Connect the power wire coming in to both of the paralleled relays' switch common contact. ( These relays are up to you to wire their coils and activate.) Depending on the logic required you will wire the third relay coil to the paralleled control relays normally open or normally closed contacts. That is: Do you you want the third relay to go on with the control relays activation or off?

Why does amperage go down when voltage rises?

I assume that you're talking about power conversion by a transformer. The simple answer is that the power coming out cannot exceed the power coming in and power is equal to current times voltage. Therefore the product of amperage and voltage must remain constant. (Actually, it will be somewhat lower on the output because the transformer will not be 100% efficient.)
