Breaker and fuse panels remain hot even if the main breaker is turned off or the main fuse is removed. Not only that I am pretty sure from what I have been studying over the last few days that once I figure out what the total amperage on each leg is, I still have some more calculations to make in order to convert everything to Watts. Draw a picture of a triangle, ground one corner, then draw another and ground in the middle of the base. This wire can be traced back to the electrical panel where it is connected to the neutral busbar. Many motors can run on 208v as well to take advantage of 208v. Many thanks for stopping by here. Along with specifics about 240v 3 wire plug diagrams can be accessed from many free resources via the internet.
Dave Hi John, I believe what you are describing are the wire colors that are inside the dryer which are found connected to the wiring terminals. This system is grounded in the middle of A and C phase. A more civilian use is in critical processing facilities where time consuming processes can ruin entire batches of product if interupted - say in drug or antibiotic facilities. Does anyone know if you can get a single rated 240 volt single pole circuit breaker?. These are just a few examples of how you might set up a metering system, and are simply intend to show what is possible. There can be some safety issues if multiple ground faults occur on these ungrounded systems at the same time - ground monitors can be employed to reduce the chance of this hazard causing problems.

Poke out another one of those tabs in the side of your breaker box to make room for the new wires. Use the wild leg with 2 pole and 3 pole loads?? Note: I should also note I am at the mercy of very touchy Air Conditioning compressors, which I continue to read are finicky about getting 230 V. Just take it at 100amps. Around here almost all small services are 2-transformer open delta with the lighting transformer way bigger than the power transformer, and pretty much all single phase loads are connected to the lighting transformer only. This job is for a church, which is a residental area, which scares me. How to Wire a 30 amp 3Wire Dryer Outlet Application: 240Volt Dryer Outlet Wiring. Scroll down this page to find a topic from our list.
When you measure the voltage between the 2 hot wires you will get 240 volts, when you measure from either hot to neutral you will get 120 volts.

All electrical work needs to be done by a licensed electrician for insurance purposes in my country. Not about to tell guys who have worked with these types of things there whole life anything about it. Wiring from B to A or C would create a 240 volt circuit only items listed in 210.

If there were 3 transformers on a pole connected wye on the primary, and delta on the secondary, and you opened one of the cut-outs, you'd still have 3 phase power available on the secondary. The down side for the utility's customers is the lack of flexibility since all lighting and receptacle outlets would be on the lighting normally larger with the center tap ground transformer.

Then there is a high legged 4-wire delta which gives you 120, 240, and 208. If I work out the load calculations I will reply back to this thread for the sake of good information. Thus why I am using the setup. I thought I would post it for an example of what I interpret as a code violation. Actually, quite clueless, except what I expressed earlier about them.
