Wiring a Quad Electrical Outlet

volts to ground

I just read in the NEC handbook, pg. 141 that at 480Y/277volt system is considered to be 277volts to ground (grounded nuetral), but a 480volt ungrounded system is considered to be 480volts to ground....

volts to ground

Ok, the volts to ground is printed on the cable's insulation as you indicate. If I am installing a single phase line drop for 240/120volts which would connect to my service entrance of a house, I...

air conditioner

I have to assume the 24AC tranformer located in the furnace must be of a KVA rating that is very small since the incomming power connected to it is 240volts single phase with a smaller current. If...

Single phase transformer

Yes I had an error.

I meant to say single phase 12,470 volt primary, 240 volt line to ground/480 volt line to line secondary for the single phase transformer.

I am not talking about a 3 phase...

jwhite,

Are you telling me I can not have single phase 240 volt line to ground leaving 480 volts line to line?

If your pole mounted single phase transformer steps down from a 12,470 volt...
