240v high leg

Best answer


In the US,240V Power is provided to small buildings with large loads as 240V 3 Phase Open Delta. It鈥檚 like 120 /240V but also provides 240V 3 Phase for large loads (Machinery,etc.). It鈥檚 often called鈥淲ild Leg鈥?/strong>of 鈥淗igh Leg鈥?Delta because one leg (Phase B) is different.

  • Does 120 208 volt have a high leg?

  • Secondly, does 120 208 volt three phase have a high leg? Three Phase Four Wire Delta Also known as a high-leg or wild-leg delta system. Used in older manufacturing facilities with mostly three-phase motor loads and some 120 volt single-phase lighting and plug loads. Phase B, the high or wild leg, is not used as the voltage to neutral is 208 volt.

  • What is the advantage of a 240 volt high leg delta?

  • The higher voltage deliver more power for the same current. A 240 volt high leg delta is a less commonly used three phase arrangement. It gives good three phase performance, with 240 volts phase to phase.

  • What is the voltage between high leg and neutral?

  • Voltage between High leg and Neutral = 1/2 x 220V x 鈭? = 208V (1-桅). Voltage between two hot Phase = 120V x 2 = 240V (1-桅). Voltage between three Phases = 240V (3-桅).

  • What is the difference between 240V and 240V 3 phase?

  • In the US, 240V Power is provided to small buildings with large loads as 240V 3 Phase Open Delta. It鈥檚 like 120 / 240V but also provides 240V 3 Phase for large loads (Machinery, etc.). It鈥檚 often called 鈥淲ild Leg鈥?of 鈥淗igh Leg鈥?Delta because one leg (Phase B) is different.
