I already asked a question about three-phase power but my results only confirmed what I thought. I don't understand how a MOTOR can run at 230v with three phases, how do they rate power with these I guess. 230v outlets have three prongs, I think two are connected to the generator through power transmission lines, and one is a ground. If this is wrong were do they get 230v because, if I am wrong all three wires connect to generator coils. This would add up to 345v. But to get 230v it would only be two phases. Then it can also run on 480v, how in the world do you get to 480v. Please help me with this.
