I was looking at the classified ads on this site. Somebody has a bunch of pole transformers that have 240/480 secondaries.

In what application would they be used?

I see these around mine sites quite a bit. Many mine sites use 240 or 480 3 phase Delta ungrounded systems as permitted by 250.21 (A)(4). These transformers could also be used for a corner grounded Delta.

Is 240/480 delta a common configuration for oil fields too?
