I'm guessing you're looking at a rotary converter. Do the motors need to be de-rated? The math looks off between single phase input and 3 phase output.

Any chance of doing this with VFD's? Appropriately sized VFD's can convert a single phase input to three phase.


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

This is a Full HVAC unit was ordered wrong. MCA on name plate 74 amps single point hookup.
So need about 80 amps or so on three phase side.
As starteres ect are all ready in the package looking for 3 phase power imput. Vendor told us 40 hp unit well do the trick just checking.
