ok here is one that really has me puzzled.you have a 3 phase 14400 volt primary with no neutral.you feed a single phase dual bushing 7.2/14.4 pri to 120/240 secondary transformer. where do you get the system neutral? i know that the secondary has a midpoint & is also grounded to the can & pole. but what keeps this in line so to speak? THANKS!
It doesn't really matter what the primary side is doing. But all you really want and need is good grounding of your neutral on the secondary side. That gets done at the pole, and also all the service entrances.
If the secondary wasn't tied to ground, capacitive coupling thru the transformer to the primary would create a substantial fraction of the primary voltage to appear on the secondary. Relatively high impedance, but more than enough to electrocute someone.
