Heidelberg Windmill Electrical

Just purchased a windmill and need to get the electrical hooked up. The motor is a 3 phase 220. They electrician needs to know if the machine is “voltage sensative’ i.e can it run 208 or 240. Apparently we cannot get 220 in the building.

Roger, in my shop I have residential electrical service , single phase. 240V, 220V, 208V and 110V too. 240V is just wired differently at the breaker with larger amperage. You can either change the motor(should have checked whether single or 3 phase before buying) or get a phase converter. I have 240V running one windmill and several other machines including an air compressor which requires minimum 208-240V. I have two other windmills that have 3 phase motors. I have to get a phase converter or change the motors too. Hope this helps. Kelly
