    I recken I an getting older,, I judge dirt and like taking micro close ups of wild flowers, Strange is me, as I shall not be in the normal as it can become monotonous.
    Hunting is a sport of love,, I dont enjoy the killing aspect of it more so being outdoors and the great bounty of the days end.

    single phase most people call it 220,, but think of it ,, one leg has to be out of {phase} to gain 220 / long story it all depends on how far you wish to know my friend. but as you say 2 phase... that would mean 4 wires properly installed at any start and ending of the wires if it had 110 vac controls.....everyone wires electricity ,.,, the only difference is a man that can cypher what is wrong and understand it and how to do it right the first time/

    I'm not an election. I have wired a few machines in 35 years of buying and selling them. One time I bought some machines from an old factory in Philadelphia. All the motors were 2 phase. I had to replace them with single or 3 phase. It's the only time I've ever seen 2 phase equipment.

    So how do they get the 2 phase? What is the original voltage and how is it connected?

    Transformers, convert most all things we know of but there are other ways to create a difference in a cycle of a current.magnetic with a motor ,,, one would use a different configuration of how the motor windings would be.. for best performance, much like the generator in your car.. making electricity from a medicinal motion. Then you have the stata Phase. using capacitors/

    you ask---What is the original voltage and how is it connected--- this I would say as I have built one hydro dam and have done service work for the core of engineers.All voltage is regulated at the source and conditioned there as well,. an answer of the source I cant recall other then they do have high voltage motors to generate,, as its more economical to reduce the voltage than to increase.
