How to Wire a Single-Phase 230V Motor | Hunker Single-phase motors are used to power everything from fans to shop tools to air conditioners. Residential power is usually in the form of 110 to 120 volts or 220 to 240 volts. Wiring a motor for 230 volts is the same as wiring for 220 or 240 volts. Some motors allow both 120-volt and 240-volt wiring by providing a combination of wires for doing so. Engineering Tools - 3 Phase Wye and Delta | API Technologies 3 Phase Delta (Δ) A 3 Phase-Delta connected system consists of three hot lines, commonly referred to as X, Y, Z, and a ground wire for a total of four wires in a power distribution cable. In North America the most common 3 Phase-Δ voltages are either 208VAC or 240VAC, while internationally the most common 3 Phase voltage is 230 VAC.
