I got a good deal on a 3-phase generator, but everything I have is single phase. There's a sticker on it that says 230v 60hz.
The output is a 4-wire plug. I did some testing with my multimeter and it seemed I had the following:
- Green wire: Ground
- Red, Black, and White wires: Somewhere around 110v I believe (hard to read on the analog multimeter I had handy).
I'm used to having 110 house wiring have a hot wire, a neutral, and a ground, so I'm a little confused on what I'd have to do here. Would I wire one of the 110 wires to hot, the green to ground, and a common wire between all of my outlets as the neutral?
Second question is what to do if I wanted 220v? Two of the hot wires, green to ground, and common wire between all outlets?
And finally, I've read that it's best to distribute load across all the phases. So would that mean if I wanted 3 110v outlets, I'd want to wire one up to each of the hot wires?
