I have a system that is running on 208 VAC. I plan to use a 10 kVA buck boost transformer to power two electrodes. The transformer has input connections for 120 & 240 V, & output connections for 16 & 32 V. The desired design is to feed the 240 V input connection with 208 V to get 27.73 V on the 32 V output connection.
One of my main concerns is that the wires coming out of the transformer 32 V output connection are only 4 AWG wires, but we intend to pretty much run the transformer at its full load current. From the transformer manufacturer's datasheet, it lists that the full load current for the 32 V output connection to be 312 A.
I guess my confusion is that even if the transformer was being fed 240 V instead of 208 V, how would size 4 AWG wires be able to handle 312 A?

I'm an inexperienced engineer and don't have another engineer to ask about this.
