You need your own generator. All north american power is 60Hz. You already have 240 volts (which should be fine) but you will not get 50 Hz anywhere without generating it yourself.

actually, you can do it without your own generator. A freq drive can be programmed to provide 50hz constantly.

so, the question is; what do you need it for?
