If someone can help me. I have a business and have been told 10 different things by different electricians. I have 100 amp service comming into my building with 480 volts and then running through a 480 3 phase transformer.
Does that mean or is it possible to turn that 100 amps into 200 amps? Thanks if you can give me any info.:yes:

480v x 100 amps x 1.73 = 83,040 VA.

83,040 VA / 208v / 1.73 = 230.76 amps at 208/120v 3 phase


I am assuming a 3 phase system, stepped down from 480 3 ph to 208/120 3 ph.
