"Single Phase 240V AC:

This is also known as two phase or split phase AC supply but mostly called single phase supply." This quote is from this website https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.electricaltechnology.org/2020/07/electrical-wiring-color-codes-nec-iec.html/amp
What is 240 - 250 volts really and what is 120 - 125 volts really? As far as phase goes or split phase. I've heard 240 - 250V is single and I've heard it called split phase. I've heard 120 - 125 V as split phase. So what is it really?
 
240V can either be delivered as 2 opposing hots with neutral in the middle (North American split phase, 120-0-120) or as a single hot and a neutral (Eurostyle)
(there are also 240V 3ph schemes, but those are a whole another can of worms)
 
@adamaero This comment is regarding the voltage regulator question. Separate from the other one I just posted. Ok, well do you think that the 240 V at 225 A might be able to handle it? Not necessarily the current, but the wattage. Since they are someone exchangeable, or so I have just recently learned with fuses. Might not be same with voltage regulators. Yes, I'm making the machine. It is made, just need the regulator for a more stable arc.
@Shalvenay Ok, so in the U.S 120 V is technically split phase and the voltage difference between the 2 phases are single phase? (240 V)
@adamaero I had recently learned with fuses that the wattage is interchangeable in a way. Or so it seems. I had a 32V 40 Amp fuse and it blew on an inverter. (Solar stuff) So I replaced it with a slow blow 20A 125V (it says 240V on it, but I was used on 125V for a microwave) and I was able to draw the same 40 amps through it, and it still works. So this is why I think it was the wattage. If it was the current it would've blown... right?

Sensors Expo in San Jose
It’s an actual exhibit. Like… with booths… and people and stuff. Remember those?
If anyone wants to go, today is the 2nd and last day.
I didn’t pay the registration fee. Promo code FIERCE21 .
