Can a three phase 220v-240v motor run on single phase 220v power supply? The answer is yes. There are some pieces of equipment you can buy to do this, i.e. rotary phase converter, static phase converter, and also static frequency converter, but all off such devices are kinds of expensive. The affordable way is buying a single phase variable frequency drive (VFD) to get the job done. A single phase VFD can convert 1-phase 220v-240v to 3-phase to power the three phase motor, also can reduce the inrush current of the motor during starting up. The most important thing is, it's "Cheap" in ATO online store.
