High Voltage Question: Run 50Hz/3ph/200V motor.
I’m working on a precious plastic workshop project in the Maldives and I have a very nice powerful 5.5 KW Mitsubishi lying around here that I’d like to use for the shredder.
See image of typeplate below.
As you can see it’s a 50Hz 3 phase 200V one with 4 poles. ( That is Japanese 3-phase power, see: https://www.worldstandards.eu/three-phase-electric-power ) In the Maldives is the same as in Europe (and a lot of countries I see on the link above): 50Hz 400VHigh power electronics is not really my field an some quick googling don’t give me clear answers, so:
Does anybody know whether there is a way to wire it up, or rewire it to run here?
Thanks! This one we would have for free though, it’s lying here doing nothing, so the question remains valid. For the shredder 5,5kw should be possible, no?
We have a reducer. I’ll make and post a picture later so you can help me decide whether that would make good combination.
Thanks a lot already.
it’s possible sure, but the motor dictates basically everything: inverter, reducer, couplings, housing, mounts, driveshaft; everything bigger and way more expensive. you can go down that road if you are sure you need a scale-able system. for instance, you could connect 2 shredders and extruders to such motor, but again, be sure you really want this.
you could cheat with less powerful/efficient couplers & reducer, but you’re walking then on thin ice, and your setup is not safe anymore !
Everything clear. Mechanically. Thanks for the feedback!
I’m still wondering whether we should keep or recycle it, so the electrical question remains: Is there a way to run a 200V 3phase (Japanese) motor on a 400V 3phase system?
We might use it for a compost shredder that needs a 5.5kW motor.
