Don't think it would work very efficiently. The core needs to be heavier on lower frequencies.

would probably work ok but may not deliver full power capacity, if you do the inverse (connect a 60hz to 25hz) it will make the transformer overheat

Sorry, think I dislecsicked that. Dislexic? Won't fix my spelling on that one. Oh well. Think you can put higher on lower rated transformer.

It would probably go twice as fast.

Their will be a huge build up of flux, and the toilets will flush counterclockwise for a 6 - 7 mile radius

Higher frequency = less iron needed.

This is why airplanes use 400HZ. A 10HP motor @ 400HZ is about the size (and weight) of a 2 HP @ 60HZ.

thats why they use micro transformers in switching power supply that works in the 10-1000 khz range and can deliver lots of power comparing to 60hz transformers

Hi Micro

Many years ago we were putting in a new ups and switchboard into a place ,they were also installing i think (long time ago) a motor generator set which ran at 400hz. and of course i asked the guy why 400Hz and (if my memory is correct) he replied that if it got a glitch at 400hz it was,nt noticable but at 50Hz it would be....??
