    We received a 225kva Wye to Wye transformer 480/277 to 208/120 however our primary side from the city is 480 delta. The primary was hooked up without the neutral required for a Wye primary and is now creating a 208v high leg on the secondary side. This is not making sense to me. I would think...

    Hello all, Many halogen transformers don't work with LED bulb replacements because there is a minimum power requirement for the switchmode transformer to work properly. Therefore, I would think that if I wired 4 or 5 LED globes in parallel to a 60VA transformer then it should work. Is this...
