    Transformer kva
    I am looking to get 1phase 240/120 temporary power from a 3phase 480V power source for construction purposes. My electrical contractor suggested a 5kVa transformer but didn't give details. Question is: 5kVa transformer would technically be good for around 20 amps at 240Volts right?
