I have a 100 amp, 3 phase 208 volt service panel, and I need to provide electricity to 6 locations. The first location requires 60 amps, 3 phase, 208 volt service and is located 200 feet away. What size AWG do I need? The next five locations are located 1300 feet away and I need to provide a seperate 15 amp, single phase service on a single receptacle to each location. I was going to use a 208/480 3 phase step up transformer and a 480/208 step down transformer and then provide three locations with 20 amp, single phase service. What should the specs be on the step up and step down transformer and what should the AWG be? For the next two locations can I use a 3 phase step up step down transformer for only two locations with one phase unused or should I just use a single phase step up step down transformer for each location?
