    Steelman method is the same idea in reverse.

    Instead of creating 2 phase via the 90 deg phase shift and then converting to 3 phase with the Scott connection, the motor is converted to a 2 phase...

    You don't even need to buy them with a particular power factor, synchronous motors can have the PF adjusted by changing the excitation, the current in the field coils.

    Amps is what runs the motor. Voltage is just the "push" behind the amps that causes the current to flow. So if the current in all three "legs" is equal, the motor should be well-balanced and...

    Ja, it is the long way around the barn, in some ways. For a constant load pump motor a half mile from anywhere out in a field, it's a very decent solution, though.
