It generates a 3rd phase for machines or welders or motors in general which are 3 phase instead of single. Not to be over simple but usually you have 2 incoming 110v lines providing 220v. Three phase is 3 of these, since most people do not have this coming in to their place it allows you a way to create the 3rd. Hope that helps.What is that thing for?
