Is there something in the PSU that demands 3 phase?  That's what 380
would be isn't it?  I would have thought there would be a way to convert
it.  Like find a different power supply, and maybe customize a power
supply.  It seems that if you can figure out what power the different
parts needs an electrician should be able to do the rest.  Though it is
probably cheaper to just get the proper power installed.
