Can a Single Phase Transformer be used on a Three Phase source?

Yes. Any single phase transformer can be used on a three phase source by connecting the primary leads to any two wires of a three phase system, regardless of whether the source is three phase 3-wire or  three phase 4-wire. The transformer output will be single phase.
