Can buck-boost transformers be used on three-phase systems as well as single phase systems?

Yes. A single unit is used to buck or boost single phase voltage — two or three units are used to buck or boost three phase voltage.

The number of units to be used in a three – phase installation depends on the number of wires in the supply line. If the three-phase supply is 4 wire Y, use three buck-boost transformers. If the 3-phase supply is 3 wire Y (neutral not available), use two buck-boost transformers.
