Can I move my step-down transformer and use it as a step-up transformer?

ABB's answer

Theoretically, a step-down transformer can also be used in reverse, to increase a voltage level. However, the system requirements and in particular the short circuit withstand requirements are likely to be quite different. Before operating a step down transformer in step up mode, you should consult with the manufacturer to determine if there are any potential limitaitons.
