The voltage hasn’t really changed, just the terminology. My understanding is that the power company is supposed to supply 240v minus an allowable power drop, usually 5-10%. The motors on many pieces of equipment list the rating as 230v. Whether it’s called 220, 230 or 240, if it’s single phase, it’s the same service type. I still call it 220 out of habit from working for an old school electrician in high school.
