Where do you find a VFD capable of sending 20amps at 220v for that price?

Is the 5hp motor on yours really rated at 20A?!?

why not spend less and use a static phase convertor?

That would be my absolute last resort, and I’d rather swap motors than go that route. As mentioned, the SPC will reduce the motors power by roughly 1/3, and run the motor unbalanced – causing it to run hot and therefore more likely to burn up prematurely. Both conditions make it an extremely bad choice for a DC.
