    Hello everybody,

    I have made a prototype generator that has three phases output 380 volts each of them. It is AC full sinusoidal phase. I want to know what is the simplest way which can convert all that three phases to three phases output for European requirements without loosing the power???

    Is the gen frequency 50Hz?

    Is it 380v line-to-line, or line-to-neutral? There will always be losses for any ac-ac conversion, though they're usually quite small. A transformer will decrease the voltage while increasing the current, or vice versa, and the power will stay roughly the same (the windings will dissipate some power, often in the form of heat, but it's fairly negligible).

    yes it is 50Hz and the measurement is done 380 volt line to neutral

    You need to lower your output voltage to 230V +/- 10% Phase to Neutral, 415V Phase to Phase @ 50Hz.
