What is the difference between a 1-phase and 3-phase connection?

In the Netherlands, both 1-phase and 3-phase connections are used. With a 1-phase connection, one power wire goes from the main cable (under the street) to the relevant building. With a 3-phase connection, there are three power wires. A 3-phase connection can therefore deliver more power than a 1-phase connection. With a 3-phase connection you can use several larger devices at the same time. The standard voltage is 230 volts.
