Default Traffo connection QS

How is the best to connect the primary when I measure 226V mains?

What is the yellow/green - it says:"blind winding" for?

First thing first....
Check continuity of ALL wires and put wires into groups have continuity...this way seperating the windings....
Sounds like this wire "may" be a shielding wire with only one end terminated.... You need to see if wire has any continuity to any other group of wires...if not, then it may be a faraday winding for shielding..

Thanks for reply Chris!

I have checked for continuity and y/g wire is separate of all the rest. I guess than it is like you said Faraday winding for shielding. Should I connect it to some ground?
Next I have checked the resistance between white,orange and black. It reads: w/b=29,1R ;w/o=30,7R.

Anybody?

Should I connect the yellow green shelding wire to mains ground or...?
White is marked 0, Black 220, Orange 230. I have checked the resistance between white,orange and black. It reads: w/b=29,1R ;w/o=30,7R.
