Does re-phasing reduce required tourqe input?

Sorry compleste newbie here,

By rephasing do you mean running on 2 phases instead of 3? I tested this with my wind turbine using an electric motor to spin it up. The torque required to turn the generator was slightly less and the power output was comparable to the 3 phase result which surprised me.
