Single phase and 3 phase power comparison

As a new electrical student or a common man this questions comes in mind that why we prefer 3 phase power system. In recent years 3 phase electric wiring has become common and mostly used worldwide for power generation, power transmission, distribution and three phase engines or motors. A single-phase electric power supply is the… Read More »

Electric Motors | Types History and Classification

What is an Electric Motor? An electric motor is an electromagnetic device that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy by applying the law of electromagnetic induction. The first ever electric motor was invented by William Sturgeon in 1832 which was not promoted as for commercial purposes. First commercially successful electric motor was created in 1873.… Read More »

Single Phase & Three Phase Power Electric Circuits & System

Single Phase power circuits Single phase electric power or circuit refers to the distribution of alternating current electric power using a system in which all the voltages of the supply vary in corresponding exactly. Single-phase distribution is used when loads are mostly used for the purpose of lighting and heating which can also be for… Read More »

Introduction To Induction & AC Electric Motor | Working Principle & Types

An induction motor is an AC electric motor in which the electric current in the rotor of electric motor needed to produce torque is obtained by electromagnetic induction from the magnetic field of the stator winding. One of the most common electrical motor used in most applications is known as Induction Motor. Most commonly used motors… Read More »
