Star or WYE (Y) Connection

In this method of inter-connection the similar ends either the ‘start’ or ‘finish’ are joined together at point N. This common point N is called star point or neutral point. Ordinarily only three wires are carried to the external circuit giving 3-phase, 3-wire star connected system but sometimes a fourth-wire, known as neutral wire is… 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 »
