Example text

Most larger buildings are served by three-phase power services (discussed in the next section), typically with four wires, three of which are hot and one that is neutral (grounded at the service entrance or distribution transformer). The three hot wires have ac voltages that are 120 out of phase with each other, as shown in Figure 2-11. Three phase (abbreviated to 3) power is used because it is convenient for motors (it causes a naturally rotating field that starts a motor turning in the right direction) and it reduces the amount of current required for the same amount of power.

An across-the-line magnetic starter for a three-phase motor is shown in Figure 2-20. To start the motor, a voltage is placed across the contactor coil (basically a relay device). Provided the overload relays are not tripped, the coil will energize and close the three contacts, connecting the incoming power to the motor. The motor will start operation in a direction. e. a fan blade or pump impeller: if the rotation is backward, simply swap two of the three-phase wires and re-terminate the contacts, and the motor direction will reverse.

Three phase (abbreviated to 3) power is used because it is convenient for motors (it causes a naturally rotating field that starts a motor turning in the right direction) and it reduces the amount of current required for the same amount of power. 3 Transformers and Power Services A power transformer is a device that is used primarily to convert one ac voltage to another. Based on the principle that alternating current in an inductor electro-magnetically induces an electrical potential in adjacent conductors, transformers can interconnect two circuits without any electrical connection between them.
