heating loads such as electric boilers or space
heating may be connected to 3 phase systems.
Electric lighting may also be similarly connected.
These types of loads do not require the revolving
magnetic field characteristic of 3 phase motors
but take advantage of the higher voltage and power
level usually associated with 3 phase
rectifier systems may have 3 phase inputs; the
resulting DC current is easier to filter (smooth) than
the output of a single-phase rectifier. Such 3 phase rectifiers may be used for battery charging,
electrolysis processes such as aluminum production, or
for operation of DC motors.
interesting example of a 3 phase load is the
electric arc furnace used in steel making and in
refining of ores.
much of Europe stoves are designed to allow for a 3 phase feed. Usually the individual heating units
are connected between phase and neutral to allow for
connection to a 1 phase supply where this is all
that is available.
There are many options for 3 phase
generators. These range from small portable
3 phase generators to large
industrial diesel generators. There are many
different fuel options to choose from and your
application will help determine what is best for your
companies need. Propane generators and
generators are the most popular because of the
availability of these common fuels.
Phase Loads from 3 Phase Power Generated on 1 Phase
are many places and instances where 1 phase power is
all that is available, or where the power company
wants to charge tens, or even hundreds of thousands of
dollars to install and supply 3 phase power.
When this is the case a quality 3
phase generating phase converter can be run on 1
phase to power 3 phase equipment of any type.

the advantages of 3 phase motors, and other 3 phase
equipment, make it smart and easily worthwhile to
convert single-phase power to generate 3 phase with a Rotary
Phase Converter. Small
and large customers, such as residential, rural
businesses, or farm properties may not have access to
a 3 phase supply, or may not want to pay for the extra
cost of a 3 phase service, but may still wish to use 3
phase equipment. Such 3
phase converters may also allow the frequency (see
converters) to be varied allowing for different
equipment frequency requirements (50Hz, 60Hz, 400Hz,
etc.) and also for motor speed control (VFDs).
Some locomotives are driven by 3-phase motors with 3
phase converters converted from the incoming supply of
either DC or 1 phase AC.
two main types of 1 phase to 3 phase converters are Rotary
Phase Converters and Static
Phase Converters. Click here to read more
