EET 103 Chapter 3 (Lecture 1) Three Phase System

INTRODUCTION TO THREE PHASE SYSTEM In general, three phase systems are preferred over single phase systems for the transmission of the power system for many reasons, including the following • Thinner conductors can be used to transmit the same k. VA at the same voltage, which reduces the amount of copper required (typically about 25% less) and turn reduces construction and maintenance costs.

• The lighter lines are easier to install and the supporting structures can be less massive and farther apart. • In general, most larger motors are three phase because they are essentially self starting and do not require a special design or additional starting circuitry.

Three phase voltages A 3 phase generator basically consists of a rotating magnet (called the rotor) surrounded by a stationary winding (called the stator). Three separate windings or coils with terminals a - a’, b - b’ and c - c’ are physically placed 120 o apart around the stator.

Generated Voltages The three phase generator can supply power to both single phase and three phase loads
