It's outside the scope of this answer to go into the theory, but a 3 phase motor by convention normally rotates anticlockwise when viewed from the 'driven' end.

To check phase sequence, the usual method is to use a phase sequence indicator. Originally these were like a miniature three phase motor encased in a hand-held device. If the flying leads were connected RYB, BRY, or YBR, the disc in the psi would rotate anticlockwise. If the flying leads were connected RBY, BYR, or YRB the disc would rotate clockwise. Nowadays, the mechanical aspect of the phase sequence indicator has been repalced with solid state devices that indicate on one of two leds if the sequence is c/w or ac/w.

To check phase sequence you look for which phase out of the three phases peaks first. You could probably put each phase on an oscilloscope and see which one peaks first. Phase sequence is usually taken as positive anticlockwise from the reference voltage ( the phase that peaks the first).
Thanks for the feedback!

How do you check number of poles on a three phase induction motor?

Name plate data should indicate the number of poles / RPM. For speed N= (120 x Frequency) / Number of poles Using this formula you can find out the number of poles, provided

How do you check three phase motor windings?

You use a megger. This allows you to check what the condition of the insulation of the motor windings are.   An ohms check on each phase should be an easy way if it reads O

How negative phase sequence occoures?

If electrical systems were all balanced the expression negative-sequence would never be needed! Fortunately, the solution for balanced systems is to convert all parameters to

What is the importance of phase sequence?

The importance of phase sequence is related to the direction of rotation for a motor.   The three phases set up a rotating magnetic field, which runs the motor. Reverse

How check polarity of three phase transformer?

You don't. 'Polarity' applies to single-phase transformers, and knowledge of polarity is an essential requirement before you can connect three single-phase transformers to for

How calculate zero phase sequence capacitance of transformer?

In my experience, the zero sequence of transformers is not calculated, it is directly tested following ANSII/IEEE guidlines for Z1no, Z2no, and Z1ns tests (for three phase, th

What is the purpose of the Frame Check Sequence field in a Data Link frame trailer?

The purpose of the FCS field is to transmit the extra checksum characters added to a frame in "xyz" protocol for error detection. The most popular algorithm I've used is the C

What is a sequence?

    A group of numbers in order. Usually, when talking about sequences, people talk about infinite sequences: a sequence that never ends (it has a first number, a seco
