Is it possible to convert single phase AC into three phase AC and how?
Yes, you can convert single phase AC into three phase AC with a phase converter.
No, it is not possible to convert a 2.4 kw single phase appliance to a 9kw 3 phase appliance. Single phase can not be converted to three phase with out considerable cost involved.
We can convert single phase kva to three phase kva by this formula. Three phase Kva = Single phase KVa/3*2.64 By : Muhammad Usman
Houses generally run on single phase power. It would not make sense to convert single phase to three phase to run a house. Please restate the question.
it convert the single phase in to three phase.
Three phase output means three single phase outputs, so to "convert" three phase output to single phase, simply use just one phase or two phases depending on what voltage is supplied and what voltage you want. For example, a 120/208V three phase generator will give you 120V single phase-to-neutral or 208V single-phase (line-to-line) using one or two phases respectively.
you can use a rotophase
usually they say its possible 2 convert a 2phase supply to 3 phase.if its so then how?
Any 2 legs of a three phase system is considered single phase. Three phase legs, L1, L2, L3. Single phase options, L1 - L2, L2 - L3, L3 - L1.
Single phase can't be turned into 3-phase by any reasonable means. But on the other hand resistance heating is fairly straight forward. If only the fuse rating is high enough it might be possible to rewire a 3-phase heater to run from a single-phase source.
If you take two wires from a three phase system, you will have the equivalent of single phase.
If the 3 phase service has a 4th wire (neutral), then yes, just connect one of the three phase wires and neutral for a single phase circuit.
Rectifer, it could be single-phase or three-phase
Any two legs of a three phase supply are classed as single phase. L1 - L2, L2 - L3 and L3 - L1.
Three phase is not converted to single phase. On a 240 volt three phase service 240 single phase can be taken from it. Any two legs from a three phase service is classed as single phase. L1 - L2 = 240 volts. The same is true with L2 - L3 = 240 volts and L3 - L1 = 240 volts.
You cannot convert a single-phase transformer into a three-phase transformer. However, you can connect three individual (but identically specified) single-phase transformers to create a three-phase 'transformer bank'. The primary and secondary connections of the transformer bank can be connected as required: e.g. delta-star, etc. If necessary (e.g. in an emergency), two single-phase transformers could also be used to create a three-phase transformer bank, using an 'open' (e.g. 'open delta') connection -but their combined rating will… Read More
Electric power is measured in watts. It does not matter if it is single phase or three phase. All things being equal, for the same load, the power measured in a single phase circuit or a three phase circuit, will be the same.
You don't need to 'convert' three phase to single phase! A single-phase supply is obtained between any line conductor and the neutral conductor, or between any pair of line conductors -the choice depends on the voltage requirements.
If using L-L voltages, the three phase power = V*I*sqrt(3) If using L-N voltages, the single phase power = V*I To convert single phase to three phase, multiply by 3.
Your question should read, 'How do you convert three-phase to single-phase?' Single-phase can be obtained by connecting a single-phase load between any two of the three line conductors, or between any line conductor and the neutral conductor -depending on the level of voltage you require. There is no conversion necessary, any two legs of a three phase system will give you single phase. Take a 3 phase 208 volt grounded wye system. Any two of… Read More
You can't. Currents in three-phase systems are measured in each of the individual line conductors.
A three phase supply can supply a single phase device, usually by connecting between one live wire and neutral in a 4-wire system, or between two live wires in a 3-wire system. It is important to check that the voltage is correct in both cases. If there is more than one single-phase load it is usual to share the loads out between the three phases to maintain balance as far as possible.
A phase converter converts single-phase, alternating current power to three-phase power. There are two general types, static converters and rotary phase converters. A basic form of rotary phase converter is a single-phase electrical motor with its shaft coupled to a three-phase alternator. A static phase converter converts single-phase power to three-phase power by using electronic switching. They typically convert the single-phase, alternating current to direct current and then electronically synthesize three phase power output for… Read More
To use a single/one phase motor instead of a three phase motor is possible if you have a three phase power supply as you will only need to tap one of the three phases together with neutral and an earthwire, however to use a three phase motor instead of a single phase will require the provision of three phase power supply.
By consumption, I presume you mean electrical load. To do so, you will need a phase converter.
No, a transformer will not change a single phase system to a three phase system. Three-phase power is derived from the generating source. Transformers provide for power distribution and isolation, not phase alteration.
In order to convert from single phase to three phase, you need an inverter or some kind of motor-generator. Variable Frequency Drives for electric motor speed control now feature single phase input with three phase output for motor loads up to 3HP. Good for the home shop where you got a deal on some equipment but lack 3 phase power. For instance, Google this: ATV12H075F1
Single phase has one phase. Three phase has three phases.
How do you convert three phase into single phase that the current it takes will split on each of the three phase?
Generally when dealing with three phase systems, voltage will be listed as phase to phase voltage and current will be the current flowing down a single conductor (not the phase to phase current). If I'm understanding your question correctly, you do not need to do any conversion. The current flowing through the conductor is the current flowing through the conductor.
I'm not sure what your question means as a single phase supply is normally one of the phases and the return/neutral, not all 3 phases converted to one, plus return.
Why Scott connection is used to convert three phase to two phase why cant you take two lines from three phase circuit?
In a two-phase connection, the phases are displaced by 90 degrees. Two lines (not 'phases') of a three-phase system will provide a single-phase supply, not a two-phase supply.
Where can you buy something portable and small that converts single phase to three phase electricity?
Three phase electricity is generally used when you have a high power device, such as a motor, that benefits from the three phase design. Since this involves high power, there will be no "portable and small" device to convert from single phase to three phase. Certainly, you could have a small electronic inverter, or a motor generator set, but to make sense, you are not talking "portable and small".
A three phase supply can provide three single-phase outputs.
There is no such thing as a two phase instrument. There is only single phase and three phase. You can only have: single phase/ one pole single phase/ two pole three phase/ three pole
It is to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy as efficiently as possible.
Yes, there is a difference between single phase and three phase circuits.
A single-phase supply is obtained between any two line conductors or between a line and neutral conductor of a three-phase supply. To obtain a three-phase supply from a single-phase source is far more difficult, and requires additional equipment.
You can take three separate single-phase circuits from a 3-ph generator. Just use one of the live wires plus the neutral to make a single-phase supply. <<>> A three phase generator does not have to be converted to single phase. In electrical terminology any two legs from a three phase system are classed as single phase. No matter what voltage the generator is producing, L1 - L2, L2 - L3, L3 - L1 are classed… Read More
Not knowing the design, I would say no, at least not easily. The 3-phase system can deliver three times the power under normal conditions.
An auto transformer can be either single phase or three phase.
You Don't. 440volt 3-phase is actually 480 volts, taking a single phase gives 277Volts single phase. To get single phase 440 you would use one leg of three phase 440/760 three phase power.
You need three phase power to get three phase power. If you only have one phase, you will need some kind of inverter or motor-generator set. Generally, however, the demands of a three phase motor will exceed the capability and efficiency of these "tricky" solutions. It is best to simply contact your local power company and have them provide the proper three phase power to your facility.
Amps * Volts * 1000 = KVA (for single-phase power) Amps * Volts * 1000 * 1.73 = KVA (for three-phase balanced power)
The same way the electric company does it: connect your appliance between one of the three lines and the neutral wire.
If you are asking whether single-phase transformers can be used in place of a three-phase transformer, then, yes, they can! Three identical single-phase transformers can be connected to form what is known as a 'three-phase transformer bank'.
Does a 2 horsepower rotary converter plug into 120 single phase and convert it to plug in a 3 phase outlet?
All my experience with rotary phase converters have been in converting 240 volt single phase into 240 volt three phase. They all were hard wired into their respective systems, so my answer is no.
Any load that needs three legs from a three phase system can not be considered single phase. Single phase from a three phase system only needs a connection to two legs.
There is no such thing as a two phase load any more. Any two legs from a three phase system are classed as single phase. If this single phase load is connected across the generator it will induce an imbalance in the output voltages of the generator. This is one reason that single phase loads on a three phase generator should be shifted around to find the best possible balance.
Not without having all the coils re-wound which would probably cost more than buying a single-phase motor to do the job. You can alternatively use a phase converter, that converts single phase to three, to run your motor. You can make these (plans on the internet), or purchase a converter (more expensive), but easier than re-winding the motor which is impractical).
Single phase inherently requires less equipment (it's cheaper). Three phase motors are more efficient than single phase.
Two phase systems are no more. They were replaced by the three phase system which is what we use today. If you are talking about drawing 220 volts from a three phase system then all that has to be done is use any two of the three phase legs. When this is type of connection is used it is known as taking single phase from a three phase system. In North America a common three… Read More
