The physical internal windings between single phase and three phase motors makes this an impossibility That being said money can make anything happen. Depending on the amount of money you want to spend to make this happen there is a device on the market called a VFD ( Variable Frequency Drive). On the three phase input terminals you apply your single phase voltage. On the output terminals you connect your three phase motor. When run in this configuration there is an internal switch that has to be changed to let the VFD know that it should be looking for only two lines on the input to be hot. Otherwise the VFD thinks that there is a line loss on the three phase input terminals and the unit will not start. <<>> You can make a phase converter with a couple extra motors. Wire up a 120V single phase motor and couple it to a 3 phase motor. This turns the 3 phase motor into a generator for you to run to whatever equipment the 3 phase motor is. Although if you had a single phase motor you probable don't need a 3 phase motor. == == <<>> yes! you will have to buy a phase converter. <<>> yes, it is possible to this with a rotary phase converter . one manufacturer is "phase master" (as an example only, not wishing to promote any brand). these are not cheap units and it may be more cost effective to purchase a single phase (220V.) replacement motor . the overall efficiency (operational costs) would be better too . a rotary phase converter is usually the "last choice on the list" .

How do you use a one phase motor in place of a three phase motor?

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.


What kinds of motors are used in household washing machines and refrigerators?

They use a Single-Phase AC motor


How is it possible that a Chicken Rotisserie that uses 208v 3 phase can have a motor that uses 208v 1 phase?

Two scenarios are that the motor could be a three phase motor. These three phase motors are manufactured in smaller sizes. The other scenario is that the motor is a 208/220 volt single phase motor. It will operate on 208 volts by taking two legs of the three phase supply for its operation.

What household current do you need to power 460 volt motor?

There is no household current with which you can power a 460 volt motor.Normal US household power is 120/240VAC split phase. (Other countries have different configurations, but the answer remains the same.) Without a transformer, and a substantial power flow, you are not going to develop the voltage necessary to run a 460 volt motor. Even if you could generate that voltage, you still only have one phase available, and most 460 volt motors require three phase power.You could do this with an inverter, or a motor-generator set, but to be blunt, you are asking about a commercial application, not a household application.

It is possible to use it


Can you operate single phase motor from drive?

yes it is possible if you provide full details


Is 3 phase motor run on 1 phase supply?

No. That would be a single phase motor.


How do you determine if my electrical panel is three phase?

To determine if the electrical panel is three phase or single phase look at the main breaker or fused disconnect. If the breaker is a two pole breaker then the panel is a single phase panel. If the main breaker is a three pole then the service is a three phase system.


Why no need the neutral in 3 phase induction motor?

A three phase motor uses phase to phase voltage in its operation.


Can a 3 phase motor be converted into a single phase motor?

yes,


What is difference between single and three phase motors?

A single phase motor with the same horsepower as a 3 phase motor will be much larger than the 3 phase motor.


How do you reverse a 3 phase motor to single phase?

If you are asking whether you can connect a three-phase motor to a single-phase system, then the answer is no.


When changing phase rotation of a 3 phase motor is this done at the switchboard?

The phase rotation of motor should be always done from motor side i.e The motor terminal box.


You keep burning out the ground plug on 220volt 3 phase plugs?

This can be caused by a number of things, none of them good. Current leaking or going to ground is a short circuit. If the supply 3 phase breaker isn't tripping, it sounds like current is "leaking" to ground. This is likely a connection problem in the device which the plug is powering, or if the device is employing a 3 phase motor, the motor may be going bad. This can be checked by "ohming out" the motor windings. If this problem is occurring in more than one three phase plug supplied from the same panel, it's possible that the earth ground from the panel is inadequate. This is tested with a megger with the entire panel shut down. Again if it's occurring with just one plug, the problem is likely in the device being powered.


What will happened if one phase loss in three phase motor?

if one phase of an 3 phase induction motor is damaged then it will become single phasing. Due to this the motor may burn out,if motor is running at their full load


How do you check single phase motor winding?

Single phase motor winding is often checked just by listening to the noise that the motor is making. An experienced person can tell if the motor is working at single phase or double phase.


What is purpose of three phase induction motor?

It is to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy as efficiently as possible.


How do you reverse a three phase motor?

To reverse a three phase motor, you simply swap two of the phase conductors.


Can you run a 3 phase induction motor on a single phase system?

No, you can not run a 3 phase induction motor on a single phase system.


How to convert 220 volt 3 phase from single phase?

With a single phase motor driving a 3 phase generator. It is possible to do it electronically, but that would more expensive and the more the power requirement is, the more expensive it would be.


How is the capacitor size calculated for a single phase motor?

A single phase motor does not actually require a capacitor. This device is only needed when a split phase motor is utilised. A split phase motor needs a device to regulate the power factor associated with the split phase.


What are the disadvantages of a two phase AC motor over a three phase and single phase AC motor?

The main drawback is that two-phase systems are archaic, and you are unlikely to find one with which to supply a two-phase motor.
