Is start required for a 3 phase motor?
3-phase induction motors are self starting but start is required for 3-phase synchronus motor.
In three phase you can, in single phase you can not use a 3 pole contactor. A single phase induction motor has two sets of coils and a centrifugal start switch. The start winding is in series with the start switch. The start winding provides a rotating magnetic field in one direction enabling the motor to start. The motor can be reversed by reversing the connections of either the start winding or the run winding…
What would be the horse power required in a 3-phase motor to replace a .5 horsepower single phase motor.?
A 3 phase motor should not usually have a run capacitor, It could have 3 phase correction capacitors to reduce the out of phase current draw from the supply but even this is not common except where very large currents are involved, or where the utility company is penalising a customer for phase correction. The start and or run capacitors in a single phase motor are simulating an additional phase to make the motor start…
zma da ghan mata sa raze Even if I do not understand the language used above I still believe that the answe above is very irrelevant, to say the least. Answer: 1. Resistance start single phase motor 2. Capacitor start single phase motor 3. Capacitor start and run single phase motor 4. Capacitor start capacitor run single phase motor
Yes, by using a DOL Starter, which gives a controlled "soft-start" for the motor even though it is always connected in delta configuration. In this type of starting a 3-phase motor, full voltage is applied to the motor through relays and contactors. Its is the most common type of 3-phase motor starter used. DOL means Direct On-Line starter.
In a three phase motor each leg (3 phases) in the down cycle alternating at 1/60 per second servers as a neutral, you are only required to ground (green) the frame of the motor for safety. This is similar In a single phase motor wired for 240v (2 phases) the same thing happens and you are only required to ground (green) the frame of the motor for safety. From: Ken F
