How much does a sun powered sailboat cost?
what is a sun powered sailboat? sailboats use the wind to move! some boats have electrical systems that need electricity so they will buy solar panels as an eco friendly, convenient way to power their onboard systems, but I've never heard of a solar powered sailboat. if it used a solar powered motor, it wouldn't be a sailboat, (i mean, it would, but it wouldn't sail, it would motor)
Asked in Yachts
Are a yacht and a sailboat the same?
No, a yacht and a sailboat are not necessarily the same. The sailboat is, as its name implies, a watercraft that moves under wind power. The yacht, on the other hand, could be a sailboat, but it does not have to be. The yacht is a larger vessel (usually over 30 feet in length) used for recreation, and the yacht can be (and usually is) classified as either a sailing vessel or a motor craft.

What is the cause of fluctuation in amps and pf in a 6000hp syncrhonous motor?
When the line voltages of a polyphase motor induction motor are not equal, unbalanced currents in the stator windings will result. A small percentage voltage unbalance will result in a much larger percentage current unbalance. Consequently, the temperature rise of the motor operating at a particular load and percentage voltage unbalance will be greater than the motor operating under the same conditions with balanced voltages. NEMA Standards MG 1-1998, 12.46 recommends against operating a motor with a voltage unbalance greater than 1%. This will increase operating temperature, vibration, nuisance trips and failures.
