Best Answer

Electric steamers are available for home use. The answer is to look at the machine's nameplate to find out the voltage required.

I used to work for a company that made a steam generator for the upholstery and jewelry industries, those were 120 Volt glorified water heaters.

Remember, WATTS are Watts no matter what voltage is used by the unit. This is another question that sounds like a homework question, if it is, study OHM's Law and understand it. It is easier than you think!

How do you Explain the difference between change in supply and change in quantity supplied?

A change in supply means that the supply curve has shifted. With a stable demand, this will result in a change in the quantity supplied but also a change in price. A change in only quantity supplied without a change in supply would require a horizontal supply curve. Alternatively a change in quantity supplied and price may occur if there is a shift of the demand curve.

An increase in supply will cause?

An increase in supply will cause a decrease in demand. The value of what is being supplied would also drop.

What type of whole house generator will supply power to a large home?

A 5500 Watt generator would be ideal when you're looking to supply power to your whole house. If your house is fairly large though, you'll need an even greater whole house generator.

Is a gas generator better than electric?

The purpose of a generator is to generate electricity. An electric generator would be redundant. It would need electricity to make electricity and when there is a power outage there is not electricity.

How would three phase power be supplied to a DC disc brake?

Why would a generator produce high kvar output?

A generator would be forced to produce a high output kVAr if it has a lot of non-linear loads connected to it i.e. fluorescent lighting, switchmode power supplied equipment (PCs, old servers etc).

What voltage supplied by Florida Power and Light would be the least expensive to run a 3 phase 750 KW motor?

Motors are rated in horsepower, not KW. A 750,000 watt motor, at 220 volt, would be a 1005 H.P. motor and about the size of a large pickup truck! I suspect you're asking about a 750 KW generator. You must not only supply the correct voltage and amperage to operate it, you must have a 3 phase power supply. Unless you're in a commercial bldg. you likely don't have 3 phase power and can't operate that generator.

Can a motor supply electricity?

Yes and no. If a motor was supplying electricity to a system, then it would be called a generator. The device, while unexcited, is both a generator AND a motor, but until it excites a system (a generator) or is excited by a system (a motor) does it becomes one or the other.

Why we need to use generator?

If you have an electric generator what do you have to do to supply electricity to the grid?

It will depend very much on your local supply company. You will be supplying to the local system at your house voltage (unless you are going in for a fully commercial supply) so you are not going straight to the grid in any case. The local company would certainly want to know what you are doing, for safety reasons. Suppose they had isolated your house supply for work, and you connected your generator at that time, you would make the house supply live again and endanger workers on the lines, so you have to be controlled.

Can a 6000 watt generator power a 25hp ac electric motor?

No it what work 756 watts = 1 HP. You would need a generator that can supply 756 x 25 = 18900 watts.

Provide an example of an economic good whose producer would increase the quantity supplied if the price were to go up?

Oil, is an example of an economic good whose producer would increase the quantity supplied if price were to go up. The oil producing nations (o.p.e.c.) can control how much oil is supplied to the international market, and benefits by keeping the supply low, but when the price goes up due to demand going up, then they can increase the supply at the high price. (yahoo answers has this as an answer and it fits)

Is a 3 phase better for a home generator than a single phase?

No, your home service would have to be a three phase distribution to utilize the use of the generator correctly. Homes wires in North America use the standard single phase distribution.Another AnswerIn some European countries, three-phase supplies to homes are quite quite common. My home, here in Cyprus, for example, has a three-phase supply and a three-phase distribution panel that distributes the load between the three lines. So, for a property with a three-phase supply, if you wish to provide standby power to the entire property, then a three-phase generator would be required but would be an expensive option. However, for most people, this would be unnecessary, as they would usually only rely on a standby generator to temporarily supply specific single-phase loads, such as refrigerators, deep freezers, etc.

Is a light bulb a source of an electric current?

No. The term SOURCE means that it is a supply of electrical energy, and a light bulb does not supply electricity, it uses it. A battery, generator, fuel cell, or solar cell would be a source.
