Single phase power has a sine wave voltage that crosses zero before reversing its polarity. In the region near the zero-crossing there is not much power. At zero there is none at all. So single phase loads often need some trickery to deliver output in this area. Often it is just the inertia of the motor...

How is electricity distributed to your home?

The electricity from power plants travels for many miles. It travels over long wires called transmission lines. These transmission lines are held in the sky away from the ground by giant wood or metal transmission towers. Another way it is transmitted is through underground cables which can go under rivers, lakes and even seas. When the electricity gets near to your town, it goes into a substation. A substation often has many wires and metal containers in it and is surrounded by a...
