Single Phase To 3 Phase By Using Cap


Recommended Posts



this is a cct to start a three phase motor with a single phase supply and using a capacitor...

to charge the cap with 220V AC at 50 HZ, which is my supply, I have done the following calculations...


C = 1 / 2 * PI * F * XC

VC = 220 V

XC = 220 / 2 * PI * F

C = 4.55 mF


is all this correct? I just want to know how to calculate the capacitor value actually...
