Does 22 formulas seem like too many? Look close and you'll
find a pattern. They are all variants of only 6 formulas.
When you go from DC to 1 phase, you have to factor in Power Factor (PF). Then when you move up to 3 wire, single phase, you simply double your voltage relative to ground. A 3 phase system feeds your motor from 3 different wires with phases seperated by 120 degrees so you use a multiplier of 1.73 rather then 2. |
