Some Electrical Calculators That Use 3 Phase Electric Motors

How much power does it consume? How much is it going to cost? What is the warranty on the motor? What is the return policy? There are also considerations for the installation costs and any parts you may need to purchase to complete the job.

Calculate the maximum power that the electric motor consumes while at operation. The equation to do this is W = AC(sqrt 3) where A is amperes, V is amperes per minute, and AC is alternating current. Thus, W is the maximum power used in amps while the AC is constant. For instance, if the AC is steady current, then V will be equal to zero and the output of the 3-phase motor will be the maximum that can be produced.

3 Phase Electric Motor

You will need a known value for the voltage that you want your 3 phase electric motor to provide. It is called the DC input voltage. You can calculate this by subtracting the DC from your known power supply voltage. The resulting figure will be the DC output voltage. To get a related reading for your motor, divide the DC input into the AC power supply and the voltage of your home’s electrical system.

Your new 3 phase induction motor will be able to provide the electrical energy you need at your desired location. There are two types of induction motors; direct and alternating. The difference between them is in the manner in which the energy is supplied. In the first type, electricity flows from the source through a permanent magnet to the coil. In the second type, an alternating current from the main electric grid or power plant is induced into the rotor.

A Simple Windmill

The operation of these electric motors is similar to that of a simple windmill. They need to be turned on manually by pulling up a wire. Once started, these motors will produce a very small amount of torque. Once their rotation is completed, this will generate a large amount of force due to the alternating current. These motors are usually placed on lines in power plants or other electric generating stations. This is to compensate for the loss of kinetic energy during the generation of electricity in your area.

One more important requirement of a 3 phase induction motor is that the magnet wire must also be insulated. This is to reduce the friction that can occur. The problem with a naked iron wire is that its weight can deplete its energy and cause it to lose its magnetic field. It can also get hot and short out the motor. The best solution here is to add a piece of insulation to the magnet wire, thus protecting it from the elements.

A Result Of The Motion Of The Rotor

When it comes to the three-phase motor’s construction, there are two kinds that we can talk about here. There is the primary side or the one which is usually turned on in order to produce electricity and the second is the secondary side or the one that produces the electricity as a result of the motion of the rotor.

The relevant electrical data that is needed to determine which one of the two is meant for what is to be powered by this type of motor is its voltage, current, power rating and its relative resistance to different forces.


In the general rule, this is how the three phase induction motor works. There is an induction rotor that goes through a coil that is thinned out. Inside this coil, a magnet wire is placed. The magnet wire acts like the small blade of a fan. As the magnet wire moves, it causes the electric current to flow within the coil. When the magnet wire moves, this causes the rest of the coil to bend, which results in the amount of current produced.
