3 Three phase Circuits An AC generator designed to develop a single sinusoidal voltage for each rotation of the shaft (rotor) is referred to as a single-phase AC generator. If the number of coils on the rotor is increased in a specified manner, the result is a Polyphase AC generator, which develops more than one AC phase voltage per rotation of the rotor In general, three-phase systems are preferred over single-phase systems for the transmission of power for many reasons. 1. Thinner conductors can be used to transmit the same kVA at the same voltage, which reduces the amount of copper required (typically about 25% less). 2. The lighter lines are easier to install, and the supporting structures can be less massive and farther apart. 3. Three-phase equipment and motors have preferred running and starting characteristics compared to single-phase systems because of a more even flow of power to the transducer than can be delivered with a single-phase supply. 4. In general, most larger motors are three phase because they are essentially self- starting and do not require a special design or additional starting circuitry.

5 Eeng 224 Three-phase Generator The three-phase generator has three induction coils placed 120° apart on the stator. The three coils have an equal number of turns, the voltage induced across each coil will have the same peak value, shape and frequency.

9 Balanced Three phase Loads a) Wye-connected load b) Delta-connected load A Balanced load has equal impedances on all the phases
10 Eeng 224 General Delta to Wye conversion Delta to Wye Wye to Delta works the same way for complex impedances
11 Eeng 224 Three phase Connections Both the three phase source and the three phase load can be connected either Wye or DELTA. We have 4 possible connection types. Y-Y connection Y-Δ connection Δ-Δ connection Δ-Y connection Balanced Δ connected load is more common. Y connected sources are more common.

13 Eeng 224 Balanced Wye-wye Connection Phase voltages are: V an, V bn and V cn. The three conductors connected from a to A, b to B and c to C are called LINES. The voltage from one line to another is called a LINE voltage Line voltages are: V ab, V bc and V ca Magnitude of line voltages is √3 times the magnitude of phase voltages. V L = √3 V p Line current I n add up to zero. Neutral current is zero: I n = -(I a + I b + I c )= 0
14 Eeng 224 Balanced Wye-wye Connection Magnitude of line voltages is √3 times the magnitude of phase voltages. V L = √3 V p Line current I n add up to zero. Neutral current is zero: I n = -(I a + I b + I c )= 0

16 Eeng 224 Single Phase Equivalent of Balanced Y-Y Connection Balanced three phase circuits can be analyzed on “per phase “ basis.. We look at one phase, say phase a and analyze the single phase equivalent circuit. Because the circuıit is balanced, we can easily obtain other phase values using their phase relationships.
18 Eeng 224 Balanced Wye-delta Connection Line currents are obtained from the phase currents I AB, I BC and I CA Three phase sources are usually Wye connected and three phase loads are Delta connected. There is no neutral connection for the Y-∆ system.

31 Eeng 224 Unbalanced Three Phase Systems An unbalanced system is due to unbalanced voltage sources or unbalanced load. In a unbalanced system the neutral current is NOT zero. Unbalanced three phase Y connected load. Line currents DO NOT add up to zero. I n = -(I a + I b + I c ) ≠ 0
