A three-phase power supply can be highlighted by three different generators linked with each other, each completing one 3rd of a power cycle while pressing as well as drawing electricity. Recognize a three-phase power supply with intriguing details from a math and also science teacher in this cost-free video on scientific research.

@ApolloWasReal ALSO DC insulation is less for the same given voltage of AC due to the peak to peak values of AC not present on DC

@ajgio If by this you mean the RMS and peak voltages for DC are the same, while peak is sqrt(2) times RMS for AC, then you’re right.

100 MW AC as 1000 A RMS and 100,000 V RMS means the insulation has to take 141,421 V peak.

But 100 MW DC as 1000 A and 100,000 V requires insulation only for 100,000 V.

Although the peak AC current is sqrt(2)*RMS, only the RMS counts from a heating standpoint with DC or AC. But insulation has to be rated for peak voltage, putting AC at a disadvantage.

@weesenz he’s steve johnson. 🙂

Well explained my friend! I’m a powerline technician apprentice and theory is what my whole job pertains to! This will help me have a better understanding of whats going on! Thank you very much!

Thankyou for explaining that in such a simple way.

thank you that cleared things out a bit but i wish i could learn more about WHY or HOW exactly 1 or 2 phase generator would blow up. What’s the mechanics of developing such “imbalance”?

Thank you. 🙂

Nice 😉

Perfect introduction. Thanks!!

perfect!

Thank you!

What will happen if I mixed up the power supply L1,L2 and L3 in a industrial machine?

Thank you!

brb, making a single phase generator.

ka-booooooom!

Steve I wish there were more people in the world like you, i cant understand my teacher as he’s Nigerian and i’m English, that was so well explained…thank you so much!

wele done, the first time that i understood why we have 3 Phase Electricyty, because you produce 3 Power with 3 Generators in one turnearound

Thank you this vid, if only the books i’ve had my head stuck in for the past few months explained it as simply as you did!

That was short and great.. thanks.

Great illustration about the “balance” of the phases. My understanding is that much more complete now 🙂

well taught.

Brilliant stuff!

Sir you’re by far the best person to explain this on youtube.
