Three phase motors
Three phase motors are more efficient to run than single phase motors, but more expensive to purchase, so when considering motors, you need to decide whether a three phase motor would provide value for money when paired with your own personal needs. The cost of running three phase motors can also prove to be quite steep, so you need to consider how long you will need to use one – costs are even higher if you choose to convert an already existing single phase motor. They have a smoother, more continuous flow of power, which is perfect for use in commercial and industrial sites. They also allow for longer cord and cables, so are suitable for use over a distance or in large areas. However, like single phase motors, they have their disadvantages – but these can be avoided if installation is carried out properly. Otherwise, three phase motors can experience rotation issues. They are much more efficient than single phase motors, converting up to 97% of electrical energy into usable mechanical energy.
