single phase ac motor
As the power requirements of single load systems are usually small, all our homes, offices are supplied with a single–phase A.C. supply only. To get proper working conditions using this single-phase supply, compatible motors have to be used. Besides being compatible, the motors have to be economical, reliable and easy to repair. One can find all of these characteristics in a single phase induction motor readily. Similar to three-phase motors but with some modifications, single-phase induction motors are a great choice for domestic appliances. Their simple design and low cost have attracted many applications.
Single-phase induction motors are the simple motors which operate on single -phase A.C. and in which torque is produced due to induction of electricity caused by the alternating magnetic fields
