Single Phase Electric Motor

Hordu has been manufacturing single phase electric motors, three phase electric motors for over 19 years, and has the export experience to export different industry motors to more than 20 countries including Russia, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Brazil, and Bangladesh, etc.

Hordu single phase electric motor is an electric motor that operates with single-phase power.

It refers to a form of electric energy transmission consisting of a phase line (commonly known as a hotline) and a neutral line.

If necessary, a third line (ground) is used to prevent electric shock.

Single-phase electricity is typically 220V, 120V, 100V or 230V in different countries and powering basic construction equipment such as power tools and portable lighting in non-industrial production and household.

Hordu Industry Motor: The Complete Guide

The operation of 1-phase power is very similar to that of 3-phase power, except the 1-phase power is supplied on a single power supply.

Therefore, a three-phase electric motor can self-start and generate a rotating magnetic field by itself while a single phase electric motor requires a capacitor to start and generate a magnetic field.

Three-phase AC motors are common in industrial manufacturing applications.

However, single-phase motors are used in a wide range of both daily and industrial applications.

Also in household appliances such as corn machines, washing machines, mixers, dryers, etc.

The motors are built for commercial use such as for fans, swimming pool pumps and cranes, conveyor belts and other equipment and components.

Since Hordu single phase electric motors cannot generate a rotating magnetic field by themselves, they require an external power source to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy efficiently.

Capacitors and auxiliary windings are common external power sources for starting the single phase electric motors. The other is a starting capacitor, a running capacitor as an external power source.

When an AC current is applied to the single-phase motor through an external power source, a magnetic field is generated by the combination of the start winding and the running winding.

The starting winding, which has a higher current generates a stronger magnetic field and drives the single-phase electric motor to start running.

When the motor reaches its approximate 80% rated speed (2 poles= 3000RPM, 4 poles= 1500RPM), it produces a sufficiently strong rotating magnetic field, and the single-phase motor can run itself without an external power supply.
