Three-phase generator – advantages of use

The great advantage of a three-phase generator over a single-phase generator is the value of its voltage, being that single-phase generators are generally used to power domestic equipment and three-phase generators, in most cases, power large equipment.

Therefore, when we determine a generator for a customer, the choice between single-phase and three-phase is based on the loads that this generator will have to supply.

What are the main advantages of the three-phase generator?

  • Between two pieces of equipment with the same power, the three-phase generator is smaller and lighter
  • The three-phase generator is more effective in supplying energy. The three-phase system is the most used worldwide
  • As the torque of these generators is constant and suffer less vibrations, the total instantaneous power is also constant. That is, it does not suffer variations
  • The windings of three-phase generators are used more efficiently
  • As they are powered by three phases, three-phase motors do not use other types of devices
  • In a three-phase generator the total power is never zero

In general, in sectors that need a continuous and flawless power supply, and which rely on demanding equipment and high-powered motors, three-phase generators are imperative.

To respond to these stricter needs, devices that use three-phase voltage have a system capable of ensuring and supporting an efficient power supply.

If you want the power system to respond to long distances, your choice will also have to fall on a three-phase generator. Thus, you will have an effective solution with great energy efficiency.
