Three-phase generator – advantages of useCarlos Martins
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.
