Why does AC electrical power come in 3 phases? What the heck is a “phase”, anyway?

In this episode of the EEK! Series, you’ll learn about 3-phase power and its advantages.

In short: fewer wires, more power, and the Earth itself is a conductor.

In addition, 3-phase industrial motors are more efficient and don’t require a starting capacitor since the 3 phases are “rotating” already.

Be sure to watch EEK! #1 and EEK! #2 first!

Stay tuned for more installments of EEK!
