Book Description

29 Nov 2010 Workshop Practice
A practical guide to running three-phase equipment on single-phase electricity supplies. Often, model engineers buy industrial workshop equipment, such as lathes, drilling machines and milling machines, which usually require a three-phase electricity supply. Although ready-built phase converters are available, they can often cost as much or even more than the equipment purchased. This book provides an invaluable source of practical guidance on how anyone can find out the type of electrical equipment they have, and how to convert it to run on a single-phase supply. The book provides calculations, step-by-step instructions with photographs and diagrams and covers electricity supplies in the UK, North America, Europe and the rest of the world. Finally, it also advises on which equipment cannot be converted at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three phases for the genius 2 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
I actually bought this tome as a Christmas present for my brother he said it was a bit heavy going unless you have phD. But there was still a mine of information in it and has cleared up a lot of queries he had about 3 phase conversion.
He also said it would make a handy book for reference on subject and is glad I got for him and thats no BS. Not for faint hearted.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't hit the spot! 28 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
No doubt highlights the engineering knowledge of the author but is of limited use to anyone contemplating the issues. Needs a more practical spin on things for the target audience. Tells us all the woes and perils of 'old style' generated / pseudo 3 phase yet gives little advice on a real, viable alternative; digital inversion......
