Studying Three-Phase Supply in School
Singhal, Amit Kumar; Arun, P.
Physics Education, v44 n4 p415-419 Jul 2009
The power distributions of nearly all major countries have accepted three-phase distribution as a standard. With increasing power requirements of instrumentation today even a small physics laboratory requires a three-phase supply. While physics students are given an introduction to this in passing, no experimental work is done with three-phase supply due to the possibility of accidents while working with such large power. We believe a conceptual understanding of three-phase supply would be useful for physics students, with hands-on experience using a simple circuit that can be assembled even in a high school laboratory.
