single phase motor

What a single phase motor is and why it is so common in various domestic and small industrial applications.

For lighting and general-purpose applications in offices, homes, shops and small factories, the single phase motor is a more common choice compared to a three phase solution. This is because the single phase system is more economical and can easily meet the low power requirements of domestic and light industrial installations. A single phase motor features simple but rugged construction, low cost, reliability and ease of maintenance and repair. All these advantages have seen the single phase motor extensively used in centrifugal pumps, fans, washing machines, vacuum cleaners and small toys. Some common types of single phase motors include the shaded pole motor, the permanent split capacitor motor (which is also known as the single value capacitor motor), the split phase motor, and two value capacitor motor.
