FINALLY getting to start building the Rotary Phase Converter tonight. Just mounting the components in the enclosure. Had not planned on documenting this but I plan on posting some photos as I go. Just wondering if anyone else is considering building one?.
Being my first I am certainly no expert. Just stumbling through this but I think I finally have a grip on it how it works. I have been looking at the drawing for a couple of weeks now.
For those unfamiliar with the term, it is method of generating 3 phase power from standard single phase house hold current using a 3 phase 'idler' motor to generate the 3rd leg of electricity. Well something like that anyway.
Photos to come. To tired to walk down the stairs to the Lab tonight.
