What is a three phase alternating current system?

To turn air into compressed air, you need energy. This energy can be provided in the form of electricity.

First of all, you should know that the power of single-phase alternating current varies. In the case of domestic use, this is not really a problem. However, to operate electric motors, it is preferable to use a current which produces a more constant power. To do this, it suffices to use three separate electric lines, supplied by alternating current, operating in parallel, but each having a phase shift of 1/3 of a cycle with respect to the other phases. Three-phase alternating current is produced at a power station, in a generator made up of three separate windings. A single phase application can be connected between phase and neutral. Three-phase applications can be connected using all three phases, in two different ways: star (Y) or delta (Δ) configuration. In the case of a star connection, a phase-to-neutral voltage is applied to the terminals of the receiver. In the event of a delta connection, a phase-to-phase voltage is applied to the terminals of the receiver. Industrial compressors were among the first industrial machines to feature variable speed drives (VSD), also known as variable frequency drives. These are used to control the rotational speed and torque of AC induction motors by controlling the frequency of the motor supply voltage. The most popular design converts all three phases of AC input voltage to DC voltage using a bridge rectifier. This DC voltage is converted into a quasi-sinusoidal alternating voltage using an inverter switching circuit (IGBT type semiconductor switches) and pulse width modulation (PWM).
