Three-Phase Electrical Systems

Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC)


Most of the AC machines are constructed with three-phase windings in the stator. The compression and analysis of AC machines can be complicated in three-phase systems, especially when there is a moving part, such as the rotor, which, depending on its position relative to the stator, the results of the equations can take different values. In this chapter, three-phase systems with star and delta connections are analyzed, analyzing the power calculation with practical explanations, being the prelude to the in-depth analysis of the mathematical tools that facilitate the analysis of AC machines. Besides, practical graphics and examples of a digital implementation of mathematical axe transformations (Clarke and Park transformations), RMS, and electric power computations are represented.
