This program explains AC motors in detail. The general operation of three-phase (3Ø) and single-phase (1Ø) motors is reviewed as well as the components that form a motor. Also covered in detail are the three different types of single phase capacitor motors. The start and acceleration methods of Full-Voltage (Across-The-Line) and Reduced-Voltage are presented. The program explains in detail the five types of reduced voltage starts.
