Overview

An electric power distribution system looks like:
where the power transmission uses balanced
three-phase configuration.
3
Why three-phase?

Three-phase generators can be driven by
constant force or torque (to be discussed).

Industrial applications, such as high-power
motors, welding equipments, have constant
power output if they are three-phase systems
(to be discussed).
4
Key points

What is a three-phase circuit (source, line, load)?

Why a balanced three-phase circuit can be
analyzed by an equivalent one-phase circuit?

How to get all the unknowns (e.g. line voltage of
the load) by the result of one-phase circuit
analysis?

Why the total instantaneous power of a
balanced three-phase circuit is a constant?

Real Y- and A-connected voltage sources

Internal impedance of a generator is usually
inductive (due to the use of coils).
10
Balanced three-phase voltages

Three sinusoidal voltages of the same
amplitude, frequency, but differing by 120

phase difference with one another.

There are two possible sequences:
1. abc (positive) sequence: v

(t) lags v
a
(t) by 120.
2. acb (negative) sequence: v

Three-phase systems

Source-load can be connected in four
configurations: Y-Y, Y-A, A-Y, A-A.

Its sufficient to analyze Y-Y, while the others
can be treated by A-Y and Y-A

transformations.

Meaning of the solution

N
= 0 means no voltage difference between
nodes n and N in the presence of Z

. Neutral
line is both short (v = 0) and open (i = 0).

The three-phase circuit can be separated into 3
one-phase circuits (open), while each of them
has a short between nodes n and N.
