Abstract

This research is purposed to establish a simple method for operating the three phase induction motors of delta connection standard with single-phase power by using capacitor circuit to the motor. The research was conducted at the Laboratory of the Electrical Engineering of Institut Teknologi Padang. The object used in this research was the 3-phase induction motor of 1.5 HP, 380/220V, Y/∆, 2.75/4.74A, 4 poles, 50 Hz, 1400 RPM. The results showed that the motor could work well on single phase power load by up to 66% of the 3-phase rating. The motor could operated on power factor close to unity, with lower current harmonic distortion and efficiency 99.76%.
