    Hi friends,
    i wanna know the difference between a 3phase system and a 6phase system in a transmission system.

    I did a little searching on High Order Phase transmission and learned a little. There has been research on converting existing double 3-phase transmission lines to a 6-phase one.

    Hope this helps.
