why single phase induction motor is commonly used for low HP rather than integral HP like 1,2,3HP..... i understand that single phase gives low power....but say you have designed such that your motor delivers 10HP for rated voltage and current...why such single phase machines are not common???can anyone please explain and prove technically??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
