to unity, higher speed and better efficiency. The motor operated
with higher current harmonic distortion at low loads but lower
current harmonic distortion at high loads. Therefore, it is very
good to operate the motor at high load up to 85% of the 3-phase

Abstract This research is purposed to establish a new method

is good and simple to operate the 3-phase induction motor on

single-phase power by using the capacitors. The research was

conducted at the Laboratory of the Electrical Engineering of the

Padang Institute of Technology. The object used in this research

was the 3-phase induction motor that has the standard of 2 HP,

380 V, Wye connection, 4 pole, 50 Hz, 1400 RPM, 3.6 A. The

results of this research showed that the method could work well

to control the motor to operate properly to load 85% of the 3-

phase rating. In general, the motor has a better performance

when operating on 1-phase power system in all load cases (low

and high load). The motor could operate with power factor close

to unity, higher speed and better efficiency. The motor operated

with higher current harmonic distortion at low loads but lower

current harmonic distortion at high loads. Therefore, it is very

good to operate the motor at high load up to 85% of the 3-phase

rating.

I. INTRODUCTION

The 3-phase induction motor has 3 coils identities

are separated from each other across 120

o

electricity

that powered by a 3-phase power system. They will

produce a resultant magnetic flux that rotates like

poles actual magnet spinning mechanism.

Relationships coil of the 3-phase induction motor

with two poles of the stator in the Wye connection

system is as shown in Fig. 1.

The 3-phase induction motors of squirrel cage

rotor normally operate on a 3-phase power system.

To improve the starting torque of the motors, they

can operate on a single phase supply as shown in

Fig. 2.

Fig. 2 shows some methods of installation the

capacitor circuit to the coil of the motor to operate

the motor on single phase power. Another methods

for operating the 3-phase induction motor on a

single phase power also as shown in Fig. 3 and Fig.

4. The Fig. 4 is a form of development from the Fig.

3 that provide the best solution to control the motor.

The Fig. 5 shows the control circuit used in the Fig.

Referring to Fig. 4 can be explained that the start

capacitor Cs accidentally placed in series with the

coil R and S is to get the highest value of the

capacitive reactance of the start capacitor. If

referring to the theory of the 'Torque start

obtained as follow

inductive reactance of the coil T (in Pu), Rm is the

resistance of the coil T (in Pu) and Zm is

and S, thus the total impedance of the coil R and S

is become 2 times of the coil T, then the voltage on

the capacitor V

IV. TEST RESULT

The motor used in this research is the 3-phase

induction motor of 2 HP, 380V, Wye-connection,

3.6A,1400 RPM, power factor 0.84 lagging, and

class B. Test result of this research about power

factor and speed of the motor are given in Fig 6 and

Fig. 7. Control box with all components for the

motor is given in Fig. 8.

The blue line in the Fig. 6 and Fig. 7 are the

characteristics of the motor during operation on 3-

phase system, while the red and black lines are

during operation on a single phase system using a

capacitor 20 F (red) and 25.55 F (black). From

the figures can be seen that in general the motor can

operate with better performance on single phase

power compared to operating on three-phase power.

The figures show that with the same load conditions

the motor can operate on single phase supply with

higher power factor and higher speed.

V. CONCLUSIONS

From the research that has been done can be

summarized as follows.

1. A simple method for operating the 3-phase

induction motor on single phase supply (for

Wye-connection Standard) is to operate the

motor by using the capacitors that are

installed in series with the two coils of the

motor (R and S) and the circuit is then

installed in parallel with the other one (T).

2. This method can operate the 3-phase

induction motor at low to high loads up to

85% of the 3-phase nominal load rating.

3. This method could work well to operate the

2 HP 3-phase induction motor at low to high

loads up to 70% by using the run capacitor

20 F and the load from 70% to 85% by

using the run capacitor 25.55 F
