Three Phase Power Supply a. 2. Being fully aware of the potential for an electric shock.B. Be sure and return the switch to the NORMAL position for the rest of the experiment. Determine their phase relationship and the phase angle between them using the scope. b. Now repeat the above step for Phase A and Phase C and record the display. accurately measure the rms values for the three line-to-line voltages and the three line-to-neutral voltages at your station using three DMMs. Various power cords. Various current shunts and probes. The standard instrument rack found at each station. One rheostat module with two 50-Ω rheostats rated at 4. EXPERIMENT . The "green" neutral wire on the 3-phase supply provides a return to ground. f.e. This is the case for perfectly balanced three phase voltage sources and perfectly Three Phase Circuits . Next reverse the phase sequence by flipping the switch to REVERSE and observe the lamp pattern. Also. A schematic of the Phase Sequence Indicator (PSI) is provided on the next page. observe the Phase A and Phase B waveforms on the oscilloscope using two 10X Probes or the A/100 and B/100 test points with coaxial cables. One single-phase wattmeter. c. as long as the neutral return current is zero. i.5 Amp each. b. and therefore careful to shut off the 3-phase breaker each time the DMM connections are moved. g. Be sure the switch is in the NORMAL position. One three-phase transformer. c. Equipment List a.THREE PHASE CIRCUITS 1. d. Finally.11 . observe the voltage waveform for the Star Point (STAR) on the Phase Sequence Indicator on the scope and copy this display. Plug this device into the Three Phase (3φ) wall power source using the 3-Phase Cord Set and determine the phase sequence (ABC or CBA) using the PSI. Copy this display. e. One Phase Sequence Indicator (PSI). It is well and thoroughly grounded and will remain at Mother Earth potential as long as there is no IR voltage drop.
