About this title


A practical guide to running three-phase equipment on single-phase electricity supplies. Often, model engineers buy industrial workshop equipment, such as lathes, drilling machines and milling machines, which usually require a three-phase electricity supply. Although ready-built phase converters are available, they can often cost as much or even more than the equipment purchased. This book provides an invaluable source of practical guidance on how anyone can find out the type of electrical equipment they have, and how to convert it to run on a single-phase supply. The book provides calculations, step-by-step instructions with photographs and diagrams and covers electricity supplies in the UK, North America, Europe and the rest of the world. Finally, it also advises on which equipment cannot be converted at all.

About the Author:

Graham Astbury graduated from the University of Birmingham and is a Chartered Engineer, who has recently retired after a career in the chemical industry providing expertise on the prevention of fires and explosions. With a lifelong interest in both model and electrical engineering, he started re-winding motors and transformers whilst still at school, and has spent the last few years researching into phase conversion methods for his own workshop.
