Single-phase alternating current


Corriente alterna monofásica

Courant alternatif monophasé

The rotary current supply network consists of the three conductive phases, plus the neutral conductor and the protective conductor. See Figure A.

Single-phase alternating current means that the consumer can be supplied with 230 V from one of the phases R, S, or T and the neutral conductor M. In a rotary current network with 32400 volt, the single-phase AC network has 230 volt. See Figure B.
