What is the difference between a single phase generator and a three phase generator

The construction of any generator there is a displacement of three coils de-fazed in space, on a circle with 120 geometrical degrees. There will be at a certain rotational speed of the rotor against the static coils on the stator, an electric current called alternative, or AC. Unlike continuous current, the c.c. is changing its polarity many times a second. This changing in polarity is called the frequency of AC. This is measured in Hertz. Continue reading
