Hey there guys.

Paul here from TheEngineeringMindset.com.

In this video, we're going to be

looking at Three Phase Electricity.

Now, this follows on from our series

on electrical engineering, so if you haven't watched

the previous videos on this so far,

then please do this first.

Links are in the video description below.

Coming up, we're going to be looking at

how a simple AC generator works.

Then we'll look at a single phase power,

then two phase power, and then finally three phase power.

As well as how three phase power is used and why.

Also why we don't use four, five,

six phase, et cetera power.

So, first of all, let's start with a simple AC generator.

We'll start with a single phase to understand

what's happening, and then we'll add in

other phases until we get to three phases.

Let's take a copper wire and wrap it into two coils,
