Advantages of three-phase alternator

Three-phase system has many advantages over single-phase system.

Advantages of three-phase alternator

Three-phase system has many advantages over single-phase system. Let us see a few of them.

1)  For a given dimension of the generator, three-phase machine produces higher power output than a single-phase machine.

2)  For the same capacity, three-phase alternator is smaller in size when compared to single phase alternator.

3)  Three-phase transmission system is cheaper. A relatively thinner wire is sufficient for transmission of three-phase power.
