Single phase capacitor sizing

When install a motor using capacitor for starting or running methods,we must sizing the rated of capacitor suitable with motor to get correct starting torque and avoid winding from overheating and can cause a damage.

This is basically a question of motor design.There is no straightforward regular relationship between capacitance and the motor size in kW.

When replacing these capacitors, the capacitance value and voltage should be taken from the manufacturer’s plate on the motor or from the old capacitor.This must be correct within ±5% and is sometimes stipulated down to a fraction of a μF.The choice of a running capacitor is even more limited than with a starting capacitor. read more

Molded Case Circuit Breaker

What is MCCB ( Molded Case Circuit Breaker ) ?

It is a mechanical device ( BS 4752 ) to be used to connect and disconnect the circuit in normal and abnormal.Current rate for regular MCCB up to 3000 ampere.

It is only available in a 3 pole only, usually for a system that has a high ampere ratings in three ( 3 ) phase systems.For those who have ampere ratings than 400 ampere, the safety interlock system is prepared for security purposes because the current system are high.

There are two ( 2 ) types of MCCB commonly used in industry, it was: –
