Single-Phase Motors

Single-Phase Motors


This is the fifth lesson in the AC/DC Motor Theory Course. This lesson trains the participants to distinguish single-phase motors from three-phase motors. Split-phase motors and capacitance start motors are discussed.

Module Objectives

  • Distinguish a single-phase motor from a three-phase motor.
  • Explain the design of a split-phase motor and how it works.
  • Explain the design of a capacitance start motor and how it works.


The AC/DC Motor Theory course was specifically developed for electricians and electronic technicians as well as for the multi-craft training needs of process and manufacturing facilities. This course consists of 11 interactive, on-line lessons that address AC and DC motor theory.
