single-phase circuit

single-phase circuit

[′siŋ·gəl ¦fāz ′sər·kət]
(electricity)
Either an alternating-current circuit which has only two points of entry, or one which, having more than two points of entry, is intended to be so energized that the potential differences between all pairs of points of entry are either in phase or differ in phase by 180°.

Figure 2a shows the equivalent single-phase circuit for the compensated system.
This single-phase circuit is able to correct power factor in alternating current power network.
In addition, the device can accommodate 36 single-phase circuits, 12 three-phase circuits, or any combination in between.
The circuits analysed are single-phase circuits, but a three-phase converter can be easily obtained by joining three single-phase converters.
The goal was to evaluate meters that cost less than $1,000 for a three-phase circuit or three single-phase circuits.
However, power meters that monitor three single-phase circuits are available and are included in this study.
This is far more cost effective than running numerous single-phase circuits because an entire data center rack can be powered with a single circuit, or two circuits for redundancy.
