three-phase current

[′thrē ¦fāz ′kə·rənt]
(electricity)
Current delivered through three wires, with each wire serving as the return for the other two and with the three current components differing in phase successively by one-third cycle, or 120 electrical degrees.

As can be seen from Figure 17, the grounding short-circuit fault of phase A occurs when t = 3 s (Figure 17(a)), and the three-phase current of AC grid is seriously asymmetric (Figure 17(b)); there is the second-order harmonic component in the DC voltage (Figure 17(c)); the DC component of the three-phase circulating current is not symmetrical (Figure 17(d)); the amplitude of the capacitor ripple voltage of the SM is increased (Figure 17(e)).
