3-Phase Motors Not Running as They Should

Voltage Imbalance May Cause Motors to Run Inefficiently EC&M, June 13, 2017 Today’s 3-phase motors are more energy-efficient than their counterparts of only a couple of decades ago. Much of this is because of more precision in design, which allows for tighter tolerances and overall better construction. The newer motors use less energy and last
