Why 3 Phase AC instead of Single Phase???
Why 3 Phase AC instead of Single Phase???
Seems we can run pretty much everything on a single-phase AC, then why bother with 3 phases??

Mehdi’s explosive demonstrations are not only extremely entertaining, but also serve as a very tangible warning about common errors. It also makes me really afraid of messing with electricity, unless I know exactly what I’m doing, and I’m still using all possible failsafes and protection I can.
in Poland, in most houses are momted 3 phases because of situations when three falls on electrical lines and then one phase is dead and other one works
Edit your videos and tell people not to do the dangerous things you do
I like to watch these videos on the shitter
How is this guy still alive? Kudos Mr. Boom!
3phase motors….love my job 😀
ad the vid. good job
Once you start watching this guy there is no going back.
Dude this guy makes mike holt look like an idiot.
Why not 12 phase? 😬
It almost always explodes 🙄
I used this video for my Class 12 Project.
Your description of phases being used in Canada doesn’t necessarily apply everywhere. Apartment buildings tend to use 2 legs of a 3 phase where houses tend to run split phase, which is a single phase run through a transformer with a center tap neutral
In europe we get all three phases in the home. Sometimes for three phase outlets but mostly for the stove to power the hotplates. The regular outlets and light are distributed over the three phases to roughly equalize the load across them.
Some places have 240 V difference. I wonder what the transformers are like in these places.
3:06 Here we have explosion.
Haha, buset! Utas sa bawat putok!!! Hahahahahahaha
I have been mostly listening to you, have been wondering what a resi store was…. I watched this one haha.
This man’s delivery is goooood
You don’t have split-phase power in Canada? Our residential power here in the US has two 120v legs, but they’re 180° out of phase with each other, not 120°, so you do get the full 240v between them. The only place I’ve seen appliances that run on 208v power is in commercial buildings (a stovetop in a break room or something like that).
3:06 pro tip incoming
can you show us the connection of 3 phase more and how is connected in lines and how it connect to different machines
and thank u very much!!!
I drew the winner for the Lulzbot Mini Printer between all patrons and viewers who signed up AND a patron with the name of "Beautiful Machines" won!
Thanks everyone for being around!
We get 3 phase electricity in most houses in my country.
What’s your address I’m gonna send you some safety goggles! I’m somebody that barely wear safety goggles but you my friend! You worry me a we bit!
Educational and funny
Cool explanation and couldn’t help but keep laughing until my stomach hurt😅
L O L 😆
this guy is funny!
this has become one of my favorite channels on YT. Very informative but at the same time super funny and keeps me guessing each time a connection is made or wires touch
my friends says im a nerd for listening to videos like this to relax but i love it :3
I always wondered why doubling up 120 made 208 and not 240 but this makes perfect sense because when the phases shift 120 degrees the peaks and valleys aren’t directly over each other so you don’t get the full peak and valley of the wavelength that you would get at 180 degrees
What does "dabon haders" mean?
Thank you for speaking in my language!
Amazing vedio tqsm
bro this dude carrying me through my physics class
"A day without accident is day wasted"
In Europe we’re also using 3 Phase AC to charge EVs faster 😀
You did a great job
Hahah what thats fucking dumb with that color code, lol in germany always brown <(much often) or black ar the phase und blue is neutral and yellow/green is the saveline/ground. I knew usa are so dumb but I dont know canada is even not so clever, hmmm.
In europe (at least in Germany) you get all three phases in households. We get 3 phases with 230V AC and usally three 16A breakers, which allow for 11kW power consumption (in some cases like an continous-flow water heater we even get 24kW).
This video really made me appreciate how much of a genius tesla was, with a modern perspective it’s easy to see 3-phase ac is the way to go, but to conceptualize these ideas over 100 years ago, and then make them a reality is truly amazing. Truly a genius and a very creative thinker
Great video. So informative.
I love how you leave all the mistakes made in the videos. I highly respect that genuinity
Man you are awesome .
hey electroBOOM so i bought this 80gal air compressor its 220v but when i plug it in and try and use it it barely runs. so its 3 phase? cant i just take 2 or 3 220v circuits and combine them to equate 3 phase power? i feel like the dude that sold me the compressor rip me off. Also what does 50htZ or 60htZ mean(sorry about the big Z my computer the little Z won’t work) Because i have an old lincoln engine driven welder/generator but it only has 50htZ power and not 60htZ. or something. idk. but i plug stuff into it and they work fine so wtf? do i need to start up that thing and plug it into my compressor to make a 4th phase of power. j/k i don’t care about the 4th phase just the htZ.
