How do 3 phase motors manage to run on single phase power using the Steinmetz delta connection with a single capacitor? I thought capacitors only shift the phase angle upto 90 degrees, whereas 120 degrees phase shift is needed. Can someone explain this mechanism in detail or provide reference where I can read up on this particular topic?
I also need to understand how to calculate the capacitance needed to run a motor in this manner.
Is there a way to possibly calculate the power loss due to this method? Or do motors just provide 1/3 of its power when running on single phase?
