Power in a Balanced System
Introduction
• The earliest application of a.c was electric lamps 
single phase
• Then a.c motor was developed  single phase not
suitable
• Need 3-phase system
• In general, the generation, transmission and distribution
of electrical power are more efficient using 3-phase
system.
• For economic reasons, 3-phase systems are usually
designed to operate in the balanced state.
Introduction
Single phase systems
a) two-wire type
b) three-wire type
Introduction
The basic structure of a 3-phase systems consist of a
voltage source connected to loads by means transformers
and transmission lines. To analyze such circuit, we can
reduce it to a voltage source connected to a load via a
transmission line as shown in this figure

Voltages
If the voltage source have the same amplitude
and frequency ω and are out of phase with each
other by 120o, the voltage are said to be
balanced.
Van  Vbn  Vcn  0

Balanced phase voltages are equal in
magnitude and out of phase with each other by

Example
Determine the phase sequence of the set of voltages
van = 200 cos(ωt + 10◦)
vbn = 200 cos(ωt − 230◦), vcn = 200 cos(ωt − 110◦)
Solution:
The voltages can be expressed in phasor form as
Van  20010V
Vbn  200  230V
Vcn  200  110V
We notice that Van leads Vcn by 120◦ and Vcn in turn leads
Vbn by 120◦.
acb sequence.
