How to Use a 3-Phase Line Reactor for a Single-Phase Application

Posted

MTE three-phase Line / Load Reactors can be used for single-phase applications by routing each of the two supply conductors through an outside coil, and leaving the center coil disconnected.  The illustration below demonstrates how a 3-phase line reactor can be used for a single-phase application. Using the mathematical method below you can calculate the inductance to determine what type of reactor is needed.
