#### Can I operate 60Hz (3600rpm) generator at 50Hz (3000rpm)?

##### Friday, May 15, 2015

If you operate a 3600 rpm (60 Hz) synchronous generator at 3000 rpm (50 Hz), the power output will be reduced, simply because the mass of the rotor remains constant and you reduce its rotational speed. Based on the laws of physics, kinetic energy is directly proportional to the mass and the square of the velocity. Conversely, if you operate a 3000 rpm (50 Hz) generator at 3600 rpm (60 Hz) the power output will ...

## 50Hz vs 60Hz in operating speed

The primary difference between 50 Hz (Hertz) and 60 Hz (Hertz) is, well, 60Hz is 20% higher in frequency. For a generator or induction motor pump (in simple terms) it means 1500/3000 RPM or 1800/3600 RPM (for 60Hz). Lower the frequency will be the iron losses and eddy current losses. Lower the frequency, speed of induction moto ...

#### Operating a 380V/50Hz motor on 460V/60Hz

##### Tuesday, February 3, 2015

On a centrifugal pump, the head at the discharge end should be 44% higher than if it were run at 50Hz, so the shaft torque would also be 44% higher, no? A throttling valve will restrict flow and reduce the load, but at the designed flow rate under 50Hz operation, the motor will still be operating 20% faster than it would at 50Hz. I'll take your word that this is acceptable.

What I would do would be to discuss the pump application with the manufacturer and see if it was possible to ...

#### Why Frequency of Generator is High (Higher than 50Hz/60Hz)?

##### Friday, January 30, 2015

The frequency output of the Permanent Magnet Generator is related to the pole count of the exciter - compared to the motor it is feeding.

If the motor line frequency is 50 Hz, then the exciter has 3x the pole count of the synchronous machine (i.e. 2-pole synch with 6-pole exciter design, or 4-pole synch and 12-pole exciter, etc.)

If the motor line frequency is 60 Hz, the exciter has 2.5x the pole count of the synchronous machine (i.e. ...

#### Frequency (50Hz, 60Hz) in Generators

##### Wednesday, January 14, 2015

The excitation system requires a very small fraction of the total power being generated. If we could simply increase the excitation (a very small amount of power) and increase the generator's real power output, the world's energy problems would be solved, because we would have a perpetual motion machine.

In the case of a generator connected to a large grid, the generator will inject any desired amount of power into the grid if its prime-mover is fed the desired power (plus a small ...

#### Voltage Frequency Levels of Power System

##### Saturday, January 3, 2015

The voltage levels, particularly at the high-voltage and extra-high-voltage levels, have long been standardized in different industrialized countries. The North-American system is 60 Hz, while the European system is 50 Hz. Each other country in the world (as far as I know) follows one or the other frequency standard. Japan is the only country I know of that has both 50 Hz and 60 Hz systems.

Then, once you've picked your "system ...

#### Why generator voltage is 11kV 50Hz or 13.8kV 60Hz?

##### Tuesday, December 30, 2014

The real reason behind the choice of 11, 22, 33, 66 and 132kV levels is not clear from the responses to date and it may have passes into history unknown. Most likely, it was a decision arising from a standards committee and it may be an optimum transformation ratio chosen to minimize total losses. Someone still alive may yet know the reason. Then again, it may have a legacy resembling that of the standard rail gauge.

These numbers were chosen arbitrarily in the past and have actual ...

#### Operating 50Hz transformer on 60Hz supply

##### Wednesday, December 24, 2014

You can run the 50Hz transformer on a 60Hz supply. Now since the frequency has changed the only variable thing in the existing transformer that can change (assuming simple one input and one output) is the flux density. In its simple form we are operating the transformer (60Hz/50Hz = 1.2) at 20% lower flux density.

If the things were reversed the flux density would be 20% higher and may saturate depending on design. You can even run the transformer at 400Hz providing that the volta ...

#### Harmonics in train power system

##### Tuesday, December 23, 2014

For Metro DC traction power systems, the commonly adopted nominal voltages are 750V DC and 1500V DC. The DC substations are normally fed from a High Voltage (HV) 11 kV or 33 kV 3-phase AC network in the UK. To convert the 3-phase AC voltage to DC voltage, a modern DC substation employs a 3-winding transformer (delta-delta-star) to feed a 12-pulse rectifier (consisting of 2 x 6-pulse diode bridges, the outputs of which are connected in either parallel or series to form a 12-pulse rectifier). N ...

#### Can I run a 50Hz motor on 60Hz power supply?

##### Wednesday, November 5, 2014

You see the number of revolutions that an electrical motor turns is dependent upon the cycles per second (Hertz) that the alternating current (AC) is changing. A motor that is designed to run on 60 Hz and is plugged into a 50 Hz power supply system will turn 17% slower, the internal current will go up 17%, the amount of power (watts) will go down 17%, and the appliance mechanical cooling will be 17% less. The end result will be that the motor will be using a higher current then what the motor ...

#### How to convert 110v/120v 60Hz to 220v/230v/240v 50Hz

##### Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Home appliances, like TV, speaker, lights, may work with both 50 Hertz and 60 Hertz, but some appliances especially with electric motor inside it, like air conditioner, fridge, can only work with 50Hz or 60Hz. If a 50 Hz motor working on 60 Hz power system, the motor speed will be 20% faster, then cause over temperature and shorten its service life.

We all know, most European and Asia countries powe ...

## What is 50Hz, 60Hz?

Alternating current (AC) is changing the direction of the current periodically; Cycle is the time of a cyclical change of the current; Frequency is the times of the current changes per second, unit Hertz (Hz). AC current direction changes 50 or 60 cycles per second, in accordance with 100 or 120 changes per second, then the frequency is 50 Hertz or 60 Hertz.
