For years, many companies have used (and continue to use) the inexpensive method of “stacking” run capacitors in order to get a phase converter started. Those capacitors are not taken out of the circuit once the phase converter is running, which results in extremely high voltage and current imbalance. This condition causes current overloads that […]

This disproportionate power draw has resulted in, among other things, dimming the neighbor’s lights, demand charges from the utility, and large increases on power […]
