  Polyphase coil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Polyphase coils are electrical coils (phases) connected together in a polyphase system such as a generator or motor.
In modern systems the number of phases is usually three, or a multiple of three.
Like all coils used in electrical machinery, polyphase coils (made from insulated conducting wire) are wound around ferromagnetic armatures with radial projections and maximum core-surface exposure to the magnetic field.

 Polyphase system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A polyphase system must provide a defined direction of phase rotation, so mirror image voltages do not count towards the phase order.
Polyphase power is particularly useful in AC motors, such as the induction motor, where it generates a rotating magnetic field.
A common practice for rectifier installations and in HVDC converters is to provide six phases, with 60 degree phase spacing, to reduce harmonic generation in the ac supply system and to provide smoother direct current.

 Polyphase hydraulic drive system - US Patent 6837141   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The hydraulic drive system of claim 14 in which the first cam element is a cam ring and is mounted on a first load-bearing axle and the second cam element is a cam ring and is mounted on a second load-bearing axle.
A control system adjusts the profile of the cam ring to control the transmission ratio, and a pressure compensator automatically reduces the transmission ratio when the resistance torque on the output shaft exceeds a predetermined value, as when the vehicle is ascending a steep hill.
Thus the hydraulic drive system of the present invention may be used for the gear-less and valve-less interconversion of rotational energy, for the conversion of rotational energy to linear kinetic energy, and for the conversion of linear kinetic energy to rotational energy.

 Polyphase system
Polyphase electrical systems supply electrical power in overlapping phases, the most common example being three phase power.
In a polyphase system several such supplies are overlapped out of phase to smooth out the total voltage.
In these systems the total power supplied is over 90% of the rated voltage, which is useful for driving high-power motors.

Tesla's most famous contribution was the theory of polyphase alternating current electricity, which he used to build the first induction motor, invented in 1882, as well as developing the designs of numerous other electrical machines and related technology.
The exhibits included a switchboard, polyphase generators, step-up and step-down transformers, transmission line, commercial size induction motors, commercial size synchronous motors, and rotary direct current converters (one of which was operating a railway motor).
A system for "Projecting Concentrated Non-Dispersive Energy Through Natural Media" known as teleforce was reportedly developed later in his life [commonly known as a "death ray" or "peace ray"] (primarily a defensive weapon, with characteristics of a weapon of offense).

Visualization of the rotating magnetic field led Nikola Tesla to invent the first practical induction motors - previously all commercial motors were DC, with expensive commutators, high-maintenance brushes, and characteristics unsuitable for operation on an alternating current network.
HVDC or high-voltage, direct current electric power transmission systems contrast with the more common alternating-current systems as a means for the bulk transmission of electrical power.

 "A New System of Alternate Current Motors and Transformers" by Nikola Tesla   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The transformers, with their numerous advantages, have afforded us a relatively perfect system of distribution, and although, as in all branches of the art, many improvements are desirable, comparatively little remains to be done in this direction.
In closed circuit armatures, such as used in the continuous current systems, it is best to make four derivations from equi-distant points or bars of the commutator, and to connect the same to four insulated sliding rings on the shaft.
The employment of multipolar motors secures in this system an advantage much desired and unattainable in the continuous current system, and that is, that a motor may be made to run exactly at a predetermined speed irrespective of imperfections in construction, of the load, and, within certain limits, of electromotive force and current strength.

 Single-phase power systems - Chapter 10: POLYPHASE AC CIRCUITS - Volume II - AC   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
This is why power distribution system designers elect to transmit electric power using very high voltages (many thousands of volts): to capitalize on the savings realized by the use of smaller, lighter, cheaper wire.
High voltage gives greater system efficiency by means of reduced conductor current, but it might not always be practical to keep power wiring out of reach at the point of use the way it can be elevated out of reach in distribution systems.
This tradeoff between efficiency and danger is one that European power system designers have decided to risk, all their households and appliances operating at a nominal voltage of 240 volts instead of 120 volts as it is in North America.

Nikola Tesla performed experiments with very high voltages that are the stuff of legend, involving ball lightning and other effects (some have been duplicated or explained; and others which have not).
Nikola Tesla, inventor of the induction motor and developer of polyphase systems, contributed to the world of electrodynamics the theory of polyphase alternating current, which he used to build the first induction motor, invented in 1882.
This led to a contest in the so-called court of public opinion as to which system would be adopted as the standard for power transmission (known as the War of Currents), Edison's direct-current system or Westinghouse's alternating-current method.

 Three-phase power systems - Chapter 10: POLYPHASE AC CIRCUITS - Volume II - AC   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Split-phase power systems achieve their high conductor efficiency and low safety risk by splitting up the total voltage into lesser parts and powering multiple loads at those lesser voltages, while drawing currents at levels typical of a full-voltage system.
Such systems are usually referred to as three-wire systems rather than split-phase because "phase" is a concept restricted to AC.
This principle, applied to power systems, can be put to use to make power systems with even greater conductor efficiencies and lower shock hazard than with split-phase.

To make the transmitted polyphase currents perform mechanical work, he invented a revolutionary polyphase AC motor, which is by far superior to the conventional Direct Current (DC) commutator motor.
In the days of the Wars of Currents, Tesla fought for his new AC power system and AC motor against Edison, who was backing DC power generation and transmission and DC motors.

The apparatus was in units of fair commercial size and gave to the public a view of a universal power system in which, by polyphase current, power could be transmitted great distances, and then be utilized for various purposes, including the supply of direct current.
It showed on a working scale a system upon which Westinghouse and his company had been concentrating their efforts; namely, the alternating-current and polyphase system.

 Lessons In Electric Circuits -- Volume II (AC) - Chapter 10
Polyphase motors don't need such measures; their direction of rotation is fixed by the phase sequence of the voltage they're powered by.
With a Y-connected system, a neutral wire was needed in case one of the phase loads were to fail open (or be turned off), in order to keep the phase voltages at the load from changing.
Since the higher-order harmonics tend to be attenuated more by system inductances and magnetic core losses, and generally originate with less amplitude anyway, the primary harmonic of concern is the 5th, which is 300 Hz in 60 Hz power systems and 250 Hz in 50 Hz power systems.
