  1. Wat happens if we connect a capacitor to a fan?

    • It will run the Motor, ( Because these are Capacitor start-capacitor run motors)<br />also it improves power factor

    • rama krishna thumu

      since we are using single phase supply which is not a self starting machine so inorder to initially to provide some torque by changing the supply phase shift by 90 degrees <br />

  2. I got a nice help from that. thanks.<br />

  3. Great post! Generally the capacitor is there for POWER FACTOR CORRECTION. If we provide a capacitor then phase angle will change which will produce rotating magnetic field due to which fan rotates. It is really easy to install capacitor or you can take help of experienced electricians.

  4. what happen when two capacitor are connected in fan<br />

  5. how changing phase angle will produce megnetic field ??<br />can u explain??<br />plz

  6. I think, he said &quot; phase angle will produce rotating magnetic field&quot;…. Be Careful.. &quot;he meant &quot;Rotating Magnetic Field&quot;….not only &quot;Magnetic Field&quot;.<br />

  7. how can i check that my main winding is not short circuited

  8. I have a Minka Aire F510 ceiling fan and I am using a RCS212 hand held to control it. By using the remote instead of the wall control I lose the low speed. I was told that if I replace the capacitor in the receiver with a lower one that I could get the low speed back is this something you can help with. Thank you.
