Balancing system

THREE OR SINGLE PHASE BALANCING SYSTEM (or Steinmetz bridge)

The Steinmetz method for phase balancing :

A load connected between 2 phases of a three phase system can be brought to appear symmetrical and have unity power factor as seen from the three phase system by applying reactive elements between the phases.

This system is used when single phase application use a lot of current and procreate a not negligible unbalance of voltage on public network.
