Function of a Capacitor in Electric Ceiling Fans or Electric motors

Posted by Sikandar khan  |  at  9:00 AM No comments


As you know we are using motor running capacitor in electric fans and electric motors, but most people do not  know about the ceiling fan capacitor. And the  function of capacitor. We are using permanent split capacitor motor (motor running capacitor) in electric ceiling fans.
Electric ceiling fans have 3 wire(terminals). Which are common,start and run. The electric ceiling fans or electric motors have two types of coils, a "run" and a "start" winding.
A Capacitor is connected in series with the start winding to insert a phase shift, but once the electric ceiling fan or electric motor is up to speed it becomes an auxiliary winding.
As you know that we use 3.5 uf motor running capacitor (permanent split capacitor motor) in electric ceiling fans and electric single phase motor.
Note date we will use only motor running capacitor in single phase electric motors. If you have a stand electric fan or ceiling electric fans, and its speed are very slow in 220 voltage. Then kindly change the capacitor and use 4.5 uf motor running capacitor for Electric stand fans.

However if you have any question then do ask me in comments section below.
