Single-phase alternating current motors have assumed importance these days in particular as electrification in the home and at work continues apace. Indeed, such motors are especially suitable for automation techniques by means of economical, labour and time-saving equipment. Generally speaking low-powered motors suffice to drive such devices and, consequently, such motors can be connected to the single-phase network.
