So there're really two phases 180 degrees out of phase,
referenced to the neutral (the transformer's center tap), at the house's
main panel. Most couldn't care less what happens at the power compamy's line transformer. When I put my dual trace scope probes,
on each line referenced to neutral, the display indicates two sine waves 180 degrees out of phase.
Hardly that complex! Some still failing to understand the issue?
No difficulty understanding the aspects of phasing. There is also no difficulty understanding that there is really no two-phase terminology convention used in the US for home power. The convention, regardless of if technically a two-phase scenario exists, is the home power is single or split-phase.
Good, so you're beginning to understand! When wiring a house, most (not brain dead) think in terms of two phases and how to
distribute/load the two phases at the main panel. Thinking in terms of a single phase at the main panel provides no insight whether
installing new breakers or solving a partial power failure in the house. Ever attempted to determine which of the two phases powers
what areas of your house? Maybe do a wiki search, right?
Still having a problem?
