It's youtubers like this guy that are making cable tv irrelevant
Hey Mehdi, I'm even more confused now. Is it possible your building is wired differently, and instead of a center-tapped transformer providing two 120V legs and neutral, it instead uses 2 phases of a 3-phase connection?
Awesome video! Also, quick tip on how to get things off a 3d printer tray more easily:
* If your printer supports it, put painter's tape on the tray before you print. You can use hair spray to make sure the parts stick to the tape.
* Or, you can 3d print a custom safety razor handle/holder and use the sharp razor blades to CAREFULLY separate the parts from the tray.
* Some people use dental floss. Sounds dumb, by may be worth a shot.
There's something Wile E Coyote-like about the motor being fed from the generator, and I love it!
Unfortunately it is incorrect to describe residential power as "two phase" as it is *generally a single, split-phase voltage.
"A transformer supplying a three-wire distribution system has a single-phase input (primary) winding. The output (secondary) winding is center-tapped and the center tap connected to a grounded neutral. Since the two phasors do not define a unique direction of rotation for a revolving magnetic field, a split single-phase is not a two-phase system."
EDIT: *On larger apartment buildings they may just split the 3-phase into 2-phase subpanels for individual units.
EDIT 2: I'm not sure why I'm getting downvoted so much, at [2:45](https://youtu.be/quABfe4Ev3s?t=2m45s
) he says "in Canada we usually send two phases to each home" which is not true.
Why are there two separate phases connected to one receptacle?
My building has a corner grounded delta system, it's antique.
My other building has a high-leg delta system, which is awesome because I get my 3-phase and single phase feeds from one service.
As a European watching this: So you guys not only get less voltage, but also less phases in your homes? How do you run your ovens and shit with that? Do you have 100+ Amp fuses?
Wow, literally just learned about this topic in class today. What a coincidence
Does this explain why I can't turn on the washing machine and the kettle at the same time? The fuse box trips.
