There are about as many uses for the single phase motor as a prime power source as there are applications for small horsepower type motors. The single phase motor is one of the most useful types of motors for all kinds of tools used in every day life.
In terms of electrical engineering, the single phase motor distributes alternating current electric power in a system wherein all of the voltages of the electrical supply vary in unison. They also need additional circuits for starting, such as a capacitor start motor.
Motors for farm work, such as in an electric irrigation pump and most irrigation systems motors in general, a
