THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A THREE PHASE AUTOMATIC PHASE SELECTOR
The basic aim of the design and construction of this three phase automatic phase selector is to demonstrate how contactors can be used to switch in between three lines or phases e.g “RED, YELLOW AND THE BLUE PHASE” without interfering with the contacts.
This type of phase selector is able to switch between phases with the aid of inter-locking one phase to the other either one phase circuit is dependant on the other phase circuit which means that two phase circuit which that two phases cannot come on at the same time.
This research work is divided into six chapters, chapter one emphasizes on the introduction of the topic, the second chapter centers on the review p=of related literature as it regard to the design and construction of this Automatic three phase selector.
In Nigeria today the problems of power outage across phases is so rampant thus leading to some sensitive equipment and appliances being redundant, this could sometimes be the cause of one phase going out with respect to the other.
It may surprise one to note that in an attempt to solve this problems, so many unskilled electricity consumers has in recent past resorted to some crude means of swapping between phases to obtain power. So many souls have been lost in this act. This is an undesirable condition to consumers and the need now arises to design a device that can automatically select among the phases and make power supply available at the consumers terminal.
