How do I select a capacitor value for a single-phase motor?


Selecting the capacitor value for a single-phase motor involves considering the motor’s power rating and operating conditions.

Typically, you’ll find a motor’s recommended capacitor value in its technical specifications or on the motor itself.

If not, you may need to consult the motor’s manufacturer or use formulas specific to single-phase motors, taking into account factors like voltage, current, and power factor.

It’s crucial to match the capacitor with the motor’s requirements for optimal performance and efficiency.
