This interactive presentation, created by Terry Bartelt for the Electromechanical Digital Library, discusses phase splitting in single-phase motors. Bartelt begins with a discussion of the sine waves that starts this process. After this important introduction, the author allows the student to explore either resistance or capacitance start motors. Bartelt explains each using helpful interactive flash animations. These are not only useful in explanation, but they allow the student to more fully engage with the topic. Overall, this is a nice introduction to two different uses of phase splitting in mechanical engineering. The author concludes the presentation with a brief series of questions. Additionally, it is noted that students should review the learning object "Single Phase Motors" before embarking on this more advanced study.
