Without BELLE Written-Pole® Motor technology, the sisters of Santa Rita Abby would have had plenty of batter. But no bread.
The BELLE Written-Pole 1-to-3™ Three-Phase Microgrid
As the nuns found out, it’s a miraculous solution for power a three-phase application from existing single-phase utility lines. The Abbey outside Tucson has only single-phase service but needed a higher power to run a special French oven for making Altar Breads. Installation of three-phase service was cost prohibitive. Fortunately, the Abbey’s mother superior, working with Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative, discovered BELLE Written-Pole® Technology.
Main contractor AES New Energy and Southwest Energy solutions installed a 60-hp Belle Written-Pole® motor coupled with a three-phase generator. Now there is ample power for the oven at a fraction of the cost of installed three-phase service. The low starting current of the highly efficient, unity power factor BELLE Written-Pole® means there is no voltage sag on the single-phase system. And the motor-generator system also rides through momentary power interruptions with ease.
When it comes to efficient large-horsepower application on single-phase systems, thank heaven for BELLE Written-Pole® Motors.
ABOUT THE BELLE SINGLE-PHASE WRITTEN-POLE® MOTOR: The BELLE Single-Phase Written-Pole Motor produces large horsepower output from a single-phase line. Making it the perfect solution for applications that don’t have access to three-phase power. Where three-phase power is need the motor technology is used as part of the innovative 1-to-3 Microgrid to produce three-phase power from a single phase line without the need for a VFD or Phase Converter.
