Hi, I'm new here, but I've been messing around with electronics for a while. I would like to build a 3 Phase AC motor controller using 555 Timers, but I'm a little confused on how I would go about doing this. My understanding is that I would need 3 Timers with each phase shifted 120 degrees from eachother. However with that, I am stuck when it comes to generating that exact 120 degree phase shift. How would I do that? Would I need a fourth 555 to generate sort of a central clock that the others use as a reference?
Or could I simply use one 555 as a signal generator and somehow extract or convert that one wave to 3 seperate phases?
Could someone point me in the right direction? Thank you very much in advance for the help. I appreciate it.
