Train locomotives are built with the cylinders on opposite wheels 90 degrees out of phase for that very reason -- so the train can always start even if one cylinder is at top or bottom dead center.I think of single phase AC as it relates to single phase motors like a steam train. as in the way it turns linear force into rotational. Single phase pulses directly back and forth. imagine if you stopped a steam train with the push rod extended straight out; without some help ( something pushing on the wheel from a different angle, maybe from the top, or 90 degrees out of phase hint hint),
yup. I should add that fact next time I bust out my canned start/run cap analogy.Train locomotives are built with the cylinders on opposite wheels 90 degrees out of phase for that very reason -- so the train can always start even if one cylinder is at top or bottom dead center.
