# All about wiring of electric motors

## Motor circuit diagrams

Diagrams indicate the voltage-free orÂ current-free status of the electricalÂ installation. A distinction is drawnÂ between:

Block diagram – Simplified representation of a circuit with its main parts. It shows how the electrical installation works and how it is subdivided.

Circuit diagram – Detailed representation of a circuit with its individual components,which shows how the electrical installation works.

Equivalent circuit diagram – Special version of an explanatory circuit diagram for the analysis and calculation of circuit characteristics.

### Motor wiring diagrams

Wiring diagrams show the conductiveÂ connections between electrical apparatus. They show the internal and/or external connections but, in general, do not give anyÂ information on the mode of operation. Instead of wiring diagrams, wiring tables can also be used.

Unit wiring diagram – Representation ofÂ all the connections within the device orÂ combination of devices.

Interconnection diagram –Â Representation of the connectionsÂ between the device or combination ofÂ devices within an installation.

Terminal diagram – Representation of theÂ connection points of an electricalÂ installation and the internal and external conductive connections connected toÂ them.

Location diagram (location diagram) – Representation of the physical positionÂ of the electrical apparatus, which doesÂ not have to be to scale. You will find notes on the marking ofÂ electrical apparatus in the diagram as wellÂ as further diagram details in the chapter â€śSpecifications, Formulae, Tablesâ€ť.

Hi, so I have been looking and reading up on as many topics as I can for the knowledge, I am currently in a planning phase of turning motors in to generators, looking into what I need to do insure that generated voltages can be combined and ultimately made into a grid for household back up, or powering accessory items in my home without using municipal power. Can 3 phase power be manipulated in such a way that could be applied to 1phase use?
