Single & Three Phase Systems

In electricity, the phase refers to the distribution of a load. What is the difference between single-phase and three-phase power supplies? Single-phase power is a two-wire alternating current (ac) power circuit. Typically, there is one power wire—the phase wire—and one neutral wire, with current flowing between the power wire (through the load) and the neutral wire. Three-phase power is a three-wire ac power circuit with each phase ac signal 120 electrical degrees apart.

Residential homes are usually served by a single-phase power supply, while commercial and industrial facilities usually use a three-phase supply. One key difference between single-phase vs. three-phase is that a three-phase power supply better accommodates higher loads. Single-phase power supplies are most commonly used when typical loads are lighting or heating, rather than large electric motors.

Single-phase systems can be derived from three-phase systems. In the US, this is done via a transformer to get the proper voltage, while in the EU it is done directly. Voltage levels in the EU are such that a three-phase system can also serve as three single-phase systems.

Single-phase vs. three-phase power

One other important difference between 3-phase power vs. single phase power is the consistency of the delivery of power. Because of the peaks and dips in voltage, a single-phase power supply simply does not offer the same consistency as a three-phase power supply. A three-phase power supply delivers power at a steady, constant rate.

Comparing single-phase vs. three-phase power, three-phase power supplies are more efficient. A three-phase power supply can transmit three times as much power as a single-phase power supply, while only needing one additional wire (that is, three wires instead of two). Thus, three-phase power supplies, whether they have three wires or four, use less conductor material to transmit a set amount of electrical power than do single-phase power supplies.

Difference between 3-phase and single-phase configurations
Some three-phase power supplies do use a fourth wire, which is a neutral wire. The two most common configurations of three-phase systems are known as wye and delta. A delta configuration has only three wires, while a wye configuration may have a fourth, neutral, wire. Single-phase power supplies have a neutral wire as well.

Both single-phase and three-phase power distribution systems have roles for which they are well-suited. But the two types of systems are quite different from each other.

We can upgrade your 3-phase equipment without the hassle of massive downtime.

High Bay and Low Bay Lighting

A high bay light is usually defined as a light intended for use in a ceiling ranging from 20-40 feet in height from the floor. A high bay ceiling is usually found in industrial and some commercial spaces.

A low bay light is usually defined as a light intended for use in a ceiling under 20 feet in height from the floor. A low bay ceiling is the most common type of ceiling commonly seen in homes, most retail businesses, and public buildings.

When considering high bays vs. low bays, the matter of the ceiling height is always the deciding factor. The reason behind this is because these two categories of lighting fixtures are manufactured differently to accommodate the needs of each space. For example, one of the major differences is the concentration of the light spread. Most high bays will utilize reflectors to help ensure the light spreads down and out in the way necessary for visibility in the space from the higher distance. A high bay will also feature a high lumen output to compensate for the greater distance compared to low bay light fixtures. A fixture placed so high up may have a harder time maintaining the brightness you expect so it needs to compensate with a higher lumen output to reach all the vital areas and avoid shadows.

Many people worry about the negative impacts of using the wrong one in their space. While the results won’t be a disaster per se, it will definitely impact the space overall. For example, using a low bay light in a high bay ceiling will result in a lack of proper visibility, and the use of a high bay light in a low bay ceiling will certainly overpower the space and flood it with too much brightness as well as cost more in the long run. This is why it’s important to consider the height of your ceiling and the role it plays in choosing the right lighting solutions for your space.

We can upgrade all kinds of high and low bay lights, LED replacements and alterations.

Legionella Risk Assessments

A legionella risk assessment is a non-intrusive inspection of the plumbing system in a rented property. It involves checking that the system complies with current plumbing standards and ensuring that hot and cold water temperatures are at the correct levels. Carrying out a risk assessment normally takes between 30-45 minutes per property.

A report is then produced which provides recommendations on works required to reduce the risk from legionella in each property and contains a control programme to follow to manage the ongoing risk from legionella in the property.

We carry out legionella risk assessments across the North East of Scotland.

Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) Testing

Electrical Installation Condition Report

NEES specialise in EICRs for domestic & commercial premises. Throughout the years we have worked with many letting agents in & around the North East testing homes. We offer a speedy turnaround service as we know renting out can be incredibly stressful when trying to find the right tenant. For you to then find out you need an EICR to comply with regulations. Our electricians are NICEIC Approved so can sign off any electrical certificates required for rental or insurance purposes. It is important to always use a registered electrician when carrying out these important checks. It’s not just homeowners and letting agents we carry out EICRs for, we also help local businesses meet insurance requirements by making sure the property is in a safe working condition for the staff and general public. We offer discounted packages for landlords & estate agents with multiple properties. If the property has tenants and you don’t live local, then please don’t worry, we can arrange access with the tenant on your behalf & you can BACS payment upon completion of the works. This works really well for landlords who are not based local.

What next after the EICR
If an electrical installation condition report is satisfactory you will be given your document and no further action will be needed until your next report is due.

If the report recommends improvements to the installation, we will give you a no obligation quotation for the remedial works to be carried out. Upon completion a certificate is given to the client to say that the installation is now in a safe condition. All documents are PDF files that are emailed over so you always have a copy.

Distribution Boards

Throughout the North East of Scotland there are still many old fashioned fuse boards installed in homes. These don’t offer the same protection as the modern 18th edition consumer units. The newer style fuse boards incorporate RCD protection against electric shock which disconnect the supply in a few milliseconds. The removal of fuse wire is a welcome sight instead replaced with a breaker that can be reset manually in a couple of seconds. We offer various packages to our clients including SPD (Surge Protection Devices) which monitor inrush current from the energy grid and lightning strikes from damaging vulnerable appliances like iPad, fridges, TV, & boilers. These new fuse boards meet the latest fire regulations to increase the safety for you and your family.
