I need some help understanding how phase effects the voltage and power of a circuit.

I haven't even been able to find much to read on it, but from what I've seen phase is the synonymous electron pulsewave that increases the power efficiency. For what circumstances/motors/circuits would a multi-phase voltage be used?

I can see that engineering is a second language for you.

Per se: your original query makes no objective sense -- since one can run off in multiple directions with your first statement.

I hope that you hit the books and come to understand alternating current theory.

However, this is a web-site dedicated to practicing electricians and contractors -- who have no time to resolve theory for you.

uhmm....

A good place to seek details on your question would be within the 'Online Store' link at the top of this page. Follow that to the books area, and look around. A brief, although thorough explanation can be found in the "Uglys" books.

Another source is a local library.

No, Tesla has a point. The grammar of your post indicates a language issue, as well as a complete lack of knowledge.

Your question reads like the 'technical' explanations of the famous 'turboencabulator.' We can't understand the question.

3 years in an engineering college, a lifetime in technical trades, and I have never heard terms like "synonymous electron pulsewave."

We have a nice community here, and we're not going to let it be destroyed.
