Three Phase Theory - Professor J R Lucas As you are aware, to transmit power with single phase alternating current, we need two wires (live wire and neutral). However you would have seen that distribution lines usually have only 4 wires. This is because distribution is done using three phase and the 4th wire is the neutral. How does this help ? Since the three phases are usually 120o out of
