Rotating magnetic fields in three-phase electrical machines has been one of the hardest topics to convey to our students in the area of energy conversion, because these fields are transformed into phasors that rotate in space around the stator of the electrical machine. Also, the mathematical proof of such rotation can be done quite elegantly, but the mathematics of it and the assumptions made tend to cloud the clarity of the concept. Classic textbooks approach this concept in a mathematical way and usually is left to the students to imagine the space phasor rotation. This is no longer the case, now we can simulate it and SEE IT in our desktop computers using MatlabTM.
