What does 1 (Single) Phase Power mean?

If you’re not electrically minded, think of 1 (Single) phase power like a one pedal bicycle where one (pushing leg) provides power.

Single Phase power refers to a two wire Alternating Current (AC) power circuit. Typically there is one power wire and one neutral wire. In the US, 120V is the standard single phase voltage with one 120V power wire and one neutral wire. In some countries, 230V is the standard single phase voltage with one 230V power wire and one neutral wire. Power flows between the power wire (through the load) and the neutral wire.
