Hello everyone...

Good day. Im noticed some devices like motors, appliances or any electronic devices used different rated of hertz liked our TV used 60 hertz some TV used 50 Hz others rated 50~60. I know that every countries have there own standard of hertz...My question is there any effect with the performance of a motor or any kind of electronic devices if they used with different rate of hertz. Is the rate of hertz has effect the design, size of the wire and number of turns of wire..etc.. when creating a new electronic devices...

the standard 50hz or 60 hz is different for different countries. while generating the power the turbine is coupled with the generator and to maintain the synchronism the trubine and the generator are run accordingly. if the frequncy that is the number of cycles per second are less in number then there will be flickering problem that is on/off problem we will see the lights flickering and if the frequency is too high then the syncronism will be lost so to maintain the syncronism and also to overcome the problem of flickering frequency is set. which is actually the generation of the alternating signal

For DC voltage power base devices,
there would not be any much differences.
Since they are regulated to DC voltage to powered your devices.

Example: VCR, Computer, etc
