Why capacitor is used in fans?

In a single phase system (as at home, where a ceiling fan is used), there is only one voltage phase. The condenser is used to ensure a phase change (i.e. a change of time between currents) in the rotation of the engine, which makes it appear that the engine works in a multi-phase system.
