Starting of an Induction Motor

A three-phase Induction Motor is Self Starting. When the supply is connected to the stator of a three-phase induction motor, a rotating magnetic field is produced, and the rotor begins rotating and the induction motor starts. At the time of starting, the motor slip is unity, and the starting current is very large. The purpose …

Autotransformer Starter

An Autotransformer Starter is suitable for both star and delta connected motors. In this method, the starting current is limited by using a three-phase autotransformer to reduce the initial stator applied voltage. The figure below shows the motor with the autotransformer starter: It is provided with a number of tappings. The starter is connected to …

Star Delta Starter

The Star Delta Starter is a very common type of starter and is used extensively as compared to the other type of starting methods of the induction motor. A star delta is used for a cage motor designed to run normally on the delta-connected stator winding. The connection of a three-phase induction motor with a …
