Why starts are used for DC motors?
Last Answer : In DC motors starters are used to limit the starting current within about 2 to 3 times the rated current by adding resistance in series with the armature circuit. Other than this ... starters are variable fitted with protective devices like no -voltage protection and over-load protection....

Is it possible to include/ Exclude external resistance in the rotor of a Squirrel cage induction motor?. Justify
Last Answer : No it is not possible to include/ Exclude external resistance in the rotor of a Squirrel cage induction motor because, the rotors bars are permanently short circuited by means of circuiting rings (end rings) at both the ends. i.e. no slip rings to do so....

Why Delta Star Transformers are used for Lighting Loads? 
Last Answer : For lighting loads, neutral conductor is must and hence the secondary must be star winding and this lighting load is always unbalanced in all three phases. To minimize the current unbalance in the primary we use delta winding in the primary. So delta / star transformer is used for lighting loads....
