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 starting resistances starters are variable fitted with protective devices like no –voltage protection and over-load protection.

Why squirrel cage induction motors are not used for loads requiring high starting torque?
Last Answer : Squirrel cage motors are started only by reduced voltage starting methods which lead to the development of low starting torque at starting. This is the reason why squirrel cage induction motors are not used for loads requiring high starting torque. ...

Give the prime purpose of a starter for motors.
Last Answer : when induction motor is switched on to the supply, it takes about 5 to 8 times full load current at starting. This starting current may be of such a magnitude as to cause objectionable voltage drop in the lines. So Starters are necessary...

Why stator resistance rarely used?
Last Answer : Due to addition of resistance in the stator side cause the voltage available to the motor X times the normal voltage i.e. The starting current drawn by the motor as well as the current drawn from the supply get reduced by X times where as the starting torque developed gets reduced by X2 times....
