Why is the starting current high in a DC motor?
Last Answer : In DC motors, Voltage equation is V=Eb-IaRa (V = Terminal voltage, Eb = Back emf in Motor, Ia = Armature current, Ra = Armature resistance).At starting, Eb is zero. Therefore, V=IaRa, Ia = V/Ra ,where Ra is very less like 0.01ohm.i.e, Ia will become enormously increased. ...

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. ...
