The Benefits of Type E/F
In the rotor resistance starter, the three resistances are connected such that they are
in series with the rotor windings. This helps reduce the rotor current considerably, as
well as increases the motor torque.
The Advantages of Using Rotor Resistance Motor Starters:
• They are cost-effective.
• They have a simple speed control method.
• They provide low starting current, large starting torque, and large pull-out
