The Benefits of Type E/F
The stator resistance starter consists of three resistors, which are connected in series
with each phase of the stator windings. At each resistor, a voltage drop is caused, so
it becomes necessary to apply low voltage to each phase. These resistances are set
at the start or maximum position during the motor start stage. The starting current is
kept at a minimum in this type of starter. Also, the starting torque to the motor needs
to be maintained.
The Advantages of Using Stator Resistance Motor Starters:
• They are suitable for use in speed control applications.
• They have extremely flexible starting characteristics.
• They provide smooth acceleration.
