Control of an Electric Pump
With an auto transformer starter, the transformer supplies a certain percentage
of the primary voltage to the secondary of the transformer. The auto transformer
is connected in a star configuration. The three tapped secondary coils of the
transformer are connected to the three motor phases in this type of starter. This
helps in reducing the voltage that is being applied to the motor terminals.
The Advantages of Using Auto Transformer Motor Starters:
• They can be used for manual speed control, but with limited options.
• They have extremely flexible starting characteristics.
• They have a high output torque.
