Re: 1. Why a DC motor starter is called 3 point starter
# 1
Beacuse this 3 point starter has three points to save the
motor.
2) no volt protection
3) starting huge currect protection

DC motor starter is called 3 point starter bcoz only 3
terminal (L,A,F)are available from starter.These 3 terminal
L(line),A(armature),F(field) must b connected to supply
terminal,motar armatuer terminal,and shunt field terminal.

Actually Dc motor starter are classified as two point
starter,three point starter and four point starter.
Three point starter is used in case of Shunt motor(some
cases this can be used compound motor also)
Four point starter is mainly used in compound motor.
Two point starter is used in series motor in order to make
the motor to run in safe manner.
Three points denotes Line terminal.field terminal and
armature terminal in which three points are connected.
three points L,A F.
that is the main reason

In an dc motor have 1.armature
2.field
3.supply
in an 3point starter have 3point(L A F ),
it limits starting armeture current.because armeture is
very low resistence.

that way adding resistace series with the armature 3 point
starter should be used.

# 5
the main purpose of using a three point starter is
to limit the starting armature current.......
This is because dc motor the initial voltage difference is
less so high current passes through the armature windings
which is not a desired factor.When we use a 3 point starter
it slowly induces the back emf in motor so that the voltage
difference is less and rate of current flow is less, so the
motor doesnt get spoiled

a three point starter is onely usst four three point
(l,f,a) line,field,armature. so itis called as three point
starter

because it has three terminals line,field,armature.these
three terminals are connected to their respective ones in a
motor.

Because they have three terminals namely line field and
armature. they are connected with the motor respectively,

Re: 1. Why a DC motor starter is called 3 point starter
# 10
because it has three terminals i.e;'l' 'f' 'a'
'l' is connected to supply
'f' is connected to feild circuit
'a' is connected to armature
