Question
```what is the function of starter & choke in the tube light
set & how choke give 1000 volts while switching on.```

# 1
function of choke:it produces high voltage in the tubelight
which is essential for ionisation of the gas present in the
tubelight.

we need around 800 to 1000 volts to start ionisation of the
medium which is present between the 2 electrodes of the
tube.once the ionisation starts the conductivity of medium
increases and 110 volts is sufficient to sustain the
emission of electrons from electrodes.
so to produce such a high voltage we are using choke.
once it starts to reduce the 230V to 110 volts we are using
the same choke.
so how this choke is producing around 800 to 1000 volts at
starting.
as we know inductor opposes the rate of change of current.
here we are making current I which is intially drawn to
zero with the help of bimetallic contacts present in
starter.according to formulae E=L*di/dt here L is constant
and di is equal to I-0 and dt is time taken for I to become
zero.
accordingly high voltage is induced and this voltage is
sufficient to drive the electrons from one electrode to
another electrode inspite of medium present between
electrodes. once tube start conduction, it needs only 110v
to sustain the illumination.so to reduce the 230v to 110v
choke just acts as a voltage limiter by dropping the
voltage.

the normal operating voltage of tube light is about 110.
but naturally available voltage is 240v. hence the choke
comes into picture which gives 110v output. but for
initiating the light(to ionise the gas in the tube) the
system system requires 800 - 1000v. to provide this starter
has been used, which block the current flowing from the
choke to light hence the voltage will build up across the
load. once the maximum voltage reached which starter can
withstand, the starter closes the circuit and the builded
voltage applied across tube light.

it is the starter that short the terminal and produces high
voltage and the purpose of the choke is to limit the hugh
current that will cause the supply line to drop causing it
to dim

# 5
the starter function is used simply step up the voltage
level at the time of starting by using resistor and
inductor phenomenon and at the same time the starter
maintain the voltage for excitation of gases molecules
after some time by comparable no energy drawn from source

chock works as blast in a tube circuit,it give surg voltage(1000v) to circuit which is sufficiant to ionise the gases in tube it only works at starting of tube.

# 8
gases present in the tube light is of such nature that once the gas ionised then it has a tendency to increase continuously accompanied by a fall in the circuit resistance . in order to limit the current to a safe value choke is used .
choke performs two function
1) providing ignition voltage
2) limiting the current

the starter recieves an electrical signal from the
switch,then it engages and springs the flywheel turning the
engine over to prompt it to start.starter is a powerful
elctric motor that spins gasolline engine to make it
start.this is only for starter not for choak
