Starter is used to reduce starting current.starting current
is usually large because of inertia,charecteristics of
motor winding(at starting slip=1,rotor resistance low
implies less back emf).So at starting we use starter .for
example.STAR DELTA starter.by using a starter at least the
switching is improved which is much important for safe and
longer life time use.simply a DOL can be used for lower
rated motors (up to 07 HP)in this case.for higher rated
motors (up to 15 HP)we can use a star delta connection.a
delta connected motor takes 1.7 times line current than a
star connectd motor.think ! at starting the current is
almost halved .Now a days we use drives (power electronics
products which not only takes care of starting of a motor
(improving power factor) also controls it as perrequirement.
