High Tension Soft Starter

High Tension Soft Starter

Working Principle Of High Tension Soft Starter

  • Flux Compensated Magnetic Amplifier soft starters are step less reduced Voltage starters which ensure a constant low starting current with incremental voltage and torque to the motor to achieve smooth acceleration of the drive.
  • The Soft Starter is connected in series with the motor either on the line side or neutral side and thus controls the starting current and starting torque.
  • As the motor speed increases the FCMA impedance decreases due to counter emf feedback to achieve incremental voltage and torque for the motor while keeping the current constant.
  • The voltage across the motor increases smoothly from the starting value(50-60%) to run value(94-98%) with motor speed.
  • A built-in bypass contactor closes to ensure full voltage running of the motor.
  • Bypass contactor operation can be time,Current or speed based.
