The advantage of Repulsion motor is

Right Answer is:

High starting torque


The advantages of a repulsion motor are excellent starting torque, low starting current and wide range of speed control with a smooth variation of speed. The disadvantages are noisy performance, poor speed regulation, and periodic commutator maintenance requirements. Repulsion-type motors have the highest starting torque of any single-phase motor. The repulsion motor can race to a very high speed if operated with no mechanical load connected to the shaft.
