Starting current of a straight type repulsion motor is about _______ its full load value.
Right Answer is:
The same as
Generally, the repulsion induction motor consists of a single-phase stator winding, as a repulsion-start induction motor, but it consists of two separate independent windings on the rotor in common slots. The speed-torque characteristic of a repulsion induction motor is similar to that of a D.C Compound Motor.
Speed-torque characteristic of a repulsion induction motor
The starting torque repulsion induction motor is 2.25 to 3 times the full-load torque and the starting current will be 3 to 4 times the full-load current. The single-phase repulsion-induction motor has the advantages of high starting torque and good speed regulation. It has the ability to continue to develop torque under sudden heavy applied loads.
