Difference between DOL, Star Delta, VFD and Soft starter

DOL-Direct on line Starter: here the starting current will be 6 times of full load current. A bimetallic thermal overload relay provides protection against the over load. There will be no reduction of starting torque during starting. Star Delta Starter: In order to limit the starting current of motors this method is followed. Initially motor…

Why Numerical Relay over Electromechanical Relay

Advantages of Numerical relays 1.      Compact Size Electromechanical Relay makes use of mechanical comparison devices, which cause the main reason for the bulky size of relays. It uses a flag system for the indication purpose whether the relay has been activated or not. While numerical relay is in compact size and use indication on LCD…

Causes of failure of insulator

The causes of the failure of insulator are :-   Cracking of insulator: The main cause of cracking is due the stress produced in the porcelain due to unequal expansion and construction produced in cement, steel and porcelain caused by seasonal heat cold, dryness, and dampness or by heating of the insulator. To avoid such…

Magnetic Saturation

If we increase the mmf of a magnet, the flux density inside the core to of the is also increased. Now we can ask a question, whether there is any limitation of increasing flux density in the core of magnet with increasing applied mmf. The answer is yes. There is a limit beyond which there…
