# Frequent question: Which starter is used for DC shunt motor?

Contents

A four-point starter is used to overcome this difficulty. A 4 point starter is used to start and control the speed of a Dc shunt motor with field weakening control.

## What type of starter is used in DC shunt motor?

Three point starter is used in shunt wound DC motor or compound wound DC motor. To start the motor, the starter arm is moved to stud 1 in the clockwise direction ie) whole of the resistance is added to the armature winding of the dc motor.

## Which starter is used for load test on DC series motor?

Explanation: Starter of the car simply implies start of operation at maximum load. Thus, series motor can be used in this application. For higher torques, since speed remains constant car starter is one of the best application of DC series motor.

## Which of the following is not a starter used in DC motors?

Explanation: 3-point starters are used only for shunt and compound motors, they are not used for series motors. Three-point starter is employed where motor field current can be varied in a narrow range and so does the motor speed. Explanation: Starting resistance of a DC shunt motor and DC compound motor is low.

## What will happen when DC shunt motor is started with load?

Answer : Starting current will be very high so motor will take more current from supply. It may damage the armature winding.

## What are the advantages of DC shunt motor?

The power supply of the DC motor is any way cheap. Shunt would motor able to runs at a predetermined speed. The speed of a dc shunt motor is sufficiently constant. Direct current machines can use for heavy industrial applications where the torque and speed wider range.

## Can you start the DC motor without a starter if you can then how?

For small DC motor, it’s OK to start it directly. The basic purpose of starter is to insert some resistor in the series to limit starting current and as motor pickup speed, decrease that resistance gradually and bypass it completely after motor reaches to rated RPM.
