Get Your Motor Running!

The starting function of motors is often misunderstood, impacting motor performance and compromising energy efficiency.

We’ve developed a series of technical white papers to provide a detailed introduction to the theory of starting motors, based on the work of electronics design expert Mark Empson, co-founder of AuCom Electronics.

Reduced Voltage Starting

This first white paper in the series - Reduced Voltage Starting - covers the basics of reduced voltage starting of three phase AC induction motors. Other papers in the series include:
