Their purpose is to drop some voltage and hence reduce the voltage
applied across the motor terminals.^{}

^{ }

In this way, the initial current drawn by the motor is reduced.^{}

^{ }

However, it should be noted that whereas current varies directly as
the voltage, the torque varies as square of applied voltage.^{}

[Note: When applied voltage is reduced, the
rotating flux f is reduced which in turn decreases rotor e.m.f and hence rotor
current I_{2}. Starting torque which depends both on f and I_{2} suffers on
two counts when impressed voltage is reduced]

For example if voltage applied across motor
terminals is reduced by 50%, starting current is reduced by 50%, but torque is
reduced to 25% of the full-voltage value.

When motor is direct-switched on to normal
voltage, then starting current is the short –circuit current I_{sc}.

Starting torque = 1.96 x Full load torque.

Hence, even if current is greater than full
load current the starting torque is only 1.96 times full-load torque.

If applied voltages/phase can be reduced by
fraction „x‟, then

It is obvious that the ratio of starting torque
of full-load torque is x^{2} of that obtained with direct switching
(or) across the line starting. This method is useful for the smooth starting of
small machines only.
