  • Selecting the Right Motor Starter Option
    Of the various motor starter options, which is the best fit for your application? This article introduces the benefits and tradeoffs of the three main starter types: across-the-line starters, softstarters, and variable frequency drives.
  • High-Efficiency Operation of a Hybrid Electric Vehicle Starter/Generator Over Road Profiles
    Efficient operation of induction motor starter/alternator systems is an important part of the power-management function that is required in the self-contained vehicular environment. However, the nonlinear dynamics of the induction motor [1], parameter sensitivity to environmental factors, load
  • Soft Starter Basics
    A Soft Starter is an electrical device that controls the applied voltage to a motor to control its acceleration. In industrial settings, induction motors are commonly used because of their ability to self-start. While this is beneficial, the starting mechanism draws in high current (inrush) which
  • Not By MOSFETs and Processors Alone: Passive Components Also Critical to Advanced Motor Control
    The internal-combustion car historically had only one high-current electric motor: the starter. This 12-V/100-A (typical) unit does not need sophisticated control, as it is just an on/off, "give it the full 12 V DC and let it rip" motor. The few other motors were small and easily controlled
  • Virtual Engineering Lab for Motor Testing and Development
    for fully interactive control of actual system hardware. To understand the potential benefits of the VE-LAB, consider one example application: the development of a high-efficiency starter/generator for hybrid electric vehicles. With an induction motor starter/generator connected into the VE-LAB
  • What Is Your Ideal Overload Relay?
    Choosing which relay to use for overload protection depends on the specific electric motor starter application.
  • Three Wire Control SJ100 L100 (.pdf)
    Sometimes it may be desirable to use a remote START/STOP pushbutton arrangement together with an inverter. This often occurs when a machine is being retrofitted or upgraded with the addition of a Hitachi inverter as a replacement for a motor starter
  • Common Driver Platform for 12V and 48V Systems Simplifies EV Starter Generator Designs
    "BSG systems are becoming more common in HEV motor control designs due to their easy implementation, similar footprint to existing alternator systems and the elimination of major modifications to the powertrain (in P2 - P4 locations). As starter generator systems continue to evolve, further
