Operating Principle
FCMA type Magnetic Soft Starter offers series impedance in the motor
circuit Usually constructed as a coil around core of high permeability
circuit.
than that of air, increases the magnetic field there by increasing the
required starting impedance. Thus it reduces the starting current &
torque of the motor & ensures the smooth starting.
ZSS – Soft Starter Impedance.
ZM – Motor Impedance.
Impedance
ZT – Total Impedance.
ZSS + ZM = ZT VSS – Voltage across Soft Starter.
VSS + VM = Vn VM – Voltage to Motor.
Vn – Applied Voltage.

As motor speed increases due to counter emf feedback the starter

results in incremental voltage & torque to the motor. As motor reaches to
full speed the built in bypass device closes to ensure the full running
voltage to the motor. The operation of bypass device can be done
through the set value of acceleration time, current or rated speed.
