Starting Resistance

 

a resistance or reactance (inductive reactance) introduced into the armature circuit of an electric motor when the motor is started in order to limit the starting current and to provide the required starting torque. Starting resistances are usually stepped, which makes it possible to alter the starting current gradually as the motor is being started. The steps can be connected or disconnected by means of a switch, controller, or contactor.

The problem of the effect of an additional starting resistance in the excitation winding on the value of electromagnetic torque was generally not considered or investigated using so simplified mathematical models that reliable results are unlikely.
They were then divided into a control group and a variable resistance group, which used resistance bands at 30% of 1RM as the starting resistance for the affected movements.
The starting resistance torque ([Trq.sub.r]) can be obtained by motoring tests, the MAP for resistance torque lookup is shown in Figure 3, and the real-time [Trq.sub.r] is acquired by interpolation with the real-time engine speed and the coolant temperature acquired by corresponding sensors.
"But within five minutes of starting resistance exercise with weights you'll burn through the stored sugar in the muscle and get straight in to fat burning.
* low starting resistance with small weight increments
As with conductance, when resistance exceeds 120% or is lower than 80% of the starting resistance, the inductor is shut down.
* Starting resistance of zero on most machines is great for first-time users.
Then, during the latter portion of the melt cycle, the resistance increased back to near the starting resistance. For this to occur, the temperature of the iron in the channel had to increase.
