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.
