## Motor Starting Study Exercise

3 second

Run Static Motor Starting Check results from OLV display, plot and report. Is system voltage ok? Is the problem real or is it related to user entered acceleration time and sequencing? Run Dynamic Motor Starting Check results from OLV display, plot and report. Is system voltage ok? Can all the motors be started? Solution to solve problem with motors failing to start (to increase acceleration torque): Change starting sequence Change pre-starting voltage Use XFMR LTC Use Starting device What type of starter should be used here? (Cap) Use larger motor Try to change Mtr4 Starting Load from 60% to 40% -- Can Mtr 4 be started? Check for low voltage problem Is there a voltage problem? How to solve it?

3. Exercise 3: Starting Devices Run Dynamic Motor Starting Configuration: Tie-Open, Study Case: MSCase-1 ( Change simulation duration to 15 seconds) Check bus voltage for starting motors. (Mtr1 V < 80%) How can you solve the problem? ( Re-sequencing, start at reduced load, using starter?) Try Using Starting Device What type of starting device to use? Try current control soft starter and Capacitor bank at motor terminal. Is it a good way of solving problem?
