What are the advantages of star-delta starter  with induction motor?
Answer:(1). The main advantage of using the star
delta starter is reduction of current during the
starting of the motor.Starting current is reduced to 3-4 times Of current of Direct online starting.(2).
Hence the starting current is reduced , the voltage
drops during the starting of motor in systems are

What is meant by regenerative braking?
Answer:When the supply is cutt off for a running
motor, it still continue running due to inertia. In
order to stop it quickly we place a load(resitor)
across the armature winding and the motor should have maintained continuous field supply. so that back e.m.f voltage is made to applyacross the resistor and due to load the motor stops
quickly.This type of breaking is called as
"Regenerative Breaking".
