Change autotransformer to VFD or soft starter

What the parameters needed if we change from autotransformer (6.6kv/3.3kv) to VFD or Soft starter?

Since you got Auto Transformer 6.6/3.3 kV mean you have inductive load with constant speed in that case you should go for Soft starter, best way is collect all the motor data and send it to Soft Starter manufacturer along with the motor starting curve if available also you may ask for capacitor bank for PF improvement.

If you're planning to use a Soft Starter or VFD for motor starting, you need to specify the horsepower rating, voltage rating, rated frequency, the type of motor (induction wound rotor or induction squirrel cage), the type of motor load (compressor, pump), motor load starting torque requirement and motor loading cycle. This information is important in selecting the type or model of the Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) or Soft Starter unit.
