What need to be concerned to start a motor?

First, you need to know power (rated power and rated current) of your power source with whom you will supply your motor. For example, if you want to supply your motor by using low voltage synchronous generator (through high voltage power transformer), you need to know rated power and rated current of synchronous generator and rated power and rated currents of high voltage power transformer. This information is very important because if you don't have powerful source for supplying your motor, there is possibility that you'll never reach rated rotational speed during rated time which means that you'll not start your motor.

Second, you need to know kind of your motor. Is that motor asynchronous motor with cage rotor or is that asynchronous motor with sliding rings? This information is very important because these kinds of asynchronous motors have different values of starting current: for asynchronous motors with cage rotor starting current is 6-8 times higher than rated current of mentioned kind of motor while for asynchronous motors with sliding rings starting current is 3-5 times higher than rated current of mentioned kind of motor. Also, too much higher starting current of your motor could be a reason for unallowed warming of windings of stator what it could lead to dangerous consequences, first all, for people in surrounding of motor and then also for equipment in surrounding of motor.

In relation with start of your motor with lower voltage because you will, on that way, reduce starting current 2 times and starting torque will be 4 times lower than rated torque of your motor. On that way, you will easily start your motor.
