  • Page 14: Principle Of Operation Of The 3rw44 Electronic Soft Starter

    2.1.2 Principle of operation of the 3RW44 electronic soft starter The 3RW44 soft starter features two antiparallel thyristors in each of the phases. There is one thyristor for the positive and one thyristor for the negative half-wave. The rms value of the motor voltage is increased (from an adjustable starting voltage or starting torque) to the rated motor voltage within a definable starting time by means of the leading-edge phase.
