The most common practice for starting a single-phase induction motor is to connect a starting capacitor, in series, with the auxiliary winding. Here, the possibility of using an electronic switch in parallel with the starting capacitor, is discussed. This work relates particularly to a switching device for electrically connecting and removing the auxiliary winding and starting capacitor from the single-phase induction motor's circuitry. The starting capacitor with the auxiliary winding are disconnected by electronic means as the motor gains speed hence leaving only the main winding in the motor circuit for normal operation.
