## What causes current to decrease?

The greater the battery voltage (i.e., electric potential difference), the greater the current. And the greater the resistance, the less the current. … And **an increase in the resistance of the load by a factor of two** would cause the current to decrease by a factor of two to one-half its original value.

## Why does current decrease in a motor?

With **a lower overall voltage across motor’s internal resistance as the motor turns faster**, the current flowing into the motor decreases. The faster the motor spins the less current it draws.

## How can we reduce the starting current of an induction motor?

To compensate for the reactive power during starting then **a parallel capacitor bank can be used with the motor**, either star of delta connected. The capacitances can be calculated for the starting transient and disconnected when the machine has run up to speed. This will help reduce the starting current.

## What causes the induction motor to slow down?

The **injected emf** can either oppose the rotor induced emf or aids the rotor induced emf. If it opposes the rotor induced emf, the total rotor resistance increases and hence the speed is decreased and if the injected emf aids the main rotor emf the total decreases and hence speed increases.

## Why does current decrease when voltage increases?

Ohm’s law states that the electrical current (I) flowing in an circuit is proportional to the voltage (V) and inversely proportional to the resistance (R). Therefore, if the voltage is increased, **the current will increase provided the resistance of the circuit does not change**.

## How do you reduce voltage and maintain current?

In order to lower the amperage of an electrical circuit, you must either lower the circuit’s voltage or increase its resistance. Lowering amperage is done by applying Ohm’s law, given by the formula **I = V/R**, where I is the circuit’s total current in amperes, V is the voltage and R is the resistance.

## What does current do to a motor?

**Increasing Voltage**, Increases the Current Pulled, which Increases the Strength of the coil, which increases the RPM AND Torque of the motor.

## How does current affect motor speed?

The current through the motor **times the resistance of the motor** creates a small voltage that must be subtracted from the applied voltage. As the load and current increase, this IR drop also increases causing the motor to lose a little speed.

## Why is DC motor current so high?

Question: Why is the starting current high in a DC motor? Answer: The starting current **is high as there is no back EMF or counter EMF present in the armature circuit** because atstarting counter EMF is zero. … It’s armature has very less resistance due to this it need more current at starting time.
