So delta / star transfor'er is used for li+tin loads. &9(5-at are t-e ad!antages of star:delta starter wit- induction motor7 ã (1)#+e 'ain ad,antae of usin t+e star delta starter is reduction of current durin t+e startin of t+e 'otor. Startin current is reduced to 8 ti'es ?f current of Direct online startin. ã (7) Hence t+e startin current is reduced  t+e ,oltae drops durin t+e startin of 'otor in s ste's are reduced. &$(5-at is meant ,y regenerati!e ,raking7 ã &+en t+e suppl is cut off for a runnin 'otor it still continue runnin due to inertia. $n order to stop it quicl we place a load (resistor) across t+e ar'ature windin and t+e 'otor s+ould +a,e 'aintained continuous field suppl . so t+at bac e.'.f ,oltae is 'ade to appl across t+e resistor and due to load t+e 'otor stops quicl . #+is t pe of breain is called as  26eenerati,e reain3. &#(5-en !oltage increases t-en current also increases t-en w-at is t-e need of o!er !oltage relay and o!er current relay7 +an we measure o!er !oltage and o!er current ,y measuring current only7  ã o. &e cant sense t+e o,er ,oltae b ust 'easurin t+e current onl because t+e current increases not onl for o,er ,oltaes but also for under ,oltae (*s 'ost of t+e loads are non8linear in nature).So t+e o,er ,oltae protection B o,er current protection are co'pletel different. ã ?,er ,oltae rela 'eant for sensin o,er ,oltaes B protect t+e s ste' fro' insulation brea down and firin. ?,er current rela 'eant for sensin an internal s+ort circuit o,er load condition eart+ fault t+ereb reducin t+e s ste' failure B ris of fire.
