Large single-phase motors (15-50 hp) have been developed. These are capacitor start-capacitor run squirrel-cage induction motors. They are designed with very low inrush current and have low starting torque. Breakdown torque and full-load (FL) performance are normal for single-phase motors. These motors are specifically designed for crop dryer fans, irrigation pumps, forage blowers, liquid manure pumps, any application where low starting torque (50-percent FL) is sufficient.
