Q: Start capacitor application
A: Start capacitors are used to briefly shift phase start windings in single phase electric motors to create an increase in torque. They possess very large capacitance values for their size and voltage rating. As a result, they are only intended for intermittent duty. For this reason, start capacitors will fail after being left energized for too long due to a faulty starting circuit on a motor.
