DC Motor Starter Guide using Arduino Uno Board

Whenever a DC MOTOR starts, it poses unique challenges. The primary issue being the requirement of a starting current that is 5 to 6 times the load current. Such huge starting current can be damaging as it overheats the motor’s armature winding and results in a sudden voltage drop in the power supply.
Check out this experiment which came up during a science project in Cochin that uses a arduino board as a DC motor starter.
