Can air cooled transformers be applied to motor loads?

This is an excellent application for air cooled transformers. Even though the inrush or starting current is five to seven times normal running current, the resultant lower voltage caused by this momentary overloading is actually beneficial in that a cushioning effect on motor starting is the result.

The tables below illustrate some typical transformer requirements for use with motor applications.
