A. It cannot be reversed, ordinarily
B. It requires no D.C. field excitation for its operation
C. It is nothing else but a single-phase, salient pole synchronous-induction motor
D. Its squirrel cage-rotor is of unsym-metrical magnetic construction in order to vary reluctance path between stator and rotor

To reverse the direction of rotation of acapacitor start motor while it is running we should___________?

A. disconnect motor from the supply till it stops then reconnect it to supply with reversed connection of main or auxiliary winding
B. disconnect motor from supply and immediately reconnect it to supply with reversed connections of the main winding
C. reverse the direction of connection of the auxiliary winding and after motor comes to rest then connect auxiliary winding to the supply
D. reverse the direction of connections of the auxiliary winding and immediately connect it to supply
