Single phase to three phase current

Hello all

I’ve recently setup a 6 HP 10 stage Texmo Taro pump in my farm and instead of traditional starter, I went for a Direct online starter that can be controlled using a 4G SIM.

After installing it, there seems to be a problem using the panel without 3 phase current. While there are other neighbouring bore wells working on single or double phase, mine doesn’t. I need above 300 volts on all 3 for it to start.

Hence I want to consult if there are other famers with similar problem and what can be done to overcome the problem?

I don’t have an individual TC and share it with other 8-10 farmers.

I’m reading there are one phase to three phase converters that you can use but is it practical and cost efficient?

Would appreciate some feedback. Thanks in advance.

Is your motor 3-phase or single phase?

For domestic purposes, we use phase shifters etc to switch from 3-phase to single phase. This can be manual or automatic. For farms it needs to be an industrial solution. Might be expensive.

Please paste the nameplate details for both.

Yes it’s a 3 phase motor

More details would be helpful
I also had texmo taro 6 hp motor and I had mobile starter
I had used kisanraja mobile starter
These mobile starters come with built in voltage sensors and they function only when there is balanced voltage(all three phases within 10% voltage difference)
I also used L&T mPower Pro which also had same issues
It is to protect motor from damage
