Starter – operating principle
A starter is a device used to start an internal combustion engine. Electric starters are the most common.
An electric starter is a direct current motor used to rotate the engine crankshaft and provide a proper rotational speed so as to initiate the engine's operation under its own power. Internal combustion engine starters require the greatest amount of electricity from the battery, however only for a short period while starting the engine.
