A transmission line of inductance 0.1 H and resistance 5 ohms is suddenly short-circuited at t = 0 at the bar end ass shown in the figure. The approximate value of the first current maximum (Maximum momentary current) is

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 6 - Question 5

Z = 5 + j 314 × 0.1 = 5 + j 31.4 = 31.8 ∠81°


= 3.14 sin (314 t - 66) + 2.87 e-50 t

First current maximum of symmetrical short circuit current occurs at

57.3 × 314 t - 66 = 90°

⇒ t = 0.00867 sec

First current maximum

Test: Power Systems- 6 - Question 6

Two power stations S1 and S2 are interconnected through a transmission line of per unit (p.u) reactance of 0.6. Station S1 has one generator of P.U. the reactance of 0.3, and station S2 has two generators of p.u reactance 0.6 each. For a 3 – phase symmetrical short circuit at the middle of the transmission line (point F). The change in the value of the equivalent fault reactance, with one of the generators of S2 removed, is _____ (in %).


Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 6 - Question 6

Equivalent reactance with respect to fault point =(0.3 + 0.3) || (0.3 + (0.6 || 0.6))

=0.6 || (0.3 + 0.3)

= 0.3

After removal of one of the generators of S2 with respect to fault point

= (0.3 + 0.3) || (0.3 + 0.6)

= (0.6) || (0.9) = 0.36
Change in the reactance = 
= 20%

Test: Power Systems- 6 - Question 10

Two 300 MVA, 22 kV, 3-phase, 60 Hz alternators are connected by a transmission line having transformers at both ends as shown in the single line diagram given below

The transformer (T1) between the generator 1 and the transmission line is a Δ-Y connected 3-phase transformer bank made up of three single phase transformers each rated at 120 MVA, 22 kV/127 kV with leakage reactance of 8%. The generator 2 is connected to the line by a 3-phase, 300 MVA, 22 kV/220 kV, Δ-Y transformer (T2) with 10% leakage reactance. The star side of T1 and T2 are grounded. The zero sequence reactance of the transmission line is 81 Ω. Considering the MVA rating of T1 as the base, the zero-sequence network of the complete system is (Assume Xg1 and Xg2 are the zero sequence reactance of the generators respectively)

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 6 - Question 10

Given that base MVA is the rating of T1

Rating of single phase transformer of 3-phase transformer bank = 12 MVA

Rating of 3-phase transformer bank = 3 × 120 = 360 MVA

It is connected in Δ Y connection.

Primary voltage of three phase transformer bank = Primary voltage of single phase transformer = 22 kV

Secondary voltage of three phase transformer bank = √3 × secondary voltage of single phase transformer = √3 × 127kV = 220kV

XT1 (for single phase transformer) = j0.08

XT1 = (for three phase transformer)

XT1 = j0.08 pu

XT2 (old) = j0.10

= j 0.12 pu

Given that, reactance of transmission line (XL) = 81Ω


As the generator reactance values are not given, let assume zero sequence reactance of generator 1 and generator 2 are Xg1 and Xg2 respectively.

Now, the zero-sequence network becomes.
