Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 1

Shunt capacitance is neglected in the analysis of which transmission lines?

Detailed Solution for Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 1

Types of transmission lines:
Depending upon the length of the line, it is divided into three types:

Shunt capacitance is neglected in the analysis of short transmission lines. This is because:
The capacitive reactance is given by:

Since the value of length (l) is small in the short transmission lines, therefore the reactance becomes very high.
High reactance means an open circuit, hence effect of capacitance is neglected in the short transmission lines.

Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 3

When the length of an overhead transmission line is less than 80 km with an operating voltage upto 20 kV, it is considered to be a/an ___________.

Detailed Solution for Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 3

Classification of Overhead Transmission Lines:

  • A transmission line has three constants R, L, and C distributed uniformly along the whole length of the line.
  • The resistance and inductance form the series impedance.
  • The capacitance existing between conductors for a 1-phase line or from a conductor to neutral for a 3-phase line forms a shunt path throughout the length of the line. Therefore, capacitance effects introduce complications in transmission line calculations.

 
Depending upon the manner in which capacitance is taken into account, the overhead transmission lines are classified as:
Short transmission lines:

When the length of an overhead transmission line is up to about 50 km to 80 km and the line voltage is comparatively low (< 20 kV), it is usually considered as a short transmission line. Due to smaller lengths and lower voltage, the capacitance effects are small and hence can be neglected. Therefore, while studying the performance of a short transmission line, only the resistance and inductance of the line are taken into account.

Medium transmission lines:
When the length of an overhead transmission line is about 80-150 km and the line voltage is moderately high (>20 kV < 100 kV), it is considered a medium transmission line. Due to the sufficient length and voltage of the line, the capacitance effects are taken into account. For purposes of calculations, the distributed capacitance of the line is divided and lumped in the form of condensers shunted across the line at one or more points.

Long transmission lines:
When the length of an overhead transmission line is more than 150 km and line voltage is very high (> 100 kV), it is considered a long transmission line. For the treatment of such a line, the line constants are considered uniformly distributed over the whole length of the line and rigorous methods are employed for the solution

Detailed Solution for Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 4

Switching surges are the governing factor in the design of insulation for EHV and UHV transmission lines.

Origins of switching overvoltage:

  • Energization of transmission lines and cables
  • Switching of high-voltage reactors
  • Switching of transformers that are loaded by a reactor on their tertiary winding
  • Switching of a transformer at no load
  • Switching at intermediate substations
  • Fault initiation and clearing
Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 5

The effective length of a short transmission line is less than __________. 

Detailed Solution for Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 5

Short transmission lines:

  • The effective length of a short transmission line is less than 80 km.
  • When the length of an overhead transmission line is up to about 50 km to 80 km and the line voltage is comparatively low (< 20 kV), it is usually considered as a short transmission line. 
  • Due to smaller lengths and lower voltage, the capacitance effects are small and hence can be neglected.
  • Therefore, while studying the performance of a short transmission line, only the resistance and inductance of the line are taken into account.
Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 6

A single phase overhead transmission line delivers a power of 5500 kW to a load at 11 kV. The receiving end voltage leads the current by 45°. The resistance and the inductive reactance of the transmission line are 10 Ω and 10 Ω respectively. The sending end voltages is

Detailed Solution for Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 6

Concept:
Short Transmission Line:

When the length of the overhead transmission line is up to about 50 km and the line voltage is comparatively up to 20 kV.
Due to smaller lengths and lower voltage, the capacitance effect is small and may be neglected.
Considered a short transmission line of resistance R and Reactance XL over a length.

Vs is the sending end voltage
VR is the receiving end voltage
I is the load current.
cos ϕR is receiving end power factor
and, cos ϕs is sending end power factor
The phasor diagram of the system can be drawn by taking load current as a reference,

From the phasor,
(OC)2 = (OD)2 + (DC)2
(OC)2 = (OE + ED)2 + (DB + BC)2
V2S = (VR cos ϕR + IR)2 + (VR sin ϕR + IXL)2  

Calculation:
Given, P = 5500 kW
VR = 11 kV
R = 10 Ω
XL = 10 Ω
P = VR I cos ϕR
cos ϕR = cos (45°) = 0.707

From above concept,

sin ϕR = 0.707
(VR cos ϕR + IR) = (11000 × 0.707) + (707.21 × 10) = 14849 volt
(VR sin ϕR + IXL) = (11000 × 0.707) + (707.21 × 10) = 14849 volt

⇒ VS = 21 kV

Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 7

Which type of transmission line has length up to 80 km?

Detailed Solution for Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 7

Short Transmission Line:

  • When the length of the overhead transmission line is up to about 50 km  - 80 km and the line voltage is comparatively up to 20 kV.
  • Due to smaller lengths and lower voltage, the capacitance effect is small and may be neglected.

Considered a short transmission line of resistance R and Reactance XL over a length.

Vs is the sending end voltage
VR is the receiving end voltage
I is the load current.
cos ϕR is receiving end power factor
and, cos ϕs is sending end power factor
The phasor diagram of the system can be drawn by taking load current as a reference,

From the phasor,
(OC)2 = (OD)2 + (DC)2
(OC)2 = (OE + ED)2 + (DB + BC)2
V2S = (VR cos ϕR + IR)2 + (VR sin ϕR + IXL)2   

Transmission efficiency (η):
The power obtained at the receiving end of a transmission line is generally less than the sending end power due to losses in the line resistance.

The ratio of receiving end power (Power delivered) to the sending end power (Power supplied) of a transmission line is known as the transmission efficiency of the line.

Hence, η = (Power delivered  / Power supplied × 100)

Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 8

A single phase load of 100 KVA is delivered at 2000 V over a transmission line having R = 1.4 Ω and X = 0.8 Ω, when the power factor of load is unity, the voltage at sending end is

Detailed Solution for Test: Short Transmission Line - Question 8

Concept:
In a single phase transmission line
VS = VR + IL∠ϕ Z
Where,
VS = Sending end voltage
VR = Receiving end voltage
IL = Current flowing through the transmission line
Z = Impedance of line
ϕ = Phase angle
Calculation:
Given-
SL = 100 kVA
VR = 2000 V
cos ϕ = 1, ϕ = 0°
Z = R + j X = 1.4 +j 0.8
|IL|= 100 x 103 / 2000 = 50 A
IL ∠ϕ = 50 ∠0°
Now sending end voltage is
VS = 2000 + 50 ∠0° (1.4 +j 0.8)
VS = 2000 + 50(cos0° + sin0°)(1.4 +j 0.8)
VS = 2000 + 70 + j40
VS = 2070 + j40
VS = 2070.40∠1.1°
|V­S| = 2070.40 V

Vs is the sending end voltage
VR is the receiving end voltage
I is the load current.
cos ϕR is receiving end power factor
and, cos ϕs is sending end power factor
The phasor diagram of the system can be drawn by taking load current as a reference,

From the phasor,
(OC)2 = (OD)2 + (DC)2
(OC)2 = (OE + ED)2 + (DB + BC)2
V2S = (VR cos ϕR + IR)2 + (VR sin ϕR + IXL)2
