Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 1

When series reactor is used in generating stations, the fault current magnitude is

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 1

Fault current is inversely proportional to reactance of the network. Therefore with series reactor, the fault current magnitude is reduced. It is preferred in the generating stations in some special applications for limiting the current flowing through the low MVA rating circuit breakers.

Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 7

What is the maximum length (in km) for a single phase transmission line having a copper conductor of 0.8 cm2 cross-section over which 250 kW at unity power factor and at 3 kV are to be delivered?

The efficiency of transmission is 90%. The specific resistance as 2 μΩ-cm.


Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 7

Receiving end power = 250 kW

Efficiency of transmission = 90%
Sending end power = 
Line losses = 277.78− 250 = 27.78kW
Line current, I

Let R be the resistance of one conductor.

Line losses = 2I2R
⇒27.78 × 10= 2(83.33)2R
⇒ R = 2 Ω

= 8 km

Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 8

Two overhead Lines ‘P’ and ‘Q’ are connected in parallel to supply a load of 10 MW at 0.8 pf lagging. The resistance and reactance of line ‘P’ are 3 Ω and 4 Ω, respectively and of the Line, ‘Q’ is 4 Ω and 3 Ω respectively. The power supplied by the ‘P’ is

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 8

Impedance of Line P, ZP = 3 + j4 = 5∠53.13° Ω   

Impedance of Line Q, ZQ = 4 + j3 = 5∠36.86° Ω   


Total load supplied in kVA

Load supplied by Line P

= 6313.45 kVA at pf 0.708

Power supplied by Line P,

P = 6313.45 × 0.707 = 4.46 MW

Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 9

The load on an installation is 600 kW, 0.8 lagging p.f. which works for 3000 hours per annum. The tariff is Rs. 100 per KVA plus 20 Paise per kWh. If the power factor is improved to 0.9 lagging by means of loss of free capacitors costing Rs. 60 per kVAR, calculate the annual cost saving (in Rupees). Allow 10% per annum for interest and depreciation on capacitors.


Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 9

D = 600 kW

Cosϕ1 = 0.8

Cosϕ2 = 0.9

Loading KVAR taken by the capacitors.

= P (tanϕ1 – tanϕ2)

= 600 (tan (cos-1(0.8)) – tan (cos-1 (0.9)))

= 159.41 KVAR

Annual cost before p.f. correction

Maximum KVA demand = 600/0.8=750

KVA demand charges = 750 × 100 = 75,000

Units consumed per annum = 600 × 3000 = 1800000 kWh

Energy charges per year = 0.2 × 1800000 = 360000

Total annual cost = 75000 + 360000 = 435000

Annual cost after p.f. correction

Maximum KVA demand =600/0.9 = 666.67

KVA demand charges = 666.67 × 100 = 66, 667

Energy charges = 360000

Capital cost of capacitors = 60 × 159.41 = 9564.6

Annual interest and depreciation = 0.1 × 9564.6 = 956.46

Total annual cost = 66667 + 360000 + 956.46 = 427623. 46

Annual saving = 435000 – 427623.46 = 7376.54

Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 10

Two generators rated 250 MW and 400 MW are operating in parallel. The droop characteristics of the governors are 4% and 6% respectively.if a load of 450 MW is share between them. What will be the system frequency? Assume nominal system frequency is 60 Hz and no governing action.

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 2 - Question 10

Let, Load on generator 1 = x MW

Load on generator 2 = (450 – x) MW

Reduction in frequency = Δf

Now,

 

∴ x = 217.81 MW (load on generator 1)

450 – x = 232.18 MW (load on generator 2)

and Δf = 2.09Hz

∴ System frequency = (60 – 2.09) = 57.909 Hz.
