Since GMR and r same in both cases L/ph proposal to Ln (G.M.D) and C/ph proposal to 1/Ln (GMD)

∴ Capacitance will increase and inductance will decrease

*Answer can only contain numeric values
Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 4

The string efficiency of a string insulator with the bottom unit having a 50 % of the total voltage is 40%. The number of units in the string insulator is____

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 4

⇒ n = 5

*Answer can only contain numeric values
Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 5

An electric train taking of constant current of 800A moves on a section of line between two substations 10 km apart maintained at 600 and 640 V respectively the track resistance is 0.05 Ω/km both go and return. The point of minimum potential along the track is at a distance from 640 V substation is – (in km)

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 5

Potential of P, Vp = 600 – I1 (0.05)x

= 640 – (800 – I1) (0.05) (10 – x)

⇒ (800 – I1) (0.05) (10 – x) = 40 + I1 (0.05) x

⇒ (800 – I1) (10 – x) = 800 + I1 x

⇒ 800 + I1 x  – 10I1 – 800x = 800 + I1 x

⇒ 100I1 + 800x = 7200

⇒ I1 = 720 – 80 x

Now, Vp = 600 – (720 – 80x) 0.05 x

= 600 – 360x + 4x2

For Vp to be minimum

⇒ -36 + 8x = 0

⇒ x = 4.5 km

Distance from 640V substation is = 10 – x = 5.5 km

*Answer can only contain numeric values
Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 6

A 50 km long cable has a capacitance of 0.2 μF/km between any two conductors. When the other conductor is connected to sheath. The supply voltage is 22 kV, 50 Hz, 3 – ϕ. The charging current IPh is________ (in A)

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 6

L = 50 km

Ceq = 0.2 μF / km

cph=2×Ceqcph=2×Ceq

= 0.4 μF / km

= 1.596 A / km

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 7

V= V1 + V2 + V3 + V4 + V5 = 8.95

V3 in percentage of V is

*Answer can only contain numeric values
Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 8

A 3 phase line has conductors 1 cm in diameter spaced equilaterally 2 m apart. The dielectric strength of air is 30 kV (max) per cm. Air density factor is taken as 0.9 and irregularity factor is 0.85. The disruptive critical voltage (rms), for the line is ________ (in kV)

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 8

Given that,

Diameter of conductor (D) = 1 cm

Distance between conductors (d) = 2m

Dielectric strength of air (gmax) = 30 kV/cm

Air density factor (δ) = 0.9

Irregularity factor (m) = 0.85

The critical disruptive voltage is given by

= 48.585 kV/phase.

Disruptive voltage for the line = 48.585 × √3 = 84.15 kV

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 9

The capacitance of a 3-core lead sheathed cable measured between any two of the conductors with sheath earthed is 0.3 μF per km. Determine the equivalent star connected capacity and the MVA required to keep 20 km of the cable charged when connected to 25 kV, 50 Hz supply

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 9

The equivalent circuit is shown in fig.

Given that, capacitance is 0.3 μF/km

For 20 km cable, capacitance is 0.3 × 20 = 6 μF

Since, the capacitance measured is 6 μF between the conductors, the capacitance per phase = 2 × 6 = 12 μF

3-phase MVA required

= V2ωc = (25 × 1 03) 2× 2π × 50 × 12 × 10−6

= 2.356 MVA

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 10

A 3 phase line operating at 150 kV which has a conductor of 1.5 cm diameter arranged in a 4-meter delta. Assume air density factor of 1.2 and the dielectric strength of air to be 21kVcm21kVcm. Calculate the corona loss ____

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 10

= 21 × 1.2 × 1 × 0.75 ln

Line to line voltage is = 205.55 kV

Since the operating voltage is 150 kV, the corona loss will be absent.

⇒ Corona loss = 0.
