Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 6

The non-uniform distribution of voltage across the units in a string of suspension insulators is due to:

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

Important points regarding the voltage distribution over a string of suspension insulators:

1) Due to the presence of shunt capacitor, the voltage across the suspension insulators does not distribute itself uniformly across the each disc.

2) The voltage across the nearest disc to the conductor is maximum than others disc.

3) The unit nearest to the conductor is under maximum electrical stress and is likely to be punctured.

4) In the case of D.C voltage, the voltage across each unit would be the same. It is because insulator capacitance are ineffective for D.C.

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 7

What does 100% string efficiency imply?

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 7

The Ratio of the voltage across the whole string to the product of numbers of discs and the voltage across the disc nearest to the conductor is known as string efficiency.

The greater the string efficiency, the more uniform is the voltage distribution in the each disc insulator. 100% string efficiency implies that the potential across each disc is same.

And it also provides extra mechanical protection and strength to cable.

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 10

Radial system is used when:

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

In radial distribution system, different feeders radially came out from the substation and connected to the primary of distribution transformer.

It is cheapest to build, and is widely used in sparsely populated areas. A radial system has only one power source for a group of customers. A power failure, short-circuit, or a downed power line would interrupt power in the entire line which must be fixed before power can be restored.

Hence it is used when energy is to be produced on low potential.

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 11

Which of the following is most commonly used is secondary distribution?

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 11

1-phase 2-wire: In this, one of the two wires is earthed or mid-point of phase winding is earthed. This system is used for very short distances

1-phase 3-wire: This system is identical in principle with 3-wire dc distribution system. The neutral wire is centre-tapped from the secondary winding of the transformer and earthed. This system is also called as split-phase electricity distribution system

2-phase 3-wire: In this system, the neutral wire is taken from the junction of two phase windings whose voltages are in quadrature with each other. The voltage between neutral wire and either of the outer phase wires is V whereas, the voltage between outer phase wires is √2V. As compared to a two-phase 4-wire system, this system suffers from voltage imbalance due to unsymmetrical voltage in the neutral

3-phase 4-wire: This system uses star connected phase windings and the fourth wire or neutral wire is taken from the star point. If the voltage of each winding is V, then the line-to-line voltage (line voltage) is √3V and the line-to-neutral voltage (phase voltage) is V. This type of distribution system is widely used in India for secondary distribution

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 17

Which of the following relay, operates when current exceeds a present value?

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 17

Over current relay: It operates or picks up when its current exceeds a predetermined value (setting value). It protects electrical power systems against excessive currents which are caused by short circuits, ground faults, etc.

Differential relay: It is defined as the relay that operates when the phase difference of two or more identical electrical quantities exceeds a predetermined amount. The differential relay works on the principle of comparison between the phase angle and magnitude of two or more similar electrical quantities.

Static relay: The relay which does not contain any moving parts is known as the static relay. In such type of relays, the output is obtained by the static components like magnetic and electronic circuit etc.

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 18

Pitot relay is to be attached to a pipe that connects a transformer body and a conservator in order to detect any trouble and to protect the transformer from any accident. It has slight failure contacts to detect gas accumulation as well as serious failure contacts to detect rapid flow of insulation liquid. It is sued for high speed tripping.

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 19

If some reserve is available in a power plant,

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 19

Plant capacity factor: It is the ratio of the average demand on the station and the maximum installed capacity of the station

Plant use factor: It is the ratio of kW generated to the product of the plant capacity and the number of hours for which the plant was in operation

Reserve capacity is the difference between plant capacity and maximum demand

Reserve capacity = plant capacity - maximum demand

Given that some reserve capacity is available, that means plant capacity is greater than maximum demand.

Capacity factor = load factor × use factor

Load factor is always less than one. Hence plant’s use factor is always greater than its capacity factor

Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 20

Two areas A and B have equal connected loads however load diversity in area A is more than in B then:

Detailed Solution for Test: Power Systems- 3 - Question 20

Diversity factor is the ratio of the sum of the maximum demands of a group of consumers and the simultaneous maximum demand of the group of consumers

Diversity factor = connected load/maximum demand

Given that connected load is same for both A and B

Then, diversity factor is inversely proportional to maximum demand

Given that diversity factor in area A is more hence maximum demand of A is less than maximum demand of B
