For maximum Em, δm = 90° limit of stability

Test: Electrical Machines- 8 - Question 4

The rotor of a 50 Hz, 4 poles, 3ϕ synchronous motor is directly coupled to the rotor of a 50 Hz, 6 poles induction motor. If the stators of both machines are given balanced 3ϕ, 50 Hz supplies of rated voltage values. The possible induced frequencies in the rotor of induction motor are-

Detailed Solution for Test: Electrical Machines- 8 - Question 4

We know that, N = 120f/P
Speed of synchronous motor 
Speed of induction motor 
Given that both the rotors are directly coupled.
If rotating field is in the opposite direction to that of rotor speed.
Speed = 1500 + 1000 = 2500 rpm

If rotating field is in the same direction to that of rotor speed,
Speed = 1500 – 1000 = 500 rpm

Test: Electrical Machines- 8 - Question 5

A cylindrical rotor synchronous motor is used to improve the power factor of a load 5 MW at a power factor of 0.6 lag. The motor is required to meet an additional demand of 0.2 MW and raise the overall power factor to 0.8 (lag). If the efficiency of the motor is 75%. The power factor of the motor is – (up to two decimal places)


Detailed Solution for Test: Electrical Machines- 8 - Question 5

Rating of load is –
P1 = 5 MW, cos ϕ1 = 0.6
Q1 = P1 tan ϕ
= 5 × tan (cos-1 (0.6)) = 6.67 MVAR
Required motor output = 0.2 MW
Efficiency = 0.75

Total load = 5 + 0.267 = 5.267 MW
New power factor cos ϕ = 0.8 lag.
Reactive power, Q = P tan ϕ
= 5.267 × tan (cos-1 (0.8))
= 3.95 MVAR
MVA supplied by motor, Q2 = Q1 – Q = 6.67 – 3.95 = 2.72 MVAR
Q2 = P2 tan ϕ2
⇒ 2.72 = 0.267 tanϕ2
⇒ ϕ2 = 84.39°
Cosϕ2 = 0.098
