QUESTION: 3

### The per phase circuit equivalent of a synchronous generator feeding a synchronous motor through a transmission line is shown in fig. Each machine is rated 10 kVA, 400V, 50 Hz. The motor is driving a load of 8 kW. The field current of the two machine are so adjusted that the motor terminal voltage is 400V and its pf is 0.8 leading. Find the minimum value of Em (in P.U) for the machine to remain in synchronism. Solution: For maximum Em, δm = 90° limit of stability 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-

Solution:

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 *Answer can only contain numeric values
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)

Solution:

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

QUESTION: 6

A 60 MVA, 11 kV, 50 Hz, Y connected, 3 phase salient pole synchronous motor has direct axis synchronous reactance Xd = 1.8 Ω and quadrature axis synchronous reactance Xq = 1.2 Ω. If the armature resistance is negligible and full load power factor is 0.8 log. The power angle is-

Solution: For logging load in salient pole motor, ψ = 0.338°
δ + ψ = 3.338°
⇒ δ = 0.338° - 36.86° = -36.52°

QUESTION: 7

A 3-phase synchronous motor of 10 KW at 1.3 kV has synchronous reactance of 10 Ω/phase. The efficiency of the machine is 75%. The induced emf (per phase) corresponding to minimum current for full load condition is ____ (in V). Neglect armature resistance.

Solution:

Given that, output to motor (Pout) = 10 kW
Efficiency (η) = 0.75
Motor line current is minimum at cos ϕ = 1  = 13.33 kW
Impedance drop = I × synchronous impedance
= 5.92 × 10 = 59.20 V = 752.89 V

QUESTION: 8

A 400 V, 3ϕ delta connected synchronous motor runs at rated voltage and with an excitation emf of 500 V. Its winding and iron losses are 1800 W and synchronous impedance per phase is (0.7 + 3j) Ω. Calculate the shaft power output in kW

Solution:

Zs = (0.7 + 3j) = 3.08 ∠76.87
Vt = 400 V, Ef = 500 V
Maximum out put power  Shaft power = [3 × 46.49 – 1.8]kW = 137.66 kW
