QUESTION: 2

### An interconnected cable having a reactance of j0.2 pu links two generating stations G1 and G2 as shown below. If |V1| = |V2| = 1 pu, the reactive power demand by transmission line is ______ (in pu) Solution: Reactive power demand by transmission line

= |I2| X

= (5)2 × 0.2

= 5 pu

QUESTION: 3

### A three-phase overhead transmission line has its conductors horizontally spaced with spacing between adjacent conductors to ‘d’. If now the conductors of the line are rearranged to form an equilateral triangle of sides equal to d then Solution:

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

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)

Solution: 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

Solution:

L = 50 km

Ceq = 0.2 μF / km

cph=2×Ceqcph=2×Ceq

= 0.4 μF / km = 1.596 A / km QUESTION: 7

In a 5 insulator disc, string capacitance between each unit and earth is 1/6th of the mutual capacitance. The voltage distribution across the middle unit as % of the voltage applied is –

Solution: Given that, = 3.12 V1

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

V3 in percentage of V is *Answer can only contain numeric values
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)

Solution:

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

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

Solution:

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

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 ____ Solution: = 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.
