The voltage and current instantaneous values are given as V = Vm sin (ωt + θ1) pu I = Im sin (ωt + θ2) pu Apparent power in pu (Spu) = (Vm *Im )/2 Active power in pu (Ppu) = (Vm *Im )/2*cos (θ1-θ2) Reactive power (Qpu) = (Vm *Im )/2*sin (θ1-θ2) From given data, Active power in pu (Ppu) = 5*2/2 * cos (30+15) = 3.535 pu
02․ The angular moment of 10 MVA generator is 0.2. Find the new value of angular moment for 20 MVA base?
Angular moment (M) in pu = M/Sb Sb = Base MVA Mpun = Mpuo* (MVA)bo/(MVA)bn Here, "n" represents the new values "o" represents the old values Mpun = 0.2*10/20 = 0.1 pu
03․ The per unit impedance Z(pu) is given by
Zpu = ZΩ* (MVA)b/(KV)²b Where, Zpu = Per unit impedance ZΩ = Impedance in Ω (MVA)b = Base MVA (KV)b = Base voltage
04․ The per unit impedance of a circuit element is 0.30. If the base kV and base MVA are halved, then the new value of the per unit impedance of the circuit element will be
Zpu = ZΩ* (MVA)b/(kV)²b Where, Zpu = Per unit impedance ZΩ = Impedance in Ω (MVA)b = Base MVA (kV)b = Base voltage Zpun = Zpuo * (MVA)bn/(MVA)bo * (kV)²bo/(kV)²bn Here, "n" represents the new values "o" represents the old values Zpun = 0.30* 1/2 *4 = 0.60 pu

Zpu = ZΩ* (MVA)b/(KV)²b Where, Zpu = Per unit impedance ZΩ = Impedance in Ω (MVA)b = Base MVA (KV)b = Base voltage Zpu = 2 * 100/10² = 2 pu
06․ For a 500 Hz frequency excitation, a 100 km long power line will be modelled as
Classification of transmission lines: Short transmission line = Length(L) < 80 km and product of length(L) and frequency(f) L.f< 4000 Medium transmission line = 80 km ≤ L ≤ 200 Km and 4000 ≤ L.f ≤ 10000 Long transmission line = L > 200 km and L.f >10000
07․ The charging current of a 400 kV line is more than that of a 220 kV line of the same length?
Charging current Ic= V/Xc Where, V = Voltage Xc = Charging reactance = 1/(2πfl) l = length of the transmission line Charging current Ic= V*2πfl Ic ∝ V Therefore, the given statement is correct statement.
08․ If in a line, resistance and reactance are found to be equal and regulation is zero, then load will have
Voltage regulation= (Vs - Vr)/Vr = Ir(R cosφ ± X sinφ)/Vr For lagging load: Voltage regulation = Ir(R cosφ + X sinφ)/Vr For leading load: Voltage regulation = Ir(R cosφ - X sinφ)/Vr For unity load power factor: Voltage regulation = Ir(R cosφ)/Vr Therefore, zero voltage regulation is possible only for leading power factor. From given data Cosφ = X/Z = 1/√2 = 0.707 leading
09․ The voltage regulation of a line at full load 0.8 power factor is 11. A long transmission line under no load conditions, for a good voltage profile needs
Under no load conditions or light load conditions of a transmission line, receiving end voltage is greater than sending ending voltage will occur in case of medium and transmission lines. This is called ferranti effect. This is due to capacitance effect is dominating compare to inductance of transmission line under no load only. To over come this problem, shunt reactors are connected at receiving end.
10․ The load current in short circuit calculations are neglected because
The load current in short circuit calculations are neglected because 1. Short circuit currents are much larger than load currents 2. Short circuit currents are greatly out of phase with load currents Therefore, both statements are correct statements.
