Sol. In repulsion motor, no electromagnetic torque is developed when the angle between the stator and rotor magnetic flux axis is either 0 or 90°. But actually, the brush axis occupies a position somewhere in between α = 0° and α = 90° as shown in figure below.
NOTE: In repulsion motor, maximum torque is developed when Brush axis is 45⁰ electrical to field axis.
Sol. An over-excited synchronous motor has a leading power factor. This makes it useful for power factor correction of industrial loads. If DC field excitation of a synchronous motor is such that back EMF Eb is greater than applied voltage V, then the motor is said to be over excited. An over excited synchronous motor draws leading current.
Sol. Relay used for different configuration of transmission lines……
• Short transmission line: reactance relay
• Medium transmission line: impedance relay
• Long transmission line: mho relay
Sol. A dynamometer gives average value of active power over a cycle.
