(c) ground clearance is decreased
(d) Cheaper conductor is used



Q10. Corona is affected by
(a) condition of atmosphere
(b) size and spacing of conductors
(c) line voltage
(d) all of the above




S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. we generally use series motor.


S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Motor resistance, Rm=0.25+0.3=0.55 Ω;Eb=V 〖-I〗a Rm=220-35×0.55= 200.75 V
Armature torque, Ta=9.55×(Eb Ia)/N=9.55×(200.75×35)/955=70.2625 Nm



S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Lost torque = Ta-Tsh = 97.3 – 91.3 = 6 Nm
Also, Lost torque = 9.55 × (Iron and friction loss)/N
∴ Iron and friction loss = (6 × 850)/9.55= 534.03 W



S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Speed regulation = (N0 -NFL)/NFL ×100=(1875-1825)/1825×100 = 2.74%



S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Voltage



S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. No. load loss, W0=195 W ; Primary Cu loss = I0^2 R1=(7.5)^2×0.07=3.93 W
Iron loss = W0-Primary Cu loss = 195 – 3.93 = 191.07 W



S7. Ans.(a)
Demand Factor=(Max.demand)/(connected load)=21/49=0.428


S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Hydro-electric plant does not require a long starting time. In fact, such a plant can be put into service instantly.



S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Conductor spacing is increased



S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. Corona is affected by condition of atmosphere, size and spacing of conductors & line voltage.
