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

Solution

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)
Sol.

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.
