(a) Series inductive compensator in the line
(b) Shunt inductive compensator at the receiving end
(c) Series capacitive compensator in the line

(b) To increase speed of the aluminum disc
(c) To count the rotation
(d) To balance the system from vibration

(a) copper loss
(b) eddy current loss
(c) hysteresis loss
(d) all of the above
Q5. If coper loss of transformer at 7/8th full load is 4900 W, then its full load copper loss
(b) 6400 W
(c) 373 W
(d) 429 W
Q6. In a series L-C-R circuit, resistance R = 20 Ω and the impedance Z = 20Ω. The phase difference between the current and the voltage is
Sol. DC series motor: Starting torque is high.
DC shunt motor: better speed regulation or constant speed.
Sol. Power flow in line ⍺1/(reactance of the line)
Series capacitive compensation reduces the reactance of the line.
Sol. Copper shading is provided on the shunt magnet’s central limb to make the phase angle displacement between the magnetic field set up by the shunt magnet and supply voltage Approx. 90°
Sol. To reduce eddy current loss laminated cores are used.
Sol. Copper loss at fractional load=x² full load copper loss
Sol. For series resonant circuit: Z=R(i.e.X_L=X_C)
So, a circuit is basically resistive in nature. Hence, the phase difference between V and I is 0⁰.
