## Manual for K-Notes

Why K-Notes?
Towards the end of preparation, a student has lost the time to revise all the chapters from his /
her class notes / standard text books. This is the reason why K-Notes is specifically intended for
Quick Revision and should not be considered as comprehensive study material.
What are K-Notes?
A 40 page or less notebook for each subject which contains all concepts covered in GATE
Curriculum in a concise manner to aid a student in final stages of his/her preparation. It is highly
useful for both the students as well as working professionals who are preparing for GATE as it
comes handy while traveling long distances.
When do I start using K-Notes?
It is highly recommended to use K-Notes in the last 2 months before GATE Exam
(November end onwards).
How do I use K-Notes?
Once you finish the entire K-Notes for a particular subject, you should practice the respective
Subject Test / Mixed Question Bag containing questions from all the Chapters to make best use of
it.

Where E1 and E2 are emf in primary and secondary windings of Transformer respectively.
is the flux in the transformer and m is maximum value of flux.
The polarity of emf is decided on basis of Lenz Law as currents in primary and secondary
should be such that primary and secondary flux should oppose each other.
Also, primary current enters the positive terminal of primary winding as primary absorbs
power and secondary current leaves the positive terminal of secondary winding as
secondary delivers power and this way we can mark emf polarities.

Three Phase Transformers
In a 3-Phase transformers; the windings placed parallel to each other at as primary & secondary of
single phase transformer.
Rules to draw Phasor diagram
1) Always draw phasors from A to B, B to C & C to A for line voltages.
2) The end points should have same naming as the input or output terminals.
3) If we draw primary phasor from dotted to undotted terminal and if secondary voltage is also
from dotted to undotted, then secondary voltage is in same phase else in opposite phase.
Some examples

Phasor

If you observe carefully, we traverse from dotted to undotted terminal in primary while
going from a2 to b2 , b2 to c2 & c2 to a2 .
Same is the case when we traverse the secondary winding, so secondary voltage are inphase to primary.

Then, we draw reference phasors from neutral to terminal and mark it with phase with
same name as terminal it is pointed to.
Then we plot it on clock & we observe it is like 12 0 clock so name is Dd12
connection.

Another example

Phasor

o Here, we traversed primary from dotted to undotted terminal & in secondary from undotted
to dotted so all secondary phasor are out of phase wrt primary.
Parallel operation of Transformer
Necessary Conditions
1) Voltage ratings of both transformers should be same.
2) Transformers should have same polarity.
3) Phase sequence of both transformers must be same in case of 3- phase transformers.
4) Phase displacement between secondarys of both transformers must be 0 .

If no-load voltage is same for all types of generators:

## There are two categories of compound generators/motors

2. Differentially Compound => If series field flux opposes the shunt field flux.

Conditions for voltage build-up in Shunt Generator
1) There must be residual flux.
2) Correct polarity of field winding with respect to armature winding so that field flux aids
residual flux for a given direction of rotation.
3) Field Resistance must be less than critical value

R f< R f cr
Critical resistance is equal to the slop of air-gap line.
4) Speed of rotation should be more than critical value for a given field resistance R f .

## Developed Power is the power available at armature of motor.

In all power expressions, all voltages are line voltages and if we want to use phase voltage, we
must multiply all expressions by a factor of 3.

## Parallel operation of Alternators

Necessary Conditions
1) Terminal voltage of incoming alternator must be same as that of existing system.
2) Frequency should be same.
3) Phase sequence should be same.

23

## Synchronization by Lamp Method

1) Observe if 3 lamps are bright & dark simultaneously, that means phase sequence of
incoming alternator is same as that of existing system.
Otherwise, phase sequence is opposite and stator terminals must be interchanged to
reverse phase sequence of incoming generator.
2) The frequency of alternator is usually a bit higher than infinite bus.
3) To understand the concept better, refer Ques. 39 of GATE 2014 EE-01 paper.

## For constant torque, Ns N = constant

So, by varying frequency we vary Ns & since Ns N = constant we vary N accordingly.
Crawling
o

## Due to harmonies, the actual torque characteristics may look like

Due to this saddle region, the motor may become stable at a low speed & this is called as
crawling.

Cogging
o

If number of stator slots is equal to or integral multiple number of rotor slots, than at the
time of start, the strong alignment forces between stator teeth & rotor teeth simultaneously
at all rotor teeth may prevent movement of rotor. This is called cogging.

## Single Phase Induction Motor

o

According to Double field Revolving Theory, a single phase mmf can be resolved into two
rotating fields one rotating clockwise called as Forward field & other rotating anti-clock wise
called as Backward Field.
Both fields rotate at synchronous speed

Ns =
o

120f
P

## If rotor rotates at speed Nr , or a slips with respect to forward field.

Than slip with respect to backward field is 2 s

34

Due to these two fields producing opposing torques on rotor single phase IM is not
self starting.

To produce starting torque, we introduce an auxiliary winding which is used at the time
of start & is disconnected during the run stage.

## We generally design auxiliary winding such that phase difference is approximately 90

between main winding & auxiliary winding currents.
