Electrical interview question:How do you select a cable size (Cu & Al) for a particular load? Answer:At first calculate the electrical current of the load, after that derate the electrical current considering derating factor(depending on site condition and laying of cable) after choose the cable size from cable catalog considering derating electrical current.After that measure the length of cable required from supply point of load to load poin. Calculate the voltage drop which will max 3% (resistance and reactance of cable found from cable catalog of selecting cable) if voltage drop>3% then choose next higher size of cable.

Answer:The different methods of starting an induction motor DOL:direct online starter Star delta starter Auto transformer starter Resistance starter Series reactor starter Electrical interview question:What is the difference between earth resistance and earth electrode resistance? Answer:Only one of the terminals is evident in the earth resistance. In order to find the second terminal we should recourse to its definition: Earth Resistance is the resistance existing between the electrically accessible part of a buried electrode and another point of the earth, which is far away. The resistance of the electrode has the following components: (A) the resistance of the metal and that of the connection to it. (B) the contact resistance of the surrounding earth to the electrode. Electrical interview question:What is use of lockout relay in ht voltage? Answer:A lock-out relay is generally placed in line before or after the e-stop switch so the power can be shut off at one central location. This relay is powered by the same electrical source as the control power and is operated by a key lock switch. The relay itself may have up to 24 contact points within the unit itself. This allows the control power for multiple machines to be locked out by the turn of a single key switch.

A team experience is a positive factor for recruiters. they are: • • • • Feed water and steam flow circuit Coal and ash circuit Air and gas circuit Cooling water circuit Steam power plant works on which cycle? Answer: Steam power plant works on the principle of Rankine Cycle What is the Thermal efficiency of steam power plant? Answer: Thermal efficiency of steam power plant is defined as the ratio of heat equivalent of mechanical energy transmitted to the turbine shaft to the heat of combustion. Electrical job Questions:Thermal Power Plant (Set 1) What are the main circuits in the Thermal Power Plant? Answer:Thermal Power plant consists of four main circuits. Generally Thermal efficiency of the steam power plant will be in the range of 30-35% What is the overall efficiency of the Thermal Power Plant or Steam Power Plant? Answer: Overall efficiency of the system is defined as the ratio of heat equivalent of electrical output to the heat of combustion. Explain your team leading or team playing experience. People as a part of a team in a power plant get major opportunities to learn in detail the operation and maintenance procedures. Generally Overall efficiency of the steam plant will always be less than the thermal efficiency of the steam plant. it will be of the order of 29-33% Overall efficiency of steam plant is determined by multiplying the thermal efficiency of the plant with efficiency of the generator (electrical efficiency) Why the Thermal efficiency of the steam power plant is quite low? Answer: In Steam power station. Team leading or team playing experience is a major requirement in power generation plants. more than 50% of the total heat of combustion is lost as heat rejected to the condenser and the loss is unavoidable as the heat energy . Solar cells are made using silicon crystals or silicon thin film wafers.• is the photovoltaic effect.
• Low voltage generation for particular power level (say 500MW) requires large size of the stator conductors as huge currents flow through the stator because of low voltage. pressure of steam entering the turbine 2.cannot be converted in to mechanical energy with out a drop in temperature. On the other hand. Thermal efficiency also increases by reheating the steam between turbine stages Why Generation Voltage in Power Plant is Low (11kV to 33kV) ? Answer: In Electrical Generation plants. the generation voltage will be in the range between 11kV and 33kV. This is the reason that the thermal efficiency of the power plant is quite low. so pressure in the condenser is kept as low as possible.5 kV with line currents of about 19 000 A at 0.85 power factor. On what factors efficiency (thermal) of the steam plant depends? Answer: Efficiency of the thermal plant depends on three factors. Thermal efficiency is effectively increased by decreasing the pressure in the condenser. increase of the machine voltage significantly beyond the minimum necessary value results in more insulation required on the generator stator windings. But certain technical and economical problems will arise which results in designing the generator for particular voltage and current ratings. Steam in the condenser is at lowest temperature. Example: 660 MW generation plant usually operate at 23. • Therefore an optimum value of Voltage and Current values are attained for designing the generator considering the cost and size factors of the generator. they are 1. For this reason high temperature and pressure are used. pressure in the condenser Thermal efficiency increases with increase in temperature and pressure of the steam entering the turbine. temperature of the steam entering the turbine 3. thus increasing its size and cost. Thereby increase in the cost and size of the machine takes place. Generator designers wishes to generate the electricity at high voltages as possible to limit the stator current required to achieve the desired output. . ( Any current carrying conductor size is decided by the amount of current flowing through the conductors).
