11. (a) (i) Give in brief the characteristics of different types of loads. (ii) Explain in detail constant HP and Constant torque operations (iii) Explain the regenerative braking in separately excited DC motor Or (b) (i) Derive the equations governing motor load dynamics from the basic principles (ii Derive the equations for equivalent electrical drive parameters.

12. (a) A 220 volts, 1500 rpm, 10 Amps separately excited dc motor has an armature resistance of 0.5 Ω is fed from a three phase fully controlled rectifier. Available AC source has a line voltage of 400 volts, 50 Hz. A star-delta connected transformer is used to feed the armature so that motor terminal voltage equals rated voltage when converter firing angle is zero. Calculate transformer turns ratio. Determine the value of firing angle when i. Motor is running at 1200 rpm and rated torque ii. When motor is running at (-800 rpm) and twice the rated torque. Assume continuous conduction. (12) Or b) A 220 volts, 1500 rpm, 10 Amps separately excited dc motor has an armature resistance of 10 Ω. It is fed from a single phase fully controlled bridge rectifier with an ac source voltage of 230 volts, at 50 Hz. Assuming continuous load current, compute i. The motor speed at firing angle of 30 degrees and torque of 5 NM ii. Developed torque at the firing angle of 45 degrees and speed of 1000 RPM (12) 13.a) Explain the operation of a single phase fully controlled converter fed separately excited DC motor with neat waveforms and derive the speed torque characteristics. (12) Or b) A 200 V, 875 rpm, 150 A separately excited dc motor has an armature resistance 0.06 Ω and inductance 0.85mH. It is fed from a single phase fully controlled rectifier with an ac source of 220 V, 50Hz.Calculate the motor torque for i. α=60° and speed =400 rpm. Now external inductance of 2 mH is added to the armature circuit to reduce the region of discontinuous conduction. Calculate the torque for ii. α=120° and speed= -400 rpm (12)
