Reason [r].
Assertion: Under V/f control of induction motor, the maximum value of the

excitation is not switched on, the driving motor takes 800W. When the armature

14. For the configuration shown in Fig.14, the breaker connecting a large system to
bus 2 is initially open. The system 3phase fault level at bus 3 under this
condition is not known. After closing the system breaker, the 3phase fault level
at bus 1 was found to be 5.0 p.u. What will be the new 3phase fault level at
system bus 3 after the interconnection? All per unit values are on common bases.
Perfault load currents are neglected and prefault voltages are assumed to be 1.0
p.u. at all buses.
15. A synchronous generator, having a reactance of 0.15 p.u., is connected to an
infinite bus through two identical parallel transmission lines having reactance of
0.3 p.u. each. In steady state, the generator is delivering 1 p.u. Power to the
infinite bus. For a threephase fault at the receiving end of one line, calculate the
rotor angle at the end of first time step of 0.05 seconds. Assume the voltage
behind transient reactance for the generator as 1.1 p.u. and infinite bus voltage
as 1.0 p.u. Also indicate how the accelerating powers will be evaluated for the
next time step if the breaker clears the fault
