## PROBLEM SOLUTIONS: Chapter 5

Problem 5.1
Basic equations are T ∝ ΦR Ff sin δRF . Since the ﬁeld current is constant, Ff
is constant, Note also that the resultant ﬂux is proptoortional to the terminal
voltage and inversely to the frequency ΦR ∝ Vt /f . Thus we can write
Vt sin δRF
T ∝
f
P = ωf T ∝ Vt sin δRF
part (a): Reduced to 31.1◦
part (b): Unchanged
part (c): Unchanged
part (d): Increased to 39.6◦
Problem 5.2
part (a): The windings are orthogonal and hence the mutual inductance is
zero.
part (b): Since the two windings are orthogonal, the phases are uncoupled
and hence the ﬂux linkage under balanced two-phase operation is unchanged by
currents in the other phase. Thus, the equivalent inductance is simply equal to
the phase self-inductance.

part (b): If the machine speed remains constant and the ﬁeld current is not
reduced, the terminal voltage will increase to the value corresponding to 306 A
of ﬁeld current on the open-circuit saturation characteristic. Interpolating the

5000 kW/( 3 4160 V) = 694 A. The power dissipated in the armature winding
will then equal Parm = 3 × 6942 × 0.011 = 15.9 kW.
The ﬁeld current can be found from

## At 125◦ C, the ﬁeld-winding resistance will be

 
234.5 + 125
Rf = 0.279 = 0.324 Ω
234.5 + 75

and hence the ﬁeld-winding power dissipation will be Pfield = If2 Rf = 21.1 kW.
The total loss will then be

## Ptot = Pcore + Parm + Pfriction/windage + Pfield = 120 kW

Hence the output power will equal 4880 kW and the eﬃciency will equal 4880/5000
