PART B (5 x 16 80 marks)
11. (a) Describe the basic structure of an ac power system with a single line diagram. (16)
11.(b) An overhead line has a span of 160m of stranded copper conductor between level supports. The sag is 3.96 m at —5.50 C with 9.53 mm thick in ice coating and wind pressure of 40 Kgffm2 of projected area. Calculate the temperature at whichthe sag will remain the same under conditions of no ice and no wind. The particulars of the conductor are as follows:
Size of conductor 7/3.45 mm, Area of cross section 64.5 mm2 weight of conductor 0.594 Kgf/m, Modulus of elasticity 12700 Kgf/mm2, Coeficient Qf linear expansion 1.7 x 10-510 C, Assume 1 ms of ice to weight 913.5 Kgf.
12. (a) Derive the capacitance of a three-phase overhead line. (16)
12. (b)Estimate the corona loss for a three-phase, 110 Kv, 50 Hz, 150 Km-long transmission line consisting of three conductdrseach of Id mm diameter and spaced 2.5m apart in a equilateral triangle" formation. The temperature of air is 300 C and the atmospheric pressure is 750 mm of mercury. Assume the irregularity factor as 0.85. Ionization of air may be assumed to take place at a maximum voltage gradient of 30Kv/cm. (16)
13.(a) Explain the method of drawing receiving end power circle diagrams. (16)
13 (b) A 50 Hz, three-phase transmission line is 250 Km long. It has a total series impedance of ohms and a shunt admittance of
914 x 10-6 ohms. It delivers 5(fMw at 220 Kv with a power factor of 0.9 lag. Find the :
(i) Sending end voltage
(ii) Voltage regulation
(iii) Transmission effciency by nominal —T method. (16)
14. (a) Draw with neat sketches and explanation of pin and suspension type insulators. Compare their merits and dements.
14. (b) Discuss the capacitance grading of underground cables.
15(a) Explain in detail the various types of bus bar arrangements.
15.(b) (i) Explain the various types of d.c. distributors.
(ii) An electric train taking a constant current of 600 A moves on a
section of line between two substations 8 km and maintained at 575
and 590 volts respectively. The track resistance is 0.04 ohm per km
both go and return. Find the point of minimum potential along the
track and currents supplied by two substations at that instant. (8)
