1. An alternating current of frequency 60Hz has a maximum value of 12A

1.     Write down value of current for instantaneous values

2.     Find the value of current after 1∕360 second

3.     Time taken to reach 9.6A for the first time.

In the above cases assume that time is reckoned as zero when current wave is passing through zero and increase in positive direction.

Solution:

Given:

F = 60Hz

Im = 12A

W = 2πf = 2π x 60 = 377 rad∕sec

(i). Equation of instantaneous value is i = Im Sin wt

i = 12 Sin 377t

(ii). t = 1∕360sec

i = 12 Sin (377∕360) = 12 Sin 1.0472 = 10.3924 A

i = 10.3924 A

(iii). i = 9.6 A

9.6 = 12 Sin 377t Sin377t = 0.8 377t = 0.9272

independently

a.     Resistance of 10Ω

b.     Inductance of 0.2H

c.      Capacitance of 50uF

Find the expression for the instantaneous current in each case. Draw the phasor diagram in each case.

Solution:

Given ,

F = 50Hz

V = 150 V

Im = Vm∕R = 212.13∕10 = 21.213

ф  = 0

For pure resistive current circuit phase different  ф

i  = Im Sin wt = Im Sin 2πft

i  = 21.213 Sin (100 πt) A

Phasor diagram: Case (ii):

L = 0.2H

XL = wL =2πfL XL = 2π x 50 x0.2

XL = 62.83

Im = Vm∕XL = 212.13∕62.83 = 3.37A

Ф A = -900 = π∕2 rad

In pure Inductive circuit, I lags V by 90 degree i= Im Sin (wt - ) A

i = 3.37 Sin Ф (wt - Ф) A

i = 3.37 Sin  (100 πt - π∕2) A

Phasor diagram

Case(iii):

C= 50uf

Xc = 1∕wC = 1∕2πfC

Xc = 1∕(2π x 50x 50 x 10-6) = 63.66

Im = Vm∕Xc = 212.13∕63.66 = 3.33 A

In pure capacitive circuit, current leads voltage by 900

i = Im Sin (wt +ф    ) A

i = 3.33 Sin (wt +ф ) A

i = 3.33 Sin (100 πt + π∕2) A
