SOLVED PROBLEMS

Problem 1

A synchronous generator and a synchronous motor each rated 20MVA, 12.66KV having 15% reactance are connected through transformers and a line as shown in fig. the transformers are rated 20MVA,12.66/66KV and 66/12.66KV with leakage reactance of 10% each. The line has a reactance of 8% on base of 20MVA, 66 KV. The motor is drawing 10MW at 0.8 leading power factors and a terminal voltage 11KV when symmetrical three phase fault occurs at the motors terminals. Determine the generator and motor currents. Also determine the fault current.              Two generators G1 and G2 are rated 15MVA, 11KV and 10MVA, 11KV respectively. The generators are connected to a transformer as shown in fig. Calculate the sub transient current in each generator when a three phase fault occurs on the high voltage side of the transformer. A radial power system network is shown in fig. a three phase balanced fault occurs at F. Determine the fault current and the line voltage at 11.8 KV bus under fault condition.    Problem : 2
