in transmission line and also describe its control characteristics.
3.
Derive the expression for active as well as reactive power flow in a lossless transmission
line. Draw necessary phasor diagram.

Explain the working of thyristor control phase angle regulator (TCPAR) and also discuss
the power transmitted through quadrature booster with neat diagram.
5.
By using power angle curve explain how by changing the value of line impedance the
maximum amount of active power flow will change?
6.
Explain the working and characteristics of STATCOM with a neat sketch. In what way it
differs from SVC.
SECTION-C
7.
A 400kV, 50Hz, 600km long symmetrical line is operated at the rated voltage.

(a) What is the theoretical maximum power carried by the line? What is the midpoint
voltage corresponding to this condition?

(b) A series capacitor is connected at the midpoint of the line to double the power

transmitted. What is its reactance?

(c) A shunt capacitor of value 450ohms is connected at the midpoint of the line. If the
midpoint voltage is 0.97. compute the power flow in the line corresponding to this
operating point.

Data : 1 = 1mH/km, c = 11.1 ? 10?9 F/km.
