SECTION-B

Q2. What are the different methods used for the measurement of temperature rise in machines?

Q3. A 500 MW direct water cooled turbo alternator has a stator copper loss of 800 KW. The

water inlet temp. is 38?C and the outlet temp. is 68?C. Calculate amount of water required

sec. Also calculate the area of water duct in each sub conductor if there are 48 slots with 2

conductors slot and each conductor is subdivided into 32 sub conductors. The velocity is

not to exceed 1m/sec. If the pumping pressure is 300 KN /m2, calculate the power of water

pump if its efficiency is 0.6.

Q4. Explain the different types of cores used in transformers.

Q5. The losses in a 11KW three phase 4000V, 50 Hz, 1000 rpm induction motor are : Copper

losses = 950W, Iron losses = 500W and Friction & windage losses = 110W Find the output

losses & efficiency of a similar motor designed with each linear dimension of the given

motor.

Q6. Explain the method used for reduction of harmonic torques in induction motors.

SECTION-C

Q7. A 400 KVA transformer has its max. efficiency at 80% of full load during a short full load

heat run the temp. rise after 1 hour and 2 hours is observed to be 24?C and 34?C

respectively. Find the thermal time constant and final study temp. rise of the transformer. If

by use of a fan the rate of heat dissipation is increased by 50%, find the new KVA rating

possible (a) for the same final temp. rise as before and (b) if the allowable temp. rise taken

as 50?C.

Q8. What is specific permeance? Find an expression for effective specific permeance of

induction motor.

Q9. What are the mechanical forces produced in transformer? Find an expression for axial force

and radial force.
