3.      Explain SCR in synchronous machines.

4.      Find the main dimensions of a 20 MVA, 11kV, 50Hz, 150r.p.m., 3-phase water wheel generator. The average gap density is 0.6 Wb /m² and ampere conductors per meter are 35,000. The peripheral speed should not exceed 65 m/s at normal running speed in order to limit the run-away speed.

5.      Give procedure for designing the field system of a three-phase turbo generator from the given design data. Also indicate how much excitation power may be required for such a generator of about 100 MW capacity.

6.      A 1500 kVA, 3-phase, star-connected, 3300 V, 250 rpm water wheel generator has the following design data:
Effective gap length                           = 7mm
Effective gap area/pole                       = 0.075 m²
Winding factor                                    = 0.955
Field mmf per pole under  rated condition                 = 7850 A
No. of field turns/pole                                    = 180
The peak value of fundamental flux density distribution B…= 0.94 T and peak value of the actual flux density distribution B…=0.9T.
The permissible value of current density in field winding is 3 A/mm². Determine:
(i)     Turns  / phase
(ii)   MMF for air gap
(iii) Armature MMF /pole
(iv) Field current
(v)   Sectional area of field conductor.  

7.      Design the suitable values of diameter and length of a 75 MVA, 11 KV, 50 Hz, 3000 rpm, 3-phase star connected alternator. Also determine the value of flux, conductor per slot, no of turns per phase, and size of armature conductor. Given

Amp conductor per m             = 50,000
Peripheral speed                      = 180 m/s

8.      Calculate the diameter, core length, number of conductors of the stator, size of conductor, number of stator slots of a 30 MVA, 11KV, 3000 r.p.m. 50Hz star connected turbo alternator. Assume suitable data:
Bav =0.55 Wb/m²,         ac =55000 A/m,          Kw = 0.955,
Peripheral velocity = 160 m/s.

9.      If two synchronous machines running at the same speed and having the same number of poles, the physical dimensions are in the ratio 3 : 2. Compare the outputs, armature copper losses and iron losses in the two machines. Assume specific magnetic loading and current density to be same for both the machines.
