A field current of 25 A is found necessary to circulate a full load current on short circuit of the alternator. Calculate the voltage regulation at 0.8 p.f. lagging and 0.8 p.f. leading, using synchronous impedance method. Show Solution: also the vector diagram. IL = 30 kVA /(√3) (650) = 26.6469355 A ZS = [ 650 / (√3) ] / 26.6469355 = 14.08333333 A

Ra=0; XS = ZS IXS = 375.2776749 V Eph = Vph + IL ( Ra + j XL ) ; Vph + IXS < 53.13010235 Eph = 622.7425899 < 28.8224976 V VR% = 622.7425899 – (555/ √3) (555/ √3) = 94.34627131 %

Solution: IL = 30 kVA /(√3) (550) = 31.49183286 A Vph = 550 / √3 = 317.5426481 V IRa= 4.72377493 V/phase Eph = Vph + IL ( Ra + j XL ) ; Vph + IRa < 36.86989765 Eph = 321.3341678 < 0.50537273 V ELL = 556.5671049 V If = 20
