Reduction from top network to bottom network in the screen shot. I can not find the steps that have been taken to do this.
Fault impedance = Zfa = Zfb = Zfc = j0.5
The Attempt at a Solution
in hand written screenshot, sorry for the mess, just to show...
I am reading some text about capacitive reactance that reads 'so we know that capacitors oppose changes in voltage'
would this be the supply voltage or the voltage in the capacitor? I am struggling to see how the change is opposed
surely the quoted statement would infer increasing...
The Attempt at a Solution
Knowledge gap 1 - I do not understand why if top and bottom are divided through by 4 there should be a 4 left in the denominator and why the rest of the numerators and...
Just looking for an explanation on capacitor principles.
A capacitor is made from two conductors ( which have the ability to hold charge) separated by an insulator. Therefore current cannot flow between the+ and - plates. Unless unwanted breakdown from excessive...
I will have to double check the book but it's back in the library just now but from memory the resultant voltage at the load is the difference between the line voltage and the phase voltage that would appear at the top of the load. I have annotated a chopped page from that book, please see...
What I don't understand is why the rectified waveform does not have the positive voltage peaks (a b c) occurring at the same phase angle as the original 3 phase positive voltages
This is also happening with the flipped negative voltages. Pointed out with the dotted lines in the image above.
Having difficulty understanding the above resultant wave form, been looking at power electronics (C.W.Lander) but don't quite get the addition of the wave forms (positive and negative cycles)can anyone point me to some reading of theory I am missing for this, thanks.
Didn't know what other thread to ask this on.
I have an electrical power eng book which keeps referring to negative current with respect to thyristors. Am I missing something here, is there such a thing. Current always flows from high to low potential. So if your terminal voltage is...
Thanks for the reply NascentOxygen,
So If the windings are touching in an Inductor, transformer, motor/generator etc they will always have a form of insulation?
What has thrown me is that in some pictures of the components stated it looks like there is no insulation, but from your reply I...
Silly question here I'm sure. But.
Why does current not travel the shortest distance across an inductive coil (if the coils are physically touching and not insulated) instead of all the way through the coil.
First post of many on the forum.
On the Subject of earthing I had always been led to believe that electricity would always go to ground (if of course ground was the lower potential)
I was talking to someone the other day who was discussing un-earthed transmission systems and live...
