    Why are salient pole rotors preferred in hydro plants?

    Hi all, I tried to post in this post but I now realise that creating a new thread might have been better. So... Salient rotors are not used in high rotational speed applications, and we must use...

    Parallel Resonance in Power System

    Hi, imagine we have the following circuit shown in the figure below. There are installed a passive filter to filter the 5th harmonic. Now, after installation this creates a parallel path with a generator connected, lets say that this parallel circuit has a resonance frequency at the 7th...

    Frequency Control in Power Plants -- Droop

    Hi, how do power operators change the droop setting in modern power plants? Back in the days it was with help of a flyball governor(?). In todays power plants do operators adjust some sort of gain electronically via a scada system or something?

    Synchronous generator phasor diagram

    1. Problem Statement: A 4-pole, star-connected, 50 Hz, 11kV, 40 MVA turbogenerator, with a synchronous reactance of 0.8 p.i., is connected to a power network. This power network can be represented by 11-kV infinite bus with a series reactance of j 0.5 Ω. A voltage regulator adjusts the field...

    Power supplied by capacitor bank

    < Mentor Note -- thread moved to HH from the technical forums, so no HH Template is shown > Hi, I have the following circuit, where V2 is found to be 0.964∠-3.3 (degrees) p.u. Then I am to find the reactive power supplied by the capacitor bank (j0.25 p.u, to the right). I got the right...

    Power System, synchronous generator

    Sorry for bad title(little informative regarding my question), however I came across the following question given as an exam question at some university. Question: "A synchronous generator is running overexcited with excitation voltage Ef = 1.40 p.u and connected to the network at voltage of 1...

    Voltage and Frequency Regulation (Grid, synchronous generation)

    Hi I was wondering if someone could help me understand and explain to me how one can control the frequency of the grid from help of the active power (frequency -> power angle -> active power) and how reactive power can be used to control the voltage level. My thoughts: Voltage Control: I dont...

    Equivalent circuit of an Induction Motor

    Hi, I have attached two circuits of an induction motor, one for steady state(1st circuit) and a dynamic model(2nd circuit). My question is: Why don't we include the induced emf in the steady state circuit? Looking at the dynamic circuit we include it, but not in the steady state circuit. Is the...
