A 33 kV single phase generator is supplying a customer a load through a cable with an impedance j2 ohms

a.What voltage would the customer experience if rated current of 500 A is drawn at power factor of unity at the customer end?

b. How much active and reactive power would be provided by the generator?

2. Relevant equations

V = IZ

P = IV

PF = P/S = IV cos phi

3. The attempt at a solution

Part a: Do I need to find the total impedance using V = IZ equation, and then calculate the impedance of the customer load by subtraction, and then sub this impedance of the load back into the V = IZ formula to find the customer voltage?

Or is the customer voltage simply 33 kV?

I am very confused by terminology?

Any help much appreciated
