Sol. Kaplan turbine is a low head axial turbine with adjustable vane.
Kaplan & Francis: Reaction turbine
Pelton: Impulse turbine
Sol. Surge tanks are applied in hydropower plants with long water conduits to reduce pressure forces during the acceleration of the large water masses.
Sol. Over excited synchronous machine behaves as capacitor and provide reactive power.
Sol. The frequency of emf induced in the rotor: f_r=sf=0.05×50=2.5 Hz
So, when the rotor starts gaining speed, due to increase of rotor speed, slip of an induction
Sol. Current chopping usually occurs in Air blast circuit breaker.
Current Chopping in circuit breaker is defined as a phenomenon in which current is forcibly interrupted before the natural current zero.
