S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Reactive power plays important role in power System stability.
During light load condition shunt compensator is able to minimize the line overvoltage.
During heavy load demand, shunt compensator is able to maintain appropriate voltage regulation.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. When circuit is lagging in nature, its power factor can be improved by adding capacitor:
Cos ϕ=R/Z;Z =√(R^2+(X_L-X_C )^2 )
When capacitor is added, (X_L-X_C ) reduces. So, Z decreases and cos ϕ increases.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Impedance = (KV^2)/MVAR=360^2/50=2592 Ω
Record kV = 280 kV
Reactive power absorbed = V^2/Z=280^2/2592
= 30.24 MVAR

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. cosϕ = 0.8
ϕ=36.86°
Reactive power (Q) = V_rms I_rms sinθ
300=200/√2 .I_rms sin36.86°
I_rms=3.5355A
Active power (P) = V_rms I_rms cosϕ
P=200/√2×3.5355×0.8=400 W

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. V_i = 230 V
Frequency f = 50 Hz
Firing angle α = 180° – cos^(-1) (230/(230√2))
= 180°-45°
= 135°

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. power (P) = 10 kW
Voltage (V) = 400 V
Current (I) = 10000/400=25A
Therefore, starting current which reaches to 4 to 6 times
I.e., 100 to 150 A
Hence 120 A, 0.2 p.f. is most appropriate.
