SOLUTIONS
S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. A Hysteresis Motor is a synchronous motor with a uniform air gap and without DC excitation.
The rotor of the motor is made up of smooth chrome steel cylinder and it has no winding.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. when supply is given to stator starts rotating and stator poles too rotate at synchronous speed. these poles interchange their position due to alternating nature of current. the rotor cannot pick up the quick reversal of stator. Due to this clockwise and counter clockwise directions of torque will develop making average torque zero.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Hunting is a phenomenon occurs in a synchronous machine, involving the oscillations of the rotor about its final equilibrium position.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. In case of synchronous motor:
• Under excitation: lagging pf
• Over excitation: leading pf

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. In case of synchronous motor:
• Under excitation: lagging pf
• Over excitation: leading pf

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Damper winding eliminates hunting which is caused by pulsating frequency or by changing load in synchronous motor.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. in synchronous motor damper winding is placed at rotor pole faces and it is used to eliminate hunting and also provides starting torque.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. over-excited synchronous motor running at no-load, called “Synchronous condenser”.
It is used for power factor correction.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. 3-phase synchronous machine rotor construction:
• Salient pole rotor: larger diameter, shorter axial length
• Cylindrical pole rotor: smaller diameter, larger axial length
