Sol. P=VI cos〖ϕ=VI cos〖90^0=0〗 〗(for pure inductor, ϕ=90
NOTE: pure inductor and capacitor consumes only reactive power.
Sol. Aluminium has 61 percent of the conductivity of copper.
The conductivity of copper is about 0.6 mega-mho/cm while that of aluminium is about 0.4 mega-mho/cm.
Sol. The electric flux and field intensity inside a conducting sphere are zero.
Sol. In a synchronous motor the rotor copper losses, are met by dc source.
Sol. The change of dc excitation of synchronous motor change power factor.
As E changes, Reactive power will change, hence power factor will change.
Sol. In transmission lines the cross-arms are made of steel.
Poles: wood, RCC, Steel
Sol. Diversity factor in a power system is always greater than unity.
Diversity factor=(sum of individual max.demand)/(max.demand)
Sol. Swamping resistance is used to compensate error due to temperature variations and connected in series with meter.
Sol. The type of wiring that is highly suitable for a temporary shed is cleat wiring.
