Questions & Answers of System Stability Concepts

Question No. 34

A cylindrical rotor generator delivers 0.5 pu power in the steady-state to an infinite bus through a transmission line of reactance 0.5 pu. The generator no-load voltage is 1.5 pu and the infinite bus voltage is 1 pu. The inertia constant of the generator is 5 MW-s/MVA and the generator reactance is 1 pu. The critical clearing angle, in degrees, for a three-phase dead short circuit fault at the generator terminal is

Question No. 53

A lossless single machine infinite bus power system is shown below :

The synchronous generator transfers 1.0 per unit of power to the infinite bus. The critical clearing time of circuit breaker is 0.28 s. If another identical synchronous generator is connected in parallel to the existing generator and each generator is scheduled to supply 0.5 per unit of power, then the critical clearing time of the circuit breaker will

Question No. 30

Consider a synchronous generator connected to an infinite bus by two identical parallel transmission line. The transient reactance ‘x’ of the  generator is 0.1 pu and the mechanical power input to it is constant at 1.0 pu. Due to some previous disturbance, the rotor angle (δ) is undergoing an undamped oscillation, with the maximum value of δt equal to 130% .One of the parallel lines trip due to the relay maloperation at an instant when δt = 130° as shown in the figure. The maximum value of the per unit line reactance, x such that the system does not lose synchronism subsequent to this tripping is

Question No. 68

An isolated 50 Hz synchronous generator is rated at 15 MW which is also the maximum continuous power limit of its prime mover. It is equipped with a speed governor with 5% droop. Initially, the generator is feeding three loads of 4 MW each at 50 Hz. One of these loads is programmed to trip permanently if the frequency falls below 48 Hz .If an additional load of 3.5 MW is connected then the frequency will settle down to
