Scenario:

As a trainee you are asked by your company to solve the following tasks related to the construction and design of electrical machines. Throughout the term you have studied all theory about construction and design of different electrical machines. You have to carry out these task with the deadline mentioned in this assignment. Your promotion in the company will depend on how well you solved the tasks and the way you presented and reported the results. Your report must include excellent solutions and professional presentations. All the tasks must be handed in one report within the specified deadlines.

LO1 ASSESS THE CONSTRUCTIONAL FEATURES AND APPLICATIONS OF TRANSFORMERS.

Task 1

  2. b.   What are the main applications of transformers.
  3. c.    Discuss the main connections of three-phase transformers.
    1. d.   A transformer has 500 turns in the primary windings and 100 turns in the secondary side. The resistances in the primary and secondary sides are 0.3 Ω and 0.1 Ω.respectively and the reactances are 2.0 Ω and 0.1 Ω respectively.

Find:

  1. The equivalent resistance referred to the primary
  2. The equivalent reactances referred to the primary
  3. The equivalent impedance referred to the primary
  4. The phase angle of the impedance
  5. e.       A 200 kVA rated transformer has a full-load copper loss of 1.5 kW and an iron loss of 1 kW.
    1. Determine the transformer efficiency
      1. At full load and 0.85 power factor.
      2. At half full load and 0.85 power factor
      3. Determine the maximum efficiency at power factor 0.89

LO2 ANALYSE THE STARTING METHODS AND APPLICATIONS OF THREE-PHASE INDUCTION MOTORS AND SYNCHRONOUS MACHINES.

Task 2

  1. Analyse the operation of induction and synchronous motors and the main applications of these motors.
  2. A 400V, 4 Pole, 3 Phase, 50 Hz star connected induction motor has a rotor resistance and reactance/phase = 0.01Ω and 0.1Ω respectively and stator resistance and reactance/phase of 0.641W and 1.106 respectively and Xm=26.3. The equivalent circuit is referred to the stator. Determine i) Starting Torque ii) Slip at which maximum torque will occur. iii) Speed at which maximum torque occurs iv) The value of maximum torque

v) Full load torque if full load slip is 4%. Assume ratio of stator to rotor turns as 4.

  1. Analyse the different methods of starting induction motors and synchronous machines
  2. Justify the selection of a motor for a specific industrial application.
  3. Critically evaluate the efficiency of a number of available motors and make a recommendation for a specified operational requirement.

LO3 INVESTIGATE THE TYPES OF GENERATOR AVAILABLE IN INDUSTRY BY ASSESSING THEIR PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS.

Task3

  1. Explain the types and constructions of generators (direct current, alternating current and excitation)
  2. Identify a generator for a specific application, considering their characteristics.
  3. A 3Φ, 16 pole, star connected salient pole alternator has 144 slots with 10 conductors per slot. The alternator is run at 375 rpm. The terminal voltage of the generator found to be 2.657 kV. Determine the frequency of the induced emf and the flux per pole

  5. Assess the efficiency of a number of available generators and make a recommendation for a specified operational requirement.

LO4 ANALYSE THE OPERATING CHARACTERISTICS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC TRANSDUCERS AND ACTUATORS.

Task 4

  1. Describe in general terms the parts and operation of a magnetic actuator and transducer
  2. Explain fully the different types of transducers ( passive, active and sensors)
  3. Explain fully the different types of actuators (solenoid, linear and rotary)
  4. The magnetic circuit shown in the figure below has dimensions Ac = Ag= 10 cm2, g =

0.05 cm, lc = 50 cm, and N = 600 turns. Assume the value of the relative permeability, μr = 70,000 for core material. (a) Find the reluctances Rc and Rg. For the condition that the magnetic circuit is operating with Bc = 1.0 T, find (b) the flux and (c) the current i.

  1. Justify the selection of suitable transducers for specific industrial applications
  2. Analyse the practical application of transducers and actuators in an industrial situation and make recommendations to improve the operating efficiency of the units in use.
