(c) A three phase, 20 MVA, 10kV alternator has inter
nal reactance of 5% with negligible resistance. Find
the external reactance to be connected in series with
the alternator so that the steady state current on
short circuit does not exceed 8 times the full load
current value.

currents (RYB) as Ir= 230°, ly = 502300°
and b= 30Z180°, find the positive, negative and
zero sequence current components along with the
current in the neutral wire.

Determine the saving in fuel cost in Rs/hr for the
economic distribution of load of 900 MW between
two units of plant when unit 1 delivers 400 MW and
unit 2 delivers 500 MW. Compare this with the equal
distribution of the same total load)
(6) For a plant with three generating units with outputs
Pg1, Pg2 and Pg3 and penalty factors L1, L2 and
L3 indicate how the load should be economically
