1. Explain the building of the emf in a shunt generator.
2. From the fundamental, derive the expression for the Torque.
3. Explain the phasor diagram of a transformer ‘on load’ with lagging pf .
4. From the following test results determine the regulation of a 2 KV single phase
alternator delivering a current of 100 A at 0.8 Pf lagging. Test results: full load
current of 100 A is produced on short circuit by a field excitation of 2.5 A. An
emf of 500V is produced on open circuit by the same excitation. The armature
resistance is 0.8 ohms.
