Solution

## The correct option is B 11.15 kVIa (rated) =1000√3×6.6=87.5A Vt=6600√3=3810.6V Operation at 0.8 lagging pf rated terminal voltage −→Ef=Vt+jIaXs =3810.6+j87.5(0.8−j0.6)25 =5123+j1750=5413.7∠18.86∘ ∴|Ef|=5413.7V Operation at 0.8 leading pf with excitation remaining unchanged Also jIaXs=j87.5(j0.8+j0.6)×25 =2187.5∠126.87∘ =2187.5∠53.13∘ From the phasor diagram: 5413.7sin53.13=2187.5sinδ δ=18.8∘ Also, Vtsin108.1∘=2187.50.323 ⇒Vt=6437.3V (or) 11.15kV(line)
