Solution

## The correct option is C -j8 puFor the given system when fault occurs at point P, fault current If=1/Zth Per unit Thevenin impedance, Zth=j0.55=j0.1 ∴ Fault current, If=1j0.1=−j10 pu Drawing impedance diagram By current division rule Fault current, If=−j10×j0.5j0.5+j0.54 =−j10×0.5jj0.625=−j8 pu
