3. At a 33kV 50 Hz to a bus a load of 35 MW is connected. To improve the power factor to unity a synchronous phase modifier is connected taking 5 MW. If the SPM is represented as delta connected impedance, where in each phase we have capacitor connected parallel to resistance forming RC parallel network, then the value of this resistance is ___________

a) 653.4 Ω

b) 753.6 Ω

c) 280.4 Ω

d) 682 Ω

View Answer

Explanation: Reactive power fed by SPM = 35tan36.87 = 26.25 MVAR

Active power consumed by prime mover = 5 MW

5*10

^{6}= 3V

^{2}/R

R=3(33×1000)

^{2}/(5*10

^{6}) = 653.4 Ω.
