True/false: A three-phase synchronous generator will not supply fault current when the interface transformer is grounded-wye grounded-wye.
For distribution efficiency, adding distributed generation will do which of the following (pick the best answer):
For a rotating machine, which impedance is most different from the others?
For a rotating machine, which impedance is the smallest?
For a rotating machine, which impedance is the largest?
True/false: Even if a generator on a distribution system follows IEEE 1547-2003, it can affect distribution voltages.
True/false: If an interface transformer is grounded-wye grounded-wye, effective grounding is assured.
According to IEEE 1584-2003 criteria, should a generator trip for a voltage sag to 60% of nominal on just one phase (line-to-neutral measurements) for 0.4 sec?
For a 1-MW generator eight miles out on a 12.5-kV distribution system, what option is the most appropriate for reducing voltage problems on the distribution circuit?
Which options or changes are sometimes needed for large generators on distribution circuits? Mark all that apply.
For a 1 MVA generator (Z0 = 5%, Z1 = Zd” = 20%) and a 1.5 MVA transformer (Yg - Yg, Z = 6%, X/R = 10) on a 12.5-kV system, find the largest size neutral reactor (in ohms) on the generator that will still maintain effective grounding.
Find the fault current at the substation and at the generator for a line-to-ground fault on a distribution system with and without a distributed generator using the following assumptions:
Next, try each of these variations separately:
For the generator and transformer characteristics in the previous problem, consider the case where one phase opens with a fault downstream of the open point. Find the line-to-ground voltage on the faulted phase along with the fault current. Find these for the following conditions: (1) R_{F} = 0.5 ohms and (2) R_{F} = 5000 ohms.
For the circuit and generator characteristics in the problem above (#2), determine the ratio of X_{C} / X_{L} for two 1200-kvar capacitors one mile from the generator. Will there be self excitation in this case?
