GATE EE 2023 Machines Question

You can watch a quick YouTube video or read along.

Q. When the winding c-d of the single-phase, 50 Hz, two winding transformer is supplied from an AC current source of frequency 50 Hz, the rated voltage of 200 V (rms), 50 Hz is obtained at the open-circuited terminals a-b. The cross sectional area of the core is 5000 mm2 and the average core length traversed by the mutual flux is 500 mm. The maximum allowable flux density in the core is Bmax = 1 Wb/m2 and the relative permeability of the core material is 5000. The leakage impedance of the winding a-b and winding c-d at 50 Hz are (5 + j100π x 0.16) Ω and (11.25 + j100 π x 0.36) Ω, respectively.

Considering the magnetizing characteristics to be linear and neglecting core loss, the self-inductance of the winding a-b in millihenry is

Solution :- Given that, A= 5000 mm2, = 5 x 10-3 m2 , E= 200 V, f=50 Hz, Bm= 1 Wb/m2 , μr = 5000, length (l) =500 mm

To Find :-

Step-1 :- Calculating Reluctance

S=\frac{I}{\mu {o}\mu {r}A}

Now putting the given values, in the formula of reluctance.

S=\frac{0.5}{4\pi \times 10^{-7}\times 5000\times 5\times 10^{-3}}=15915.49 AT/Wb

S= 15915.49 AT/Wb

Step-2 :- Calculating the no. of turns

E= 4.44fNBm A


Putting all the given values we get,

N=\frac{200}{4.44\times 50\times 1\times 5\times 10^{-3}}=180.18 = 180 turns

Step-III :- Calculate value of self-inductance

L=\frac{N^{2}}{S}=\frac{180 \times 180}{15915.49}=2.0357 \; H

Step-IV :- Calculating the value of self-inductance of the winding a-b

= L + 0.16 H

= (2.0357 + 0.16) mH

= 2.1957 H

= 2195.7 mH

The self-inductance of the winding a-b is 2195.7 mH.

These are some steps you can take to solve this type of problem.

Hope, so. You have well understood the solution of the problem.
