2-14. The current in a 60 Hz single-phase motor lags 36 degrees behind the voltage. Calculate the time interval between the positive peaks of voltage and current.

T = 1/ƒ = 1/60 = 1.67 ms

3-17. A motor drives a flywheel having a moment of inertia of 5 kg·m2. The speed increases from 1600 r/min to 1800 r/min in 8 s. Calculate

a. the torque developed by the motor [N·m]

b. the energy in the flywheel at 1800 r/min [kJ]

c. the motor power [W] at 1600 r/min

d. the power input [W] to the flywheel at 1750 r/min

4-24. A 240 kW, 500 V 1750 r/min separately excited dc generator has an overall efficiency of 94%. The shunt field resistance is 60 ohms and the rated current is 5 A. The I2R loss in the armature is 0.023 pu. Calculate

a. the rated armature current

b. the total losses in the machine

c. the I2R losses in the armature

5-13. The following details are known about a 250 hp, 230 V, 435 r/min dc shunt motor: nominal full-load current: 862 A insulation class: H weight: 3400 kg external diameter of the frame: 915 mm length of frame: 1260 mm

a. Calculate the total losses and efficiency at full-load.

Po= 250 *746 =186.5 kW; Pi = VI = 230 *862 =198.26 kW

Ploss = Pi – Po = 198.26 kW - 186.5 kW = 11.76 kW

? =Po / Pi = 186.5 kW / 198.26 kW = 94%

b. Calculate the approximate shunt field exciting current if the shunt field causes 20 percent of the total losses.

P = (11.76 kW / 100) 20 = 2.35 kW

I = P/V = 2.35 kW / 230 V = 10.23 A

c. Calculate the value of the armature resistance as well as the counter-emf, knowing that 50 percent of the total losses at full-load are due to armature resistance.
