Ans: (d)

72. When an alternator is short circuited on the three phases, it settles down to the steady short circuit value and limited by

a) Sub-transient reactance
b) Transient reactance
c) Synchronous reactance
d) Either (a) or (c)

Ans: (c)

73. The short circuit current of an alternator when short circuited on three phases will be

a) Zero as time goes to infinity
b) Maximum when time goes to infinity
c) Infinity when time goes to infinity
d) Small as time goes to infinity but not zero
e) None of the above

Ans: (a)

74. The reactors used to limit the short circuit current in the alternators have very small resistance in comparison to reactance

a) Because the high resistance will not help to limit the short circuit current
b) To avoid the energy waste
c) Because the high resistance will raise the temperature and insulation of reactor will be spoiled
d) To improve power factor

Ans: (b)
