Synchroscope Synchronizing

The Synchroscope is a device used for determining the phase angle differences between two or more machines at the time of the synchronization. The synchronization is essential for sharing the load on the bus bar of the power system. The following are the essentials conditions for synchronization: The magnitude of the incoming voltage becomes equal. …

Flux Linkage Equation

The constant Flux Linkage concept is of considerable importance in studying alternator transients. This concept is stated as – The Flux Linkage after a sudden disturbance in a closed circuit having zero resistance and zero capacitance remain constant at their predisturbed values. There is no capacitance in the armature and the field windings of an …

Synchronous Condensor

Synchronous Condensor is also known as Synchronous Compensator or Synchronous Phase Modifier. A synchronous condenser or a synchronous compensator is a synchronous motor running without a mechanical load. It can generate or absorb reactive volt-ampere (VAr) by varying the excitation of its field winding. It can be made to take a leading current with over-excitation …

MMF Method of Voltage Regulation

MMF Method is also known as Ampere Turn Method. The synchronous impedance method is based on the concept of replacing the effect of armature reaction with an imaginary reactance, the Magnetomotive force (MMF). The MMF method replaces the effect of armature leakage reactance with an equivalent additional armature reaction MMF so that this MMF may …
