ECE 430 homework assignment #1 (In class quiz – Friday, Sep 4) Text problem 2.1 (Partial answer: 0.707 leading) Text problem 2.2 (Partial answers: -250, -500, 500, 0, 150, 1900, -150) Text problem 2.8 Text problem 2.9 Text problem 2.10 (Partial answer: 100 Amps) Text problem 2.11 Special problem #1 A single-phase source is supplying passive loads through two wires (typically called a feeder). The impedance of each wire is 0.05 + j 0.05 Ohm. The load is connected between the two wires at the far end. The load current (which is also the feeder current) is 75 Amps (RMS). a) What is the source voltage that you need in order to have 120 Volts (RMS) across the load when the power factor of the load is unity? (Answer: 128V)

Unformatted text preview: b) Repeat for the case where the load power factor is 0.707 lagging (Answer: 131V). c) Repeat for the case where the load power factor is 0 leading (Answer: 113V). Special problem #2 Three single-phase loads are connected in parallel across a 60Hz source of 240 Volts. Load #1: 6 KVA at 0.8 power factor lag Load #2: 4 KW at 0.9 power factor lag Load #3: 13 Amps at unity power factor a) Find the total complex power consumed by these three loads. b) Find the source current magnitude (Answer: 54.76 Amps) c) Find the value of capacitive VARS that should be added in parallel to these three loads to make the overall power factor 0.95 lag. (Answer: 1,619 Vars)...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
