3 REGULATION OF A THREE PHASE ALTRENATOR BY EMF AND MMF METHODS AIM: To conduct OC and SC tests on a given 3-Φ alternator and hence to predetermine the regulation by (i) EMF method (ii) MMF method. APPARATUS REQUIRED: S. No. Apparatus Range &Type Quantity 1 Alternator Set up - I No. 2 Rheostat 200 Ω/3 A 2 Nos. 3 Voltmeter AC (0-600 V), MI I No. 4 Ammeter AC (0-10 A), MI I No. 5 Ammeter DC (0-2 A), MC I No. 6 Tachometer - 1No. 7 DPST Switch and TPST Switch - 1 each 8 Connecting wires & Fuse - As Required THEORY: Loading an alternator causes its terminal voltage to drop or rise depending upon (i) Magnitude of load (ii) Nature of load. For a pure resistive load it drops by 8-12% below no-load value while for a lagging p.f. load the drop is 25-50% below no load value and it is 20-30% higher for leading p.f. loads. The reasons are 1) Armature resistance 2) Armature winding leakage reactance and 3) Armature reaction. Electromotive force (EMF) and Magnetomotive force (MMF) methods are used to predetermine the regulation of non-salient pole alternators. In emf method, the effect of armature reaction is represented as a fictitious reactance X ar for each phase of the alternator. In mmf method effect of armature leakage reactance is replaced by additional armature reaction. MMF method is more accurate. Direct load Test is not preferred due to the absence of large sized loads and the enormous power wastage involved in testing. Voltage regulation is defined as a percentage of rated voltage when load current is reduced to zero suddenly by throwing off the load keeping I f and speed constant. PRECAUTIONS: (Not to be included in the Record) 1. Remove the fuse before starting wiring. 2. Fuse rating calculation: Since this is no load test, the required fuse rating is only 20% of the rated current of the alternator. 3. Keep Motor field Rheostat in minimum resistance Position. 4.

The rotor conductors are heavy bars of copper, Aluminium that are permanently shortcircuited. The rotor slots are given a slight skew for quieter operation and to prevent the locking tendency of the rotor. The direct load test is conducted on the squirrel cage induction motor to plot its performance characteristics under loading condition. This is more accurate than the predetermination techniques as the latter doesn t take into account the effect of factors such as temperature, which cause significant change in its operation. PRECAUTIONS: (Not to be included in the Record) 1. Remove the fuse carrier before starting wiring 2. Fuse rating calculation: Since this is load test, the required fuse rating is only 120% of the rated current of the motor 3. Before switching on the supply ensure the motor in on no load condition and the autotransformer is in the minimum position 4. Replace the fuse carriers with appropriate fuse wires after the circuit connections are checked by the staff in charge 20

21 PROCEDURE: 1. The connections are given as shown in circuit diagram. 2. The 3Ф ac supply is switched ON to the motor using the starter. 3. Under this load condition, one set of readings of the ammeter (I L ), voltmeter (V L ), wattmeter (W), spring balance and the speed (N) of motor are noted down. 4. Now the mechanical load on motor is increased in regular steps in such a way that the current drawn by the motor increases in steps of 1A. 5. At each step of loading, the entire meter readings are noted down in the tabular column. 6. This procedure is continued until the current drawn by the motor equals 120% of its rated value. 7. After the experiment is completed, the main supply is switched OFF. 8. After completing the experiment, Torque, Output Power, Power Factor, % Slip and % efficiency are calculated by using the given formulae. 9.

Then apply rated voltage and record this wattmeter reading as a negative power. 5. The autotransformer is brought back to its minimum position and the mains are switched OFF. BLOCKED ROTOR TEST: 1. The circuit connections are given as per the circuit diagram, 2. With the autotransformer starter in minimum position and the rotor in blocked position, the mains are switched ON. 3. By varying the autotransformer, the input voltage is gradually increased such that the ammeter reads rated current. 4. All the meter readings are noted down in this condition. 5.

Connections are made as per the circuit diagram. 2. Close the D. P. S. T. switch. 3. Start the motor by varying the three phase auto transformer gradually. 4. At no load all the meter readings should noted down. 5. The three phase auto transformer should be reduced to zero potential position. 6. Open the D. P. S. T. switch. BLOCKED ROTOR TEST 1. Connections are made as per the circuit diagram. 2. The load applied on the brake drum and the rotor is not allowed to rotate. 3. Close the D. P. S. T. switch. 4. The three phase auto transformer should be adjusted gradually till the ammeter reads the rated current of the motor. 5. All the meter readings should be noted down. 6. The three phase auto transformer should be reduced to zero potential position. 7. Open the D. P. S. T. switch. 33
