6. A 440V single-phase motor is rated at 7.5kW and operates at a power factor of 0.8
(lagging) with an efficiency of 88 per cent. Find the current taken from the supply.
7. A battery of 40 cells in series delivers a constant discharging current of 4A for 40
hours, the average p.d. per cell being 1.93V during the process. The battery is then
completely recharged by a current of 8A flowing for 24 hours, the average p.d.per
cell being 2.2V. Calculate the ampere hour and the watt hour efficiencies for the
8. If 0.5m of manganin resistance wire, 0.1mm diameter, have a resistance of 267.5
Ohms, find the resistivity of the material.
9. A fore-pole, wave wound generator delivers 40kW at 200V. Its armature has 181
turns and a resistance of 0.01 Ohms. The air-gap flux/pole is 0.02Wb. Calculate the
speed of the machine, neglecting any voltage drop at the brushes and taking the
shunt-field resistance as 50 Ohms.
10. The armature of a four-pole generator rotates at 600 rev/min. The area of each poleface is 0.09m2 and the flux density in the air-gap is 0.92T. Find the average e.m.f.
induced in each conductor. If the armature winding is made up of 210 single-turn
coils connected so as to provided four parallel paths between the brushes, find the
generator terminal voltage.
