Seatwork:
1. A shunt generator supplies a
load of 5,500 W at 110 V
through a pair of feeder
conductors having a resistance
of 0.02 ohm each. The
armature, shunt field
resistances are 0.15 ohm and
50 ohms respectively. Find the
emf generated.
Ans: E = 117.83 V

2. A short shunt compound

generator has an armature,
series field and shunt field
resistances are 0.04 ohm, 0.03
ohm and 80 ohms respectively.
The generator serves a 20 kW,
200 V load through a feeder with
an equivalent resistance of 0.1
ohm. Solve for the power
generated by the armature.
Ans: Pg = 22.29 kW
