A 2-wire dc street mains AB, 600 m long is fed from both ends at 220 V. Loads of 20 A, 40 A, 50 A and 30 A are tapped at distances of 100 m, 250 m, 400 m and 500 m from the end A respectively. If the area o f X-section o f distributor conductor is 1 square centimeter, find the minimum consumer voltage. Take p = 1.7 x 10-6 ohm-cm. (8) 12(a)(i). Show that the inductance-per unit length o f an overhead line due to internal flux linkage is constant and is independent of size of conductor. (8) (ii). Fig. 12a shows the spacing o f a double circuit 3-phase overhead line. The phase sequence is ‘abc’ and the line is completely transposed. The conductor radius is 1.3cm.
