Verification of Kirchhoff s Current Law

AIM: To verify the Kirchhoffs Current Law for a given circuit.


Theory:-
This law states that the algebraic sum of currents meeting at a junction of conductors is zero. In
other words , the sum of currents flowing away from a junction is equal to the sum of currents
flowing towards the junction.
Kirchhoffs current law is nothing more than a restatement of principle of conservation of
charge.
Since the amount of charge entering a junction at an instant must be same as the amount of
charge leaving the junction.

Verification of Kirchhoff s Voltage Law

AIM: To verify the Kirchhoffs Voltage Law for a given circuit.


Theory:-
This law states that any time instant the algebraic sum of voltages around a closed circuit or a
loop is zero. That is , for a closed circuit having k elements ,
K
Vj=0
J=0
Where Vj represents the voltage drop of the j th element .
V1+V2+V3+.Vk = 0
This statement simply tells us that if we start from a particular junction and go around a closed
circuit so as to come back to the same junction , the net potential drop (or potential rise ) is
zero, Because we have come back to the point at the same potential .
Kirchhoffs Voltage Law can also be stated as : in any closed circuit the algebraic sum of the
products of current and resistance in each of the conductors is equal to the algebraic sum of
the emfs of the batteries

3.SERIES AND PARALLEL RESONANCE

AIM: To Obtain Frequency characteristics of the Series and Parallel Resonance circuits and
finding the Resonant Frequency, Bandwidth and Quality factor or RLC Net work.

Theory:-
The Resonant circuit is a combination of R,L and C elements, it should be Series, Parallel or
General Sires Parallel circuit.
The Resonance of a circuit is defined as the condition that occurs when a circuit inductive and
Capacitive Reactances are exactly equal.
Depending upon the frequency of the source voltage Vs , the circuit behaves either as inductive
or as capacitive . How ever at a particular frequency, when the inductive reactance XL equals
the Capacitive Reactance XC , then the circuit behaves as a purely resistive circuit. This
phenomenon is called Resonance.
These resonant circuits make it possible for a radio receiver to tune in, or receive a desired
frequency to select a particular radio station. The tuning of a knob means operating a variable
capacitance, hence various resonant frequencies can be tuned / obtained by varying the
capacitance in the RLC circuit.
Series Resonance:-
Inductive reactance XL =L or 2 fL
Capacitive Reactance XC = 1/C or 1/2 fC
The total impedance of the circuit = Z = R + J (XL - XC )
But the resultant reactance of the circuit is zero under resonance, XL - XC = 0
At the Resonant Frequency ,the net reactance is zero because XL = XC
The circuit impedance Z becomes minimum and is equal to the Resistance R , and the line
current will be maximum.

Parallel Resonance :-
It is said to be in resonance, when its reactive component must be zero. It is defined as the
frequency where the inductive and capacitive reactances of the two branches are equal and the
line current is a minimum, hence L/RC (dynamic impedance) is maximum and is resistive.
Comparison of Series Resonance & Parallel Resonance

S,No Series Resonance Parallel Resonance

2 It has unity Power Factor It has unity Power Factor
3 Current at resonance is E/R Current at resonance is E/(L/RC)
4 Effective Impedance is R Effective Impedance is L/RC
5 Resonant frequency is 1/2LC Resonant frequency is 1/21/LC-R2/L2
6 It has minimum Impedance & maximum It has maximum Impedance & minimum
current at resonant frequency current at resonant frequency
7 inductive reactance XL ,and the Capacitive The suspectance of inductance and
Reactance XC, cancelled mutually capacitance is cancelled mutually
Resonant Frequency (fr) = 1/2LC. Hz.
The Quantitative performance of a resonant circuit is evaluated by means of Q-fatcor
Q-Factor = Real Power / Avg. Power = I2 XL / I2 R = XL / R= 0 L/R(Induct.React)
Q-Factor = I2 XC / I2 R = XC / R= 1/0 C/R or f0 / (f2-f1)(For capacitive reactance)
Q-Factor of series ckt is defined as voltage magnification of the ckt at Resonance
Volt.Magnification= Voltage across L or C / applied voltage=VL/VR
Band Width = (f2-f1) Hz

SUPER POSITION THEOREM

AIM: To verify the superposition theorem for a given circuit.

Theory:-
This theorem states that The current through, or voltage across any element in a linear
bilateral network is equal to the algebraic sum of the currents of voltages produced
independently by each sources ( i.e. by getting other sources to 0).
A given response in a network regulating from a number of independent sources(including
initial condition source) may be computed by summing the response to each individual source
with all other sources made in operative( reduced to zero voltage or zero current).
This statement describes the property homogeneity in linear networks.
So it is the combined properties off additivity and homogeneity off linear network.
It is a result of the linear relation between current and volt in circuits having linear impedances.

RECIPROCITY THEOREM
AIM: To verify Reciprocity theorem for a given circuit.

Theory:-
Ohms law and Kirchoffs laws are the fundamental tools for network analysis, while network
theorems are very powerful tools for solving complicated network problems.
It is applicable only a simple sources network. The theorem states that In any linear bilateral
network the ratio of voltage source E volts in one branch to the current I in another branch is
the same as the ratio obtained if the positions of E and I are interchanged, other emfs being
removed.. (or)
If in any network , a potential V introduced in to any branch A causes a current I to flow in
any other branch B; then the same potential V introduced into branch B will cause the
same value of current to flow in branch A.
In other words , this law simply means that V&I are mutually interchangeable. The ratio V/I
is called the transfer resistance or Impedance.

Theory:-
It is similar to Thevenins Theorem , while Thevenins Theorem based on the idea of
equivalent source of emf. Nortons theorem is based on the idea of an equivalent current source
Nortons theorem replaces a complicated circuit with an a constant current supply and
resistance in parallel with it.
This theorem states that Any two terminals linear bilateral DC network can be replaced by an
equivalent ckt, consisting of a current source Isc in parallel with an equivalent resistance Rth.
(or) Any arrangement of the source of emf s and the resistance can be replaced by an
equivalent current source in parallel with a resistance .The current from the source is the short
circuit current in the original system , and r is the equivalent resistance of the network between
its two terminals, when all sources of emfs are replaced by their internal resistances.
Isc Short circuit voltage between the terminals of network.
Rth Equivalent resistance measured between terminals.
When all energy sources are replaced by their internal resistances

MAGNETIZATION CHARACTERISTICS OF DC SHUNT GENERATOR


(OPEN CIRCUIT CHARACTERISTICS)

AIM: To find the Critical Resistance (RC) and Open Circuit Characteristics (OCC)
of a dc Shunt Generator.
THEORY:
MAGNETISATION CURVE:
The graph between the field current and corresponding flux per pole is called magnetization
characteristics of the machine this is same as B-H curve of the material used for the pole construction.
In a dc Generator for any given speed the induced emf in the armature is directly pro portional
to the flux per pole.
Eg = ZN / 60 x P / A
Where is the flux per pole in webers, Z is the number of conductors in armature.
OPEN CIRCUIT CHARACTERISTICS:
The armature is driven at a constant to its rated value. The terminal voltage (VL) at no load condition
is measured at diff If values. The graph VL Vs If is called open-circuit characteristics. VL differs from
Eg due to (a) Armature reaction (b) voltage drop in armature circuit Ia is very small at no load
condition, these effects are negligible. Hence VL = Eg at no load condition, thus the O.C characteristics
is same as magnetization curve.
CRITICAL FIELD RESISTANCE (Rc):
Critical field resistance is defined as maximum field circuit resistance at which the Generator would
just excite at any given speed. At this value the Generator will just excite. If the field circuit resistance
is increases beyond this value the generator will fail to excite.
It is the initial slope value of the OCC curve in the linear region (AB) passing through the origin. If
the field circuit resistance (Rf) is increase to Rc, the machine fail to excite and no emf is induced in the
generator for exciting the Generator (Rf < Rc ).
CRITICAL SPEED:
For any given field circuit resistance, the speed above which the Generator builds up an appreciable
voltage is called Critical speed.

SWINBURNES TEST

AIM: To per-determine the efficiency of a DC shunt machine


(Considering it as a motor or generator) by performing Swinburnes test and also to draw the
characteristics curve.

THEORY:
Testing of DC machines can be divided in to three methods; (1) Direct method (2)
Regenerative and (3) Indirect method.
Swinburns Test is an indirect testing method of DC machine. In this method, the
constant losses of the DC machine is calculated at no load. Hence it is efficiency either as a
motor are as generator can be pre determined. In this method, the power requirement is very
small. Hence, this method can be used to predetermine the efficiency of higher capacity dc
machines as motor and as generator. It is applicable to those machines flux is practically
constant, ie, Shunt and compound machines only
Power input at no load = Constant losses + Armature copper losses
Power input at no load = constant losses
Power input = Va Ia + Vf If

LOSSES IN DC MACHINE:
The losses in a dc machine can be divided as (1) Constant losses (2) Variable losses, which
changes with the load.
CONSTANT LOSSES:
1. Mechanical losses: Friction and winding losses are called mechanical losses. They
depend up on the speed. A dc shunt machine is basically a constant speed machine
booth as generator or as motor thus, the mechanical losses are constant.
2. Iron losses: For a DC shunt machine, the field current Hence the flux per pole is
constant (Neglecting the armature reaction which reduces the net flux in the air gap).
Hence, hysterics and eddy current losses (Which are also called as iron losses) remain
constant.
3. Field copper losses: Under normal operating condition of a dc shunt machine, the
field current remains constant. Thus, power received by the field circuit (Which is
consumed as field copper losses) is constant.
Constant losses in a dc shunt machine = Mechanical losses + Iron losses + Field copper losses
Variable losses: The power lost in the armature circuit of a dc machine increases with the
increasing load. Thus armature copper losses are called as variable losses.

Efficiency of a dc machine:
Output power
% Efficiency = --------------------X 100
Input power
As a Generator Input Power, Pin = Pout + constant losses + armature copper losses at a given
load Ia2 Ra.
Pout = VL IL watts
Where Ia = IL + If Self excited generator
Ia = IL Seperately excited generator
As a motor input power Pin = VL*IL + Vf If
Output power Pout = Pin Constant losses armature copper losses
IL = Ia + If Self excited motor

OPEN CIRCUIT & SHORT CIRCUIT TEST ON 1- TRANSFORMER.
(OC & SC Test)
AIM:
To determine the Iron Losses, Copper Losses of a Transformer and hence calculate its
Regulation & Efficiency.

THEORY:
A transformer is a static device which transfers the electrical energy from one circuit to another
circuit without any change in the frequency. The transformer works on the principle of
electromagnetic induction between two windings placed on a common magnetic circuit. These
two windings are electrically insulated from each other and also from the core.
The losses in a transformer are (1) magnetic losses or core losses
(2) Ohmic losses or copper losses
The losses of a transformer, magnetic losses and ohmic losses can be determined by
performing (a) open circuit test and (b) short circuit test. From the above tests, the efficiency
and regulation of a given transformer can be predetermined. The power consumed during these
tests is very less as compared to the load test. In this experiment LV side parameters are
denoted by suffix 1 and HV side parameters by suffix 2.
Open circuit test:
In open circuit test, usually HV side is kept open and meters are connected on LV side,
the ammeter reads the no load current Io and wattmeter reads the power input Wo. The no load
current Io is 2 to 5 %of full load current .hence the copper losses at no load are negligible. Wo
represents the iron losses or core losses. Iron losses are the sum of hysterisis and eddy current
losses.
Wo=Vo Io Coso Cos o=Wo/(Vo Io)
IW=Io Cos o I=Io Sin o
Ro=Vo/Iw Xo=Vo/I
Short circuit test:
This test is performed to determine the equivalent resistance and leakage reactance of the
transformer and copper losses at full load condition.
In this test usually LV side is shorted and meters are connected on HV side .a variable low
voltage is applied to the HV winding with the help of an auto transformer. This voltage is
varied till the rated current flows in the HV side or LV side .The voltage applied is 5 to 10% of
rated voltage, while the rated current flows in the windings. The watt meter indicates the full
load copper losses at Vsc. But the iron losses at this low voltage are negligible as compared to
the iron losses at rated voltage.

Single Phase Transformer
Primary Voltage : 220 V : Secondary Voltage : 220 V
Capacity : 1 KVA or 2KVA : Frequency : 50 Hz

THEORY:

When the secondary is loaded the secondary current I2 is setup. The magnitude and
phase of I2 with respect to V2 is determined by the characteristics of the load. The secondary
current sets up its own mmf and hence its own flux 2 which is in opposition to main primary
flux which is due to I0 the secondary ampere turns N2*I2 are known as demagnetizing
ampere turns .The opposing secondary flux I2 weakens the primary flux momentary. Hence
primary back Emf E1 tends to be reduced. For a movement V1 gain the upper hand over E1
and hence causes more current to flow in primary.
Let the additional primary current be I21 .It is known as load component of primary
current. This current is antiphase with I21 the additional primary mmf N1*I2 sets up its own flux
21 which is in opposite to 2 and is equal to its magnitude. Hence the two cancel each other
out. So the magnetic effects of secondary current I2 are immediately neutralized by the
additional primary current I21.Hence whatever the load conditions be, the net flux passing
through core is approximately the same as no-load.
