    Effective annual interest rate?

    If a student makes monthly deposits of 1,200 into an account with a nominal annual interest rate of 4.5% compounded monthly, will he have enough after 5 years to purchase a $105,000 property in cash? However, the answer used i = 4.5%/12 = 3.75% Where is my mistake in using the formula?

    How to convert non-annual interest rate to annual interest rate?

    Generator internal voltage

    The question: The answer: However, I think the answer is wrong, it should be: Vi = Vt + Id*Xd = 1+ 0.97*1.1j = 1.46 pu So, the voltage is 1.46 * 250 kV = 365.6 kV Do you agree?

    Complex Imaginary question

    The angle is between the terminal voltage and the current the internal voltage has nothing to do with it. Do you agree?

    Complex Imaginary question

    I think it's a mistake since the angle for the current should be kept -34.9. Am I right?

    Motion in a magnetic field

    Current: Index finger pointing out of the paper. Mag. field: Middle finger pointing right. Force: Thumb pointing UP not DOWN.

    How does starting torque increase by increasing rotor resistance?

    The solution is A. But, from the below attachment the resistance of the rotor IS related to the MAXIMU torque! So, in the question saying that the maximum torque is independent of the rotor resistance is wrong. What do you think?

    Induction motor highest real power condition

    The question: The answer: I am confused isn't peak power is at peak torque i.e. breakdown torque? Which is at just above 0 RPM?

    Induction motor with reversing stator magnetic field

    The answer: The strength of the torque depends on the difference in speed between the stator's rotating magnetic field and the rotor's rotation. The larger the difference in speed the greater the induced voltage, current and torque. When the motor is starting up, let’s assume the magnetic...

    What type of connection configuration for the three-phase transformer bank shown

    Can anyone help. I am confused about the secondary only.

    what is the fault level of paralleled transformers?

    When paralleling transformers the fault level at the bus is it the sum of the individual transformer fault level?

    Transformer Saturation Question

    you wrote in the answer "As the frequency is decreased, the flux density will increase which will result in transformer core saturation. This will increase transformer losses and the heating may damage the transformer winding insulation." This is not correct. from the NCEES handbook P#58...

    Transformer core (eddy + hysteresis) losses

    The question is: The solution is: However, from the NCEES handbook P#58 For Eddy current losses I think they will not change. For the Hysteresis losses the flux is raised to a power greater than 1, so, I think it would actually reduce. right?

    Delta-wye phase shift

    For an ABC (positive) phase sequence. The secondary line voltage leads the primary voltage by 30 degrees. right?
