# AC POWER

## 1. Electric Power Generation ac

DC or AC
Edison started dc power generation and transmission, 1882.
First DC transmission lines in Germany (2400 V dc, 59 km),
1882.
Nikolas Tesla invented ac induction synchronous motors,
1888.
First 3-phase ac transmission line in Germany (12 kV ac, 179
km), 1891
Coal or Natural Gas
39% coal, 27% natural gas, 19% nuclear, 6% hydro, 7%
renewable (wind=4.4%, biomass=1.7%, solar 0.4%,
geothermal=0.4%), 1% oil in 2015

## Energy (work) = power time

1 kWh = 0.5 lb of coal, 0.07 gallons of oil, 7.7 cubic feet of
natural gas, and 8200 gallons of dam water.

## Example 4. An incandescent lamp having a hot resistance of 66

is put into a socket that is connected to a 115-V supply. What is the
current flow through the lamp? (I = 1.74 A)
What is the power of the lamp? (P = 200W)
Example 5. The battery is rated at 12V. The total line resistance is
0.04 ohm, the battery internal resistance is 0.01 ohm, and the load
resistance is 1.15 ohms. Determine (1) Current flowing in the circuit,
and (2) voltage across the load. (I = 10A, Vload = 11.5V).

## Example 6. Assume a 150-W incandescent lamp at each ceiling

outlet. Also assume the load connected to one convenience outlet to
be a 10-A hair dryer, with a power factor of 0.8. Calculate (a) the
power of the lamps and the current I1 and (b) the power of the hair
dryer, and (c) the total current, assuming a 120V ac source.

## (a) P = 2(150) = 300W, I1 = 300/120 = 2.5A

(b) apparent power S = (120) (10) = 1200 [VA]; real power P =
(120) (10) (0.8) = 960W,
(c) I2 = (10) (0.8j0.6) because the current lags the voltage in a
hair dryer circuit which has inductance; Itot = 2.5 + (8j6) =
8 + 2.5 j6 = 10.5 j6 = 12.1<30 [A]
Example 7. The nameplate of a (single-phase) motor shows the
following data: 3 hp, 240 V ac, 17 A. Assume an efficiency of 90%.
Calculate the motor (and therefore circuit) power factor.
SOLUTION 1 hp = 746W. The motor output is (3)(746) = 2238W.
Power input = 2238/0.9 = 2487W = P (real power).
For ac, P = VI(power factor) that is 2487W = (240V) (17A) (power
factor).
Power factor = 2487/(240 17) = 0.61.
*** Note that there is a large difference between volt-amperes and
watts.
