Answer / shashidhara tm

AC machines require magnetic flux change at designed frequency... In case of India, 50Hz. For example, if no changing flux is given to an induction motor, it won't produce a rotating magnetic flux resultant on the rotor and it won't rotate the rotor. If no alternating voltage is given to a fluorescent lamp, it won't produce high voltage breakdown in the inert gas and emit UV.
But I'm not sure whether a DC motor works or not on AC voltage...

1 Answers   Jindal,

A group of machines (wind turbines) connected with 33KV feeder and each machines are having individual VCB. The 33KV feeder connected with 110KV/33KV substation. The 33KV feeder tripped by over current at Substation and fault recorded at Substation as OC-R&Y phase. Same time the group of machines VCB tripped by over voltage, the fault recorded voltage was above 66KV by numerical Under/Over voltage relay. While grid drop time, this much of voltage hike is possible?
