Q.

A Synchronous condenser is

  • Aa synchronous motor with capacitor connected across terminals to improve pf
  • B a synchronous motor operating at full load with leading pf
  • CAn overexcited synchronous motor partially supplying mechanical load, and also improving pf of the system to which it is connected
  • DAn overexcited synchronous motor operating at no load with leading pf used in large power stations for power factor improvement
Correct Answer : (D)

An overexcited synchronous motor operating at no load with leading pf used in large power stations for power factor improvement

Hints :
