THERMAL AND HYDRO PRIME MOVERS (Electrical and Electronics Engineering)Time: 3 hours Max. Marks: 70

Note: 1. Question Paper consists of two parts (Part-A and Part-B) 2. Answer ALL the question in Part-A

3. Answer any Four Questions from Part-B

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PART ?A

1. a)Explain the importance of cooling and lubrication in IC engine.

b)Discuss about Carnot cycle.

c)Discuss about regeneration system used in gas turbine plant.

d)Differentiate between reciprocating and centrifugal pumps.

e)What is governing? Why it is required for hydraulic turbines?

f)Discuss about base load and peak load power plants.

PART -B

2. a)Explain in detail the valve timing diagram of four stroke SI engine.

b) What is the necessity of a carburetor in a petrol engine? With a neat sketch explain the

working of a simple carburetor and write its limitations.

3. a)Explain the working of steam power plant with reheating system.

b) The nozzles of a Delaval steam turbine are supplied with dry saturated steam at a

pressure of 9 bar. The pressure at the outlet is 1 bar. The turbine has two nozzles with

a throat diameter of 2.5 mm. Assuming nozzle efficiency as 90% and that of turbine

rotor 35%, find the quality of steam used per hour and the power developed.

4. a)With a neat sketch explain the working of closed cycle gas turbine plant.

b) The air enters the compressor of an open cycle constant pressure gas turbine at a

pressure of 1 bar and temperature of 20?C. The pressure of the air after compression is

4 bar. The isentropic efficiencies of compressor and turbine are 80% and 85%

respectively. The air-fuel ratio used is 90 : 1. If flow rate of air is 3.0 kg/s, find :(i)Power developed.(ii) Thermal efficiency of the cycle.Assume C

P

= 1.0 kJ/kg K and ?

= 1.4 for air and gases.Calorific value of fuel = 41800 kJ/kg.

5. a) A jet of water of 75 mm diameter strikes a curved vane at its center with a velocity of

20 m/s. The curved vane is moving with a velocity of 8 m/s in the direction of jet.Find

the force exerted on the plate in the direction of the jet, power and efficiency of the

jet. Assume the plate to be smooth.

b) Explain the working of a centrifugal pump with a neat diagram showing all the

components.
