I assume the formula to get X'd from x'd is the same as X"d?

In the short circuit current equation for the variable Isc3, what does the 3 signify?

LMischler (talkcontribs)

Yes, the formula to get from is the same as for .

To be transparent, I need to check with our experts:

  • to confirm what I think = that Icc3 is the short-circuit current for a three line short circuit
  • to confirm if this paragraph is still up-to-date (it was not reviewed for some time)

How can the equation for x"d have x"d in on both sides of the equation?

DMullins (talkcontribs)

NVM. I see the difference between X"d and x"d.

Hi @DMullins in fact on the right of the equation you have , expressed in %, which is a characteristic of the generator during subtransient phase (= subtransient reactance, expressed in %, only the reactance is used because the resistance is negligible). This characteristic is provided by the manufacturer (see Fig.N5 for an example of manufacturer impedance table in %). It is used in the equation to calculate , which is the generator actual short-circuit impedance (in ohms) during subtransient phase. Does that clarify it?

I also made small modifications to this paragraph (fine-tuned the look&feel of the equation, used an inline equation for for coherence, I hope it helps making things more clear
