Hi Mr Kitcher. I am contacting you for the reason of the book A. J. Watkins C. Kitcher electrical installations calculations advanced ex2 Q5, A reactor allows a current of 15Amps to flow from a 230v 50Hz supply determine the current which will flow at the same voltage if the frequency changes to (a) 45Hz , (b) 55Hz. ignore the resistance. The Answers in the book are for (a) 15.97Amps and (b) 13.07Amps. Please can you explain how you got the answer as I keep geting for (a) 15.34Amps and (b) 15.12Amps. The calculations i used to get the answer for (a) is 230/15=15.3, 15.3/(2×3.142×45)=0.053, 2×3.142x45x0.053=14.99, 230/14.99=15.34Amps. and for (b) is 230/15=15.3, 15.3/(2×3.142×55)=0.044, 2×3.142x55x0.044=15.21 230/15.21=15.12Amps. Can you please explain where I am going wrong and show me how you calculated the answer please. Thank you for your help in this matter
