A three phase alternator has negligible stator resistance. A short circuit test is conducted on this alternator. At a particular speed a field current of $${{\rm I}_f}$$ is required to drive the rated armature current. If the speed of the alternator is reduced to half, the field current required to maintain rated armature current
A
would be equal to $${{\rm I}_f}$$
B
would be equal to $$2$$ $${{\rm I}_f}$$
C
would be equal to $${{\rm I}_f}/2$$
D
cannot be predicted due to insufficient data
