A $$3$$-phase, $$11$$-$$kV$$ generator feeds power to a constant power unity power factor load of $$100$$ $$MW$$ through a $$3$$-phase transmission line. The line-to-line voltage at the terminals of the machine is maintained constant at $$11$$ $$kV$$. The per unit positive sequence impedance of the line based on $$100$$ $$MVA$$ and $$11$$ $$kV$$ is $$j$$ $$0.2$$. The line to line voltage at the load terminals is measured to be less than $$11$$ $$kV$$. The total reactive power to be injected at the terminals of the load to increase the line-to-line voltage at the load terminals to $$11$$ $$kV$$ is
A
$$100$$ MVAR
B
$$10.1$$ MVAR
C
$$-100$$ MVAR

The ABCD parameters of a $$3$$-phase overhead transmission line are $$\,A = D = 0.9\angle {0^ \circ }.\,\,B = 200\,\angle {90^ \circ }\,\,\Omega \,\,\,$$ and $$\,\,C = 0.95\, \times \,\,{10^{ - 3}}\angle {90^ \circ }\,\,S.\,\,\,\,$$ At no-load condition, a shunt inductive reactor is connected at the receiving end of the line to limit the receiving end voltage to be equal to the sending-end voltage. The ohmic value of the reactor is
A
$$\infty \Omega$$
B
$$2000\,\Omega$$
C
$$105.26\,\Omega$$
D
$$1052.6\,\Omega$$
