A $$3$$-phase, $$2$$-pole, $$50$$ $$Hz,$$ synchronous generator has a rating of $$250$$ $$MVA,$$ $$0.8$$ $$pf$$ lagging. The kinetic energy of the machine at synchronous speed is $$100$$ $$MJ.$$ The machine is running steadily at synchronous speed and delivering $$60$$ $$MW$$ power at a power angle of $$10$$ electrical degrees. If the load is suddenly removed, assuming the acceleration is constant for $$10$$ cycles, the value of the power angle after $$5$$ cycles is ________ electrical degrees.

Two generating units rated $$300$$ $$MW$$ and $$400$$ $$MW$$ have governor speed regulation of $$6\%$$ and $$4\%$$ respectively from no load to full load. Both the generating units are operating in parallel to share a load of $$600$$ $$MW.$$ Assuming free governor action, the load shared by the larger unit is _______ $$MW.$$

A $$25$$ $$kVA,$$ $$400$$ $$V,$$ $$\Delta$$ - connected, $$3$$-phase, cylindrical rotor synchronous generator requires a field current of $$5$$ $$A$$ to maintain the rated armature current under short-circuit condition. For the same field current, the open-circuit voltage is $$360$$ $$V.$$ Neglecting the armature resistance and magnetic saturation, its voltage regulation (in $$\%$$ with respect to terminal voltage), when the generator delivers the rated load at $$0.8$$ $$pf$$ leading, at rated terminal voltage is ____________.

A thin soap bubble of radius R = 1 cm, and thickness a = 3.3 µm(a << R), is at a potential of 1 V with respect to a reference point at infinity. The bubble bursts and becomes a single spherical drop of soap (assuming all the soap is contained in the drop) of radius r. The volume of the soap in the thin bubble is $$4\mathrm{πR}^2\mathrm a$$ and that of the drop is $$\frac43\mathrm{πr}^3$$. The potential in volts, of the resulting single spherical drop with respect to the same reference point at infinity is __________. (Give the answer up to two decimal places.)
