# A problem on synchronous generators

This is part of a problem of my past examination in Electric Machines. I don't know how to solve it yet.

A salient pole synchronous generator $(X_q < X_d)$ has a connected load at rated voltage. If the synchronous generator, operating with a voltage regulation zero, and a voltage drop in the resistance of armor 0.05pu (when the magnitude of the armature current is minimal), determine: a) Power factor load. b) The load angle $\delta$ of the synchronous generator.
