2. A buffer amplifier
Which of the above statements is/are correct?
(a) 1 only

Sol. Ohmic losses=air gap power or rotor input power-mechanical power(P_m )
Sol. Blocked rotor test of a 3-phase induction motor:
Same as short-circuit test of a transformer
Low voltage is applied on the stator terminal
Full load current passes through stator by which full load copper loss(I^2 R)
Can be calculated.
Sol. for star-connection
Note: – for balanced star-connected system V_L=√3 V_ph and line voltage leads the phase voltage by 30°.
Sol. Phase-lead compensator is used to decrease both rise time and overshoot.
Sol. Phase-lead compensators are used to reduce steady state error as well as to improve damping. It is also used to decrease both rise time and overshoot.
Sol. For Voltage follower:
both the input and output voltages are the same.
voltage gain is equivalent to 1.
It is also known as unity gain, buffer & isolation amplifier.
A voltage follower can be used as a buffer because it draws very little current due to the high input impedance of the amplifier, thus eliminating loading effects while still maintaining the same voltage at the output.
