SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. when the axis of field flux is in line with the armature flux then the condition is called “FLOATING” in case of synchronous motor.
In case of floating –

Er = V ie armature current = 0
Losses = zero
Er = 0

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. 100% excitation means full or normal excitation:
Excitation Relation b/w Eb&V
Normal Eb=V
Under Eb<V
Over Eb>V

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. SCR=1/(Xs (adjusted)(PU) )

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Critical disruptive voltage: it is the minimum phase neutral voltage at which the corona occurs in a power transmission line.
go=Vc/(rlog⁡(d/r) )
Where, go= potential gradient at conductor surface
Vc= critical disruptive voltage
go= 30KV/cm(max.) …… at 76 cm of Hg and 25⁰ C.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. If conductors are equally spaced then per phase inductance will be same and receiving end voltage will be balanced and communication interference will not take place. So here no need of transposition.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. for induction type instruments –
T_d=kwϕ1mϕ2m sin α
ϕ1m,ϕ2m = maximum fluxes produced by the currents
α = phase difference between the two flukes
So,

So, in induction type instrument deflecting torque depends on the frequency.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Hopkinson’s test is to check the commutation condition at Full-load for large DC machines.
Hopkinson’s: – Also known as Regenerative, back to back test and heat run test

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. χv = μv − 1

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Natural frequency =1/√LC
And damping coefficient(α)=R/2L
Damping factor=α/ω
