S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. All the condition result in slow running of motor. Over load and open stator coil may be additional reason for slow running.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. We know that (%VR=1-V_FL/V_NL )×100

S3. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given that, V=V_m sin⁡〖(ωt-15°)〗, and current is leading by 10°.
So, I=I_m sin⁡〖(ωt-15°+10°)〗= I=I_m sin⁡〖(ωt-5°)〗

S4. Ans. (c)
Case 1
Case 2
L_eff=(L_1 L_2)/(L_1+L_2 )=L^2/2L=0.5L=a=0.5
Case 3
If both are differentially coupled then
L_eff=0;So minimum Value=0

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. L∝ln⁡〖d/r’〗

S6. Ans. (d)
Sol. V_c (t) = 1/C ∫(-∞)^t▒i(t)dt =1/C ∫(-∞)^t▒〖10 δ(t)dt〗
= (10u(t))/C

S7. Ans. (b)
Sol. Star-star

S5. Ans. (a)
Sol. Due to same direction of current in the adjoining winding it experiences force of attraction.

S9. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given,N_Y(P) /N_∆(P) =5=I_∆(P) /I_Y(P)
I_∆(P) =5×I_Y(P)
I_∆(P) = I_(∆(L)/√3)=10/√3 A
Now, I_(Y(P) )=10/(5√3)=1.155 A

S10. Ans. (d)
Sol. G (s) =((0.5s+1))/((0.05s+1)) On comparing with,
G (s) =((1+aTs))/((1+Ts)) We get, T= 0.05 and a=10
∅_n= 〖sin^(-1) (〗⁡〖(a-1)/(a+1))〗= 55°
And ω_m= 1/(T√a) = 6.32 rad/sec
