S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. current coil has very small resistance. When it is connected in place of the voltage coil, then the whole current will flow through it and will cause damage to the current coil.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. For eliminating n^th harmonic: chording angle=1/n×full pitch

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Magnetic field, H=i/2πr A/m

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol. Nickel is a ferromagnetic material.

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. Energy loss to magnetize and demagnetize the core.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Active power of synchronous generator
P=EV/X_s Sin θ
∴ for Pmax, sin θ =1
⇒ θ =90°

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Demand factor=max. demand/connected load=1.5/2=0.75.
