Q10. Which of the following instrument is commonly used to measure primary current of a transformer connected to mains?
(a) Electrostatic meter
(b) Current transformer
(c) Moving coil type meter
(d) Moving iron meter

Solutions
S1. Ans. (b)
Sol. air friction damping

S2. Ans. (b)
Sol. The correct relation for torque in moving iron is 1/2 I^2 dL/dθ.

S3. Ans. (a)
Sol. mumetal or permalloy

S4. Ans. (a)
Sol. Deflection, θ∝I^2
So, V∝I^2
V2 = V1 ((I^2 2)/(I^2 1)), putting the value in equation we get as the result
V2 = 25 V
S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. Moving coil permanent magnet instrument can be used for the measurement of DC only.

S6. Ans. (b)
Sol. has high torque to weight ratio of moving parts.

S7. Ans. (d)
Sol. Both spring and controlling torque are associated with term aging.

S8. Ans. (a)
Sol. The average value of ac current is zero so the instrument will measure 2 V .

S9. Ans. (a)
Sol. Moving iron

S10. Ans. (d)
Sol. Moving iron meter
