Solutions

S1. Ans. (b)

Sol. A 3-phase 4- wire system is commonly used for secondary distribution.

S2. Ans. (b)

Sol. 9.9 kV is usually not the generating voltage.

S3. Ans. (c)

Sol. Surge problem is only advantage of overhead transmission system.

S4. Ans. (a)

Sol. Since Power, P = VI cos φ , cos φ (power factor)

If cos φ will improve for a given output the value of current will decrease.

S5. Ans. (a)

Sol. electric excavators

S6. Ans. (a)

Sol. speed control

S7. Ans. (a)

Sol. BCD code is a binary code

S8. Ans. (b)

Sol. h (t) = 1/6 e^(-0.8t) sin (0.6t)

On comparing it with the standard equation,

i.e. Ke^(-ξω_n t)/√(1-ξ^2 ) sin〖(ω_d t+ Ǿ)〗

we have, ξω_n=0.8 …………………………. (i)

ω_d= ω_n √(1-ξ^2 )

= 0.6 rad/sec ……………………. (ii)

Solving both equation

ω_n=1 rad/sec and 𝞷 = 0.8

S9. Ans. (c)

Sol. speed of response

S10. Ans. (b)

Sol. real, equal and negative
