(d) start and then stop


Q8. The power measured by ammeter-Voltmeter method, if the voltmeter is connected across the load then the value of power will be

  • The power consumed by the load
  • The sum of power consumed by the load and the ammeter
  • The sum of power consumed by the load and the voltmeter
  • The sum of power consumed by the load, ammeter and voltmeter



Q9. For the same power the size of turbine

  • Increase with speed
  • Remains with speed
  • Decrease with speed
  • None of the above


Q10. Steam turbines are governed by

  • Nozzle control governing
  • Throttle governing
  • Bypass governing
  • All of the above




S1 (c)

Capacitor start method is most economical method.

S2. (b)

∵ Efficiency is 80 %

∴ Power output = .80×800 Wats =640 W

S3. (a)

High resistance

S4. (b)

Here, two poles are at origin. So, system is unstable.


S5. (c)

The given description forms a wheat stone bridge in balanced form.

∴   between A and C


∴ Total power =  W

S6. (a)

Lat internal resistance of call is r ohm.

0.9 (r+2) =0.3 (r+7)

S7. (b)

Motor will not start.

S8 (c)

The sum of power consumed by the load and the voltmeter


S9 (c)

Decrease with the speed.

S10 (d)
