(c) inversely proportion to voltage
(d) none of the above

Q10. For satisfactory performance of 3-phase 480V, 60 Hz induction motor, the supply voltage at 50 Hz should be equal to
(a)480 V
(b)350 V
(c)400 V

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Nodal analysis at point a: (Va-1)/2+Va/2-3=0

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. rotor power output of 3 phase I/M=P_g-P_cu
Where, Pg=air gap power and Pcu=rotor cu loss=sPg
According to question: Pg-Pcu=15
⇒Pg=15/(1-s)=15/(1-0.04)=15.625 KW
∴Rotor ohmic loss= sPg=0.04×15.625=0.625 KW=625 W

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Reading of Centre-zero PMMC =IDC=5
Reading of moving iron=Irms=√(5^2+〖(14.14/1.414)〗^2 )=√125

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. capacitor-run type motor will have high power factor in which capacitor will be connected in running condition.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. In house wiring, Black and Green wires indicate neutral and earth respectively.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Commutator acts as a reversing switch.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Speed can be adjusted for an induction motor while it cannot be altered for a synchronous motor operating at normal speed. Synchronous motor rotates at synchronous speed.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. An over-excited synchronous motor has a leading power factor. This makes it useful for power factor correction of industrial loads.
Induction motor is a singly excited machine and it always needs exciting current to set up the flux in the machine.

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. Torque in induction motor varies as square of the voltage.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. For satisfactory performance, the V / f ratio must be constant.
