SOLUTIONS**S1. Ans.(d)Sol. **The distance b/w equalizer ring(D)=2C/P

**S2. Ans.(c)Sol. **If excitation increases for given condition, then Power factor becomes leading.

**S3. Ans.(b)Sol. **The path of arc current is highly resistive. So, the arc voltage produced in the CB is always in phase of arc current.

**S4. Ans.(c)Sol. **As given frequency is greater than resonant frequency. So, nature will be capacitive for parallel RLC circuit.

**S5. Ans.(c)Sol.** η=√(Pc/Pcufl )=√(400/800) ×100=70.7 %

**S6. Ans.(b)Sol.** Inductance of a line.

L = 2×10-7 ln[GMD/GMR] H/m/phase

and. GMR α Radius of the conductor

If radius increases then GMR will increase and inductance will decrease.

**S7. Ans.(b)Sol.** Surge impedance loading: SIL=(KV)^2/Z_0 MW

i.e., SIL α V^2

Where; Z0=√(L/C)

SIL is independent of length of line.

SIL can be increased by increasing voltage level and vice-versa.

**S8. Ans.(b)Sol.** If the motor is started with star connection the phase voltage gets divided by √3 times i.e. (phase voltage = line voltage /√3). Since the voltage is reduced, the starting current is also reduced.

**S9. Ans.(d)Sol. **For HWR, I_rms=I_m/2=10/2=5 A

**S10. Ans.(b)Sol. **Required ratio=1-1/n

Where; n=transformation ratio

∴ Required ratio=1-1/n=1-1/3=2/3
