(b) 14.14 A
(c) 10 A
(d) 5 A

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.
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
