(b) √2π/2
(c) 2/√2π
(d) (2√2)/π

Q8. The current in the circuit follows the relation i=200 sin⁡ωt. If frequency is 50 Hz, how long will it take for the current to rise to 100A?
(a) 2.89 ms
(b) 1.66 ms
(c) 6.84 ms
(d) 1.96 ms

Q9. The power of single-phase AC circuit is given by

(b) VI cos Ǿ
(c) VI sin Ǿ
(d) None of these

Q10. Which of the following distribution system is used for combined power and lighting load?
(a) single phase 2-wire AC system
(b) Three phase 3-wire AC system
(c) Three phase 4-wire AC system
(d) None of these

Solutions
S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. a pure inductor and a pure capacitor connected in parallel

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. Q= 1/R √(L/C)

S3. Ans. (a)
Sol. half wave and odd function symmetry

S4. Ans. (a)
Sol. Reduction in transmission losses

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. Draws leading power and supply lagging power

S6. Ans. (c)
Sol. Ferroelectric material

S7. Ans. (d)
Sol. (2√2)/π ; For sinusoidal waveform,I_av=I_m/(π/2)=〖2I〗_m/π
I_rms=I_m/√2
So, I_av/I_rms =(2√2)/π

S8. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given, i=200 sin⁡ωt
Time to reach 100 A. Putting i=100 A
100=200 sin⁡ωt
1/2=sin⁡ωt
ωt=π/6
t=1.66 ms

S9. Ans. (b)
Sol. VI cos Ǿ

S10. Ans. (c)
Sol. Three phase 4-wire AC system
