**SOLUTIONS****S1. Ans.(d)Sol.** Eddy current loss (Pe ) α ke Bm^2 f^2

And we know, Bm α v/f

If Bm=constant, then eddy current loss (Pe ) αf^2

If Bm is not constant, then eddy current loss (Pe ) α v^2

**S2. Ans.(b)Sol. **Step angle(β)=((Ns-Nr)/(Ns×Nr ))×360^0=((6-4)/(6×4))×360^0=30⁰

**S3. Ans.(c)Sol. **Eddy current loss (P_e ) α ke Bm^2 f^2

And we know, Bm α v/f

If Bm=constant, then eddy current loss (Pe ) αf^2

If Bm is not constant, then eddy current loss (Pe ) α v^2

**S4. Ans.(b)Sol. **Y = 0.1 S

G = 0.08 S

∴ P.F. =G/Y=0.08/0.1=0.8

**S5. Ans.(b)Sol. **The speed of a synchronous motor is constant (= synchronous speed, N_s) from no-load to full-load. Therefore, speed regulation of a synchronous motor is always zero.

**S6. Ans.(a)Sol. **it is a balanced wheat stone bridge.

**S7. Ans.(a)Sol.** At higher voltage, volume of conductor is reduced. Area of conductor A ∝ 1/Vs² Where Vs = Supply voltage So that material requirement is reduced and hence cost of the material and transmission is reduced.

**S8. Ans.(d)Sol.** When electrical circuit being tested is open, torque due to voltage coil will be maximum and pointer shows ‘infinity’ means no shorting throughout the circuit and has maximum resistance within the circuit under test.

**S9. Ans.(a)Sol. **In PMMC instruments, damping torque is provided by eddy currents.

**S10. Ans.(c)Sol.** undamped: ξ =0

Underdamped: 0 < ξ < 1 Critically damped: ξ = 1 Overdamped: ξ > 1
