(c) back pitch

(d) none of the above




Q10. A triplex wave winding will have …….. parallel paths.

(a) 6

(b) 2

(c) 4

(d) none of the above






S1. Ans.(c)

Sol.  100 kV


S2. Ans.(b)

Sol.  A; 3 A;  = 100 – 3 × 0.2 = 99.4 V

Driving power =  = 99.4 × 3 = 298 W



S3. Ans.(c)


Sol.  P ⍺ I2



S4. Ans.(a)


Sol. Fully obeyed.



S5. Ans.(a)


Sol. As there is frequency component missing with dc current required in the other loads.




S6. Ans.(b)


Sol. The main purpose is to utilize electrical energy for comfort of mankind.



S7. Ans.(a)


Sol. When cells are arranged in parallel the current capacity increases



S8. Ans.(b)


Sol. The fringing effect results from the presence of the air gap in the magnetic circuit. The main consequence of the fringing effect is to make the magnetic flux density of the air gap different from the flux density of the core due to the path of the flux.


S9. Ans.(b)


Sol. It is the commutator pitch the determines the grouping to coils in series and parallel. In other works, it is the commutator pitch that determines as to how many parallel paths, each consisting of equal number of coils in series, will be formed. Hence, the nature of winding is determined by the Commutator pitch



S10. Ans.(a)


Sol. With an n-plex wave winding, the number of parallel paths is 2nwhere n = 2, 3 etc. and stands for duplex, triplex etc.

Hence, a triplex wave winding will have 2 × 3 = 6 parallel paths
