SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. Eg=zϕNP/60A

Where, A=number of parallel paths=2 (for wave winding)

And Z= 2×32×6=384

∴Eg=zϕNP/60A=(384×0.06×250×8)/(60×2)=384 V

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. For 200 W/220V incandescent lamp, R=V^2/P=220^2/200=242 Ω

And for 100 W/220V incandescent lamp, R_t=V^2/P=220^2/100=484 Ω

According to question, for series connection: R_t=n×R

⇒484=n×242

∴n=2

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. The surge impedance is independent of the length of the transmission line. Hence it will be same as before i.e. 300Ω.

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. In a dynamometer type wattmeter, the pressure coil connected across the load terminal is highly Resistive.

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. Because of the inductance, the current of the pressure coils lags behind the voltage. Thus, the power factor of the wattmeter becomes lagging, and the meter reads high reading and vice-versa.

S6. Ans.(a)

Sol. One unit of electrical energy equals 1KWH.

S7. Ans.(d)

Sol. For maximum power output, the back emf is equal to half of the applied voltage.

Hence, Eb = V/2 = 230/2 ⇒115 V. where V is the terminal voltage.

Q8. Ans.(d)

Sol.

(VS )^2=(VR )^2+(VC )^2

(50)^2+(40)^2+(VC )^2

⇒ VC = √(2500-1600)

= 30 V

Q9. Ans.(d)

Sol. In case of series Resonance, X_L = X_C and Total impedance (z) = √(R^2+(XL-XC )^2 )

= √((R)^2+(0)^2 )

⇒ ▭(Z=R )

and Power factor (cosϕ) = R/Z=R/R=1

So, in series Resonance,

Z = Z(min )=R

pf = unity,

S10. Ans.(d)

Sol. The efficiency of two identical transformers under loading can be determined by back to back test.
