Solution

Sol.1 Ans (c)
A current source with impedance in parallel.

Sol.2 Ans (b)
A shunt is normally a very low value of resistance, connected in parallel with the ammeter coil. In a shunt, the potential terminals have a low current carrying capacity. As a result, a low range ammeter is used to measure the large current.

Sol.3 Ans (a)
RC=LG, For distortion less line.

Sol.4 Ans (d)

Response Damping Factor
Undamped 0
Under damped <1
Critical damped 1
Over Damped >1

Sol.5 Ans (a)
By the use of Lead- Lag compensator the desired output results can be obtained with improvement in steady state as well as transient response of the system.

Sol.6 Ans (d)
Commutator serve as mechanical inverter for DC Motor.

Sol.7 Ans (a)
The Differential Compound type of dc generator used to electric arc welding.

Sol.8 Ans (c)
Wound type and Bar type are used as indoor transformer due to low voltage rating.

Sol.9 Ans (d)
In a low power factor dynamometer type wattmeter, pressure coil has a resistance value that is one tenth of the actual with respect to unity power wattmeter. This is done in order to ensure a reasonable amount of torque at low power factors.

Sol.10 Ans (d)
When transformation ratio for voltage is small.
