SOLUTIONS
S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. It is current (rms) that a circuit breaker is capable of breaking at given recovery voltage and under specified conditions.
Breaking capacity = √3 × service voltage × rated symmetrical current

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. the insulating materials used in cables should have the following properties:
High insulation resistance to avoid leakage current.
High dielectric strength to avoid electrical breakdown of the cable.
High mechanical strength to withstand the mechanical handling of cables.
Non-hygroscopic i.e., it should not absorb moisture from air or soil.
Non-inflammable.
Low cost so as to make the underground system a viable proposition.
Unaffected by acids and alkalis to avoid any chemical action

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. The maximum power transfer theorem states that in a linear, bilateral DC network, maximum power is delivered to the load when the load resistance is equal to the internal resistance of a source.
If it is an independent voltage source, then its series resistance (internal resistance Rs) or if it is independent current source, then its parallel resistance (internal resistance Rs) must equal to the load resistance RL to deliver maximum power to the load.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Least at the centre of poles and increases while moving away from the centre.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Hopkinson’s test for DC motor is conducted with full load.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Tellegen’s theory is based on conservation of energy.
ie.∑_(K=1)^n▒〖P_k=0 〗
ie,∑_(K=1)^n▒〖I_k×V_K=0 〗
Tellegen’s Theorem states that the summation of power delivered is zero for each branch of any electrical network at any instant of time.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. ▭(θ_ele= P/2×θ_mech )
= (6/2)×6
= 18° electrical

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. so, for over compound full load terminal voltage will be more than No-load voltage.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Slots per pole =8/4=2
Angular slot pitch = (180°)/(slots per pole )
=(180°)/2
=90° (electrical)

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. In moving Iron type meter, θ ∝ (〖I_rms〗^2)
