Sol 1.(c)
Series motor as the AC series motors are also known as the modified DC series motor.
Sol 2.(d)
A vacuum cleaner employs Single phase series motor.
Sol 3.(a)
Because of its High starting torque
Sol 4.(c)
Equal and opposite torque in the rotor conductors
Sol 5.(a)
It is 30°.
Sol 6.(a)
Synchronous motor is not self-starting.
Sol 7.(b)
Two fields, rotating at synchronous speed in opposite directions
Sol 8.(d)
Sf= s
= 1+1-s
=2-s ( As N/Ns = 1-s )
Sol 9.(b)
P = 8
Ns = (120×50)/8 = 750 rpm
Sf = (Ns-N)/Ns
Sf = (750-690)/750
= .08
Sb = 2-Sf = 1.92
Sol 10.(c)
