Q10. A d.c. motor runs at 1810 r.p.m. at full-load and 1865 r.p.m. at no-load. The speed regulation is ………
(a) 1.06%
(b) 3.03%
(c) 6.05%
(d) 5.08%

Solution

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. Pauli’s exclusion principle

S2. Ans. (d)
Sol. V=200 V rms,P=1200 W,Q=1600 VAR
S=√(1200^2+1600^2 )=2000 VA and Cos ∅=P/s=1200/2000=0.6
I=S/V=2000/200=10 A

S3. Ans. (d)
Sol. Torque/weight ratio of an instrument indicates sensitivity.

S4. Ans. (a)
Sol. Decibel scale is useful while measuring voltages covering wide frequency ratio.

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. instantaneously; Ideal voltage has zero internal resistance.
So, time constant τ=RC=0, Hance capacitor will charge instantaneously.

S6. Ans. (b)
Sol. Silica Gel

S7. Ans. (a)
Sol. Horn Gap

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. For the Transfer function (V_2 (s))/(V_1 (s))=10s/(S^2+10s+100) when
s→0 (V_2 (s))/(V_1 (s))=0 and s→∞ (V_2 (s))/(V_1 (s))=0 But in between 0<s<∞ (V_2 (s))/(V_1 (s))≠0

S9. Ans. (a)
Sol. In phase with each other.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Speed regulation = (N_0 -N_FL)/N_FL ×100=(1865-1810)/1810×100 = 3.03%
