Sol. synchronous motor is not self-starting.
Sol. A α 1/Bm
So, The size of a synchronous motor decreases with the increase in flux density.
Sol. Electrical motor efficiency is defined that the ratio of mechanical power developed to the total electrical power input.
So, efficiency = EbIa/VIL.
Hence, the Eb/V ratio of a DC motor is an indication of its efficiency.
Sol. The yoke of small DC machine is made up of cast iron.
Sol. The voltage coil of a single-phase house service energy meter is highly inductive.
Sol. Q = W / V = 660J / 110V = 6C
Sol. Maximum torque in an induction motor, T_MAX ∝1/2X.
the maximum torque is independent of rotor resistance and is inversely proportional to rotor reactance. So, if we increase the rotor resistance the maximum torque will be unaltered.
Sol. Ferranti effect occurs in case of no load or light load condition of a medium and long transmission lines due to capacitance effect of the transmission line.
Shunt reactor will reduce the effect of capacitance. Therefore, Ferranti effect will be reduced.
Sol. furnaces used for cremation purpose uses Resistance heating.
Sol. In an electric heater, the metal case is connected to ‘earth wire’ for protection against fault.
