S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. In moving iron instrument the damping which is used is Air friction damping, by a vane moving in a sector shaped chamber.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. V(t) = 120 cos (3t + 120° – 90°); V(t) = 120 cos (3t + 30°)
I(t) = 20 cos (3t – 60°)
∴Z = j6 Ω, ωL = 6, 3×L=6 i.e. L=2 H

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Eddy current loss in a transformer is fixed, and it depends on the core material’s magnetic properties. Eddy current loss is given as:

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Inter turn stator winding fault can easily be detected by stator differential protection or stator earth fault protection. Hence, it is not very essential to provide special protection scheme for inter turn faults occurred in stator winding. This type of faults is generated if the insulation between conductor (with distinct potentials) in the same slot is punctured. This type of fault rapidly changes to earth fault.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Negative sequence currents gives rise to another rotating magnetic field in the generator in opposite direction which leads to excessive copper loss and pulsation in electromagnetic torque, which causes mechanical stress on the shaft of the alternator. So negative sequence relay is commonly used to protect alternator.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Since voltage across L is equal to voltage across C, it is a case of series resonance.
∴ Supply voltage = Voltage across R = 100 V

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. In a parallel a. c. circuit, if the supply frequency is less than the resonant frequency, then the circuit is inductive

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. In a semiconductor the charge will always have a tendency to move from higher concentrated area to less concentrated area to maintain equilibrium this movement of charges will result in diffusion current.

S9. Ans. (a)
Sol. Pole at origin is one. Type of the system is determined by open loop poles at origin.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Address bus is used to choose a particular location in the memory chip. Data bus is used to provide data to and from the chip. Chip select signals are used to select a particular chip within the memory.
