(b) Earth conductor
(c) Wave trap
(d) none of the above

Q7. When transmission voltage is increased, the line losses are
(a) decreased
(b) increased
(c) same
(d) none of the above

Q8. The feeder is designed mainly from the point of view of
(a) its current carrying capacity
(b) voltage drop in it
(c) operating voltage
(d) operating frequency

Q9. What should be the main characteristic of the null detector in a bridge measurement?
(a) accuracy
(b) precision
(c) Sensitivity
(d) Resolution

Q10. The dielectric loss of capacitor can be measured by which of the following?
(a) Wien bridge
(b) Owen bridge
(c) Shearing bridge
(d) Maxwell bridge


S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. V_m=√2×V_(r.m.s.)=√2×500 volts ;I_m=V_m/R=(√2×500)/(10×10^3 ) A
Now, i=I_m sinθ=(√2×500)/(10×10^3 ) sin35°=40.6×10^(-3) A=40.6 mA

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. The average power dissipated by an inductor is zero.

S3. Ans. (d)
Sol. Two and zero

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. stabilization becomes difficult

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Eddy current

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Wave Trap

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. P = √3 VI cosϕ or
I=P/(√3 V cos⁡ϕ )
As transmission voltage V increases, the line current I and hence line losses are decreased

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. A feeder is a conductor that connects the substation (or localized generator) to the area where power is to be distributed. Generally, no tapings are taken from the feeder. The feeder must carry the required current safely so that is designed form point of view of current carrying capacity.

S9. Ans. (d)
Sol. Resolution should be the main characteristic.

S10. Ans. (c)
Sol. Shearing bridge
