SOLUTIONS
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Reserve capacity = Plant capacity – Max. Demand
If the plant capacity is equal to Max. Demand then the Reserve capacity will be zero.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. under steady state condition, capacitor behaves as open circuit. So, source voltage will appear across the capacitor.
So, voltage across capacitor during steady state= 12 V

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. given circuit is a balanced bridge.
So, RAB=(20+10)‖ |(30+15)=(30×45)/75=18 Ω

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. V=Vm sin⁡(2πft)=230×√2 sin⁡(2×3.14×50 t)=325 sin⁡(314.16 t)

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Schering bridge is used for measurement of dielectric loss of capacitor.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. In concentric arrangement of placing of HV and LV winding, less insulation is required when LV winding is placed near the core which is at ground potential. The HV winding is placed around the LV.
If high voltage winding is placed near the core, the more insulation will be required and the more insulation lead to increase in the size and cost of the transformer.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. The emf induced in the dc generator armature winding is AC, but we need DC current from DC generator, so to convert this AC current to DC current mechanical rectifier called as commutator is used.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. In DC machines, Number of coils = Number of commutator segments.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Relay used for different configuration of transmission lines……
Short transmission line: reactance relay
Medium transmission line: impedance relay
Long transmission line: mho relay

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. The earthing electrode should be situated at a place at least 1.5 meters away from the building whose installation system is being earthed
The earthing electrode should always be placed in a vertical position inside the earth or pit so that it may be in contact with all the different earth layers.
