Sol. In capacitor run motor the starting winding remains connected all the times. Because the capacitor remains in the circuit all the time a lower value capacitor is used the lower value capacitor has more phase shift as compared to the high-value capacitor, therefore, winding current is low and it has high running torque and improved power factor.
Sol. A single phase induction motor consists of a single-phase winding on the stator and a cage winding on the rotor. When a single-phase supply is connected to the stator winding, a pulsating magnetic field is produced. Therefore, a single-phase induction motor is not self-starting and requires some particular starting means.
Sol. Complex power is S= P+JQ, where Q is negative for lagging power factor and positive for leading power factor.
Q=V_rms I_rms sinϕ
= 2×1×sin 60⁰
But here current is lagging behind voltage by 60⁰. So, Q will be negative. i.e. -j√3.
Sol. (in case of transformer,we know∶→)/((VI)input=(VI)output)
For auto-transformer a = 2000/200=10
Sol. P=V^2/R or V=√(PR.) Since voltage is same in a parallel circuit, P_1 R_1=P_2 R_2 or 9×8 = P_2×12
Sol. C_eq=(4×12×8)/(4×12+12×8+4×8) = 2.18 μ F
Sol. There are 3 types of speed control for dc drives: –
(I.) Armature voltage control
(ii) Field flux control
(iii) Armature resistance control
Armature voltage control technique gives high efficiency but below base speed.
So, above base speed, Field flux control is used, where by weakening the field, speed above base speed can be achieved because these two are inversely proportional to each other.
Sol. In case of rectangular and symmetrical square wave, r.m.s. value is equal to the average value. In case of all other a.c waves, r.m.s. value is greater than the average value.
Sol. With positive feedback, system gain reduces.
The topmost wire in distribution systems is Earth wire.
Earth wire is used for protection against lightning.
Sol. In a transformer the voltage regulation will be zero when it operates at leading pf.
+ → for lagging
– → for leading
Maximum regulation at lagging pf
Minimum or zero or negative regulation at leading pf
