## SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol. ∵ H×S is constant.

∴Hnew Snew=Hold Sold⇒Hnew=(Hold Sold)/Snew =(6×250)/100=15 MJ/MVA

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol.

I(s)=1/(s(s+4))

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. Given,

∆IE=6 mA to 10 mA

∆IC=4mA to 7.80 mA

(∆IE=∆IC+∆IE )

∆IB = 2mA to 2.20 mA

β=(∆IC)/(∆IB )

=(7.80-4)/(2.20-2)=3.80/0.20

(β=19)

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. A transistor can amplify a signal only when it is operated in active region.

Active region is also called a linear region. A transistor operates in active region when emitter base junction is forward biased and collector base junction is reverse biased.

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. SC test of transformer: short circuit test gives the copper losses; these losses are taken into consideration by series parameters of the equivalent circuit. While, Open circuit test gives us iron losses; which are shown by parallel components of equivalent circuit.

Power factor(cosϕ )=R/Z=R/((R+j2πfL))⇒cos〖ϕ α 1/f〗

And I=V/Z=V/((R+j2πfL)⇒I α 1/f

So, during SC test of transformer, both power factor and magnitude of current is inversely proportional to frequency(f).

Therefore, as frequency of a transformer decreases then both power factor and current increases and vice-versa.

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. Series resistance,

Rs=V/Im -Rm=(100 V)/(10 mA)-5=10000-5=9995Ω

S7. Ans.(a)

Sol. The two instruments you will use most often to check continuity, or to measure the resistance of a circuit or circuit component, are the OHMMETER and the MEGGER (MEGOHMMETER). The ohmmeter is widely used to measure resistance and to check the continuity of electrical circuits and devices. Its range usually extends to only a few megohms. The megger is widely used for measuring insulation resistance, such as that between a wire and the outer surface of its insulation, and the insulation resistance of cables and insulators. The range of a megger can be extended to more than 1,000 megohms.

S8. Ans.(d)

Sol. Input impedance of an ideal op-amp= ꝏ

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. To eliminate n^th harmonics, nd= π.

S10. Ans.(b)

Sol. Tranformer rating=Pdc/TUF

Where, TUF= transformer utilization factor

For, full wave bridge rectifier, TUF=0.812

For, centre-tapped, TUF=0.692

∴Transformer rating= 100/0.812=123 VA(case of bridge rectifier)
