Power factor, pf = 0.8 (leading)
Rms voltage, V_rms= 200 V
What is the total impedance of the circuit?
(a) 32 – j24Ω
(b) 25.6 + j19.2 Ω
(c) 25.6 – j19.2 Ω
(d) 32 + j24Ω

Q5. Two capacitance, C1 = 150 ± 2.4µF and C2 = 120 ± 1.5 µF are connected in parallel. What is the limiting error of the resultant capacitance C (in µF)?
(a) 0.9 µF
(b) 2.4 µF
(c) 1.5 µF
(d) 3.9 µF


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. A single phase, full-wave, fully controlled bridge converter for supplying high inductive load: V_avg=(2V_m)/π cos⁡α
And V_rms=V_m/√2

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Swinburne’s test is the most commonly used and simplest method of testing of shunt and compound wound DC machines which have constant flux.
In this method of testing no load losses are measured separately and eventually we can determine the efficiency.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Equivalent capacitance of the given parallel combination is C = C1 + C2. So, limiting error of C is (2.4 + 1.5) = 3.9 µF
