## SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. At steady state iL (0^– )=10/10=1 A

∴iL (0^–) = iL (0^+) = 1 Amp

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. Multiplying power of shunt, m=Rm/Rsh +1=1.8/0.2+1=10

Therefore, the range of ammeter increases 10 times. When the ammeter indicates 3 A, the circuit current = 3 ×10 = 30 A.

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol. For RLC series circuit, condition for critical damping:

(R/2L)^2=1/LC⇒R^2=4L/C

In an RLC series circuit, for critically damped:〖 R〗^2=4L/C

C=4L/R^2 =(2×4)/100=0.08 F

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. ACQ: there are 3 generator buses and slack bus is not included in it. i.e., one slack is present apart from this.

∴ Size of Jacobian matrix=(2n-m-2)×(2n-m-2)

=(2×12-3-2)×(2×12-3-2)=19×19.

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. Since, Av = β×Rc/Rin = 10 × 2/1 = 20

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. in a 3-phase 180⁰ mode VSI: (V_L )_RMS=√(2/3) V_S=√(2/3) ×500=408.24 V≃408 V

S7. Ans.(a)

Sol. Reciprocal condition in Y-parameter: Y12=Y21

Here, Y12=-1/2 and Y21=1/2

So, Y12≠Y21

Hence, the given network is non-reciprocal and active networks are non-reciprocal.

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol. Using star-delta starter: Tst=1/3×(DOL)=1/3×600=200 Nm

S9. Ans.(b)

Sol. L {u (t – a)} = ∫_0^∞▒e^(-st) u(t-a)dt = e^(-as)/s

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. Resolution = 10.23/(2^10-1)= 10 mV
