## SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol. The voltage drop across the switch will occurs only when it is ON.

∴V_0 (rms)=√D (V_s-V_d )

⇒V_0 (rms)=√0.4 (230-2)=√0.4 × 228 V

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol. V_o (rms) = √(0.4 )× (230 – 2) = 144.2 V

P_o = 144.22/10 = 2079.3 Watts

P_i = 2097 Watts

∴η = Po/Pi = 99.14 %.

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. For, 0≤I_0≤5

Power absorbed(P_0 )=V_0 I_0=(25-I_0^2 ) I_0

For I_0=3 A,P_01=(25-3^2 )×3=48 W

For I_0=4 A,P_01=(25-4^2 )×4=36 W

S4. Ans.(a)

Sol. In transformer, the magnetizing current I_m α V/f. If V/f is kept constant then magnetizing current will remain same and core loss depends on frequency. So, it will increase with increase in frequency.

As V/f is constant.

∴Wh α f & W(e ) α f^2

As voltage is increasing by keeping V/f ratio constant i.e., frequency also increased. Therefore, both hysteresis and eddy current losses will increase, and hence core losses will increase.

S5. Ans.(a)

Sol. If field winding gets short circuited, field excitation reduces causing rise in speed and more armature current.

S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. s^3-4s^2+s+6=0

by R-H criterion:

s^3 | 1 | 1 |

s^2 | -4 | 6 |

s^1 | ||

s^0 | 6 |

Here there is two sign changes( s^3 to s^2 and s^2 to s^1).

So, number of roots in RHS=2

∴Number of roots in LHS=3-2=1.

S7. Ans.(b)

Sol. Self-capacitance=(C1-4C2)/3=(300-(4×60))/3=60/3=20 pF

S8. Ans.(c)

Sol. g_m=-(2 IDSS)/V_p (1-VGS/Vp )

∴1 mA/V=-(2IDSS)/(-5)(1-(-3)/(-5))

⇒IDSS=(5/2)^2 mA

∴(gm )max=-(2 IDSS)/Vp =-2/(-5)×25/4=2.5 mA/V

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. Line to Earth capacitance of short transmission line is less than that in medium and long transmission line and is negligible. Because of this the charging current of short transmission line is less than that in medium and long transmission line and is negligible.

S10. Ans.(b)

Sol. In a three-phase induction motor, Tst/Tfl =(Ist/Ifl )^2 sfl

∴1.6=(12.56)^2 sfl

∴sfl=0.01 or 1%
