(a) 3A
(b) 4A
(c) 5A
(d) 6A


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. At the resonant frequency, the net reactance is zero because X_L=X_C. The circuit impedance Z becomes minimum and is equal to the resistance R. “Since the impedance is minimum, the current will be maximum”.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. The alternating magnetic flux produced in the conductor due to the current flowing through the neighbouring conductor gives rise to the circulating current which increases the resistance of the conductor. This phenomenon is called the proximity effect.
The proximity is more in the case of power cable and underground line where the distance between the conductor is small.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. XLPE: cross linked polyethylene cable.

S4. Ans.(c)
Francis, Kaplan and propeller turbines are reaction turbines.
Pelton wheel turbine is an impulse turbine.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Air gap power or rotor input power (P_g )=stator input power-stator loss
∴P_g=50000-800=49200 W
Rotor copper loss (P_cu )=sP_g=0.005×49200=246 W

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. According to Kirchhoff’s 1st law (KCL)
⇒I =10-7
