(a) 0.1 %
(b) 1%
(c) 12.56 %
(d) None of the above

Q6. The output signal of a common-collector amplifier always:
(a) Larger than the input signal
(b) In phase with the input signal
(c) Out of phase with the input signal
(d) Exactly equal to the input signal

## SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Power factor tariffs are usually applicable to industrial consumers.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Doherty tariff is also known as three-part tariff is applicable to bulk supplies and in this tariff, charges are split into three elements namely fixed charge, semi-fixed charge and a variable charge.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Tower footing resistance of a transmission tower should be as low as possible. The low value of tower footing resistance results in less voltage stresses across line insulation.
NOTE: Tower footing resistance can be reduced by using a single driven rod.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. PMMC
→ only for DC
→ Scale is uniform
→ Eddy current damping is used
→ F = BIL
→ The torque/Weight ratio is high to reduce frictional errors.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. In a three-phase induction motor, T_st/T_fl =(I_st/I_fl )^2 s_fl
∴1.6=(12.56)^2 s_fl
∴s_fl=0.01 or 1%

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The output signal of a common-collector amplifier is always in phase with the input signal.
