## SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. The no-load current drawn by a transformer is usually (2-5) % of the full-load
current.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Distributor: A distributor is a conductor from which tapping are taken for supply to the consumers. The current through a distributor is not constant because tapping are taken at various places along its length.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. A mercury vapour lamp producing greenish-blue colour of light.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Merz price protection is used for the protection of both alternators and transformers.
• Merz price differential protection is used to protect the transformer from internal short circuit, Internal ground faults and inter turn shorts.
• For alternator, the most severe outcome of fault is the damage of stator. For this, the differential protection of alternator or Merz price circulating current protection system is used which protects alternators stator from burning through at least 80% if it.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Φ = BA = Weber*m2/m2 = Weber

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. 1 pole pitch=180⁰ electrical
