Total Questions: 06
Time: 06 min.

Q1. Which motor should not be used for centrifugal pumps?
(a) Series
(b) Shunt
(c) Cumulatively compound
(d) Differentially compound

Q2. DC series motors are very suitable for heavy duty applications such as electric railways, rolling mills because of
(a) Nearly constant speed
(b) Possibility of speed control
(c) High starting torque
(d) Low initial as well as maintenance cost

Q3. Which of the following loss in a transformer is zero at all operating conditions?
(a) Iron loss
(b) Eddy current loss
(c) Hysteresis loss
(d) Friction loss

Q4. A circuit is disconnected by isolators when:
(a) Line is on full load
(b) Line is energized
(c) There is no current in the line
(d) Circuit breaker is not open

Q5. A 3-phase, 6-pole, 50 Hz induction motor has a slip of 1 % at no load and 3 % at full load. The frequency of rotor current at standstill will be:
(a) 50 Hz
(b) 100 Hz
(c) 1.5 Hz
(d) Zero

Q6. Which of the following relation is correct for current carrying capacity of fuse element?
(a) I ∝ d
(b) I² ∝ d²
(c) I² ∝ d³
(d) I² ∝ d
Where d = diameter of fuse element

SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Series motors is best suited for electric traction work because of its large starting torque characteristics.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Series motors is best suited for electric traction work because of its large starting torque characteristics. It is not suited for centrifugal pumps as in case of centrifugal pumps the starting torque is usually less than the running torque.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Transformer is a static device.
Friction losses are involved with rotating parts of a machine. Since in a transformer all parts are stationary, friction losses will always be equal to zero, irrespective of the loading condition.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Isolators operation occurs, when there is no current in the line.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. f_r=sf
At standstill condition: slip(s)=1
So, frequency of rotor current at standstill=supply frequency=50 Hz.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Heat produced per sec = Heat lost per sec (convection, conduction, radiation)
⇒ I²R = K × d × l
⇒ I²(ρl/A) = K × d × l
⇒ (I^2∝d^3 ) also called fuse law.
