(a) Less than one
(b) Greater than one
(c) Equal to zero
(d) None of the given options


S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. An IGBT is a combination of BJT and MOSFET.
IGBT is a bipolar device.
It has a high switching frequency.
Low conduction loss.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Attenuation is defined as the loss of signal strength when it travels. The steepness of a traveling wave can be reduced by either increasing the wavelength or reducing the amplitude. When the traveling wave passes through a resistor, there will be energy loss of the wave, while it travels through the resistor in the form of heat. Thus, the steepness of the traveling waves is attenuated by the resistance of the line.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Skewing is done in the rotor bar part of the induction motor to prevent cogging.
NOTE: The phenomenon of Magnetic Locking between the stator and the rotor teeth is called Cogging or Teeth Locking.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. In an R-L series circuit, the phase difference ϕ between applied voltage and circuit current will increase if X_L is increased.
Phase angle ϕ=tan^(-1)⁡(ωL/R)
Phase angle for series R-L circuit increases if…
XL is increased.
R is the decreased
frequency(f) is increased.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Q factor = (Reactive power)/(Active power)=80/√(100^2-80²)=80/60=1.33 .

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. for a generating station, the diversity factor is always > 1.
Diversity factor = ((sum of individual max demand))/((coeicident max.demand of whole system) )
