(a) One
(b) Two
(c) Three
(d) Four

Q9. A spring-controlled moving iron voltmeter draws a current of 1 mA for full scale value of 100V. If it draws a current of 0.5 mA, the meter reading is
(a) 200 V
(b) 100 V
(c) 50 V
(d) 25 V

Q10. A wattmeter reads 30.34 W. The absolute error in the measurement is – 2.22 W. What is the true value of power?
(a) 25.45 W
(b) 28.12 W
(c) 34.56 W
(d) 30.34 W

S1. Ans.(d)
At high load, copper loss increases as Pc α I^2 (Where; I=load current)
Due to increased copper loss, efficiency decreases.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. SC test of transformer:
Used to determine copper loss or ohmic loss
LV side short circuited
Instruments kept on HV side
Also determines equivalent resistance and leakage reactance

S3. Ans.(c)
Energy stored=[1/2 L1 i1^2+1/2 L2 i2^2+Mi1 i2 ]J
∴E=[1/2×1×4+1/2×2×2+1×2×√2]=4+2√2=2(2+√2) joules

S4. Ans.(b)
Ferranti effect occurs for medium and long transmission line.
Due to Ferranti effect, receiving end voltage is more than sending end voltage.
It occurs at light loaded or no-load condition.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. N_s=120f/P=(120×50)/4=1500 rpm
∴s=(Ns-Nr)/Ns =(1500-1200)/1500=0.2
∴Tst/Tm =2/(s+1/s)=2/(0.2+1/0.2)=2/5.2=0.384

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. characteristic’s equation=|sI-A|=0


⇒s=-1, -4

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. In a semiconductor the charge will always have a tendency to move from higher concentrated area to less concentrated area to maintain equilibrium this movement of charges will result in diffusion current.

S8. Ans. (a)
Sol. Pole at origin is one. Type of the system is determined by open loop poles at origin.

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. For moving iron instruments, deflection ⍺ I^2.
∴Reading1/(Reading 2 ) =(I1^2)/(I_2^2 )
∴100/V_2 =1^2/(0.5)^2 ⇒V2=25 V.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. True value is equal to difference between measured value and absolute error.
∴AT=30.34-(-2.22)=34.56 W.
