Consists of two statements, one labelled as ‘Statement (I)’ and the other as ‘Statement (II)’ Examine these two statements carefully and select the answers to these items using the codes given below:
(a) Both Statements (I) and ‘Statement (II)’ are individually true; and statement (II) is the correct explanation of statement (I)
(b) Both statement (I) and ‘Statement (II)’ are individually true; but statement (II) is NOT the correct explanation of statement (I)
(c) Statement (I) is true; but statement (II) is false

(b) f_c/3
(c) f_c/6
(d) f_c/8


S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. Bending in provided over to the metallic sheet in and an underground cable. Hence statement (I) is true.

The purpose of bedding is to protect the sheath from mechanical injury due to due to armoring. You can think a shock absorber and hence statement (II) is false.

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. Given data

Conductor diameter (2r = d) = 1cm

Insulation thickness (t) = 1.5 cm

Test voltage (V) = 33 kV

Hence D = 2R = 2r + 2t = d+ 2t = 4 cm

Maximum field strength is given as


S3. Ans.(c)


Bust type Specific quantities Unknown quantity
Slack bus |V|, δ P, Q
Load bus P, Q |V|, δ
Controlled bus P, |V| Q, δ

S4. Ans.(a)

Sol. Given data;

Frequency = 50Hz, poles = 4

Speed (N) = 1425 rpm, rotor resistance  = 7.8Ω

Slip due to forward field  =

∵ Rotor resistance due to backward field =` r2/2(2-Sf )`

S5. Ans.(d)


In a split phase capacitor start induction motor phase difference between currents of the main and auxiliary winding is achieved by introducing capacitive reactance in the auxiliary winding circuit. Since

S6. Ans.(b)


Node equation at the center node
V_1=2 volt
Voltage across R_2, V_R2=V_1-2=0
So, power absorbed by R_2 is zero.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Steady state error due to step input is
`e_ss=A/(1+k_p )
k_p = lim┬(s→0)⁡G(S)H(S)
Where, k_P = static position error constant
Now given,
G(S)=1/(s^2+s+2) H(S)=1/(s+1) & A=1
k_P= lim┬(S→0)⁡〖1/((s^2+s+2) )〗 1/((S+1) )`
⇒ k_p=1/2

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Steady state error (e_es ) α 1/k
So, as the gain of the system increases, steady-state error (e_es ) decrease.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Z_b=(V_b^2)/(VA)_b =(400)^2/4000=40 Ω
∴R_2=0.02 ×40=0.8 Ω
And, X_2=0.06×40=2.4 Ω
NOTE: PU quantity will be same on both side.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Johnson counter is mod 2N counter, where N=number of FF’s
∴output frequency (f_0 )=f_c/2N=f_C/(2×3)=f_c/6
