(a) 50 %
(b) 62.3 %
(c) 70.7 %

(b) (s+a)/((S+a)^2+ω^2 )
(c) s/((S+a)^2+ω^2 )
(d) 1/((S+a)^2+ω^2 )


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. The string efficiency is independent of transmission system frequency.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. P_m=V^2/X
As series reactance unchanged,
∴P_max α V^2
∴P2=P1×(V2/V1 )^2=P×(100/200)^2=P/4

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Oscillators use positive feedback.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. A PMMC instruments has linear scale whereas moving iron instrument has non-linear /non-uniform scale.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given that, Z=4-j3=R_L-jXC;RL=4 Ω and IL=5cos (100πt +100) A
∴P=1/2 Im^2 RL=1/2×25×4=50 W

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. Ward-Leonard controlled dc drives are generally used for “Heavy duty excavators.
Ward-Leonard control is basically a voltage control method, in which motor (drives) is controlled with the help of the field current of generator its output voltage can be controlled thus DC drives.

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol. N_s=120f/P=(120×50)/4=1500 rpm
∴efficiency(η)=(1-s)=N_r/N_s =1470/1500×100=98 %

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. rotor power input= air gap power=(3I^2 R2)/s
Rotor copper loss=3I^2 R2
∴SLIP(s)=(3I^2 R2)/((3I^2 R2)/s)=(Rotor copper loss)/(rotor power input)

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. η=√(P_I/P_cufl )=√(400/800) ×100=70.7 %

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. cos ωt (→LT ) s/(S^2+ω^2 )
e^(-at) cosωt (→LT ) ((s+a))/((s+a)^2+ω^2 )
