Sol. ACQ: N_1/N_2 =1/5
So, equivalent resistance refereed to primary side=R2/K^2 =500/(5)^2 =20 Ω.
Sol. V2/V1 =N2/N1
Sol. The basic function of a transformer is to change the level of the voltage.
Sol. Shunt conductance in the power transmission is due to Leakage over the insulator.
Shunt conductance is due to leakage currents flowing across insulators and air.
For transmission line modelling, shunt conductance is not considered due to smaller value.
Sol. The gang capacitor is a variable capacitor in which capacitance is varied by changing the plate area.
Gang capacitors are variable capacitors. The ganged capacitor shown above is a combination of two capacitors connected together.
Sol. Dynamometer Type
Sol. Under steady-state conditions, the inductor is replaced by short-circuited. Therefore, a 1 Ω resistor that is connected parallel to the inductor is neglected.
Hence total resistance of the circuit will be:
R_T = 1Ω || 1Ω =0.5 Ω
Therefore, current drawn by the 5 V source is
∴I = V/R = 5/0.5
⇒I = 10 A
S8. Ans. (d)
Sol. F(s) = ω/(s^2+ω²)
Taking inverse Laplace:
f(t) = sin ωt
Therefore, the final value for sinωt is equals to a value between -1 and +1.
Power gain =Po/Pi
in decibel (dB):
dB = 10 log10(Po/Pi )
=10 log10(Vo/Vi )^2
=20 log10(Vo/Vi )
Sol. Effects of Negative feedback:
In negative feedback, the feedback energy (voltage or current), is out of phase with the input signal and thus opposes it.
Negative feedback reduces gain of the amplifier. It also reduces distortion, noise and instability.
This feedback increases bandwidth and improves input and output impedances.
