(c) Xd=10 Ω and Xq=8 Ω
(d) Xd=8 Ω and Xq=10 Ω

(c) I_a^2
(d) I_a

Q10. Fusing factor of fuse is always
(a) More than 1
(b) Less than 1
(c) Infinity
(d) Zero


S1. Ans.(a)
Using source transformation (i.e., voltage source to current source transformation)
Isc=Voc/Ri =150/75=2 A
So, given circuit is equivalent to a current source of 2 A in parallel with 75 Ω.

S2. Ans.(c)
Capacitor resists a sudden change in the voltage.

S3. Ans.(d)
When temperature being measured is high and there is no physical contact with the process to be measured, the thermal radiation methods like optical pyrometer are used.

S4. Ans.(b)

Brake test is also known as direct method of testing of dc machines.
It is suitable for small dc machines.

S5. Ans.(c)
From slip test: X_d=V_max/I_min =100/10=10 Ω
And X_q=V_min/I_max =96/12=8 Ω

S6. Ans.(d)
Inertia constant(H)=(stored KE in MJ at synchronous speed)/(machine rating in MVA)
∴Stored energy=4×100=400 MJ

S7. Ans.(d)
Number of bus(n)=15
Voltage controlled bus(m)=3
∴size of Jacobian matrix=(2n-m-2)×(2n-m-2)=25×25


S9. Ans.(d)
We know Torque Tα ΦIa, As the motor is operating under saturation condition so torque will be independent of flux i.e., T α Ia.

S10. Ans.(a)
Fusing factor=(minimum fusing current)/(current rating of fuse)
Fusing factor of fuse is always >1.
