SOLUTIONS

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. Adding a finite value of resistor in series with 5 A source does not change the node equation at top right node, so V_0 remains same.

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Energy stored, E=Q^2/2C

So, if the total charge stored in a capacitor is doubled, then the energy stored in the capacitor will be four times its original value.

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. In a capacitor start single-phase induction motor, the capacitor is connected in series with auxiliary winding.

1-? capacitor start IM Circuit:

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. Core loss is constant in transformer irrespective of supply-side whether the rated supply voltage is applied on high voltage side or low voltage side.

No load core loss is given by: P_core = VI_0 cosϕ_0

Where V = rated no load supply voltage

I_0 = No load currents

Cosϕ_0 = no load power factor

∴No load copper loss = 1000 × 5 × 0.2 = 1000 watts

S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. Wattmeter reading in OC test: 2.5 KW= core or iron loss(P_i)

Wattmeter reading in SC test: 5 KW=copper loss or variable loss(P_cu)

VA rating=5 KVA

Power factor=cos〖ϕ=〗unity

∴η=(VI cosϕ)/(VI cosϕ+P_i+P_cu )=(5×1)/((5×1)+2.5+5)=5/12.5×100=40%

So, option (b) will be right.

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. Series resistance,

R_s=V/I_m -R_m=(100 V)/(10 mA)-5=10000-5=9995Ω

S8. Ans. (d)

Sol. F(s) = ω/(s^2+ω²)

Taking inverse Laplace:

f(t) = 〖sin ω〗t

Therefore, the final value for sinωt is equals to a value between -1 and +1.

S9. Ans.(c)

Sol. Power gain =P_o/P_i

in decibel (dB):

dB = 10 log_10(P_o/P_i )

=10 log_10〖(V_o/V_i )^2 〗

=20 log_10(V_o/V_i )

S10. Ans.(c)

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.
