S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. 3-phase synchronous machine rotor construction:
• Salient pole rotor: larger diameter, shorter axial length
• Cylindrical pole rotor: smaller diameter, larger axial length

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Two-value capacitor motor also known as capacitor start capacitor run induction motor.
In a two-value capacitor motor:
At the starting, the two capacitors are connected in parallel.
Starting capacitor is short time rated and is almost electrolytic.
The run capacitor is long time rated and is made of oil filled paper.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. For square scale: Ө α I^2
∴(I_2^2)/(I_1^2 )=Ө_2/Ө_1
⇒I_2=√(Ө_2/Ө_1 )×I_1=(45/90)^(1/2)×2=√2=1.414 A

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. JFET only works in the depletion mode, whereas MOSFETs have depletion mode and enhancement mode.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. The value of flux density in the core determines the core area.
High value of flux density gives smaller core area, so saving in iron cost. Also, small core area provides reduced mean turn of winding which gives reduction in copper cost. But
higher flux density increases iron losses resulting high temperature rise.
i.e., B_m α 1/A


S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. A negative sequence relay is commonly used to protect an alternator.
A relay which protects the electrical system from negative sequence component is called a negative sequence relay or unbalance phase relay. The negative sequence relay protects the generator(alternator) and motor from the unbalanced load which mainly occurs because of the phase-to-phase faults.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. For enhancing the power transmission in along EHV transmission line, the most preferred method is to connect a Series capacitive compensator in the line.
As we know, P α 1/X, where; X=X_L-X_C for series capacitive compensation

S10. Ans.(b)
Open loop system stability is depending only on pole locations
All poles are in LHS ⇒ system is stable.
There is one zero on right half of s-plane so system is non – minimum phase
