(b) 0.25 W
(c) 0.5 W
(d) 1 W

(b) quality factor
(c) mid-frequency
(d) bandwidth

Q10. In a 2-pole lap winding dc machine, the resistance of one conductor is 2Ω and total number of conductors is 100. Find the total resistance
(a) 50 Ω
(b) 100 Ω
(c) 200 Ω
(d) 10 Ω


S1. Ans.(b)
At 20% overload current (i.e.,I=1.2I_fl) copper loss=144 W
As copper loss(Pcu ) α I^2
∴Copper loss at full-load, Pcu(fl) =144/(1.2)^2 =100 W
Core loss or constant loss=64 W
Load at which efficiency is maximum,
∴ηmax=rated KVA×√(Pi/Pcu(fl) )=rated KVA×√(64/100)=0.8×rated KVA
∴At 80% load, efficiency is maximum.

S2. Ans.(c)
For maximum efficiency, copper loss or variable loss=core or iron loss
i.e., Pcu=Pi=450 W

S3. Ans.(a)
ACSR (Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced) Conductors
Center of the conductors comprised galvanized steel and outer layers of the galvanized steel comprise Aluminum conductors. These types of conductors are much use for long spans of transmission lines because these lines got high tensile strength.

S4. Ans.(a)
During the no-load condition, the current flowing is only charging current due to line capacitance.

S5. Ans.(d)
Field effect transistor (FET):
It is unipolar device.
It is voltage-controlled device.

S6. Ans.(a)
Field effect transistor (FET):
It is unipolar device.
It is voltage-controlled device.

S7. Ans.(b)

For FWR: Idc=(2Im)/π
For HWR: Idc=Im/π

S8. Ans.(a)
The average power dissipated by an inductor is zero.

S9. Ans.(d)
Half power frequencies are the frequencies (ω1,ω2) at which power dissipated is one half of the power dissipated at resonate frequency(wo).
The bandwidth (BW) is defined as the frequency band between half power frequencies;

S10. Ans.(a)


X = Resistance of one conductor =2 Ω
Z = Total number of conductors=100
A = No of parallel paths=2(For lap winding A=P)
∴RT=(2×100)/2^2 =50 Ω
Total resistance depends upon no of parallel path. In lap winding parallel path is no of poles and here it is two. Half of conductor are in series i.e., 50 in series and rest of 50 in series and they are parallel together. 50 no 2Ω in series = 100Ω. When two such paths are parallel, their equivalent will be 50 Ω.
