b) capacitor
c) variable inductor
d) any of the mentioned


Q9. Separately excited dc generators are used in

S1. (d)
Equivalent e.m.f. = E + E + E + E + E+ E – E – E=4E
Internal resistance = r+ r + r + r + r + r +r + r = 8r

S2. (c)
Full-scale voltage across meter = IR=10 mA×60 Ω=0.6 V. When circuit current is 100 mA, current through shunt = 100 – 10 = 90 mA.
∴ S=(0.6 V)/(90 mA)=6.67 Ω
S3. (a)
P=V^2/R or V=√(PR.) Since voltage is same in a parallel circuit, P_1 R_1=P_2 R_2 or 6×15 = P_2×9
∴P_2=10 W

S4. (b)
The capacitance is minimum when the three capacitors are connected in series and maximum when connected in parallel. i.e. 4 μ F and 36 μ F.

S5. (d)
Sol. The power factor angle is, tan (φ)=pu resistive drop/pu reactive drop
= 4/4= 1
tan^(-1)⁡1= 45°
S6. (c)
Sol. The current in armature, Ia = 255-250/0.25 = 20 A
Power = Eb*Ia = 250*20 = 5000 W
S7. (a)
Sol. The components to be used in aircrafts are made to operate at very high frequencies so that the size of the components to be used is reduced.
S8. (b)
Sol. In the mentioned condition the generator will correspondence as capacitor.
S9. (a)
Sol. Separately excited dc generators are used in Ward Leonard system of speed control.

S10. (a)
Sol. Commutation is the process which reduces the induced emf and so the torque.
