(b) 50 V
(c) 70.7 V
(d) 35.35 V

(a) Base-emitter
(b) Collector-emitter
(c) Base-collector
(d) Collector-base


S1. Ans.(a)
As speed is always constant. So, back emf depends on the excitation given to the field winding.
I.e., Eb α ϕ.

S2. Ans.(b)
Approximate value of efficiency=(rotor gross output(Pm))/(rotor input(P2))=(1-s)=Nr/Ns
So, lower the value of slip, higher will be efficiency.

S3. Ans.(c)
Ns=120f/P=(120×50)/8=750 rpm
Speed of 7^th harmonic=Ns/7=750/7=107.14 rpm
And, for7^th harmonic=7×120^0=840^0=840-360-360=+120⁰(i.e.forward direction)

S4. Ans.(d)
The value of the capacitor in a capacitor starts motor controls the starting torque.
Reduction in capacitance of a capacitor start motor will result in reduction of starting voltage and hence starting torque will reduce.

S5. Ans.(c)
Kelvin’s law states that most economic area of conductor is that for which the variable part of annual charge is equal to the cost of energy losses.

S6. Ans.(a)
Power cables are mainly used for power transmission and distribution up to line length of 10 Km.

S7. Ans.(a)
Voltmeter has very high resistance to ensure that its connection do not alter flow of current in the circuit. Now if it is connected in series then no current will be there in the circuit due to its high resistance. Hence it is connected in parallel to the load across which potential difference is to be measured.

S8. Ans.(b)
In terms of filtering property, lead compensator acts as high pass filter.

S9. Ans.(b)
For half wave rectification, RMS value will be Vmaximum/2=50 V

S10. Ans.(c)
if base -emitter junction (BEJ) is forward biased, then in order to have proper operation of a transistor as an amplifier, base collector junction (BCJ) must be reverse biased.
