Q5. A 6-pole, 3-phase alternator running at 1000 rpm supplies to an 8-pole, 3-phase induction motor which has a rotor current of frequency 2 Hz. The speed at which the motor operates is

(a) 750 rpm

(b) 720 rpm

Q6. The results of a ‘slip test’ for determining direct-axis(X_d) and quadrature-axis(X_q) reactance of a star-connected, salient pole alternator is given below:

Phase values: V_max=100 V;〖 V〗_min=96 V; I_max=12 A;〖 I〗_min=10 A.

Hence the two reactances will be:

(a) X_d=8.33 Ω and X_q=9.6 Ω

(b) X_d=9.6 Ω and X_q=8.33 Ω

(c) X_d=10 Ω and X_q=8 Ω

(d) X_d=8 Ω and X_q=10 Ω

(e) X_d=8.25 Ω and X_q=9.6 Ω

**SOLUTIONS**

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. As we know. Density=mass/volume.

During expansion, mass of the matter remains constant but its volume increases and hence density decreases.

Expansion occurs in all the states of matter and having different rate of expansion.

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. The conductivity of an intrinsic semiconductor decreases with decrease in temperature and so it behaves as an insulator at 0K. The conductivity of an insulator is zero. Therefore. the electrical conductivity of an intrinsic semiconductor at 0K is equal to zero.

S3. Ans.(e)

Sol. The bulb consists of filament positioned inside a glass bulb surrounded by inert gas (combination of argon and inactive nitrogen).

S4. Ans.(d)

Sol. A fluorescent tube is filled with a gas containing low-pressure mercury vapour and argon, neon, xenon or krypton. The pressure is around 0.3 % of atmospheric pressure.

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. Supply frequency(f)=(1000×6)/120=50 Hz

Slip frequency: sf=2 (ACQ)

∴slip(s)=2/50=0.04

∴N_s=120f/P=(120×50)/8=750 rpm

∴N_r=N_s (1-s)=750×(1-0.04)=720 rpm

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. From slip test: X_d=V_max/I_min =100/10=10 Ω

And X_q=V_min/I_max =96/12=8 Ω
