SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol. Fusing factor=(minimum fusing current)/(rated current)=15/10=1.5

Note: the value of fusing factor is always more then 1.

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol. PMMC instruments:

High torque to weight ratio

Sensitivity high

Less friction errors

PMMC instruments (i.e., D’Arsonval meters) are only used for measuring the Direct Current (DC) current.

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. LPF wattmeter:

Works with low pf system

Resistive loads have unity pf.so, it will give large error in such system.

S4. Ans.(d)

Sol. The no load current is the current drawn by the transformer winding when no external load is connected to the secondary of the transformer that is the secondary circuit is open. Theoretically this current should be zero. But actually, it is not zero but a small factor of the full load current.

Since no-load current lags voltage by the angle of nearly 90⁰, power factor being equal to cosine of the angle between current and voltage, it will be equal to value which is near to 0. Thus, power factor will be low.

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. T_max α V^2

According to question, voltage is reduced by 20%, i.e., V_2=0.8 V_1

∴T_(max2/T_max1 =(V_2/V_1 )^2=0.64)

So, T_max2 is reduced by 36 %.

S6. Ans.(a)

Sol. Output at full load at unity pf = 10×1 = 10kW

Input = output / η = 10 / 0.98 = 10.204 kW

Total losses (iron loss+Cu loss) = 10.204-10=0.204 Kw=204W

Iron loss = 204 – 120 = 84 W
