(a) 60 V
(b) 250 V
(c) 300 V
(d) 1800 V

Q6. Which type of winding is generally preferred for generating large currents on DC generators?
(a) Progressive wave winding
(b) Retrogressive wave winding
(c) Lap winding
(d) Current depends on design


S1. Ans.(c)
For HWR, I_avg=I_m/π=0.3 I_m
For FWR, I_avg=(2I_m)/π=0.6I_m
For pure DC, I_avg=I_m
For pure AC, I_avg=0

S2. Ans.(a)

Rectifier Max. Efficiency
HWR 40.6 %
FWR 81.2 %

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. A Zener diode is used as a voltage regulator.

S4. Ans.(d)


Si (silicon) 0.7 V
Ge(germanium) 0.3 V

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Emf induced per conductor=5 V
For Lap wound, number of parallel paths(A)=P=6
No. of conductor per parallel path=300/6=50
∴total emf generated by generator=50×5=250 V

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. LAP winding: large current & low voltage applications
WAVE winding: high voltage & low current applications
