(b) 0.002 A
(c) 0.004 A
(d) 0.009 A

(b) One
(c) Two
(d) Three

(c) Low resistance
(d) Mutual Inductance

Q6. The maximum efficiency of a Full-wave rectifier is …………………
(a) 40.6 %
(b) 81.2 %
(c) 50 %
(d) 25 %


S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Kando System:
In this system, single-phase 16-kV, 50 Hz supply from the sub-station is picked up by the locomotive through the single overhead contact wire. It is then converted into 3-phase ac supply at the same frequency by means of phase converter equipment carried on the locomotives. This 3-phase supply is then fed to the 3-phase induction motors.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. Merz price differential protection is used to protect the transformer from internal short circuit, Internal ground faults and inter turn shorts. Transformer is a static device. Merz price differential protection is nothing but a percentage differential protection Which works under the principle of circulating current scheme.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. given that holding current= 2 mA=0.002 A
And we know that, the value of latching current is approximately 2 to 3 times to that of holding current.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. s^3-4s^2+s+6=0

by R-H criterion:

1 1
-4 6

s^0 6
Here there is two sign changes( s^3 to s^2 and s^2 to s^1).
So, number of roots in RHS=2
∴Number of roots in LHS=3-2=1.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Schering bridge is used to measure dielectric loss. It is an AC bridge circuit that is used for measuring the insulating properties of electrical cables and equipment. It has the advantage that the balance equation is independent of frequency.
Maxwell bridge is used to measure the value of unknown inductance.
Heaviside bridge is used to measured mutual inductance in terms of a known self-inductance.
Kelvin bridge is used to measure the value of low resistance.

S6. Ans.(b)

Rectifier Max. Efficiency
HWR 40.6 %
FWR 81.2 %
