(a) Increase
(b) Decrease
(c) Remains unchanged
(d) Can’t say

SOLUTIONS
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. We know that Resistance (R) = δ l/A
due to lamination, effective cross – section area (A) of each layer reduces and resistance increases and losses minimise.
To minimize the eddy current loss, we increase the resistance in the path of eddy current by laminating it,
Eddy current losses are directly proportional to the area of armature.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. E = ZϕNP/60A
P = no. of poles
and A = no. of parallel path
for lap winding, A = P
So, by increasing pole number, parallel path will be equal to no. of poles and generated emf will remains unchanged.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol.
EMF method or pessimistic method because gives VR higher than actual.
MMF method or optimistic method because VR lower than actual.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given that, P = 40 W
pf = cos ϕ = 0.8
⇒ VA = 40/0.8=50 W
Q = VA sin ϕ
= 50 √(1-(0.8)^2 )
= 50 √0.36
= 50 × 0.6=30 VAR.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Higher the operating voltage of the cable, more is the insulation thickness required.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. string efficiency is independent of frequency of transmission system.
