(1) in a ckt. We r giving voltage of 50 Hz as well as 60. then what will be the resultant frequency.

(a)less than 50 (b)more than 60(c)in between 50 & 60 (d)none

according to our conclusion answer will be none because if we apply two frequency component resultant frequency we can not say with such an ease. U should confirm the answer

2.In a ckt a single resistor is connected across a d.c. source, what will be the effect on current in first resistor if we connect one more resistance in parallel with earlier one.

Ans:- no change since it is a parallel combination.

3.why we don,t like flashover in transmission line (t-line)-

(a ) it may create earth fault ( b ) it reduces the life of insulator….. no of strands in a acsr conductor is 81, then what is the no. of conductor in its outer layer….(a)36 (b)18 (c)24…….Also read some more on acsr.

5.Two questions based on p.u. calculation like , p.u. calculation is given with respect to some old base and u have to calculate it with reference to new base.

6.which table is referred for sag calculation-

Ans:- stringing a R-L ckt a ac voltage is applied , such that instantaneous power is negative for 2ms, then what will be the power factor.

(a) 9 deg, (b) 18 deg, (c) 36 Deg

8. In an incandescent lamp

(a) luminous intensity is more than non-luminous intensity

(b) ,, ,, ,, less ,, ,,

Ans: Since efficiency is less than 100%, hence ans is (b), u should confirm it further.

11. A sync. Motor is running at synch. Speed, if al of sudden D.C. excitation is removed, then

(a) it will rotate at slip speed, (b) it will stop, ( c) it will continue to rotate at sync. Speed

Ans: (a), because actually it will acts as Induction motor.

12. A transmission line is designed for 50Hz, 440KV. If we want to transfer power at 60Hz, 440 KV, then the power transfer capability will

(a) decrease, (b) Increase, (c) None

Ans: (a).as P=( |Vt| |Ef| sin (delta) ) / X, where (delta) is torque angle.

13. Increased rotor resistance in rotor ckt of induction motor is related with

(a) high starting torque, (b) more speed variation Ans: (a)

14. In the formulae E = 4.44 f N Ô, Ô is

(a) Avg value, (b) Rms value, (c) Maximum value Ans: (a)

15. Voltage & current in a ckt is given by V= V1+j V2 and I= I1 +j I2, then rms power is

16. Input impedence of MOSFET is

Ans:- more than BJT

17. Remember truth table of AND, NOR, NAND, OR, EX-OR ETC…

18. What is Truth Table Explain?

19. Conversion of Binary number into Equivalent decimal No.

20. Megger is used for the measurement of

(a) short transmission line, (b) long, (c) medium. Ans: (a)

23. Improvement in power factor reduces

(a) power consumed by consumer, (b) power generation, (c) both a & b Ans: (c)
24. Read about field test of Series Motor

25. No-load test for Synchronous motor, the graph is drawn

Ans:- stator open ckt emf Vs field current

[Read diversity factor, load factor, Reserve capacity factor in depth, with calculation]

30. Why capacitance is shown as a Shunt element in analysis of transmission line

(a) it is between Conductor & earth, (b) because Admittance is used for calculation of capacitive reactance Ans: (a)

31. B-R-Y sequence is followed in three phase system, if phase voltage in B-phase is Vm sin 100, then the phase voltage in R-phase would be
