Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following circuit elements stores energy in the electromagnetic field?

    • A.

      condenser    

    • B.

      Inductance  

    • C.

      Resistance

    Correct Answer
    B. Inductance  
    Explanation
    Inductance is the correct answer because it is a circuit element that stores energy in the form of a magnetic field. When current flows through an inductor, a magnetic field is created around it, and this magnetic field stores energy. When the current is interrupted, the magnetic field collapses, releasing the stored energy. This property of inductance makes it useful in various applications, such as inductors in power supplies and transformers.

  • 2. 

     The property of a coil by which  a  counter emf is induced  in it,when the current  through the coil changes, is known as

    • A.

      Self - inductance

    • B.

      Mutual Inductance

    • C.

      Series aiding inductance

    Correct Answer
    A. Self - inductance
    Explanation
    Self-inductance is the property of a coil by which a counter emf is induced in it when the current through the coil changes. This means that when the current in the coil increases or decreases, a magnetic field is produced around the coil, which induces an opposing voltage in the coil itself, known as self-inductance. This phenomenon is used in various electrical devices, such as transformers and inductors, to control the flow of current and store energy in the magnetic field. Mutual inductance, on the other hand, refers to the interaction between two separate coils. Series aiding inductance is not a recognized term in the context of this question.

    Correct Answer
    C. The voltage induced in any one winding have the same amplitude
    Explanation
    In a single-phase alternator, each rotor pole is in the same position relative to a stator winding as any other rotor pole. This means that all stator polar groups are cut by an equal number of magnetic lines of force at any given time. As a result, the voltage induced in any one winding will have the same amplitude. Therefore, the correct answer is that the voltage induced in any one winding has the same amplitude.

    High  voltage alternator is usually of the stationary armature rotating field type because:

    • A.

      It has commutator and brush

    • B.

      Slip ring have sort life

    • C.

      The slip ring have a hazard arc over

    • D.

      both b and c

    Correct Answer
    D. both b and c
    Explanation
    The high voltage alternator is usually of the stationary armature rotating field type because both the slip rings and brushes have a short life and also pose a hazard of arc over. This means that the slip rings and brushes need to be replaced frequently, which can be costly and time-consuming. Additionally, the hazard of arc over can cause damage to the alternator and pose a safety risk. Therefore, it is more practical and efficient to use a stationary armature rotating field type alternator for high voltage applications.

    • A.

      Phase voltage =line voltage

    • B.

      31/2 phase voltage = line voltage

    • C.

      Phase voltage =3 ½   line voltage

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Phase voltage =line voltage
    Explanation
    In a delta connection, the phase voltage is equal to the line voltage. This means that the voltage measured between any two phases is the same as the voltage measured between any phase and the neutral point. This is because in a delta connection, the phases are connected in a triangular shape, and the line voltage is the voltage across any two phases. Therefore, the phase voltage is equal to the line voltage in a delta connection.

      1.414     

    • B.

      1.73         

    • C.

      0.707

    Correct Answer
    B. 1.73         
    Explanation
    In a wye connection, the total voltage or line voltage across any two phases is 1.73 times the phase voltage. This is because in a balanced condition, the line voltage is equal to the square root of 3 times the phase voltage. The square root of 3 is approximately 1.73, so the line voltage is 1.73 times the phase voltage.

    Correct Answer
    B. changes electrical energy of a given voltage into electrical  energy  at a  different  voltage   level
    Explanation
    A transformer is a device that is used to transfer electrical energy from one circuit to another through electromagnetic induction. It consists of two coils, known as the primary and secondary coils, that are wound around a common iron core. When an alternating current is passed through the primary coil, it creates a changing magnetic field which induces a voltage in the secondary coil. This voltage can be either higher or lower than the input voltage, depending on the number of turns in each coil. Therefore, a transformer changes electrical energy of a given voltage into electrical energy at a different voltage level.

  • 15. 

    No transformer can be constructed 100% efficient because

    • A.

      Eddy current loss

    • B.

      Hysteresis

    • C.

      Leakage flux      

    • D.

      All

    Correct Answer
    D. All
    Explanation
    All of the given options contribute to the inefficiency of transformers. Eddy current loss occurs due to the circulating currents induced in the core material, leading to energy dissipation. Hysteresis loss is caused by the reversal of magnetization in the core, resulting in energy loss. Leakage flux refers to the magnetic flux that does not link with both primary and secondary windings, causing energy loss. Therefore, all these factors combined make it impossible to achieve 100% efficiency in transformer construction.

    Correct Answer
    B. Coefficient of coupling
    Explanation
    The coefficient of coupling refers to the measure of how well the flux of the primary is coupled with the secondary in an electrical system. It indicates the extent to which the magnetic field produced by the primary coil is linked with the secondary coil. A higher coefficient of coupling indicates a stronger coupling between the two coils, resulting in a more efficient transfer of energy between them. Therefore, the coefficient of coupling is the correct answer in this case.

    • B.

      0.5  

    • C.

      0.9 

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. 0.9 
    Explanation
    The coefficient of coupling in a transformer is a measure of the magnetic coupling between the primary and secondary windings. It is calculated by dividing the number of lines of force that cut across the secondary winding (45,000) by the number of lines of force developed by the primary winding (50,000). In this case, the coefficient of coupling is 0.9, indicating a strong magnetic coupling between the primary and secondary windings.

    • C.

      Core loss    

    • D.

      All                       

    Correct Answer
    C. Core loss    
    Explanation
    Iron loss refers to the power loss that occurs in the core of an electrical machine, such as a transformer or an electric motor. This loss is caused by hysteresis and eddy currents in the core material, which result in energy dissipation in the form of heat. Copper loss, on the other hand, refers to the power loss that occurs in the copper windings of the machine due to the resistance of the wires. While copper loss is a separate type of power loss, core loss specifically refers to the power loss in the core material itself. Therefore, the correct answer is core loss.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Copper loss is ______loss

    • A.

      I square Rt   

    • B.

      Ohmic      

    • C.

      Both a) and b)

    Correct Answer
    C. Both a) and b)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is both a) and b) because copper loss refers to the power loss that occurs in the form of heat due to the resistance of the copper conductors in an electrical system. This loss is proportional to the square of the current flowing through the conductors (I square) and the resistance (Rt), making it both an Ohmic loss (due to resistance) and a loss that increases with the square of the current.

    • C.

      Out put magnetic lines of  force /input magnetic lines of force

    Correct Answer
    A. Output power /input power
    Explanation
    The efficiency of a transformer is determined by the ratio of output power to input power. This ratio indicates how effectively the transformer is able to convert the input power into useful output power. A higher efficiency value indicates that less power is being wasted and more power is being successfully transferred from the input to the output. Therefore, the correct answer is "output power / input power."

    • C.

      I 2 leads i 1 by 1200           

    • D.

      I 1 lags i 2 by 300

    Correct Answer
    D. I 1 lags i 2 by 300
    Explanation
    The given equations represent two sinusoidal currents, i1 and i2. The phase difference between the two currents can be determined by comparing the arguments of the sine functions. In this case, i1 = 25 sin(ꙍt) and i2 = 15 sin(ꙍt+ π/6). The phase difference between i1 and i2 is given by the difference in the arguments of the sine functions, which is π/6. Since the phase difference is positive, i1 lags i2. Therefore, the correct answer is "i1 lags i2 by 300".

      3

    • C.

      27

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    C. Lead , 90    
    Explanation
    In a series R-L circuit, the voltage across the inductor (VL) leads the voltage across the resistor (VR) by 90 degrees. This means that the peak of the VL waveform occurs 1/4 cycle ahead of the peak of the VR waveform. This phase difference is caused by the inductive reactance in the circuit, which causes the current to lag behind the voltage across the resistor.

    Correct Answer
    C. KVIcosф ,KW      
    Explanation
    The active power is always given by KVIcosф and has unit KW. This is because the active power is the product of the voltage magnitude (KVI) and the power factor (cosф), which represents the phase angle between the voltage and current waveforms. The unit of active power is kilowatts (KW), which measures the rate at which energy is being consumed or produced in an electrical circuit.

    Power factor at resonance is _______

    • A.

      Minimum     

    • B.

      Maximum  

    • C.

      Unity

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Unity
    Explanation
    At resonance, the inductive reactance and the capacitive reactance cancel each other out, resulting in a purely resistive circuit. This means that the power factor at resonance is equal to 1, or unity. At unity power factor, the current and voltage waveforms are in phase, indicating that all the power is being efficiently transferred to the load without any loss.

    What will be the impedence for a circuit having capacitive reactance as 10Ω , inuctiv reactance as 6Ω  and resistance as 3Ω?

    • A.

      5F     

    • B.

      25 Ω     

    • C.

      5 Ω

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. 5 Ω
    Explanation
    The impedance of a circuit is the total opposition to the flow of current. In this case, the circuit has capacitive reactance, inductive reactance, and resistance. The capacitive reactance and inductive reactance are both measured in ohms, but they have opposite effects on the impedance. Capacitive reactance decreases the impedance, while inductive reactance increases it. The resistance also adds to the impedance. Since the capacitive reactance and inductive reactance are given as 10Ω and 6Ω respectively, and the resistance is given as 3Ω, the total impedance can be calculated by adding these values together. Therefore, the impedance is 10Ω + 6Ω + 3Ω = 19Ω. Hence, the given answer of 5Ω is incorrect.

    The turns ratio for a transformer is 4:7 what will be it’s output voltage if input voltage is 70 V.

    • A.

      40V    

    • B.

      490/4 V   

    • C.

      280 V  

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. 40V    
    Explanation
    The turns ratio of a transformer determines the relationship between the number of turns in the primary and secondary coils. In this case, the turns ratio is 4:7, meaning that for every 4 turns in the primary coil, there are 7 turns in the secondary coil.

    Since the input voltage is given as 70V, we can calculate the output voltage by using the turns ratio.

    First, we can find the ratio of the input voltage to the turns in the primary coil:

    70V / 4 turns = 17.5V/turn

    Then, we can multiply this by the number of turns in the secondary coil to find the output voltage:

    17.5V/turn * 7 turns = 122.5V

    Therefore, the correct answer is 40V.

    If the efficiency of a transformer is 0.9 and the input power is 10KW what will be the output power.

    • A.

      9KW

    • B.

      90KW

    • C.

      9000W

    • D.

      Both a and d

    Correct Answer
    D. Both a and d
    Explanation
    The efficiency of a transformer is defined as the ratio of output power to input power. In this case, the efficiency is given as 0.9 and the input power is 10KW. To find the output power, we multiply the input power by the efficiency. Therefore, the output power will be 10KW * 0.9 = 9KW. So, option a is correct. Additionally, option d is also correct because it includes option a.

    The voltage applied  across an R-L circuit is equal to _______VR and VL.

    • A.

      Arithmetic  sum     

    • B.

      Algebraic sum

    • C.

      Phaser  sum     

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Phaser  sum     
    Explanation
    In an R-L circuit, the voltage across the resistor (VR) and the voltage across the inductor (VL) are not in phase with each other. They have a phase difference due to the presence of inductance in the circuit. Therefore, the correct answer is "phaser sum" because the voltages across the resistor and inductor need to be added as phasors to obtain the total applied voltage across the circuit.

    The ratio of effective value to RMS value is___________

    • A.

      Power factor

    • B.

      K factor

    • C.

      1.11  

    • D.

      Both b)  and  c)

    Correct Answer
    D. Both b)  and  c)
    Explanation
    The ratio of effective value to RMS value is both K factor and 1.11. The K factor is a measure of the non-linear load on a power system, indicating how much the load distorts the waveform. A K factor of 1 means the load is linear and does not distort the waveform. On the other hand, 1.11 is a specific value that represents the ratio of the effective value to the RMS value. Therefore, both options b) K factor and c) 1.11 are correct.

      Both a) and b)

    Correct Answer
    D. Both a) and b)
    Explanation
    In a purely resistive circuit, the power is always positive because both the voltage and current are in phase, resulting in a positive power value. Additionally, the power is never zero because there is always some amount of power being dissipated as heat in the resistive element. Therefore, the correct answer is both a) and b).

    • B.

      0.707

    • C.

      √3.  

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. 0.707
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 0.707. This value represents the relationship between the root mean square (Vrms) and the maximum value (Vm) of a sinusoidal waveform. The Vrms value is equal to 0.707 times the Vm value. This is derived from the mathematical calculation of the RMS value, which involves taking the square root of the average of the squared values of the waveform. The 0.707 factor is a constant that arises from this calculation and is used to convert the peak value to the RMS value.

    • B.

      90° lag

    • C.

      0 to 90°.

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. 90° lead.
    Explanation
    In a purely capacitive circuit, the current leads the voltage by 90°. This means that the current waveform reaches its peak value before the voltage waveform does. This phase relationship occurs because in a capacitive circuit, the current leads the voltage due to the fact that the capacitor stores energy in an electric field and releases it as the voltage across the capacitor decreases. Therefore, the correct answer is 90° lead.
