1.Lenz’s Law follows from

A. Principle of conservation of mass

B. Principle of superposition

C. Principle of conservation of energy

D. Principle of homogeneity

Answer  : C

2.The coupling coefficient for the transformer below

A. 0

B. 1

C. 0.56

D. 0.98

Answer  : C (k=M/√L₁L₂=2.5/√5*4=0.56)

3.An ideal transformer, connected to a 240 V mains, supplies power to a 12 V, 150 W lamp.The current drawn from the mains is

A. 0

B. 1

C. 0.05

D. 0.625

Answer  : D

(Secondary current I₂=P/V₂=150/12=12.5 A
The transformation ratio n=V₂/V₁=12/240=0.05
The current drawn from supply I₁=I₂×n=12.5×0.05=0.625 A)

4.The dependent source in Fig is

(a) Voltage-controlled current source

(b) Voltage-controlled voltage source

(c) Current-controlled voltage source

(d) Current-controlled current source

Answer  : D (A current source that depends on a current input is generally referred to as a Current Controlled Current Source or CCCS)

5.The current iₒ and voltage vₒ in the circuit shown in Fig is

A. 6 A,24 V

B. 3 A,12 V

C. 4 A,8 V

D. 2 A,4 V

Answer  : A

(Applying KCL to node a, we obtain
3 + 0.5 iₒ = iₒ ⇒ iₒ = 6 A
For the 4-Ω resistor, Ohm’s law gives
vₒ= 4 iₒ = 24 V)

6.What is the form factor of pure sine wave
A. 1.11

B. 1.414

C. 1.57

D. 0.909

Answer  : A (Form Factor is the ratio between the average value and the RMS value and is given as. For a pure sinusoidal waveform the Form Factor will always be equal to 1.11)

7. A network with b branches, n nodes, and l independent loops will satisfy which of the

A. b=l-n+1

B. b= n-l+1


D. b=l-n-1

Answer  : C

8.Total losses occurring in a transformer when it is operating at its maximum efficiency are 2000 W. The total copper losses is

A. 2000 W

B. 1000 W

C. 1500 W

D. 800 W

Answer  : B

(The condition for maximum efficiency is, Full load copper loss Pc = Iron loss, Pi ,Total loss P = Pc + Pi = 1000 + 1000 = 2000 W)

9.A salient pole machine is used for

A. Low speed applications in Hydro plants

B. High speed applications in Hydro plants

C. Low speed applications in Thermal plants

D. High speed applications in

Answer  : A

10.If a three-phase, 8–pole, 50 Hz induction motor runs at a speed of 735 r.p.m. then the slip is

A. 0.02

B. 0.03

C. 0.04

D. 0.05

Answer  : A (Ns=120*f/P=120*50/8=750,s=(Ns-Nr)/Ns=(750-735)/750=15/750=0.02)

11.In an oil- filled transformer, oil is provided for

A. Cooling

B. Insulation

C. Lubrication

D.Both Cooling and insulation

Answer  : D

12.Kirchoff’s Laws are applicable for

A. DC circuits only

B. Circuits with rectified AC supply

C. Both AC and DC circuits

D.AC circuits only

Answer  : C

13.In a Y-Y system, a line voltage of 220 V produces a phase voltage of

A. 381 V

B. 311 V

C. 220 V

D. 127 V

Answer  : D (Vph=VL/√3=220/√3=127.02 V)

14.A commutator in a DC machine can convert

A. AC to DC

B. DC to AC

C. Pulsating to DC

D. Both AC to DC & DC to AC

Answer  : D (In DC Generator the commutator converts AC to DC,In DC Motor DC to AC ,Thus Commutator in a DC machine converts both AC to DC and DC to AC)

15.The main purpose of using a core in transformer is to

A. Decrease iron loss

B. Prevent eddy current loss

C. Eliminate magnetic hysteresis

D. Decrease reluctance of the magnetic circuit

A. moving iron

B. moving coil

C. electrostatic

D. induction

Answer  : B

17.Short circuit test on transformer is conducted to obtain

A. Core losses at any load

B. Hysteresis loss only

C. Ohmic Loss

D. Eddy Current Loss only

Answer  : C
