1.In lap winding of a DC generator, the number of parallel paths is equal to ___________

B.Number of poles
D.Number of Interpol’s

Answer  : B (Number of parallel paths (A) in case of lap winding is equal to the number poles (P) of the machine while a = 2 in case of wave winding)

2.In three phase transformer, negative voltage regulation occurs at ___________

A.Unity power factor
B.Lagging power factor
C.Rated KVA of transformer
D.Leading power factor

Answer  : D (Voltage regulation can be defined as the ratio of the difference in the secondary voltage from no load to the full load to the full load voltage.Negative voltage regulation means secondary voltage can increase when the transformer is loaded.This usually happens when there are excessive power factor correction capacitors (overcompensation) at the secondary side of the transformer or if the load has a leading power factor)

10.Power factor is given by ______________

A.Real power/Apparent power
B.Reactive power/Apparent power
C.Apparent power/Real power
D.Apparent power/Reactive power

Answer  : A (Power Factor = Real Power/Apparent Power, or p.f. = W/VA)

11.In delta connection if the line voltage is 1732 V then what will be the phase voltage

A.173.2 V
B.1000 V
C.1732 V
D.3000 V

Answer  : C (In delta connection line voltage = phase voltage)

12.In alternator winding, the numerical value of the pitch factor will always be ———-

A.equal to distribution factor
B.less than unity
C.more than unity
D.equal to unity

Answer  : B ( Pitch factor is the ratio of phasor sum of induced emfs per coil to the arithmetic sum of induced emfs per coil. Therefore, it must be less than unity)
