The driving point admittance of the network shown below is
Figure shown below represents a d.c. 10 V voltage source as well as a 10 V a.c. 50 Hz voltage source while Z1 and Z2 are two unknown impedances. When Z1 is connected across 10V d.c. source, it draws a current of 10 A while it draws a current of 8 A if connected across 10V a.c. source.
Now, when Z2 is connected across 10 V d.c. source, it does not draw any current while it draws a current of 5 A if connected across 10 V a.c. source.
Q. What are the elements in Z1 and Z2?
When Z1 is connected across d.c. source, it draws 10 A current.
Again, when Z1 is connected across a.c. source, it draws 8 A.
Thus, Z1 = (1 + j0.75) Ω
Now, when Z2 is connected across 10 V d.c. source, it doesn’t draw any current. Hence, Z2 must be a capacitor which wilt act as open circuit for d.c. source.
Also, Z2 draws 5 A when connected to 10 V a.c. source.
Thus, Z2 = -j2 Ω
The current through the capacitor in the given circuit is
Since two voltage sources are present, we apply. Superposition theorem to find current through the capacitor i.e. current through -j5 Ω, reactance.
A parallel RLC circuit is said to be underdamped when
The characteristic equation of a parallel RLC circuit is
for underdamped circuit, ξ < 1
Assertion (A): A coil, when connected across 230 V dc supply, will draw more current in comparison to that when connected across 230 V ac supply.
Reason (R): The inductance of the coil opposes the flow of alternating current (not that of direct current).
A two terminal black box contains one of the R-L-C elements. When the black box is connected to a 220 V ac supply, the current through the source is I. When a capacitance of 0.1 F is inserted in series between the source and the box, the current through the source is 2I. The element is
As current is increased therefore, new impedance should reduce. If the unknown element will be inductive, the new impedance will be (XL- XC) Ω, so that the new value of current will increase.
A system function has a pole at s = 0 and zero at s = -1. The constant multiplier is unity. For an excitation cost, the steady state response is given by

Consider the following pole-zero diagram of a system,

From the pole-zero plot,
(Since sint = i(t); ω = 1 rad/s)
A coil takes a current of 1∠60° A (lag) from a 100 V, 50 Hz supply. The resistance of the coil is
