QUESTION: 23

The current coil and potential coil of a dynamometer type wattmeter were accidently interchanged while
connecting, After energizing the circuit, it was observed that the wattmeter did not show the reading.
This could be due to the

Solution:

As the resistance of current coil is
low if it is connected across high
voltage , the maximum current is
flowing through it and a large
voltage drop takes place due to
which it gets damaged.
