Among 150 faculty members in an institute, 55 are connected with each other through Facebook® and 85 are connected through WhatsApp®. 30 faculty members do not have Facebook® or WhatsApp® accounts. The number of faculty members connected only through Facebook® accounts is _________

Solution:

Total faculty members = 150
The faculty members having facebook account = FB = 55
The faculty members having whatsapp = W = 85
The faculty members do not have face book (or) Whats App accounts = 30
The faculty members having any account = 150 - 30 = 120

In a constant V/f induction motor drive, the slip at the maximum torque

Solution:

In an induction motor operating at any voltage Vr, frequency f, slip for max torque = r2 / x2 where x2 = 2πL2 f.
Now; if frequency is changed (irrespective of whether v/f is constant or not) x2 changes proportionally. So slip for maximum torque is inversely proportional to frequency. Synchronous speed is directly proportional to frequency. Hence slip of maximum torque has an inverse relation with synchronous speed.

QUESTION: 34

A 4-pole, lap-connected separately excited dc motor is drawing a steady current of 40 A while running at 600 rpm. A good approximation for the waveshape of the current in an armature conductor of the motor is given by

Solution:

With lap winding, and 4 poles, number of parallel paths = 4, with a total armature current of 40 A; current in each path and hence current in each armature conductor is 10 A. It remains constant at 10 A as long as the conductor is in one path. When it goes into the next path (due to commutator action) the current in it reverses and becomes – 10 A. Assuming straight line commutation, the change from (+ 10 A) to (–10 A) is linear. With 600 RPM; time for 1 revolution = 0.1 sec. Time of a conductor to cover 1 pole-pitch= 0.1/4 = 25 ms. This is the width of one half cycle of conductor current.
