A single-phase, 4 kVA, 200 V/100 V, 50 Hz transformer with laminated CRGO steel core has rated no-load loss of 450 W. When the high-voltage winding is excited with 160 V, 40 Hz sinusoidal ac supply, the no-load losses are found to be 320 W. When the high-voltage winding of the same transformer is supplied from a 100 V, 25 Hz sinusoidal ac source, the no-load losses will be _________W (rounded off to 2 decimal places).


200 V, 50 Hz, Pc = 450 Watt
160 V, 40 Hz, Pc = 320 Watt
100 V, 25 Hz, Pc = ? Watt

So, Pc = Af + Bf2

Which of the following options is true for a linear time-invariant discrete time system that obeys the difference equation:
y [n] – ay [n – 1] = b0x[n] – b1x[n – 1]


y (n) – ay (n – 1) = b0x(n) – b1x(n – 2)

Following a three-phase solid short circuit fault at the terminal of the generator, the magnitude of the subtransient internal emf (rounded off to 2 decimal places) is ________ pu.


Prefault current, 
Subtransient induced emf,

A cylindrical rotor synchronous generator with constant real power output and constant terminal voltage is supplying 100 A current to a 0.9 lagging power factor load. An ideal reactor is now connected in parallel with the load, as a result of which the total lagging reactive power requirement of the load is twice the previous value while the real power remains unchanged. The armature current is now _______ A (rounded off to 2 decimal places).


At Pconstant, Ia1 cos φ1 = Ia2 cos φ2
cos φ1 = 0.9
tan φ1 = 0.484 = Q/P
⇒ 2Q/P = 0.9686 = tan φ2
cos φ2 = 0.7182
∴ 100 × 0.9 = Ia2 × 0.7182
⇒ Ia2 = 125.29 A


A non-ideal diode is biased with a voltage of –0.03 V, and a diode current of I1 is measured. The thermal voltage is 26 mV and the ideality factor for the diode is 15/13.The voltage, in V, at which the measured current increases to 1.5I1 is closest to:


As, VD = –ve ‘1’ can not be neglected in diode current equation
I1 = I0[e –30 mV/30 mV – 1]
= I0[e –1 – 1]
= –0.64 I0 ...(i)

30 mV ln(0.04) = VD
VD = –0.09 V


A stable real linear time-invariant system with single pole at p, has a transfer function  with a dc gain of 5. The smallest positive frequency, in rad/s at unity gain is closed to:


D.C. gain = 5
⇒ 100/-p =5 = p = –20

⇒ ω = 8.84 rad/sec.


Consider a permanent magnet dc (PMDC) motor which is initially at rest. At t = 0. a dc voltage of 5 V is applied to the motor. Its speed monotonically increases from 0 rad/s to 6.32 rad/s in 0.5 s and finally settles to 10 rad/s. Assuming that the armature inductance of the motor is negligible, the transfer function for the motor is


Input = 5 V
⇒R(s) = 5/s

Steady state speed = 10 rad/sec. (Given)



Suppose for input x(t) a linear time-invariant system with impulse response h(t) produces output y(t), so that x(t) ∗ h(t) = y (t). Further, if x(t) ∗h(t)= z (t) , which of the following statements is true?


Since, y(t)= x(t) + h(t)
and z(t)= x(t) ×h(t)
Case - 1: 


then, y(t)= z(t)

Thus, z(t) ≥ y (t ), for all ‘t ’
