TECHNICAL PAPER40 QUESTION, 45 MINUTES
(1)in a ckt. We r giving voltage of 50 Hz as well as 60.
then what will be the resultant frequency.
(a)less than 50 (b)more than 60(c)in between 50 & 60
(d)none..........according to our conclusion answer will be
none because if we apply two frequency component resultatnt
frequency we can not say with such an ease.U should confirm
the answer
2.In a ckt a single resistor is connected across a d.c.
source, what will be the effect on current in first
resistor if we connect one more resistance in parallel with
earlier one....
Answer.. no change since it is a parallel combination.
3.why we don,t like flashover in transmission line
(tline) (a ) it may create earth fault(b )it reduces the
life of insulator.....
Read something about flashover & puncture.
4.total no of strands in a acsr conductor is 81, then what
is the no. of conductor in its outer layer....(a)36 (b)18
(c)24.......Also read some more on acsr.
5.Two questions based on p.u. calculation like , p.u.
calculation is given with respect to some old base and u
have to calculate it with reference to new base. (new
resistance/old)=(mva new /mva old)*(old voltage/new
voltage)2.
Other question is based upon transfer of p.u calculation in
transformer i.e. how base changes when we we move from
primary to secondary or like wise.read some more on p.u
calculation.

11. A sync. Motor is running at synch. Speed, if al of
sudden D.C. excitation is removed, then
(a) it will rotate at slip speed, (b) it will stop, (c) it
will continue to rotate at sync. Speed
Ans: (a), because actually it will acts as Induction motor.
12. A transmission line is designed for 50Hz, 440KV. If we
want to transfer power at 60Hz, 440 KV, then the power
transfer capability will
(a) decrease, (b) Increase, (c)None
