TECHNICAL PAPER-40 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 (t-line)-

(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.
