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.

rotate at sync. Speed

Ans:
(a), because actually it will acts as Induction
motor.
