# Electric Drive Load Equalization MCQ [Free PDF] – Objective Question Answer for Electric Drive Load Equalization Quiz

1. Calculate the moment of inertia of the flywheel of mass of 45 kg and radius of 2 m.

A. 185 kg-m2
B. 180 kg-m2
C. 175 kg-m2
D. 170 kg-m2

The moment of inertia of the flywheel can be calculated using the formula I=M(R2).

The mass of the flywheel and radius is given

I=(45)×(2)2=180 kg-m2.

It depends upon the orientation of the rotational axis.

2. Electric motor and control system are the basic elements of the electric drive.

A. True
B. False

The electric motor and control system are the basic elements of the electric drive. The electric drive uses the control system methods to control the speed and torque of the motor.

3. Capacitor start capacitor run single-phase Induction motor is used in ceiling fan.

A. True
B. False

Capacitor start capacitor run single-phase Induction motor is used in ceiling fan. The motor operation is silent and non-vibrational. It provides a high starting torque.

4. Which of the following are the types of Longitudinal stress?

A. Tensile stress, Compressive stress
B. Tensile stress, Volume stress
C. Tensile stress, Shear stress
D. Tensile stress, Lateral stress

Longitudinal stress is one type of stress. Longitudinal stress is of two types. It consists of Tensile stress and Compressive stress. It has a unit of N/m2.

5. Which type of motor is used for milling and grinding operations?

A. SCIM
B. WRIM
C. Split phase
D. Reluctance motor

The squirrel cage Induction motor is used for milling and grinding operations. SCIM has a rigid structure and high tolerating capability. It provides good running characteristics.

6. Calculate the work done in stretching the wire of length=2 m and the values of stress and strain are 16 N/m2 and 24.

A. 1566 J
B. 1644 J
C. 1522 J
D. 1536 J

The work done in stretching a wire is

.5×Stress×Strain×Volume.

The value of the work done is .5×8×16×24=1536 J.

The volume of wire is 2×2×2=8 m3.

7. Which type of force phenomenon is used in Sugar mills?

A. Centripetal force
B. Centrifugal force
C. Electrostatic force
D. Nuclear forces

In sugar mills, a centrifugal is used to separate sugar crystals from the syrup by the action of centrifugal forces. Centrifugal force acts away from the center.

8. The Speed control by variation of field flux results in _____________

A. Constant torque drive
B. zero speed
C. Variable torque drive
D. Variable power drive

The field flux control method is used to achieve the speed above the base speed. It provides a constant power drive and variable torque drive.

9. Calculate the compensator rating required for sin(Φ)=.8.

A. 0.9 P.U
B. 0.8 P.U
C. 0.7 P.U
D. 0.2 P.U

The compensator rating can be calculated using the relation

QP.U=√1-cos2(∅)=sin(∅)=.8.

This per unit value VAR compensator is required to improve the power factor of the system.

10. Calculate the heating time constant of the machine if the thermal capacity (C. of the machine is 16 watts/℃ and heat dissipation constant value (D. is 4 watts/℃.

A. 6 sec
B. 7 sec
C. 4 sec
D. 9 sec
