# Reluctance Motor MCQ (Multiple Choice Questions) :: Single Phase Induction Motor

31. Voltage rating of the IM depends upon the insulation level.

A. True
B. False

Answer: A

The voltage rating of the IM depends upon the insulation level. The insulation level is also decided based on the over-voltages.

32. 450-seconds rated motor is preferable for __________

A. Light duty cranes
B. Medium duty cranes
C. Intermittent duty cranes
D. Heavy-duty cranes

Answer: A

Light-duty cranes are used in power plants and compressor plants. The 450-seconds rated motor is preferable for light-duty cranes. They can safely operate for 450-seconds without exceeding the specified temperature.

33. Calculate the 3-∅ power developed in the IM using the following data: VL=20 V, IL=5 A, cosΦ=.8.

A. 138.56 W
B. 128.41 W
C. 163.78 W
D. 177.59 W

Answer: A

The power developed in the IM is √3VLILcos∅. The power is independent of time and frequency.

P=√3VLILcos∅

=√3×20×5×.8=138.56 W.

34. The unit of the moment of inertia is Joule.

A. True
B. False

Answer: B

The moment of inertia is taken as the sum of the product of the mass of each particle with the square of their distance from the axis of the rotation. The unit of the moment of inertia is kg×m2=kgm2.

35. Calculate mark to space ratio if the system is on for 20 sec and off for 3 sec.

A. 6.66
B. 4.48
C. 8.2
D. 5.6

Answer: A

Mark to space ratio is Ton÷Toff. It is the ratio of the time for which the system is active and the time for which is inactive.

M = Ton÷Toff=20÷3=6.66.

36. Calculate the average power dissipated if the value of the duty cycle is .5 and Pmax=12 W.

A. 6 W
B. 5 W
C. 4 W
D. 3 W

Answer: A

The average power dissipated can be calculated using the relation

Pavg=D×Pmax.

The value of the average power is .5×12=6 W.

37. The Full form of PWM is

A. Pulse width modulation
B. Pulse run modulation
C. Power width modulation
D. Pulse wisdom mode

Answer: A

PWM stands for pulse width modulation. This technique is used to alter the voltage level of the output of the inverter. We can control the voltage level using the PWM technique.

38. What is the correct relationship between the phase voltage and line voltage in Delta connection with the positive sequence?

A. VL=Vp
B. VL=√3Vp
C. VL=√2Vp
D. IL=√2Ip

Answer: A

In the delta connection line voltage is the same as the phase voltage. The line current is √3 times the phase current and leads by 30°.

39. What is the relationship between line and phase current in Star’s connection with the positive sequence?

A. VL=Vp
B. VL=√9Vp
C. VL=√2Vp
D. IL=Ip

Answer: D

In the star connection line current is the same as the phase current. The line voltage is √3 times the phase voltage and leads by 30°.

40. Choose the correct relationship in delta connection with the positive sequence.

A. IL=Ip
B. VL=√3Vp
C. VL=Vp
D. IL=√3Ip

Answer: D

In the delta connection line voltage is the same as the phase voltage. The line current is √3 times the phase current and leads by 30°.
