# Speed Control of AC Series Motor MCQ [Free PDF] – Objective Question Answer for Speed Control of AC Series Motor Quiz

1. A particular current is made up of two components: a 10 A and a sine wave of peak value 14.14 A. The average value of current is _________

A. Zero
B. 24.14 A
C. 10 A
D. 14.14 A

The average value of DC current is 10 A. The average value of AC current is 0 A as it is alternating in nature. The average value of current is 10+0 = 10 A.

2. A 38-pole, 3-phase, 80 Hz induction motor is operating at a speed of 12 rpm. The frequency of the rotor current of the motor in Hz is __________

A. 75.2
B. 76.1
C. 79.2
D. 79.6

Given a number of poles = 8.
Supply frequency is 50 Hz.
Rotor speed is 720 rpm.

Ns=120×f÷P

=120×80÷38 = 252.63 rpm.

S=Ns-Nr÷Ns

= 252.63-12÷252.63 = .952

F2 = sf = .952×80 = 76.1 Hz.

3. Calculate the phase angle of the sinusoidal waveform i(t)=sin(.6πt+π÷.88).

A. 100π÷88
B. 100π÷8
C. 100π÷8
D. π÷88

The sinusoidal waveform is generally expressed in the form of

V=Vmsin(ωt+α)

where

Vm represents peak value
ω represents angular frequency
α represents a phase difference.

4. Calculate the moment of inertia of the satellite having a mass of 79 kg and diameter of 83 cm.

A. 13.65 kgm2
B. 13.60 kgm2
C. 12.67 kgm2
D. 13.82 kgm2

The moment of inertia of the satellite can be calculated using the formula I=mr2.

The mass of the satellite and its diameter are given

I=(79)×(.415)2=13.60 kgm.

It depends upon the orientation of the rotational axis.

5. A particular voltage is made up of two components: a 5 A and a cosine wave of peak value 7.8 A. The average value of voltage is _________

A. Zero
B. 35.14 A
C. 78 A
D. 5 A

The average value of DC voltage is 5 A. Average value of AC current is 0 A as it is alternating in nature.

The average value of current is 5+0 = 5 A.

6. Armature reaction is demagnetizing in nature due to a purely capacitive load in the synchronous generator.

A. True
B. False

Due to a purely capacitive load, armature current is in phase with the field magneto-motive force. Armature magneto-motive force produced due to this current will be in phase with the field flux. It will try to increase the net magnetic field.

7. Armature reaction is magnetizing in nature due to a purely resistive load in the synchronous generator.

A. True
B. False

Due to a purely resistive load, armature current is in quadrature with the field magneto-motive force. Armature magneto-motive force produced due to this current will be in quadrature with the field flux. It will try to increase the net magnetic field.

8. The slope of the V-I curve is 4.9°. Calculate the value of resistance. Assume the relationship between voltage and current is a straight line.

A. .03 Ω
B. .08 Ω
C. .04 Ω
D. .07 Ω

The slope of the V-I curve is resistance.

The slope given is 4.9° so R=tan(4.9°)=.08 Ω.

The slope of the I-V curve is reciprocal to resistance.

9. Calculate the velocity of the satellite if the angular speed is 87 rad/s and the radius is 7.4 m.

A. 643.8 m/s
B. 642.4 m/s
C. 641.9 m/s
D. 643.2 m/s

The velocity of the satellite can be calculated using the relation V=Ω×r.

The velocity is the vector product of angular speed and radius. V=Ω×r

= 87×7.4 = 643.8 m/s.

10. A 3-phase induction motor runs at almost 70 rpm at no load and 50 rpm at full load when supplied with power from a 50 Hz, 3-phase supply. What is the corresponding speed of the rotor field with respect to the rotor?

A. 20 revolution per minute
B. 30 revolution per minute
C. 40 revolution per minute
D. 50 revolution per minute

Supply frequency=50 Hz
No-load speed of motor = 70 rpm
The full load speed of the motor=50 rpm.

Since the no-load speed of the motor is almost 70 rpm, hence synchronous speed is near 70 rpm.

Speed of rotor field=70 rpm.

Speed of rotor field with respect to the rotor

=70-50= 20 rpm.
