Power Electronics Objective Questions with Answers: Part 5

[1]which of the following statements are true about VI characteristic of SCR?
A. Holding current is more than Latching current
B. SCR will trigger if the applied voltage exceeds forward break over voltage
C. SCR can be triggered without gate current
D. When the SCR is in reverse biased, small leakage current will flow
a. A, B and C
b. All are true
c. B, C, D
d. C, D

[2] which of the following statements are true about BJT?
(i) It has more power handling capability than MOSFET
(ii) Has higher switching speed than IGBT and MOSFET
(iii) Has low on state conduction resistance
(iv) Has second breakdown voltage problem  
a. All are true
b. (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv)
c. (i), (iii) and (iv)
d. (ii), (iii) and (iv)

[3] For a JFET, when VDS is increased beyond the pinch off voltage, the drain current
a. Increases
b. Decreases
c. Remains constant
d. First decreases and then increases

[4] n-channel FETs are superior to P-channel FETs, because
a. They have higher input impedance
b. They have high switching time
c. They consume less power
d.  Mobility of electrons is greater than that of holes

[5] Which of the following is true about the diodes
a. During forward biased small amount of voltage drop will appear across anode and cathode

c. trr is depends on softness factor
d. schottky diodes have low trr
(i) All are true
(ii) A, B, D
(iii) A, B,C
(iv) B,C, D

The feature of schottky diode is low forward voltage drop, not low trr.
