Electrical Circuits Objective Qustions: Part-3

Objective Questions from Circuit Theory:

[1] A balanced RYB-sequence,Y-connected(Star Connected) source with VRN=100 volts is connected to a Δ-connected (Delta connected) balanced load of (8+j6) ohms per phase.Then the phase current and line current values respectively,are[IES2010]
(a) 10A;30A
(b) 10√3A;30A
(c) 10A;10A
(d) 10√3A;10√3A

(e) None of the above

Answer: B

[2] Assuming both the voltage sources are in phase, the value of R for which maximum power is transferred from circuit A to circuit B is [GATE2012]
(a) 0.8Ω
(b) 1.4Ω
(c) 2Ω
(d) 2.8Ω
(e) None of the above


[3] The voltage gain Av of the circuit shown below is [GATE2012]

(a)  |Av200
(b)  |Av|100
(c)  |Av|20
(d)  |Av|10
(e) None of the above


[4] If VA-VB=6V,  then VC-VD is [GATE2012]
(a)  -5V
(b) 2V
(c) 3V
(d) 6V
(e) None of the above

Solution Hint:
As Va-Vb =6  => I = V/R = 6/2 = 3A
entering current = leaving current [ KCL]
so current from Vd to Vc is same  as 3A
convert the current source to voltage source
V = IR =2 x 1 = 2V

Vd = Vc + 2V + (3x1)V = Vc + 5V
Vc-Vd = -5V

[5]The circuit shown is a [GATE2012]

(a) Low pass filter with f3db=[1/(R1+R2)C] rad/s
(b) High pass filter with f3db=[1/(R1C)] rad/s
(c) Low pass filter with f3db=[1/(R1C)] rad/s
(d) High pass filter with f3db=[1/(R1+R2)C] rad/s
(e) None of the above


[6] In the circuit shown, an ideal switch S operated at 100kHz with a duty ratio or 50%. Given thatΔic 1.6A peak-to-peak and I0 is 5A dc, the peak current in S is [GATE2012]
(a) 6.6A
(b) 5.0A
(c) 5.8A
(d) 4.2A
(e) None of the above

Solution Hint:
Δic = 1.6A peak-to-peak
The positive peak  = Δic /2
The current flows through the switch has a peak of =  Io +  Δic /2
For your information...The current waveform is like this
The lowest point will be 5A....highest point will be 5+ 0.8

[7] The i-v characteristics of the diode in the circuit given below are 
         i={ [ V- 0.7 /500]A,   V > or = 0.7 V

                                 0A,   V< 0.7 V

The current in the circuit is [GATE 2012]
(a)  10 mA
(b)  9.3 mA
(c)  6.67 mA
(d)  6.2 mA
(e) None of the above

Answer: D
Solution Hint:
we have to find v and then apply in ct. equ...
KVL...10 = 1K * i + v
10 = 1000i +v = 1000(v-0.7/500) + v
solve it ....v= 0.8...

[8] In the following figure, C1 and C2 are ideal capacitors. C1 has been charged to 12V before the ideal switch S is closed at t=0. The current i(t) for all t is  [GATE 2012]
(a) Zero
(b) A step function
(c) An exponentially decaying function
(d) An impulse function
(e) None of the above

Answer: D
Solution Hint:
If it is RC any Resistance in series with capacitor, it will be an exponentially decaying no charge impulse function...

[9] The impedance looking into nodes 1 and 2 in the given circuit is [GATE 2012]
(a) 50 Ω
(b) 100 Ω
(c) 5 KΩ
(d) 10.1 KΩ
(e) None of the above

Answer: A

[10] In the circuit given below,the current through the inductor is [GATE 2012]


(a)  (2/1+j)A
(b)  (-1/1+j)A
(c)  (1/1+j)A
(d)  0A
(e) None of the above

Answer: A
Solution Hint: consider top half of the circuit
R & L are in parallel with ct. source....other end connected to low GND... convert ct. to V source...
