Answer: B
12. The anode of SCR is always maintained at........potential with respect to cathode
(a) Positive
(b) Zero
(c) negative
(d) Equipotential

Answer: A
13. IF the chopper switching frequency is 200Hz and Ton time is 2ms, the duty cycle is
(a) 0.4
(b) 0.8
(c) 0.6
(d) None of the above

Answer: A
14. Speed control of induction motor can be effected by varying
(a) Flux
(b) Voltage input to stator
(c) Keeping rotor coil open
(d) None of the above

Answer: B
15. In a Dc motor if the field coil gets opened, the speed of the motor will
(a) Decrease
(b) Come to stop
(c) Increase
(d) None of the above

Answer: C

Solution Hint:
[11] SCR will conduct in one direction only. So it act as a unidirectional switch.
[13] T=1/f, D = TON/T
