4.9
49
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option
Explanation:


2.
The characteristics of a non-linear resistance is i = kv4. If i becomes 100 times, v becomes
about 100 times
about 10 times
about 3 times
about twice
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option
Explanation:

v ∝ (i)1/4 ∝ (100)1/4 ≈ 3.


3.
The dynamic equalising circuit consists of a series combination of capacitor C and resistor RC across each thyristor. This resistance RC (along with parallel connected diode)
limits charging current
limits discharging current
limits both charging and discharging currents
none of the above
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option
Explanation:

Discharge current flows through Re .


4.
The rated current of a thyristor is 40 A. The holding current will be about :
20 A
1 A
100 mA
10 mA
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option
Explanation:

The holding current is much less then 1% of rated current.


5.
A single phase semiconverter is feeding a highly inductive load. The circuit has a freewheeling diode across the load and firing angle is a. During one cycle of input voltage, the total duration of conduction of freewheeling diode is
a
2 a
4 a
0.5 a
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option
Explanation:

Freewheeling diode conducts for a° in each half cycle.


6.
An SCR has a turn on time of 4 μs. The gate pulse should have a duration of about
2 μs
5 μs
20 μs
50 μs
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option
Explanation:

Duration of gate pulse should be slightly more than turn time of SCR.


7.
A single phase half wave converter is used to charge a battery of 50 V. The thyristor is continuously fired by dc signal. Input voltage is v = Vm sin ωt. The thyristor will conduct
from 0 to 180°
when v > 50 V
from 0 to 90°
When v < 50 V
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option
Explanation:

Thyristor can conduct only when it is forward biased. This occurs only when v > 50 V.


8.

Assertion (A): When an SCR is conducting, the voltage drop across is about 1 V.

Reason (R): When an SCR is conducting, the junction temperature is about 200°C.

Both A and R are correct and R is correct explanation of A
Both A and R correct but R is not correct explanation of A
A is correct but R is wrong
A is wrong but R is correct
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option
Explanation:

Junction temperature is about 120°C. Hence R is wrong.


9.

True
False
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option

14.
The difference between resonant commutation and self commutation is
both these methods are based on entirely different principles
in resonant commutation, the commutating elements carry load current but in self commutation, the commutating elements do not carry load current
resonant commutation uses L and C but self commutation uses only capacitor
none of the above
Your Answer: Option
(Not Answered)
Correct Answer: Option

15.
