NIST, Berhampur : B.Tech BE2102 Second Semester Regular Examination-2015 BASIC ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING BRANCH(S): AEIE, AERO, AUTO, BIOMED, BIOTECH, CIVIL, CSE, EC, EEE, EIE, ELECTRICAL, ETC, IT, MECH, MINING, MM, PLASTIC, TEXTILE QUESTION CODE: J 367 Full Marks – 70 Time: 3 Hours Answer question No. 1 which is compulsory and any five from the rest The figures in the right – hand margin indicate marks 1. Answer the following question: 2 X10 a) Differentiate between an ideal voltage source and practical voltage source? Answer: Ideal Voltage source Practical Voltage source (i) Its internal resistance is zero. (i) It has finite value of internal (ii) Its terminal voltage is constant and independent of load. resistance. (ii) Its terminal voltage depends upon load impedance hence terminal voltage does not remain constant with change in load. b) Explain the significance of the power factor. Answer: Power factor is the ratio between active power and apparent power. So it gives the idea about how much percentage of the total power is utilized for useful work.

(b) Using super position theorem, find the voltage across 10Ω, resistor as shown in figure 2.b.1. 5 Marks Answer: Consider 15V Source acts alone: (Means 12V source short circuited ) V10  15volts . Consider 12V Source acts alone: (Means 15V source short circuited ) V10  0volts Because, no current will flow through the 10ohm resistance. So, voltage drop across 10 ohms resistance is 0 volts. From Super position theorem: V10Ω =V10Ω when 15V source acts alone + V10Ω when12V source acts alone V10Ω=( 15)+(0) = 15 V V10  15volts 3.
