The main consideration in the design of a feeder is the............. A metallic sheath is provided over the insulation to protect the cable from.................... High voltage transmission lines are transposed because then i) corona losses can be minimized ii) computation of inductance becomes easier iii) voltage drop in the lines can be minimized iv) phase voltage imbalances can be minimized Conductors used in HV transmission lines are stranded because of i) increase tensile strength ii) ease of handling iii) cheaper in cost iv) reduced resistivity In an HVDC system i) both generation and distribution are dc ii) generation is ac and distribution is dc iii) generation is dc and distribution is ac iv) both generation and distribution are ac. Effect of temperature rise in overhead lines is to i) increase the sag and decrease the tension ii) decrease the sag and increase the tension iii) increase both iv) decrease both The inductance of a single phase two wire power transmission line per km gets doubled when the i) distance between the wires is doubled ii) distance between the wires is increased four fold iii) the distance between the wires is increased as square of the original distance iv) radius of the wire is doubled (2 x 10)
