Q1. When are the voltage and current in LCR a.c. circuit in same phase?

Answer- When the frequency of a.c applied becomes equal to the natural frequency of the LCR circuit (resonance occur when XL= XR) the voltage and current comes in same phase

Q2. What is the power factor of an a.c. LCR circuit at resonance?

Answer- At resonance impedance Z=R. Power factor cosΦ = R/Z = R/R =1

Q3. An electronic test circuit produced a resonant curve of half power frequency points at 414 Hz and 436 Hz. If Q factor be 10, then find the resonant frequency of the circuit.

Answer- Resonant frequency = Q factor × Bandwidth. =10 x (436 – 414) = 220 Hz

Q4. In series resonant circuit, what is the effect of increase in resistance on bandwidth?

Answer- Bandwidth is proportional to the value of resistance so bandwidth increases on increasing the value of resistance.

Q5.  What is phase angle between voltage and current in a series LCR circuit at resonance?

Ans- zero

Q6. Why series resonant circuit is also known as acceptor circuit?

Ans- when a number of frequencies are fed in a resonant circuit, it accepts only one frequency (equal to its natural frequency) and rejects all other frequencies.

Q7.  When an LCR circuit is brought into resonance, the current in the circuit increases to a large value. Explain Why?

Answer- In resonance condition, the impedance of the circuit becomes minimum equal to R and so the current in the circuit rises to maximum value.

Q8. Draw a graph to show the variation of current with applied frequency of a.c in LCR circuit. Also mark the resonance frequency and current at resonance.

Q9. On what factor, for a given value of L and C, the selectivity / sharpness/ q-factor of a series LCR depend upon?

Q11. What is main cause of noise of transformer?

Answer- Transformer noise is mainly produced due to magnetostriction in core which leads to periodical change of dimension of laminated sheet. Noise also generated in transformer due to cooling fans and vibration of core but magnetostriction is the main cause of transformer noise.

Q12. How humming sound in a transformer is reduced?

Answer 12-The transformer humming noise is coming by the mechanical vibration during the working time. The mechanical vibrations are reduced by the proper casing and assembling the transformer.

Q13. Can we use transformer to step up D.C. voltage? If not, why?

ANS – Magnetic flux linked with Primary coil does not vary with time so no Induced emf in secondary.

Q14. Why the core of Transformer is laminated?

Ans- To reduce eddy current loss. They are made up of thin laminated sheet & are insulated from each other. Finally, the solid structure is pressed to remove presence of air gap.
