Q1 (a) Use nodal analysis method to find currents In the various resistors of the circuit shown below.

(b) Using the venin’s theorem and y/ V transformation ,find the current through the galvanometer of figure shown below:

(c) Using Notton’s theorem ,find the current which would flow in a 15 Ohm resistor between point A and B in following figure

(d) The case steel magnetic structure made of a bar section 2 cm x 2 cm is shown in figure .Determine the current that the 500 tun magnetizing coil on the left limb should carry so that a flush of

2m Wb is produced in the right limb.Take and neglect leakage

Q2(a) In a series parallel circuit , the parallel branch A and are in series with branch C. The impedances are

ZA=4 + fiZ„(4-f«3)

Zc=(2 + /)-4-H

If the current /c = (25 + j°) determine.

(j) Branch currents and voltage

(iv) Draw the pharos diagram.

(b) A 20 ohm resistor is connected in series with an index (R,L) i capacitor

(c) And an ammeter across a variable frequency supply . When the frequency 400HZ the current is at its maximum value c and the potential difference across the capacitor is 150V Calculate :

(i) The capacitance C of the capacitor

(ii)The resistance and inductane (R&L) of the inducator

Q3(a) Draw the phasor diagram of transformer (with resistance and leakage reactance) for inductive and capacitive loads

(b)  What do you mean by A1 day Efficiency ? A 5 KVA transformer has 35 W core loss and 40 W copper loss at futt load it operates at rated KVA and 0.8 power factor lagging for 6 hours, one half rated KVA and 0.5 power factor lagging for 12 hours and no load for 6 hours , what is all day efficiency ?

(c)  Derive the Emf  eqiiation of a transformer . Why the rating of transformer it expressed in kVA , not in kW ?
