All Questions carry equal marks

SET-IV

1. (a) Describe the various sources of errors encountered in a measuring system.

(b) What do you understand by the terms

i. Systematic errors

ii. Instrumental errors. [8+8]

2. (a) Explain the common forms of periodic signals with their waveforms.

(b) What is complex form representation of periodic signal? [8+8]

3. What is digital frequency meter? Explain its principle of operation, construction

and working. 

4. (a) Explain in detail about integrating type DVM.

(b) Explain the successive approximation conversion techniques. [8+8]

5. (a) Explain the working of a Frequency selective wave analyzer with a neat block

diagram.

(b) What is harmonic distortion? What are the types of the distortion? Discuss them. [8+8]

6. (a) Discuss the materials used for potentiometers.

(b) A voltage dividing potentiometer is used to measure an angular displacement of 600 and the total angle travel of the potentiometer is 3550. Calculate the voltage output on open circuit if the potentiometer is excited by a 60V source. Calculate the actual value of the output voltage at this setting if a voltmeter of 1M resistance is connected across the output. The resistance of the potentiometer is 1K. Calculate the % error. [6+10]

7. (a) Discuss in detail about strain gauge Rosettes.

(b) The strain gauge having a gauge factor of 2 is connected in a bridge circuit

having an excitation voltage 8V. The resistances are equal.It is subjected to a

strain of 0.006. If this output is to represent 2/3rd of full scale deflection of a

recorder, what should be the gain of the amplifier. The full scale input

voltage of the recorder is 1V. [10+6]
