**Note :—Attempt all questions.**

**1.Attempt any four of the following : **

(a) Describe v arious methods of measurements with the help of suitable block diagrams.

(b) What do you understand by the terms ‘Accuracy’ and ‘Precision’ ? How the two differ from each other ?

(c) Two resistances = 1 kQ ± 1% and R2 = 500 Q ± 1% are connected in parallel. Find the limiting error in Ohms and in percentage for the total resistance.

(d) Prove from the first principle that electrodynamometer type instruments give deflection which is proportional to the product of the two currents (flowing through fixed and the moving coils) and the rate of change of mutual inductance.

(e) Discuss about the error in wattmeters due to pressure coil inductance. How is the reading corrected for this error ?

(f) A 220 V, 15 A single phase energy meter has a meter- constant equal to 1750 revolution/ kWh. The meter makes 350 revolutions in 275 seconds for rated load at 0.8 pf. lagging. Find out the error (with sign) in the meter reading.

**2. Attempt any two of the following: **

(a) A PT has a nominal ratio of 4000/100 volt, RCF of 0.990 and a phase angle of- 0.367°. ACT has a nominal ratio of 150/5 A, RCF of 1.002 and a phase angle error of 0.167°. These CT and PT are used to measure the power of a single phase inductive load (where I_{s} leads I_{p}). The meters read 105 volt 5A and 420 watts. Determine the true values of current, voltage and power of the load.

(c) The iron loss in a sample of magnetic material is 360 watts at 50 Hz with the eddy current loss 6 times as large as the hysteresis loss. At what frequency will the iron loss be doubled, keeping the frequency the same ?

**5. Attempt any two of the following : **

(a) How does a Ramp type Digital Voltmeter work ? Draw suitable block, diagram to explain the same. What are the merits of Digital Voltmeter ?

(b) With the help of suitable block diagrams, explain the measurement of frequency using Analog Frequency meter and Digital Frequency counter.
