Q3. Explain how following torque are produced in pmmc instrument and attracted type moving iron instruments
1. Deflecting torque
2. Control torque
3. Damping torque


View solution to Question #3 and discuss with other students.

Q4. Explain in brief why enegry meter reads enegry while wattmeter does not. An enegry meter has a registration constant of 100rev/kwh if the meter is connected to a load drawing 20A at 230V and 0.8 power factor for 5 hours. Find the number of revolution should be made by it of it is actually made 1800 revolutions. find the % age error and explain it from consumer point of view?

View solution to Question #4 and discuss with other students.

Q5. Briefy discuss the construction and working of a PMMC instrument. Why is the linear scale. How range is extended in moving coil ammeter and voltameter?

View solution to Question #5 and discuss with other students.

Q6. Discuss the construction and working of an electrodynamic wattmeter with the help of diagram?

View solution to Question #9 and discuss with other students.

Q10. Differentiate amongst indicating, recording and integrating type of instruments giving example of each type?

View solution to Question #10 and discuss with other students.



Q11. Explain construction and principle of operation of dynamometer instruction. Why is this instrument suitable for both ac and dc measurements?

View solution to Question #11 and discuss with other students.

Q12. Why shunt is usually used voltmeter and ammeter? A moving coil instrument has a resistance of 5Ω and gives full deflection of 100mv. Show how the instrument may be used to measure:
1. voltage upto 50V
2. current upto 10A


View solution to Question #12 and discuss with other students.

Q13. A moving coil instrument gives full scale deflection with 15mA. The resistance of coil is 5Ω. It is desired to convert this instrument into an ammeter to read upto 2A. How to acheive it further how to convert this instrument to read upto 30V

    Im = 15mA , Rm = 5Ω


View solution to Question #13 and discuss with other students.

Q14. Explain the principle of operation of attraction type moving iron instruments and explain how the controlling and damping forces are obtained?

View solution to Question #14 and discuss with other students.

Q15. A moving coil instrument gives a full scale detection of 20mA. When a potential difference of 50mV is applied. Calculate the series resistance to measure 500V on scale?

View solution to Question #15 and discuss with other students.
