Q:what is electric traction?
A:Traction means using the electric power for traction system i.e. for railways,trams, trolleys etc. electric traction means use of the electricity for all these . now a days, magnetic traction is also used for bullet trains. basically dc motors areused for electric traction systems.
Q:How can you start-up the 40w tube lite with 230v AC/DC without using any choke/Coil?
A:It's possible by means of Electronic choke.otherwise it's not possible to ionise the particles in tube. light, with normal voltage.
Q:what is "pu" in electrical engg?
A:Pu stands for per unit and this will be used in power system single line diagram there it is like a huge electrical circuit with no of componenets (generators, transformers, loads) with different ratings (in MVA and KV). To bring all the ratings into common platform we use pu concept in which, in general largest MVA and KV ratings of thecomponent is considered as base values, then all other component ratings will get back into this basis.Those values are called as pu values. (p.u=actual value/base value).
Q:Operation carried out in Thermal power station?
A:The water is obtained in the boiler and the coal is burnt so that steam is obtained this steam is allowed to hit the turbine , the turbine which is coupled with the generator generates the electricity
Q:why link is provided in neutral of an ac circuit and fuse in phase of ac circuit?
A:Link is provided at a Neutral common point in the circuit from which various connection are taken for the individual control circuit and so it is given in a link form to withstand high Amps. But in the case of Fuse in the Phase of AC circuit it is designed such that the fuse rating is calculated for the particular circuit (i.e load) only.So if any malfunction happen the fuse connected in the particular control circuit alone will blow off.
Q: what is the diff. btwn. electronic regulator and ordinary rheostat regulator for fans?
A:The difference between the electroic and ordinary regulator is that in electronic reg. power losses are lessi.e.for as we decrese the speed the electronic reg. give the power needed for that perticular speed but in case of ordinary rh type reg. the power wastage is same for every speed and no power is saved.In electronic regulator triac is employed for speed cntrl.by varying the firing angle speed is controled but inrheostatic ctrl resistance is decreased by steps to achieve speed control.

Q:How tubelight circuit is connected and how it works?
A:A choke is connected in one end of the tube light and a starter is in series with the circuit. When supply is provided the starter will intrupt the supply intermittant cycle of AC. Due to the sudden change of supply the chock will generate around 1000volts . This volt will capable of to break the electrons inside the tube to make elctrone flow. once the current passess through the tube the starter circuit will be out of part. now there is no change of supply causes choke voltage normalised and act as minimise the current.
Q:what's is MARX CIRCUIT?
A:It is used with generators for charging a number of capacitor in parallel and discharging them in series.It is used when voltage required for testing is higher than the available.
Q:What is encoder, how it function?
A:An encoder is a device used to change a signal (such as a bitstream) or data into a code. The code may serve any of a number of purposes such as compressing information for transmission or storage, encrypting or adding redundancies to the input code, or translating from one code to another. This is usually done by means of a programmed algorithm,especially if any part is digital, while most analog encoding is done with analog circuitry.
Q:What are the advantages of speed control using thyrister?
A:Advantages :1. Fast Switching Characterestics than Mosfet, BJT, IGBT 2. Low cost 3. Higher Accuract.
Q:Why Human body feel Electric shock ?? n in an Electric train during running , We didn't feel any Shock ? why?
A:Unfortunately our body is a pretty good conductor of electricity, The golden rule is Current takes the lowest resistant path if you have insulation to our feet as the circuit is not complete (wearing rubber footwear which doing some repairs is advisable as our footwear is a high resistance path not much current flows through our body).The electric train is well insulated from its electrical system.
Q:what is the principle of motor?
A:Whenever a current carying conductor is placed in a magnetic field it produce turning or twisting movemnt is called as torque.
