Control Systems Internship Test

Intern has to take Control Systems internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Control Systems topic.

1. An object stationary or moving in a uniform motion w.r.t A will appear to be traveling in a straight path w.r.t B. This apparent path is attributed to Coriolis acceleration.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: An object stationary or moving in a uniform motion w.r.t A will appear to be traveling in a curved path w.r.t B. This apparent path curvature is attributed to Coriolis acceleration.

2. If the initial conditions for a system are inherently zero, what does it physically mean?
(A) The system is at rest but stores energy
(B) The system is working but does not store energy
(C) The system is at rest or no energy is stored in any of its part
(D) The system is working with zero reference input
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: A system with zero initial condition is said to be at rest since there is no stored energy.

3. Oscillations in output response is due to :
(A) Positive feedback
(B) Negative feedback
(C) No feedback
(D) All of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Oscillations are the unwanted sinuoidal signals with high gain in positive feedback and s the damping factor is absent in the positive feedback system entirely oscillations are present.

4. The relationship between an input and output variable of a signal flow graph is given by the net gain between the input and output node is known as the overall______________
(A) Overall gain of the system
(B) Stability
(C) Bandwidth
(D) Speed
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The relationship between input and output variable of a signal flow graph is the overall gain of the system.

5. Feedback can cause a system that is originally stable to become___________
(A) Stable
(B) Unstable
(C) Conditionally stable
(D) Either more stable or unstable
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Feedback can either make a system stable if not stable previously or may be it can cause instability as it reduces the gain of the system and hence the system can become stable if unstable or vice versa.
