Electric Drives Internship Test

Intern has to take Electric Drives 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 Electric Drives topic.

1. Among the following which one exhibits linearly rising load torque characteristics?
(A) Elevators
(B) Rolling Mills
(C) Fan load
(D) Separately excited dc generator connected to the resistive load
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Separately excited dc generator connected to the resistive load is an example of linearly rising load torque characteristics as the torque increases linearly with an increase in speed.

2. Passive torques always oppose the motion of the driven machine.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Passive torques are due to friction or shear and deformation in elastic bodies. They always oppose the motion, restricting the motion of the machine.

3. What type of force handles for active torques?
(A) Strong nuclear forces
(B) Weak nuclear forces
(C) Gravitational forces
(D) Electrostatic forces
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: Gravitational forces are responsible for active torques. Active torques due to gravitational forces can be obtained in the case of hoists, lifts or elevators and railway locomotives operating on gradients.

4. Torque inversely varies with the speed in the windage load torque component.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Torque varies with a square of speed in the windage load torque component whereas in coulomb torque component torque is constant.

5. Reverse motoring mode is available in fourth quadrant.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: In reverse motoring mode motor rotates in opposite to original direction as direction of motor torque changes which makes the motor to run in opposite direction and load torque tries to oppose the motion of motor.
