Electrical Machines Internship Test

Intern has to take Electrical Machines 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 Electrical Machines topic.

1. The energy storing capacity of magnetic field is about ________ times greater than that of electric field.
(A) 50,000
(B) 25,000
(C) 10,000
(D) 40,000
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: As the energy storage capacity of the magnetic field is higher, it is most commonly used as coupling medium in electro-mechanical energy conversion devices.

2. Which of the following are applications of singly excited magnetic systems?
(A) electromagnets, relays
(B) moving-iron instruments
(C) reluctance motors
(D) all of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: All of the applications mentioned above needs singly excited magnetic systems.

3. All practical electromechanical energy conversion devices make use of the magnetic field rather than the electric field as the coupling medium. This is because ________
(A) electric field systems present insulation difficulties
(B) electric field systems have more dielectric loss than the magnetic loss, for the same power rating of the machine
(C) in electric field systems, for normal electric field strength, the stored energy density is high
(D) in magnetic field systems, for normal magnetic flux density, the stored energy density is high
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: As the energy storing capacity of the magnetic field is higher, magnetic field as coupling medium is most common in electromechanical energy conversion devices.

4. The final forms of the expression for generated EMF and torque,for AC and DC machines differ, because ____________
(A) the fundamental principles underlying their operation are same
(B) the fundamental principles underlying their operation are different
(C) their construction details are same
(D) their construction details are different
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Though AC and DC machine have same operating fundamental principles, their construction details differ.

5. The basic torque and EMF expression of rotating electrical machines are ____________
(A) applicable to DC machines only
(B) applicable to AC machines only
(C) applicable to both AC and DC machines
(D) none of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: Basic torque and EMF expressions are same for both AC and DC machines as the fundamental principles underlying the operation of AC and DC machines are same.
