b) tail time
c) peak time
d) rise time
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: The double exponential voltage is given by the equation V=Vo[exp (-αt)-exp (-β t)]. β controls the tail time, where β is a constant of microsecond value.

5. Wave front time is controlled by changing the value of ____________
a) resistance
b) inductance
c) resistance and inductance
d) capacitance
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Wave front time and wave tail is controlled by changing the value of resistance and Inductance. The generator capacitance will be given. α controls the front time, where α is a constant of microsecond value. β controls the tail time, where β is a constant of microsecond value.

6. The choice of the resistance depends on the ratio of _____
a) $$\frac{C_2}{C_1}$$
b) $$\frac{C_1}{C_2}$$
c) $$2 \frac{C_2}{C_1}$$
d) $$2 \frac{C_1}{C_2}$$
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: The resistance R is divided into two resistors R1 and R2 to offer flexibility. The choosing of these resistors depend on the ratio of $$\frac{C_1}{C_2}$$ where C1 is the generator capacitance and C2 is the load capacitance of the circuit.

7. The minimum value of $$\frac{C_1}{C_2}$$ for $$\frac{1}{50}$$ μs wave is_____
a) 0.1
b) 0.01
c) 1.0
d) .001
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: The minimum value of $$\frac{C_1}{C_2}$$ for $$\frac{1}{50}$$ μs wave is 0.01. The resistance R is divided into two resistors R1 and R2 to offer flexibility. The choosing of these resistors depend on the ratio of $$\frac{C_1}{C_2}$$ where C1 is the generator capacitance and C2 is the load capacitance of the circuit.

8. The minimum value of $$\frac{C_1}{C_2}$$ for $$\frac{1}{5}$$ μs wave is _____
a) 0.1
b) 0.01
c) 1.0
d) 0.3
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: The minimum value of $$\frac{C_1}{C_2}$$ for $$\frac{1}{5}$$ μs wave is 0.3. The resistance R is divided into two resistors R1 and R2 to offer flexibility. The choosing of these resistors depend on the ratio of $$\frac{C_1}{C_2}$$ where C1 is the generator capacitance and C2 is the load capacitance of the circuit.

9. Oscillations in the wave front and wave tail is caused as a result of the effect of inductance in the circuit.
a) True
b) False
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Oscillations in the wave front and wave tail is caused as a result of the effect of inductance in the circuit. Inductance in the circuit is present in different forms such as stray inductance, residual inductance and circuit loop inductance.

10. β is dependent on ___________
a) load capacitance
b) generator capacitance
c) load inductance
d) generator inductance
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: β is dependent on load capacitance. β controls the tail time, where β is a constant of microsecond value. It is inversely proportional to the generator capacitance.

11. α is dependent on _____________
a) load capacitance
b) generator capacitance
c) load inductance
d) generator inductance
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: α is dependent on generator capacitance. α controls the front time, where α is a constant of microsecond value. It is inversely proportional to the generator capacitance.

12. What is the value of α and β for a standard lighting impulse?
a) α=0.03456 , β=3.534
b) α=0.01460 , β=2.467
c) α= 0.56, β=3.545
d) α=2.3 , β=5.456
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: The double exponential voltage is given by the equation V=Vo [exp (-αt)-exp (-β t)]. α controls the front time, where α is a constant of microsecond value. β controls the tail time, where β is a constant of microsecond value. The value of α and β for a standard lighting impulse is α=0.01460, β=2.467.
