6. One needs to design the distributors, the parameter which will be considered for the design of it?
a) voltage drop in it
b) current flowing
c) operating voltage
d) operating frequency
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Distributors work based on the voltage drops measured across them.

7. One would design the feeders of the transmission system based on its ____________
a) current capacity
b) voltage drop
c) operating voltage
d) all of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Feeders do not have tappings and they are designed on the basis of current flowing through them.

8. The underground transmission and distribution of power is better than the corresponding overhead transmission and distribution in respect of _________
a) appearance and safety
b) maintenance cost
c) frequency of faults
d) appearance, safety, maintenance, frequency
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: All the points are advantageous with respect to overhead transmission line in an underground power transmission system.

9. Before installing any transmission system, one has to decide about the type of the transmission system to be employed. Considering a monetary shortage and economical setup, one would take up _____________
a) underground system
b) overhead system
c) underground or overhead system
d) can be chosen randomly.
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Underground installation takes a lot of initial cost.

10. The volume of copper required in a transmission system is proportional to _________
a) voltage and power factor
b) power factor
c) voltage
d) current
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Weight of the copper is proportional to voltage and power factor.
