Electric Power

Question: An electric water heater operates at 240V and draws 8A current from the mains electricity. If the water heater dissipates 480,000 J of energy in 15 minutes, what is the efficiency of the water heater?
Options:
  • A:

    27.78%

  • B:

    33.33%

  • C:

    38.46%

  • D:

    44.44%

Correct Answer: A) 27.78%

Explanation:

To find the efficiency of the water heater, we need to compare the useful energy output (dissipated energy) with the input energy (electrical energy consumed). Given: Dissipated energy (output) = 480,000 J, Time = 15 minutes = 15 × 60 = 900 seconds, Voltage (V) = 240 V, Current (I) = 8 A

First, let's calculate the input energy consumed by the water heater: Input energy = Voltage × Current × Time. 240 V × 8 A × 900 s = 1,728,000 J

Next, we can calculate the efficiency using the formula: Efficiency = (Dissipated energy / Input energy) × 100. Substituting the given values: Efficiency = (480,000 J / 1,728,000 J) × 100 = 27.78...%

Series & Parallel Circuits

Question: In a series-parallel combination of resistors, three resistors with resistances of 4 Ω, 6 Ω, and 12 Ω are arranged as follows: the 4 Ω and 6 Ω resistors are connected in parallel, and this combination is then connected in series with the 12 Ω resistor. What is the total resistance of this combination?
Options:
  • A:

    8 Ω

  • B:

    9 Ω

  • C:

    14.4 Ω

  • D:

    22.4 Ω

Correct Answer: C) 14.4 Ω

Explanation:

To find the total resistance in a series-parallel combination, we need to calculate the equivalent resistance step by step.

First, let's calculate the equivalent resistance of the parallel combination (Rpar):
1/Rpar = 1/R1 + 1/R2 1/Rpar = 1/4 Ω + 1/6 Ω 1/Rpar = (3 + 2)/12 Ω 1/Rpar = 5/12 Ω Rpar = 12/5 Ω Rpar = 2.4 Ω

We calculate the total resistance (Rtotal) by adding the series resistor (Rseries) to the equivalent resistance of the parallel combination: Rtotal = Rpar + Rseries Rtotal = 2.4 Ω + 12 Ω Rtotal = 14.4 Ω

Electrical Theory and Control Circuits

Question: In a control circuit, two relays, Relay A and Relay B, are arranged as follows: Relay A is connected in series with Relay B. Each relay has a normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) contact. When both Relay A and Relay B are energized, what is the state of the circuit?
Options:
  • A:

    The circuit is open.

  • B:

    The circuit is closed.

  • C:

    The circuit state cannot be determined based on the given information.

  • D:

    The circuit is in a short circuit state.

Correct Answer: B) The circuit is closed.

Explanation:

In a control circuit with relays arranged in series, the state of the circuit depends on the energization of the relays and the configuration of their contacts.

Given: Relay A and Relay B are connected in series. Each relay has a normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) contact.

When both Relay A and Relay B are energized, the normally open (NO) contacts of both relays close, allowing current to flow through the circuit. Since the relays are connected in series, the closing of both NO contacts ensures continuity in the circuit, creating a closed path for current flow.

In this scenario, when both relays are energized, the circuit is closed, and current can flow through the circuit.

Electronics and PLC

Question: In a ladder diagram used in PLCs, what is the purpose of a seal-in circuit?
Options:
  • A:

    A seal-in circuit is used to ensure the safety of the system by preventing unwanted operation.

  • B:

    A seal-in circuit is used to maintain the state of an output coil even after the initiating input signal is removed.

  • C:

    A seal-in circuit is used to provide a backup power supply in case of a primary power failure.

  • D:

    A seal-in circuit is used to regulate the voltage levels in the control circuit.

Correct Answer: B) A seal-in circuit is used to maintain the state of an output coil even after the initiating input signal is removed.

Explanation:

A seal-in circuit ensures that the output coil remains energized or de-energized until a specific condition is met or a reset command is received.

The seal-in circuit is designed to provide a holding or latching function for the output coil. When the initiating input signal activates the output coil, the seal-in circuit creates a feedback loop that bypasses the initiating input. This loop allows current to flow through the coil, creating a self-sustaining circuit.

By maintaining the state of the output coil, the seal-in circuit ensures that the associated output device, such as a motor or valve, remains in the desired position or continues its operation even if the initiating input signal is no longer present. This feature is particularly useful in scenarios where a momentary interruption of the input signal should not immediately deactivate the output.

Test Instruments

Question: In a multimeter, what is the purpose of the diode test mode?
Options:
  • A:

    The diode test mode measures the forward voltage drop across a diode.

  • B:

    The diode test mode measures the reverse current flow through a diode.

  • C:

    The diode test mode measures the capacitance of a diode.

  • D:

    The diode test mode measures the inductance of a diode.

Correct Answer: A) The diode test mode measures the forward voltage drop across a diode.

Explanation:

A diode is a semiconductor device that allows current to flow in one direction while blocking it in the opposite direction. The forward voltage drop is the voltage required to overcome this blocking effect and allow current to pass through the diode.

In the diode test mode, the multimeter applies a small test current to the diode being tested. By measuring the resulting forward voltage drop, the multimeter can determine the health and characteristics of the diode.

When a diode is forward-biased (correctly oriented in the circuit), it conducts current and exhibits a specific forward voltage drop. The multimeter measures this voltage drop and displays it on the screen, typically in the range of 0.6 to 0.7 volts for a silicon diode.
