d) 1500W**Answer: c**

5. Determine the maximum power delivered to the load in the network given.

a) 4.68W

b) 5.75W

c) 3.16W

d) 6.84W

View Answer

**These are Circuit Analysis Questions**

Answer: a

Explanation: Load is given across node V_{2} and reference path. It implies the thevenin’s voltage is V_{2}. By using nodal analysis this voltage is found out.

R_{Th}=RL= 10Ω//5Ω and in series with 2Ω and then parallel with 3Ω=1.92Ω

Max power = (V_{Th})^{ 2} /4R_{L} = 4.688W.

6. The Superposition principle is obeyed by ____________

a) Linear networks

b) Non-linear networks

c) Lateral networks

d) Trilateral networks

View Answer

Answer: a

Explanation: A linear system obeys Superposition Principle. In a linear network parameters are constant i/e/ won’t change with voltage and current.

7. According to Superposition principle response in one element is the algebraic sum of responses by individual sources acting alone.

a) False

b) True

View Answer

Answer: b

Explanation: According to Superposition principle response in one element is the algebraic sum of responses by individual sources acting alone while other sources are non-operative.

8. Find the current in the 3Ω resistor of the given network using Superposition principle.

a) 2.5A

b) 3.125A

c) 6.525A

d) 5.625A

View Answer

Answer: d

Explanation: 1.When 20v source acting alone: current source is replaced by open circuit. R_{eq}= 5+3=8Ω and Current I= 20/8=2.5A

2. When 5A source acting alone: 20v source is replaced by a short circuit. By current division rule, I_{3}= 25/8=3.125A

Total current through I_{3}= 2.5+3.125=5.625A.

9. Find the current in 5Ω resistor near 12V source using superposition principle in network given

a) 2.9A

b) -2.9A

c) 1A

d) -1A

Answer: b

Explanation: Only 3 sources are considered (12V, 10A, 20V), other is dependent (10I).

12v source: I=0.6A

10A source: I=-2.5A through 5Ω resistor and I=7.5A

20v source: I=-1A

Total current = 0.6+ (-2.5) + (-1) = -2.9A.

10. If there are 5 sources in a network out of which 3 are dependent and 2 are independent. For superposition principle ___________ sources are considered.

a) 5

b) 3

c) 2

d) 0

View Answer

Answer: c

Explanation: Only independent sources are considered while using Superposition principle. Dependent sources are never deactivated while using this principle.

11. Find the current in the 1Ω resistor of the given circuit.

a) 4A

b) 1.33A

c) 2A

d) 0.66A

View Answer

Answer: a

Explanation: when all the sources are acting alone the corresponding currents are found out using current division rule and finally all are summated to get the required current through the1Ω resistor. (Current = 1.33+0.66+2=4A).

12. Find the value of RL in given circuit.

a) 4Ω

b) 5Ω

c) 3Ω

d) 1.66Ω
