Re: ABB placement Exam for Instrumentation and Control Engg Preparation Tips

As you want I am here telling you the preparation tips for preparing ABB placement Exam for Instrumentation and Control Engg.

Preparation Tips :

Clear your basic concepts of the subjects.
Be aware about the inventions
Solve previous year paper
Focus On Base Subjects
Prepare according to the syllabus of the exam
Do practice

Sample questions :
(1)in a ckt. We r giving voltage of 50 Hz as well as 60. then what will be
the resultant frequency.
(a)less than 50 (b)more than 60(c)in between 50 & 60
(d)none..........according to our conclusion answer will be none because if
we apply two frequency component resultatnt frequency we can not say with
such an ease.U should confirm the answer
2.In a ckt a single resistor is connected across a d.c. source, what will be
the effect on current in first resistor if we connect one more resistance in
parallel with earlier one....
Answer.. no change since it is a parallel combination.
3.why we don,t like flashover in transmission line (t-line)-
(a ) it may create earth fault(b )it reduces the life of insulator.....
Read something about flashover & puncture.
4.total no of strands in a acsr conductor is 81, then what is the no. of
conductor in its outer layer....(a)36 (b)18 (c)24.......Also read some more
on acsr.
5.Two questions based on p.u. calculation like , p.u. calculation is given
with respect to some old base and u have to calculate it with reference to
new base.
(new resistance/old)=(mva new /mva old)*(old voltage/new voltage)2.
Other question is based upon transfer of p.u calculation in transformer i.e.
how base changes when we we move from primary to secondary or like wise.read
some more on p.u calculation.
6.which table is referred for sag calculation-
(a)stringing chart......answer
7.in a R-L ckt a ac voltage is applied , such that instantaneous power is
negative for 2ms, then what will be the power factor.
(a) 9 deg, (b) 18 deg, (c) 36 Deg...........(I don't know the correct ans)
8. In an incandescent lamp
(a) luminous intensity is more than non-luminous intensity
(b) ,, ,, ,, less ,, ,,
Ans: Since efficiency is less than 100%, hence ans is (b), u should confirm
it further.
9. In which motor no-load to full-load diff. is lowest
(a) series motor, (b) shunt motor, (c) Compound motor
Ans: (b)
10. In a 60Hz induction motor full load speed is 850 rpm then what is the

rpm....................Ans: (a)
11. A sync. Motor is running at synch. Speed, if al of sudden D.C.
excitation is removed, then
(a) it will rotate at slip speed, (b) it will stop, (c) it will continue to
rotate at sync. Speed
Ans: (a), because actually it will acts as Induction motor.
12. A transmission line is designed for 50Hz, 440KV. If we want to transfer
power at 60Hz, 440 KV, then the power transfer capability will
(a) decrease, (b) Increase, (c)None
Ans: (a) ...as P=( |Vt| |Ef| sin (delta) ) / X, where (delta) is torque
13. Increased rotor resistance in rotor ckt of induction motor is related
(a) high starting torque, (b) more speed variation,.....................Ans:
14. In the formulae E = 4.44 f N Ô, Ô is
(a) Avg value, (b) Rms value, (c) Maximum value.....................Ans:
(a)...[confirm it]
15. Voltage & current in a ckt is given by V= V1+j V2 and I= I1 +j I2, then
rms power is
.......(refer book by Edministrator on NETWORK ..)
16. Input impedence of MOSFET is
