Power System Protection MCQ Part 1

Power system protection MCQ questions Part 1. Electrical Engineering MCQ Questions with answer on power system protection.

In a circuit breaker the arcing contacts are made of which material

In a circuit breaker the arcing contacts are made of which material:

  1. Porcelain
  2. Tungsten alloy
  3. Electrolytic copper
  4. All of these

Correct answer: 2. Tungsten alloy

The Arcing contacts in a circuit breaker are designed in such as manner so as to prevent the main contacts from being damaged. The arcing contacts in a circuit breaker are made from tungsten alloys, cadmium and zinc. Usage of these materials make the arcing contacts harder. As a result of this when the contacts open and close they will not deteriorate as quickly.

Internal faults on the transformer arise from

Internal faults on the transformer arise from:

  1. Overheating
  2. Mechanical injury
  3. Both of these
  4. None of these

Correct answer: 3. Both of these

The major function of a fuse is to

The major function of a fuse is to:

  1. Open the circuit
  2. Prevent excessive currents
  3. Both of these
  4. None of these

Correct answer: 3. Both of these

Which of the following is the correct statement about SF6 gas

Which of the following is correct statement about SF6 gas:

  1. It is yellowish green in color
  2. It is nontoxic gas
  3. Is lighter than air
  4. All of these

Correct answer: 2. It is nontoxic gas

Time current characteristics of a Fuse

A fuse exhibits ________ time current characteristics:

  1. Inverse
  2. Direct

Correct answer: 1. Inverse

A fuse performs

A fuse performs:

  1. Detection function only
  2. Interruption function only
  3. Both of these
  4. None of these

Correct answer: 3. Both of these

Generally the main contacts of circuit breaker are constructed of

Generally the main contacts of circuit breaker are constructed of:

  1. Softer alloy
  2. Harder alloy

Correct answer: Since the main contacts of a circuit breaker have to carry the main load current, they are constructed of a softer alloy that uses less tungsten and more silver so as to keep resistance low.

Relays can be actuated by which of the below mentioned quantities:

  1. Magnitude
  2. Frequency
  3. Phase angle
  4. All of these

Correct answer: 4. All of these

Induction relays can be used with dc quantities

Induction relays can be used with dc quantities:

  1. True
  2. False

Correct answer: False

In a circuit breaker the process of Ionization is facilitated by

In a circuit breaker the process of Ionization is facilitated by:

  1. High temperature
  2. Increasing field strength
  3. Both of these
  4. None of these

Correct answer: 3. Both of these
