4. (a) Solution
        Light is defined as visually radiant energy and it has predication. It can travel through
space in form of electromagnetic wave at constant speed.

4. (b) Solution

Regular reflection
        The parallel beam of light is reflected as such mirror reflection area called regular

Scatter reflection
        If, however a beam of light strikes a white wash ceiling, the incident light is scattered
in all direction. This is known as scatter or diffuse reflection.

Mixed reflection
        Between the extremes of these two there are numerous transition-mixed or
semidiffuse reflection.

4. (c) Solution
        The molders light are based one of following method of light generation.

Temperature radiation
        For age this had been method avariable, example of temperature radiation are tough,
candle, the oil lamp and the gas lamp, etc. The filament lamp too is based.
Gas discharge
        Under certain condition it is possible to pass electrical current through a gas (or) metal
vapour. Visible radiation can be generated in this way because free electron knocks the
electron bond in the gas atom out of their normal path. This lost is followed back to the
original path, give of the energy, in form of radiation. This must more economically than
temperature radiation.

        Certain material can, when exposed an ultra violet or visible radiationb, transform
observed energy into radiation with longer wavelength. This is used in fluorescence lamp and
in mercury-covered lamp.

5. (a) Solution
        Circuit can be buit up from simple three phase circuit. For example, if the two light
points are controlled from one-way switch. In loop wire is taken from each terminal of first
light point and connected to the correspond terminal of the second light point. The result is
that when switch is closed the current has two paths. One through each lamp, so that both are
energized. This circuit is said to be connected in parallel.
        When several circuits have to supply from main switch, the switch wire may all be
connected to one side of supply and the return wire from apparatus to the other side. They are
then in parallel.
        The full electrical pressure of the supply is applied to each circuit. The amount of
power taken by any one circuit is independent of power taken to other side.

       Two methods are used as;
(i)    Using a sharp knife, slice a cable lengthwise, opened a cable up and cut off the
(ii)   With pair of slide cutter, split end of the supply and hole out the end of the earth
       conductor. This may then be help with a pair of piler and pulled back along the fuse
       cable, splitting open the sheathe. Excess sheathe may be cut away.

7. Solution
         (a) Rising Mains Cables system and Busbar system (10 marks)
         Please  see in page 71-72 of textbook

(b) Values of Earth-loop Impedance (6 marks)
         The go/no-go type of tester simply gives an indication of weather the circuit is
suitable for semi-enclosed or cartridge fuse having a fusing factor exceeding 1.5. Since these
require the lowest impedance of all types of earth-leakage protection. If values above this are
obtained and a check reveats no fault on the circuits then the earth electroder resistance must
be tested.
         The line-earth loop tester and the step-down transformer neutral earth loop tester both
relay on a mains supply being available and therefore cannot be used prior to the electric
board being requested to provide a supply. The hand generator type of instrument can
however, be used to check the impedance of the earth electrode and trace high-impedance
section of the installation prior to a supply being connected. It must be remembered however
that this type of instrument normally only injects a very a small test current and consequently
may not detect earth-continuity paths of low current carrying capacity.
8. Solution
(a) Producer for Load Estimation
       A suggested producer for determining the design currents in various sections of a
bulding is given in the following steps.
       • Determine the quantity of each type of load and the power requirements. Estimate
         the design current in each final circuit based on the rating of the connected load.
        Apply an appropriate demand factor to obtain the maximum demand of earth final
       • Determine the type of connection from the final DB to the main DB and continue up
         to the incoming switchboard. Estimate the design current in each distribution circuit
         using an appropriate coincidence factor.
       • Determine spare capacity to be provided for load growth.
