Providing Last year question paper with solution – Network Analysis and Synthesis Question Paper -2022-23

SECTION:-A

1. Attempt all questions in brief:

a. Illustrate the admittance parameter of a two-port network.

ANS.1. A 2 x 2 admittance matrix serves as the two port network’s Y parameter. This admittance matrix reveals the link between the input and output current and voltage of the network since admittance is the ratio of circuit current to voltage.

2.Short circuit admittance parameter is another name for it.The Y parameter for a two port network is defined as

[I] = [Y] [V]

Where, [Y] is the admittance matrix, [I] and [V] are the current and voltage matrix.

b. Describe the band stop filter with suitable examples.

Ans. Band reject filter : A band stop filter rejects or disallows transmission of a limited band of frequencies but allows transmission of all other frequencies and is shown in Fig

c. Demonstrate time scaling property of laplace transform.

Ans. The time scaling property of laplace transform states that if,

d. Describe the singularity function with suitable examples.

Ans. 1. Singularity is a point at which a function does not possess a derivative.

2. Each singularity function has an origin unique point and is 0 elsewhere.

3. Generalized functions are another definition for singularity functions. Instead of being defined by its value at every instant in time, a generalized function is defined by how it affects other functions.

4. Step, impulse and ramp functions are known as singularity functions.

5. The examples of singularity functions are :

i. Unit step signal

ii. Unit impulse signal

iii. Unit Ramp Signal.

e. Demonstrate time convolution property of fourier transform.

Ans. Convolution (time-convolution) :

f. Illustrate the drawback of fourier transform and how this drawback can be removed by using laplace transform.

Ans: A. Drawbacks: 1. Without taking into account temporal aspects, Fourier transformation only provides the signal’s unique details. As a result, it is not appropriate for signal analysis with time-varying spectra (non stationary signals).

2. It has a fixed time resolution and a fixed frequency resolution, meaning that it has 100% frequency information but 0% time information.

B. Since the laplace transform exists even for signals for which the fourier transform does not, it is frequently employed to resolve differential equations.

B. The laplace transform is widely used for solving differential equations since the which laplace transform exists even for the signals for the fourier transform does not exist.

g. Describe and state Thevenin’s theorem with suitable example.

Ans. A. Statement:

An equivalent circuit that consists of a voltage source Vth in series with an impedance Zth can be used to replace any two terminal linear network that contains sources (generators) and impedances. When all energy sources are removed from the equation, Zth represents the measured impedance between the network’s terminals and Vth represents the open circuit voltage between them.

B. Thevenin’s theorem:

h. Describe the following terms for a network : Graph, Tree, Co-Tree, and Twig.

Ans: A. Graph: It consists of a set of nodes connected by branches. In graphs, a node is a common point of two or more branches.

B. Tree, Co-tree and Twig:

Trees: A connected graph’s “tree” is described as a collection of branches that connect each node in the graph without generating a loop.

Co-tree: A co-tree is the collection of all of the graph’s branches that aren’t found in the tree.

Twigs: the branches of a tree are called twigs.

a. Describe the following terms with an example.

i. Junction point

ii. N ode

iii. Branch

iv. Active and passive network .

v. Linear and non-linear network

Ans: junction point:A junction point is when three or more branches come together.

Node: An isolated point or the terminal of a branch constitutes a node. It is also known as a junction or a vertex.

Branch: A network element or group of elements connected between two points is represented by a line segment known as a branch.

Active and passive elements

Active elements are those that provide the network with energy.

Active elements include voltage sources like batteries, dc and ac generators, as well as current sources like photoelectric cells and metadyne generators.

Passive components are those that either dissipate or retain energy. Passive elements consist of capacitors, inductors, and resistors.

1. Electric circuits that exclusively contain linear resistance are referred to as linear circuits, while resistive elements whose volt-ampere characteristics are straight lines are referred to as linear resistive elements.
2. Electric circuits including resistive elements are known as nonlinear circuits because their volt-ampere characteristics are not a straight line for them.

Examples of the following terms :

1. Node: In the network shown in Fig, 11, A, B, C,D, E and Fare the nodes of the network.

2. Junction point: Point C and D are the junction points in the network shown in Fig. 11.
