Explain the significance of various bits in it.(6 marks) 2 (a) What is meant by baud rate ? Differentiate between serial and parallel data transfer schemes.(6 marks) 2 (b) Explain different addressing modes supported by 8051 Microcontroller.(6 marks)

Solve any one question from Q3 and Q4

3 (a) State the expression for torque developed in a three-phase induction motor. Hence obtain:
(i) condition for maximum torque and
(ii) expression for maximum torque.
(6 marks)
3 (b) Why is a starter required for d.c. motor ? Discuss the working of three-point starter with the help of neat Schematic.(7 marks) 4 (a) Distinguish between squirrel cage and slip ring induction Motors.(6 marks) 4 (b) A 230 V, 4 pole, lap wound d.c. shunt motor takes no-load current of 4 A when running at 1200 rpm. The resistance of armature winding is 0.1 Ω and shunt field winding is 115 Ω. Total brush contact drop is 2 V. If it takes current of 60 A on full load, calculate its full load speed. Assume that flux gets weakened by 5% on full load condition due to armature reaction.(7 marks)
