# Power System Protection MCQs Part 8

a. A power system contains two relays of 5 VA and 10 VA. The correct statement about the sensitivity of relays:

1. 5 VA relay is more sensitive than 10 VA
2. 10 VA relay is more sensitive than 5 VA
3. Both are equally sensitive
4. One can’t determine sensitivity from VA

Correct answer: 1. 5 VA relay is more sensitive than 10 VA

b. An overcurrent relay has setting of 200% and is connected to a transformer of 200/5. Find the pickup value.

1. 2.5 A
2. 5 A
3. 10 A
4. 20 A

c. The isolator is installed in power system to:

2. Which runs at a very high speed
3. A turboalternator which uses inverter circuits
4. Which behaves as a motor

Correct answer: 3. Which behaves as a motor

e. The making capacity of the circuit breaker is measured in terms of ______:

1. R.M.S
2. Peak
3. Both
4. None

f. Mathematically the making capacity is defined by the equation:
