Basic questions on mathematics, signals and system, communication and probability theory. Only basic fundamentals and no questions from advanced technology. ( Very strict on fundamentals) Panel often asks to explain things in a physical sense rather than putting some equations and solving them. For example  Physically how will you interpret the process of convolution? Syllabus of the interview will be clearly mentioned before the interview. There will be some 5 topics mentioned and out of those one has to select 3 topics and questions will be asked from these topics only.

Electrical Engineering

Questions on B Tech project & electronics.

IIT Roorkee

Written exam  Imp point: No negative marking.  Electrical Drives: Questions on constant power and constant torque drives ...e.g they changed the arm voltage and were asking the change in current.  Instrumentation: Questions on Increasing the range of Ammeter/Voltmeter.  Questions on Laplace transform.  Control: Bode plot , Stability...(easy questions, just refer BS Manke of Control Systems).  Application of KCL in a circuit containing inductor and/or capacitor.  Switching circuits (capacitor initially short and finally open circuited type).  Result was a combination of GATE score & the exam conducted.

They asked to draw the swing curve. Depending on that they’ll ask queations on that field and related fields. Basics of VSi (Voltage sourse inverter) in details . Equivalent diagram of induction motor and significance of different elements in equivalent diagram. They asked circuit diagram of buck. surge impedance Induction motor T-S characteristics. buck-boost. They gave a circuit in which a single line to ground fault had occurred. Synchronous motors and generators. corona losses. Be very clear about buck. its wave form for various types of loads. prepare for the whole syllabus. inverters. They gave some circuit in which there was freewheeling diode and asked about its operation in detail. from the basics but tricky. Difference between a signal and power mos Bundle conductors. They’ll first ask your area of interest. boost converters. nyquist. Devices(power electronic). writing . IIT Power & Control           Kanpur        Questions mostly on control circuits & stability issues. indicate accelerating and deccelerating areas. One of the Profs drew a circuit of dc-dc converter and asked to identify that. polar plot and asked to draw them with a given transfer function (not very tough). In control system they asked very basic questions of bode plot. Direct counseling thereafter. its analysis for different modes of conduction. asked how rotor angle is increased physically. what is the physical meaning of accelerating and deccelerating areas. applications of dc motors. They gave different references & inputs to comparator and ask about the output. They asked in very detaile abot Ferranti effect. Explain Ferranti effect. Why hydel power generators rotate at slower speed than thermal (steam) generators? Questions on load-flow studies & electric drives. On stability analysis (power system)…. Nevertheless. They’ll ask you to answer each question by drawing circuit. their characteristics eg. buck-boost and various wave forms.

I had my final yr. they will ask every thing you have read in B.Tech project in very much details. causal and anti-causal systems. Integrated Electronics & Circuits  Basics of Differential Amplifier Control & Automation          What are advanced controllers?? (they intended to ask about fuzzy and ANN). Inverteres. .Power Electronics. Comment on stability of a given Nyquist plot. linear equations……then asked whether Swing equation is linear or not and asked each and every queation out of it. Something about bode plot. If you hold a good GATE score (/rank) and fairly good SGPA. project on HEVs so they asked me a lot from HEV. Asked other very basic questions from transmission line. Bidirectional DC DC converters.Tech project. like motors suitable for the design. First they asked about B. Define stability. They asked about linear system.
