How to prepare for ESE Electrical engineering 2017 goes into mind of many aspirants who have dreamed about UPSC. ALthough ESE was earlier known as IES officially but still many aspirants callit IES.
During this reaserch of “How to prepare for ESE Electrical engineering 2017” we have tried to identify difference which have come from IES to ESE
Exam patter of ESE has been discussed in detail in this reasearch of “How to prepare for ESE Electrical engineering”
ESE exam is to be conducted in 3 stages and each stage is elimination stage. Each stage has 2 papers and cut off is to be cleared at Each stage of ESE exam and this cut off is to be decided at every stage by board of UPSC. After addition of marks of both papers of each stage Cut off of that stage is to be declared. Shortlisted candidates of each stage will only be allowed to appear for next stage.
Stage 1 of ESE Electrical Engineering
Paper 1: 2 hours and 200 marks: This paper is common for all streams of ESE may it be Electrical , Mechanical , E&T or Civil.
Details of this paper fragmantation has been discussed in How to prepare for ESE civil engineering as paper 1 at stage 1 is common for all four streams of ESE.
Paper 2: 3 hours and 300 marks and details of topics in ESE exam of electrical engineering for different topics of eletrical engineering has been discussed with its importance and prospective or expected questions to asked from different topics.
Below we have discussed about importance of different topics during stahe 2 of ESE exam in our article of “How to prepare for ESE Electrical engineering”
1. Engineering Mathematics Matrix theory will have about 8 to 12 questions in stage 1 of ESE exam of electrical engineering, Eigen values & Eigen vectors, system of linear equations will have 1 or 2 questions, Numerical methods for solution of non-linear algebraic equations and differential equations will not be of much importance in Paper 2 because of its attendance in Paper 1 as well, integral calculus, partial derivatives, maxima and minima, Line, Surface and Volume Integrals. Fourier series, linear, nonlinear and partial differential equations, initial and boundary value problems, complex variables, Taylor’s and Laurent’s series, residue theorem, probability and statistics fundamentals, Sampling theorem, random variables, Normal and Poisson distributions, correlation and regression analysis.
2. Electrical Materials Electrical Engineering Materials, crystal structures and defects, ceramic materials, insulating materials, magnetic materials – basics, properties and applications; ferrities, ferro-magnetic materials and components; basics of solid state physics, conductors; Photo-conductivity; Basics of Nano materials and Superconductors.
3. Electric Circuits and Fields Circuit elements, network graph, KCL, KVL, Node and Mesh analysis, ideal current and voltage sources, Thevenin’s, Norton’s, Superposition and Maximum Power Transfer theorems, transient response of DC and AC networks, Sinusoidal steady state analysis, basic filter concepts, two-port networks, three phase circuits, Magnetically coupled circuits, Gauss Theorem, electric field and potential due to point, line, plane and spherical charge distributions, Ampere’s and Biot-Savart’s laws; inductance, dielectrics, capacitance; Maxwell’s equations.
4. Electrical and Electronic Measurements will constitute about 15% to 20% marks in ESE exam: Sample paper of Electrical and electronic measurement may give closer understanding of topic.. Principles of measurement, accuracy will play important role and 1 or 2 questions must be expected from this section, precision and standards; Bridges and potentiometers; moving coil, moving iron, dynamometer and induction type instruments, measurement of voltage, current, power, energy and power factor, instrument transformers, digital voltmeters and multi-meters, phase, time and frequency measurement, Q-meters, oscilloscopes, potentiometric recorders, error analysis, Basics of sensors, Transducers, basics of data acquisition systems
5. Computer Fundamentals is an important section which will constitute about 8 to 12 questions Number systems, Boolean algebra will have proper importance in stage 1 of electrical engineering of ESE, arithmetic functions, Basic Architecture, Central Processing Unit, I/O and Memory Organisation; peripheral devices, data represenation and programming, basics of Operating system and networking, virtual memory, file systems; Elements of programming languages, typical examples.
6. Basics of Semiconductor diodes and transistors and characteristics, Junction and field effect transistors (BJT, FET and MOSFETS), different types of transistor amplifiers, equivalent circuits and frequency response; oscillators and other circuits, feedback amplifiers.
