#### Solution

Output voltage, V = 220 V ± 1% = 220 V ± 2.2 V

The resistance of a bulb that is operated at voltage V and consumes power P is given by

$R = \frac{V^2}{P} = \frac{(220 )^2}{100}$

$\Rightarrow R = \frac{48400}{100} = 484 \Omega$

(a) For minimum power to be consumed, output voltage should be minimum. The minimum output voltage,

V' = (220 − 2.2) V

= 217.8 V

The current through the bulb,

$i' = \frac{V'}{R} = \frac{217 . 8}{484} = 0 . 45 A$

Power consumed by the bulb, P' = i' × V'

= 0.45 × 217.8 = 98.0 W

(b) For maximum power to be consumed, output voltage should be maximum. The maximum output voltage,

V" = (220 + 2.2) V

= 222.2 V

The current through the bulb,

$i'' = \frac{V''}{R} = \frac{222 . 2}{484} = 0 . 459 A$

Power consumed by the bulb,

P" = i" × V"

= 0.459 × 222.2 = 102 W
