Introduction
WHAT IS A DIRECT CURRENT?
A Direct Current (or DC) power source moves electrons
through the wire in ONE DIRECTION ONLY.
WHAT IS ALTERNATING CURRENT?
ALTERNATING CURRENT (AC) means that the flow of
electrons is not in the one direction, but is constantly
alternate.
Ac power sources:
Generators in power plants, wind
turbine etc.
DC power sources : Battery, Solar cells
Why does AC predominate?
AC is more efficient and economical to transmit over long distances,
Higher is the voltage, lower will be the current for a fixed power.
Long distance transmission is done at very high voltage level.
How can we get high voltage ? Transformer !!
DC cannot be step up or down by a transformer !
Edison's original system was DC. It required many power generating stations close to the
population because the voltage couldn't be stepped up/down like AC for long distance
transmission. This is why Westinghouse's (Well, Tesla's IIRC. Westinghouse bought it.) AC
system lasted in the long run.
Sometimes high voltage DC is used for transmission, but it requires special equipment at both
ends.

Alternating currents are caused by alternating voltages.

as a sine or cosine function of time- Sinusoid

Periodic wave forms
A periodic function is one that satisfies f(t) = f(t + nT), for all t
and for all integers n.
Sinusoid repeats itself every T seconds and hence it is a periodic
function.

How to measure AC waveform :Peak value of sine wave
Peak value occurs at two different points in a cycle.
One peak is positive and other is negative.
If the positive peak occurs at 90 then negative peak
occurs at 270.
If positive peak occurs at 0 then where will the negative
peak occur?
The positive and negative peaks have equal magnitudes.
Average values
Comparison of peak values
between two different type of
waves is misleading. Better way is
to find average value of the two
waveforms and then compare.
The average value of any time-
varying wave is the average of all
its instantaneous values over a
cycle or one time period T.
Mathematically, it is represented
as,
Average values of periodic wave form
In a symmetrical periodic waveform if the average value is calculated
over the full cycle, it would be zero as the positive and negative halves
will cancel each other out. So the average or mean value of periodic
waveform is calculated over a half cycle only.
Thus average value for periodic waveform,

RMS / Effective Value
Another method of deriving an aggregate value for AC
waveform is based on the waveform's ability to do useful work
when applied to a load resistance.
Unfortunately, an AC measurement based on work performed
by a waveform is not the same as that waveform's average
value.
Work done is related to power .The power dissipated by a
given load (work performed per unit time) is not directly
proportional to the magnitude of either the voltage or current
impressed upon it. Rather, power is proportional to the square
of the voltage or current applied to a resistance (P = V
2
/R, and
P = I
2
R).
Hence, agregate value of voltage and current based on ability
to work done is Root Mean Square Value of the AC waveform.
RMS / Effective Value Contd.
It is defined as the equivalent value of DC that will
produce the same amount of power in a resistor, as that
of a sine wave or a periodic wave, i.e.,

Introduction to concept of phasor
Both the voltage and the current are sinusoids with the same radial
frequency , but different magnitudes, and different phase angles.
Passive circuit elements such as R, L,C cannot change the frequency
of a sinusoid. Only the magnitude and the phase change at the
output.
Why then do we need to write in every equation, when it doesnt
change? For that matter, why do we need to write out the cos( )
function, if that never changes either?
we don't need to write these things every time. Instead, engineers have
produced a short-hand way of writing these functions, called
"phasors".

Phasor representation
Waveform
Phasor
Phasor is similar to vector , but represents amplitude of a sinusoid. The direction of
the phasor with respect to a reference is given by the phase angle.
At any time, a sinusoid can be converted into a phasor , and vice versa.
Note that the phasor notation does not include the information about radial
frequency e.

Benefit of Phasors
Phasor allows us to focus our attention on the quantities
that changes in a circuit i.e. phase angle and magnitude.
By using phasor, linear combination of number of sine
waves can be done algebraically rather than
trigonometrically.
Phasor reduces the liner differential equations of RLC
circuits (with AC source) to simpler algebraic equations.
However, note that phasor is a complex number so you
will be dealing with complex number algebra.
Two questions:
Why and how a phasor is a complex number ?
How does a sinusoid becomes a complex number?
Eulers Identity

understood for this discussion is Euler's identity:

Cosine and Sine Convention
It is important to remember which trigonometric function
Since a phasor only includes information on magnitude
and phase angle, it is impossible to know whether a given
phasor maps to a sin( ) function, or a cos( ) function.
convention i.e. all phasors map to cosine functions.
Sine convention could just as well be used, but it is
important to pick a single convention and stick with it.

5 Thumb rules for phasor diagram:
Rule 1. The length of the phasor is directly
proportional to the amplitude of the wave depicted.
Rule 2. In circuits which have combinations of L,
C & R in SERIES, it is customary to draw the
phasor representing CURRENT horizontally, and
call this the REFERENCE phasor. This is because
the current in a series circuit is common to all the
components.
Rule 3. In parallel circuits, the phasor representing
the SUPPLY VOLTAGE is always drawn in the
REFERENCE direction. This is because in a
parallel circuit it is the supply voltage that is
common to all components.
Rule 4. The direction of rotation of all phasors is
considered to be ANTICLOCKWISE.
Rule 5. In any one diagram, the same type of value
(RMS or peak )is used for all phasors, not a
mixture of values.
Convention is positive direction of rotation is
anti clock-wise.

The differences between v(t) and V:
v(t) is instantaneous or time-domain representation .
V is the frequency or phasor-domain representation
v(t) is time dependent, V is not.
v(t) is always real with no complex term, V is generally
complex.
Note:
Phasor analysis applies only when frequency e is
constant;
When it is applied to two or more sinusoids, they must
have same frequency.

is also the phase difference between voltage and
current.
Impedance triangle
Admittance is also a complex number,
where G = Re(Y) is the conductance and B = Im(Y) is the
susceptance.
Positive B is for C and negative B is for L.
