17.1 SERIES RLC CIRCUIT


Inductive reactance (XL ) causes the
total
current to lag the applied voltage.
Capacitive reactance (XC ) causes the
total
current to lead the applied voltage.
Therefore, XL and XC tend to offset each

At the resonant frequency


VC and VL > VS
VC and VL cancel leaving 0V because their
voltages are equal in magnitude but opposite in
phase
ZT = R, at the minimum value because XT = 0
Thus I at the maximum value

d) ANALYSIS OF SERIES RLC CIRCUITS
At low frequency
XC XL Circuit predominantly capacitive
As f XC and XL until XL = XC
At high frequency
XL XC Circuit predominantly inductive
At resonance frequency
XL = X C
the two reactance cancel
Circuit purely resistive
series resonance
XL is a straight line since,
XL = 2fL
General straight line formula, y = mx + C
Thus y = XL; slope, m = 2L and C = 0
XC curve is called hyperbola
General hyperbola formula; xy = k
Where x = f; y = XC and k = 1/2C

17.2 PARALLEL RLC CIRCUIT
CURRENT RELATIONSHIPS
In parallel RLC circuit, the current in the capacitive branch and the current in the
inductive branch are always 180 degree out of phase with each other. For this reason,
IC and IL subtract from each other.

The total current can be expressed as:


where ICL

= IC - IL

Following the Ohm s Law:


Therefore, the total current IT:
Current at the inductor branch, IL :
Current at the capacitor branch, IC :

c) When IC = IL (the circuit is at resonance)
Ideally, parallel resonance occurs when:
When XC =X

, the two branch current IC and IL are equal in magnitude.

Impedance:

Phase shift:

Resonance frequency:

Parallel resonance occurs when XL = XC


Frequency at which resonance occurs is known
as resonant frequency
When XL = XC, IC and IL are equal in magnitude
but 180 out of phase
Thus ICL = 0
Thus XL = XC and Z=infiniti
