The decimal multiples or submultiples of SI units should be used whenever possible. Work results when a force acts over a distance. Work and energy have the same units. Power is the rate at which work is done or the rate at which energy is changed from one form to another. In simple rectilinear motion a kg mass is given a constant acceleration of 2. The derived unit of charge, the coulomb C , is equivalent to an ampere-second.

The moving charges may be positive or negative. Positive ions, moving to the left in a liquid or plasma suggested in Fig. If these ions cross the plane surface S at the rate of one coulomb per second, then the resulting current is 1 ampere. This Schaum's Outline gives you fully solved problems, extra practice on topics such as amplifiers and operational amplifier circuits, waveforms and signals, AC power, etc, and support for all the major textbooks for electric circuits courses.

Waveforms and Signals 7. Obtain the maximum stored energy. Find Q0 if the energy dissipated in the resistance is 3. Assume the initial charge is zero. Compute the charge lost during the 1-ms period.

By integrating the power delivered by the capacitor, show that the energy dissipated in the element during the interval from 0 to t is equal to the energy lost by the capacitor.

Series elements have the same current. The voltage drop across their combination is the sum of their individual voltages. Find the current. Find the total energy delivered to the capacitor and verify that delivered energy is equal to the energy stored in the capacitor. A path is established between its terminals which draws a constant current of I0.

In a capacitor with charge Q and terminal voltage V, let all charges go from one plate to the other. The apparent discrepancy is explained by the following. As the charges migrate from one plate of the capacitor to the other plate, the voltage between the two plates drops and becomes zero when all charges have moved.

The surge takes 1 ms to reach the peak value of kA and then is reduced to zero in 99 mS.

Find the cloud-to-ground capacitance in Problem 2. The current in a cloud-to-ground lightning stroke starts at kA and diminishes linearly to zero in ms. Find the energy released W and the capacitance of the cloud to ground C if the voltage before the discharge is a MV; b MV. The inductor draws mA from the voltage source. A 2-mF capacitor with zero initial charge is also connected in parallel with the inductor through an ideal diode such that the diode is reversed biased i.

Find the value of the inductor. The circuit will generally contain at least one voltage or current source. The arrangement of elements results in a new set of constraints between the currents and voltages. These new constraints and their corresponding equations, added to the current-voltage relationships of the individual elements, provide the solution of the network.

The solution generally answers necessary questions about the operation of the device under conditions applied by a source of energy. Some of the voltages will be sosurces, while others will result from current in passive elements creating a voltage, which is sometimes referred to as a voltage drop. The mesh current method of circuit analysis introduced in Section 4.

The junction between two elements is called a simple node and no division of current results. The junction of three or more elements is called a principal node, and here current division does take place. It may be stated alternatively that the sum of the currents entering a node is equal to the sum of the currents leaving that node. The node voltage method of circuit analysis introduced in Section 4. The basis for the law is the conservation of electric charge. Write the KCL equation for the principal node shown in Fig.

The voltages across the elements are v1 , v2 , and v3. The equivalent resistance of three resistors in series is Two of the resistors are What must be the ohmic resistance of the third resistor? Repeat if C2 is Obtain the equivalent resistance of a two Combinations of inductances in parallel have similar expressions to those of resistors in parallel: The concept extends beyond the set of resistors illustrated here and applies equally to impedances in series, as will be shown in Chapter 9.

A voltage divider circuit of two resistors is designed with a total resistance of the two resistors equal to If the output voltage is 10 percent of the input voltage, obtain the values of the two resistors in the circuit. The ratio of the branch current i1 to the total current i illustrates the operation of the divider.

The ratio of the current in one branch of a two-branch parallel circuit to the total current is equal to the ratio of the resistance of the other branch resistance to the sum of the two resistances. A current of Obtain the branch resistances. Solved Problems 3. Applying KCL, 2: However, KCL applies to the network taken as a single node.

Thus, 2: This is in series with the resistor so that their sum is This in turn is in parallel with the other resistor so that the overall equivalent resistance is Since this is in parallel with the mH inductance, the overall equivalent inductance is 5 mH.

When it is a single resistor with an adjustable tap, it is called a potentiometer, or pot. Find Leq. This is similar to the case of current division in a two-branch parallel circuit where the other resistor has been replaced by R 0. The loads are located at 4, 7, and 10 km from the generator and draw 50, 20, and A, respectively. The resistance of the line is 0. Find i and vAC. A zero voltage source corresponds to a short-circuited element and a zero current source corresponds to an open-circuited element.

Find a the value of Rx and b the power delivered by the voltage source.

Note that v changes proportionally with b. Compare with corresponding values obtained in Problem 3. This produces a set of simultaneous equations which can be solved to obtain the currents. Other directions may be chosen for the branch currents and the answers will simply include the appropriate sign. It also results in more independent equations than either the mesh current or node voltage method requires.

They are sometimes referred to as loop currents. Each element and branch therefore will have an independent current. When a branch has two of the mesh currents, the actual current is given by their algebraic sum. The assigned mesh currents may have either clockwise or counterclockwise directions, although at the outset it is wise to assign to all of the mesh currents a clockwise direction.

In Example 4. The currents do not have to be restricted to the windows in order to result in a valid set of simultaneous equations, although that is the usual case with the mesh current method. For example, see Problem 4. In that problem they are called loop currents. Refer to Appendix B for an introduction to matrices and determinants. Similarly, elements R22 and R33 are the sums of all resistances through which I2 and I3 , respectively, pass. Element R12 row 1, column 2 is the sum of all resistances through which mesh currents I1 and I2 pass.

Similarly, elements R21 , R23 , R13 , and R31 are the sums of the resistances common to the two mesh currents indicated by the subscripts, with the signs determined as described previously for R As a result, the resistance matrix is symmetric about the principal diagonal.

The current matrix requires no explanation, since the elements are in a single column with subscripts 1, 2, 3,. These are the unknowns in the mesh current method of network analysis. Element V1 in the voltage matrix is the sum of all source voltages driving mesh current I1.

In other words, a voltage is positive if the source drives in the direction of the mesh current. The matrix equation arising from the mesh current method may be solved by various techniques. The unknown current I1 is obtained as the ratio of two determinants. The denominator determinant has the elements of resistance matrix. In the node voltage method, one of the principal nodes is selected as the reference and equations based on KCL are written at the other principal nodes.

At each of these other principal nodes, a voltage is assigned, where it is understood that this is a voltage with respect to the reference node. These voltages are the unknowns and, when determined by a suitable method, result in the network solution.

KCL requires that the total current out of node 1 be zero: Indeed, the current in branch 1—2 is necessarily directed out of one node and into the other. The 1,1-element contains the sum of the reciprocals of all resistances connected to note 1; the 2,2-element contains the sum of the reciprocals of all resistances connected to node 2.

The 1,2- and 2,1-elements are each equal to the negative of the sum of the reciprocals of the resistances of all branches joining nodes 1 and 2. There is just one such branch in the present circuit. Both these terms are taken positive because they both drive a current into a node.

Further discussion of the elements in the matrix representation of the node voltage equations is given in Chapter 9, where the networks are treated in the sinusoidal steady state.

The circuit is redrawn in Fig. With two principal nodes, only one equation is required. Current I3 in Example 4. Such a network is suggested in Fig. Since the only source is V1 , the equation for I1 is [see 7 of Example 4. A voltage source applied to a passive network results in voltages between all nodes of the network. An external resistor connected between two nodes will draw current from the network and in general will reduce the voltage between those nodes. The output resistance is found by dividing the open-circuited voltage to the shortcircuited current at the desired node.

The short-circuited current is found in Section 4. For example, a voltage source applied to a passive network results in an output current in that part of the network where a load resistance has been connected. In such a case the network has an overall transfer resistance. Consider the passive network suggested in Fig. The mesh current equation for Is contains only one term, the one resulting from Vr in the numerator determinant: If a certain voltage in mesh r gives rise to a certain current in mesh s, then the same voltage in mesh s produces the same current in mesh r.

Consider now the more general situation of an n-mesh network containing a number of voltage sources. The solution for the current in mesh k can be rewritten in terms of input and transfer resistances [refer to 7 , 8 , and 9 of Example 4. A source far removed from mesh k will have a high transfer resistance into that mesh and will therefore contribute very little to Ik. Source Vk , and others in meshes adjacent to mesh k, will provide the greater part of Ik.

However, the equivalent resistance of series and parallel branches Sections 3. This method is tedious and usually requires the drawing of several additional circuits. Even so, the process of reducing CHAP. The reduction begins with a scan of the network to pick out series and parallel combinations of resistors.

This principle applies because of the linear relationship between current and voltage. With dependent sources, superposition can be used only when the control functions are external to the network containing the sources, so that the controls are unchanged as the sources act one at a time. Voltage sources to be suppressed while a single source acts are replaced by short circuits; current sources are replaced by open circuits.

Superposition cannot be directly applied to the computation of power, because power in an element is proportional to the square of the current or the square of the voltage, which is nonlinear. As a further illustration of superposition consider equation 7 of Example 4.

Note that the three terms on the right are added to result in current I1. If there are sources in each of the three meshes, then each term contributes to the current I1. Additionally, if only mesh 3 contains a source, V1 and V2 will be zero and I1 is fully determined by the third term. With the V source acting alone, the A current source is replaced by an open circuit, Fig. The two resistances are the same, R 0. When terminals ab in Fig. If a short circuit is applied to the terminals, as suggested by the dashed line in Fig.

From Fig. Now, if the circuits in b and c are equivalents of the same active network, they are equivalent to each other. In the present case, V 0 , R 0 , and I 0 were obtained independently. This is suggested in CHAP. If this were attempted in the original circuit using, for example, network reduction, the task would be very tedious and time-consuming. Assuming that the network is linear, it can be reduced to an equivalent circuit as in Fig. Solved Problems 4. With two principal nodes, only one equation is necessary.

The elements in the matrix form of the equations are obtained by inspection, following the rules of Section 4. The circuit has been redrawn in Fig.

By KCL, the net current out of node 1 must equal zero. The node voltage method will be used and the matrix form of the equations written by inspection. The short-circuit current Is: Loop currents are chosen such that each source contains only one current. The circuit is redrawn with series resistors added [Fig. Obtain current I1 by expanding the numerator determinant about the column containing the voltage sources to show that each source supplies a current of 2.

Check the result by network reduction. Consider terminal a positive with respect to b. Consider a positive with respect to b. In the 2. If the source supplies W to the circuit, Ans: When delivering its rated current of 40 A, the terminal voltage drops to V.

In the circuit of Fig. Node C: Contribution of the voltage source: Loop 3: Move node B in Fig. Use the linearity and superposition properties, along with the results of Problems 4. The input and output reference terminals are often connected together and form a common reference node.

For a better operation it is desired that Ri be high and Ro be low. Deviations from the above conditions can reduce the overall gain.

Example 5. Thus, a tenfold increase in k produces only a 5. The common reference for inputs, output, and power supplies resides outside the op amp and is called the ground Fig.

The open-loop gain A is generally very high. In practice, Ri is large, Ro is small, and A ranges from to several millions. The model of Fig. Vcc is generally from 5 to 18 V. Find and sketch the open-loop output vo. Assume Fig. Therefore, the ideal op amp draws zero current at its inverting and noninverting inputs, and if it is not saturated these inputs are at the same voltage.

The noninverting terminal of the op amp is grounded see Fig. This circuit, called a summing circuit, is an extension of the inverting circuit. The input lines are set either at 0 or 1 V. Find vo in terms of v4 , v3 , v2 , v1 , given the following sets of inputs: With the inputs at 0 V low or 1 V high , the circuit converts the binary number represented by the input set fv4 ; v3 ; v2 ; v1 g to a negative voltage which, when measured in V, is equal to the base 10 representation of the input set.

The circuit is a digital-to-analog converter. The inverting terminal is connected to the output through R2 and also to the ground through R1 see Fig. The output v2 follows the input v1. Therefore, vs reaches the load with no reduction caused by the load current. The current in Rl is supplied by the op amp. Such a signal may be Fig. Node B: Apply KCL to the currents leaving node B. The current is drawn from vs is, therefore, zero. For further discussion see Section 5.

Find v2. The inverting node is at zero voltage, and the sum of currents arriving at it is zero. To obtain the input-output relationship, apply KCL to currents arriving at the inverting node: Use the summer-integrator op amp 1 in Fig. Supply inputs to op amp 1 through the following connections. The complete circuit is shown in Fig. Following the steps used in Example 5.

The plot of gain versus frequency is called a frequency response. The leaky integrator of Fig.

Find jv2 j for! By repeating the procedure of Example 5. Table Frequency Response of the Low-pass Filter! However, in their present form they are not the binary numbers representing input amplitudes. Yet, by using a coder we could transform the above sequences into the binary numbers corresponding to the values of analog inputs. Table 5. Compare the results. From 5 in Example 5. The circuit of Fig.

However, the circuit of Fig. Table k 1 10 1 5. Discuss the effects of Ri and k on the overall gain. Note that 38 is identical with Then use 5 to derive Refer to Figs.

Find v1 and v2. Find the sequence of outputs corresponding to values of vi from 0 to 1 V in steps of 0. Show that vC , i1 , v2 in Problem 5. The current source i1 delivers no power as the voltage vAB across it is zero. It is desired that v1 follow the signal with a constant gain of regardless of the value of Rl. Design a current-to-voltage converter to accomplish this task. The transducer should feed Rl indirectly through an op amp. Design 1: However, a resistor of such a large magnitude is expensive and Design 2: The design of Fig.

Find il and compare with part a. The op amp circuit converts the practical current source to an ideal current source. See Figure c. Using results of Problem 5. The two frontal op amps are voltage followers.

However, it employs two small and large resistors which are rather out of ordinary range. Show that in the circuit of Fig. The current also goes through the two R3 resistors, creating voltage drops iR3 across them.

The op amp circuit is a negative impedance converter. Supplementary Problems 5. Find the maximum value of R2 before the op amp is saturated. Write KCL at node B and solve for v2. Design an op amp circuit to obtain v2 from vs. However, as will be seen in Chapter 17, they may be represented by a sum of sinusoids.

This type of function will be developed in the following sections. The angular velocity! Since cos! In summary, for sinusoidal functions we have! Therefore, for a given phase shift the higher is the frequency, the smaller is the required time shift. Thus a phase shift proportional to! The output follows the input with no distortion. The output is a distorted form of the input.

Otherwise, the sum is not a periodic function. Trigonometric Identities The trigonometric identities in Table are useful in the study of circuit analysis. Find Vdc such that the average power during the period remains the same.

Every 5 ms the above amount is added to the capacitor voltage. Examples are discussed in the following sections. Express vAB using the step function.

The magnitude A is sometimes called the strength of the impulse. Find the limit of integral I in 33 when T approaches zero. S is the area of the resulting trapezoid. It decays with time if the real part of s is negative and grows if the real part of s is positive. We will discuss exponentials eat in which the constant a is a real number. This observation provides a convenient approximate approach to plotting the exponential function as described in Example 6.

Draw the tangent line AB. Find the current i in the capacitor. Graphs of v and i are shown in Figs. Sketch i as a function of time. For example, the values of a sinusoidal waveform, such as the line voltage, can be determined for all times if its amplitude, frequency, and phase are known. Such signals are called deterministic.

These are called random signals. Random signals can carry information and should not be mistaken with noise, which normally corrupts the information contents of the signal. The voltage recorded at the terminals of a microphone due to speech utterance and the signals picked up by an antenna tuned to a radio or TV station are examples of random signals. The future course and values of such signals can be predicted only in average and not precisely.

Other examples of random signals are the binary waveforms in digital computers, image intensities over the area of a picture, and the speech or music which modulates the amplitude of carrier waves in an AM system.

It can change its sign at 1-ms intervals. The sign change is not known a priori, but it has an equal chance for positive or negative values. Therefore, if measured for a long time, it spends an equal amount of time at the 0. During the s period, there are 10, intervals, each of 1-ms duration, which on average are equally divided between the 0. Solved Problems 6. Specify the phase angle in degrees.

If not, determine the additional needed information. Find its period and frequency. Express it in the form Fig. The signal is a cosine function with amplitude B added to a constant value A. Find its period, Vmax , and the times when v attains its maximum value. Find and plot the voltages across R, L, and RL. The plot of the resistor voltage vR has the same shape as that of the current [see Fig.

In this example the average power and the peak power are 25 W and W, respectively. Find the frequency, and the average, maximum, and minimum values of p. The capacitor is initially uncharged. Find the voltage across the capacitor. Find the voltage across the parallel RC combination. During the pulse, iR remains negligible because v cannot exceed 1 V and iR remains under 1 mA. Draw the curve as shown. Figures b — e show the plots of v, iC , iR , and i, respectively, for the given data.

The resistor current needed to sustain the exponential voltage across it is supplied by the capacitor. Find the voltage across RL. Therefore, v1 is not periodic. This period is called the transient. After the transient has passed, the circuit is said to be in the steady state. The complementary function corresponds to the transient, and the particular solution to the steady state.

We will also present and solve important issues relating to natural, force, step, and impulse responses, along with the dc steady state and the switching behavior of inductors and capacitors. When a conducting path R is provided, the stored charge travels through the capacitor from one plate to the other, establishing a current i. Thus, the capacitor voltage v is gradually reduced to zero, at which time the current also becomes zero. In the RC circuit of Fig.

See Figs. The circuit is shown in Fig. Following the analysis of Example 7. The inductor current is then constant and its voltage is zero. Using the results of Example 7. The solution follows. The current in the inductor and the voltage across it are given by 9 and 10 and plotted in Fig. For the RC circuit of Section 7. It may also be said that the function has undergone Thus, referring to Fig. This reduces the complex circuit to a simple RC or RL circuit which may be solved according to the methods described in the previous sections.

The initial value of the inductor current is zero. At this time, capacitor voltage Fig. After passage of 10 time constants the transient component equals to 0. At the dc steady state of RLC circuits, assuming no sustained oscillations exist in the circuit, all currents and voltages in the circuit are constants.

When the voltage across a capacitor is constant, the current through it is zero. All capacitors, therefore, appear as open circuits in the dc steady state. Similarly, when the current through an inductor is constant, the voltage across it is zero. All inductors therefore appear as short circuits in the dc steady state. The dc steady-state behavior presented in the preceding paragraph is valid for circuits containing any number of inductors, capacitors, and dc sources.

When the steady state is reached, the circuit will be as shown in Fig. By inspection of Fig. The time constant of the circuit of Fig. A jump in the capacitor voltage requires an impulse current. Similarly, a jump in the inductor current requires an impulse voltage. If no such impulses can be present, the capacitor voltages and the inductor currents remain continuous.

Therefore, the post-switching conditions of L and C can be derived from their pre-switching conditions. Find i and v for all times. The derivation applies to RC or RL circuits where the input can be a current or a voltage. As an example, we use the series RC circuit in Fig.

For convenience, time will be expressed in ms, voltages in V, and currents in mA. For 0 0: Impulse response is a useful tool in analysis and synthesis of circuits. It may be derived in several ways: A unit impulse may be considered the derivative of a unit step.This in turn is in parallel with the other resistor so that the overall equivalent resistance is In the example shown in Fig. In Example Write the KCL equation for the principal node shown in Fig. Determine the complete power information.

With the inputs at 0 V low or 1 V high , the circuit converts the binary number represented by the input set fv4 ; v3 ; v2 ; v1 g to a negative voltage which, when measured in V, is equal to the base 10 representation of the input set.

In this event, the current-coil connections can be reversed and the upscale meter reading treated as negative in the sum. With balanced Y-loads, the neutral conductor carries no current. The node voltage method of circuit analysis introduced in Section 4.
