Presentation on theme: "First Order RL and RC Circuit 7.1-7.4,7.5, 7.7. Natural Response Definition: The currents and voltages that arise when stored energy in an inductor or."— Presentation transcript:
L/R Constant The rate that Vout drops to zero is related to L/R time constant. – The smaller the L/R time constant, the faster Vout drops to 0. – R2=10Ohms results in a circuit that drops to zero faster than R2=1 Ohm
Natural Response of RC Circuit C1 is charged until about t=2. C1 starts to charge at t=5.
Simulation Results VX=Vout after t=5! VX does not discharge between t=2-5S.
Purposely Discharge C1 Between Switching Events
Step Response Definition: The currents and voltages that arise when energy is being acquired by an inductor or capacitor due to the sudden application of dc voltage or current source.
