Impedance, resistance, reactance
Impedance is in general, a complex number. Therefore, in general, the impedance contains real and imaginary parts: Z = R + jX; where R is resistance; X is reactance Resistor no imaginary part: reactance = 0 Capacitor no real part: resistance = 0 no real part: resistance = 0 Inductor

Impedance of series connections
Impedance is in general, a complex number. Therefore, in general, the impedance contains real and imaginary parts: Z = R + jX; where R is resistance; X is reactance R-C in series R C Using complex variables, a series R-C connection can be considered as a single impedance with the real part (resistance) = R and imaginary part (reactance) = XC = -1/(wC) R L Using complex variables, a series R-L connection can be considered as a single impedance with the real part (resistance) = R and imaginary part (reactance) = XL = wL R-L in series L C Using complex variables, a series L-C connection can be considered as a single impedance with the real part (resistance) = 0 and imaginary part (reactance) = XLC = wL -1/(wC) L-C in series

RC circuit example Find the current amplitude in the circuit at the signal frequency f = 1 GHz 1. Complex source voltage amplitude, VS= 9 V 2. Angular frequency, w = 2pf =2p*1E9 3. Total circuit impedance: v(t)= 9*cos(wt) V C 3 pF R 50 Ohm The reactance X = -1/(2p*1E9*3e-12) = Ohm; ZT = 50 – j50.35 Ohm 4. Complex current amplitude in the circuit: I = VS / ZT I = i 5. Complex current amplitude can be found if we present the complex number describing I in the Euler’s form: I = IM ejF IM = ; F = 0.79 rad

Complex numbers There are two commonly accepted notations for the j or i Some examples 1 + 4i is a complex number with a real part =1, imaginary part= 4 2 - j2 is a complex number with a real part =2, imaginary part= -2. -4i is a complex number with a real part = 0, imaginary part = -4 5 is a complex number with a real part = 5, imaginary part =0

Phasors and complex numbers
f VM x y f R x0 y0 A pair of two parameters: the radius R and the angle f fully describes the position of the point (red dot) on the x – y plane The position of the point can also be described by a pair of two numbers: x0 and y0 The pair (R,j) or (x0, y0) is called a complex number Phasor representing complex amplitude (VM L f ) is a combination of two parameters: the amplitude VM (the length of the arrow) and the phase angle f . This pair of two parameters fully describes the AC waveform of a given angular frequency w

N = x + jy, x = Re(N); y = Im(N);
Complex numbers Complex numbers provide a convenient technique to describe the phasors related to AC voltages and currents. N = x + jy, x = Re(N); y = Im(N); Complex number is the sum of two parts: Real part, Re(N), and “Imaginary” part, Im(N) multiplied by a so-called imaginary unit j (sometimes also denoted as i). Imaginary unit is a special number such that j2 = -1; Introduction of the imaginary unit is needed to provide simple and convenient rules to operate the pairs of two number (complex numbers) as a single number. The real number, the square of which is equal to (-1) does not exist. Therefore, j is not a real number.

Complex numbers There are two equivalent ways to define the complex number: by Real and Imaginary parts (x and y coordinates) or by the radius and the angle of the arrow poining to the number. This radius is also called a “modulus”, or an “absolute value” of the complex number. jy |R| Complex number N represented by the position of the dot on x-y plane jy1 x x1

Complex number N represented by the position of the dot on x-y plane
Complex numbers The angle that the vector makes with the axis x is called an argument or phase angle |R| jy Complex number N represented by the position of the dot on x-y plane jy1 f x x1 x1 = |R| cos (f); y1 = |R| sin (f)

To summarize, any complex number can be described in two ways:

The algebra of Complex numbers: all the algebraic operations,
addition, subtraction, multiplication and division follow the algebra rules for real numbers; whenever there is a term i2 or (j2) replace it with (-1) z1 = a + bi and z2 = c + di; addition: z1 + z2 =a + bi + c + di =(a + c) + (b + d)i subtraction: z1 - z2 = (a - c) + (b - d)i
