First Order Circuit Capacitors and inductors RC and RL circuits

RC and RL circuits (first order circuits) Circuits containing no independent sources Circuits containing independent sources Complete response = Natural response + forced response ‘source-free’ circuits Excitation from stored energy Natural response DC source (voltage or current source) Sources are modeled by step functions Step response Forced response

RC circuit – natural response Assume that capacitor is initially charged at t = 0  v c (0) = V o  Taking KCL,  Objective of analysis: to find expression for v c (t) for t >0 i.e. to get the voltage response of the circuit  +vc+vc icic iRiR R C OR

RC circuit – natural response Can be written as ,  = RC  time constant This response is known as the natural response  Voltage decays to zero exponentially  At t= , v c (t) decays to 37.68% of its initial value  The smaller the time constant the faster the decay VoVo t=  t v C (t) 0.3768V o

RC circuit – natural response The capacitor current is given by:  And the current through the resistor is given by The power absorbed by the resistor can be calculated as: The energy loss (as heat) in the resistor from 0 to t:

RC circuit – natural response As t  , E R  As t  , energy initially stored in capacitor will be dissipated in the resistor in the form of heat
