ECE201 Lect-172 Energy Storage Elements Capacitors store energy in an electric field. Inductors store energy in a magnetic field. Capacitors and inductors are passive elements: –Can store energy supplied by circuit –Can return stored energy to circuit –Cannot supply more energy to circuit than is stored.
ECE201 Lect-173 Power Generation and Distribution Energy storage elements model electrical loads: –Capacitors model computers and other electronics (power supplies). –Inductors model motors.
ECE201 Lect-174 Signal Processing Communication Instrumentation Capacitors and inductors are used to build filters and amplifiers with desired frequency responses: –Instrumentation amplifiers. Capacitors are used in analog-to-digital (A/D) converters to hold a sampled signal until it can be converted into bits.
ECE201 Lect-175 Solid State Digital Design Integrated circuits (ICs) have layers of conductors (metal, silicon with impurities) with insulators (glass) between. This is a capacitor! This capacitance is one of the limiting factors in processor speeds. This capacitance is used to create RAMs.
ECE201 Lect-176 Electromagnetics For high frequency signals, inductance and capacitance are more significant effects than resistance.
ECE201 Lect-177 Capacitance Capacitance occurs when two conductors (plates) are separated by a dielectric (insulator). Charge on the two conductors creates an electric field that stores energy. +- - - - - - - - - - - - + + + + + + + +
ECE201 Lect-178 Capacitance The voltage difference between the two conductors is proportional to the charge: q = C v The proportionality constant C is called capacitance. Units of Farads (F) – Coulomb/Volt
ECE201 Lect-179 Capacitor i(t) + – v(t) The rest of the circuit
ECE201 Lect-1713 Inductance Inductance occurs when current flows through a (real) conductor. The current flowing through the conductor sets up a magnetic field that is proportional to the current. The voltage difference across the conductor is proportional to the rate of change of the magnetic field.
ECE201 Lect-1714 Inductance The voltage difference across the inductor is proportional to the rate of change of the current. The proportionality constant is called the inductance, denoted L Units of Henrys (H) - V·s/A
ECE201 Lect-1715 Inductor i(t) + – v(t) The rest of the circuit H
