ALTERNATING CURRENT
Slide 1 An alternating voltage v = vm sin t applied to a resistor R v drives a current i = im sin t in the resistor, im = m R The current is in phase with the applied voltage. _____________________ Slide 2 ______________________ For an alternating current i = im sin t passing through a resistor R, the average power loss P (averaged over a cycle) due to joule heating is (1/2)i2m R. To express it in the same form as the dc power (P = I2R), a special value of current is used. It is called root mean square (rms) current and is denoted i by I = 0 = 0.707 i0 The mean or average value of 2 alternating e.m.f. over positive half cycle (0 to T/2) is 2E0 Em = = 0.637 E0 The average power loss over a complete cycle is given by P = V I cos . The term cos is called the power factor. When a value is given for ac voltage or current, it is ordinarily the rms value. The usual domestic power supply 220 volt ac has an rms voltage of 220 V. The voltage amplitude or peak value is Em = 2 Erms = 2 ( 220V ) = 311V _____________________ Slide 3 ______________________ Wattless current: Phase angle between Erms and Irms sin is /2, average power consumed in the circuit due to components Irms sin is zero. Only the component Irms cos which is to actually responsible for consumption of power in an a.c. circuit. The current through the capacitor is /2 ahead of the applied voltage. As in the case of inductor, the average power supplied to a capacitor over one complete cycle is zero. In a high frequency A.C. circuit, the capacitor acts like a conductor. In an ac circuit, while adding voltages across different elements, one should take care of their phases properly. For example, if VR and VC are voltages across R and C, respectively in an RC circuit, then the total voltage across
2 2 RC combination is VRC = VR + VC and not VR + VC since

Slide 4 An ac voltage V = Vm sin t applied to pure inductor L, drives a current in the inductor i = im sin (t /2), where im = vm/XL. XL = L is called inductive reactance. The current in the inductor lags the voltage by /2. The average power supplied to an inductor over one complete cycle is zero.

Inductor offers no opposition to the flow of d.c. or where as a resistive path to a.c. An ac voltage V = Vm sin t applied to a capacitor drives a current in the capacitor: i = im sin (t + /2). Here. v 1 im = m , XC = is called capacitive reactance. Xc C

1 , then tan is ve i.e., is negative. In this C case, the alternating e.m.f. lags behind the current I by a phase angle . The a.c. circuit is then capacitance dominated circuit. 1 (c) When L = then tan = 0 i.e., = 0. C In the case, the alternating e.m.f. and current I are in phase. The a.c. circuit is then non inductive

At lower half power frequency 1, the circuit is capacitance Xc > XL. At upper half power frequency 2, the circuit is inductive XL > XC. The reciprocal of impedance is called admittance
_____________________ Slide 6 ______________________ _____________________ Slide 8 ______________________ Band Width:

An interesting characteristic of a series LCR circuit is the phenomenon of resonance. The circuit exhibits resonance, i.e., the amplitude of the current is maximum at the resonant 21 frequency, 0 = ( XL = XC ) . LC L I The quality factor Q defined by Q = 0 = is an R 0CR indicator of the sharpness of the resonance, the higher value of Q indicating sharper peak in the current. 1 (a) When L < , then tan is +ve i.e., is positive. C In this case, the alternating elm leads the current I by a phase angle . The a.c. circuit is then inductance dominated circuit.

R R R = 2 1 = 0 + 0 = 2L 2L L The band width is large R and small for small R. The band width does nor depends on C in the circuit (note that resonance frequency r does not depends on R while band width depends on R).
