Basic Motivation
Laplace transform converts differential
equations into algebraic equations, thus
making the solution process easier.

Just like phasors, Laplace transform is
used to transform the circuit from time
domain to frequency domain (s-domain),
obtain the solution, and apply inverse
transform to the result to go back to the
time domain.

Significance for Laplace Transform:

(1)It can be applied to wider variety of
inputs than the phasor analysis.
(2)It provides an easy way to solve circuit
problems involving initial conditions.
(3)It is capable of providing us, in one
single operation, the total response of the
circuit comprising both the natural and
forced responses.

2.1 Definition of Laplace Transform

s has the dimensions of frequency.
Lower limit is taken as 0- to indicate time before t=0.
This helps to capture any discontinuity at time origin.

It is assumed that f(t) is ignored for t < 0.

2.1 Definition of Laplace Transform
A function f(t) may not have a Laplace transform.
Integral in Eq. (1) must converge. The condition
for this is:




The region of convergence for the Laplace
transform is

In this region,F(s) exists.

criterion and have Laplace transforms.

Thus, there is no need to specify any

2.1 Laplace Transform
Generally, a look-up table is used for
obtaining the inverse Laplace transforms.
Functions f(t) and F(s) are regarded as a
Laplace transform pair where
