3.1 First-Order RC Circuits

## Used for filtering signal by blocking certain frequencies and passing

others. e.g. low-pass filter
Any circuit with a single energy storage element, an arbitrary number of
sources and an arbitrary number of resistors is a circuit of order 1.
Any voltage or current in such a circuit is the solution to a 1st order
differential equation.

Summary
The Time Constant

For an RC circuit, = RC
For an RL circuit, = L/R
-1/ is the initial slope of an exponential with an initial value of 1
Also, is the amount of time necessary for an exponential to decay
to 36.7% of its initial value

## Ch3 Basic RL and RC Circuits

Summary
How to determine initial conditions for a transient circuit.
When a sudden change occurs, only two types of quantities
will remain the same as before the change.
IL(t), inductor current
Vc(t), capacitor voltage
Find these two types of the values before the change and
use them as the initial conditions of the circuit after change.

Initial

## 1) Draw the circuit for t = 0- and find v(0-) or i(0-)

2) Use the continuity of the capacitor voltage, or inductor current, draw
the circuit for t = 0+ to find v(0+) or i(0+)
3) Find v(), or i() at steady state
4) Find the time constant

For an RC circuit, = RC

## For an RL circuit, = L/R

5) The solution is:
