Sinusoidal Response of RC Circuits

The capacitor voltage lags the source voltage Capacitance causes a phase shift between voltage and current that depends on the relative values of the resistance and the capacitive reactance

Impedance and Phase Angle of Series RC Circuits

The phase angle is the phase difference between the total current and the source voltage The impedance of a series RC circuit is determined by both the resistance (R) and the capacitive reactance (XC) (Z = 1/jC= jX ) (Z= R+Z = RjX )

Relationships of the I and V in a Parallel RC Circuit

The applied voltage, VS, appears across both the resistive and the capacitive branches Total current, Itot, divides at the junction into the two branch current, IR and IC Itot= V/Z
IC= V/(jXC) = V((XC+jR)/RXC)

IR= V/R

KCL in a Parallel RC Circuit

From KCL, Total current
(IS) is the phasor sum of the two branch currents

Since IR and IC are 90 out of phase with each other, they must be added as phasor quantities Itot = I2R + I2C = tan-1(IC/IR)

IC= V/(jXC)

Itot= V/Z = V((XC+jR)/RXC)

IR= V/R

KCL in a Parallel RC Circuit

Example: Determine the value of each current, and describe the phase relationship of each with the source voltage

IR = 12/220 = 54.5 mA IC = 12/150 = 80 mA Itot = (54.5)2 + (80)2 = 96.8 mA = tan-1(80/54.5) = 55.7
