Inductor Energy Storage

• Both capacitors and inductors are energy storage devices

• They do not dissipate energy like a resistor, but store and return it to the circuit depending on applied currents and voltages

• In the capacitor, energy is stored in the electric field between the plates

• In the inductor, energy is stored in the magnetic field around the inductor  Lecture 8

Behaviour of Simple RL Circuits

• Consider that the switch has been in the position shown for a long time so that no current is flowing.

• The switch moves to the other position at time t=0. What is the behaviour of the voltage, v, across the inductor?

Simple RL Circuit

Initially, there will be no current through the inductor because the inductor will create a voltage to oppose a step change in current. Hence a voltage of V s will initially appear across the inductor. As the current increases, the voltage across the inductor will decrease. Eventually, a steady current of V s /R will be reached and v will fall to zero.

After t=t we obtain 63.2% of the final current. After t=5t, we obtain 99.3% of the final current

Initial slope is I 0 /t. This is a quick way to estimate t on an oscilloscope.

Similarly, If we plot normalised voltage (fraction of supply voltage, V s ) across the inductor against time expressed in multiples of the time constant, t =L/R, we obtain the following graph.

After t=t we obtain 36.8% of supply voltage. After t=5t, we obtain 0.6% of the supply voltage 1
