Lecture 5 Overview Alternating Current AC Components. AC circuit analysis Alternating Current pure DC

V pure direct current = DC Direction of charge flow (current) always the same and constant. pulsating DC V pulsating DC Direction of charge flow always the same but variable AC = Alternating Current pulsating DC V

V Direction of Charge flow alternates -V AC Why use AC? The "War of the Currents" Late 1880's: Westinghouse backed AC, developed by Tesla, Edison backed DC (despite Tesla's advice). Edison killed an elephant (with AC) to prove his point. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkBU3aYsf0Q Turning point when Westinghouse won the contract for the Chicago Worlds fair Westinghouse was right PL=I2RL: Lowest transmission loss uses High Voltages and Low Currents With DC, difficult to transform high voltage to more practical low voltage efficiently AC transformers are simple and extremely efficient - see later.

Nowadays, distribute electricity at up to 765 kV AC circuits: Sinusoidal waves Fundamental wave form Fourier Theorem: Can construct any other wave form (e.g. square wave) by adding sinusoids of different frequencies x(t)=Acos(t+) f=1/T (cycles/s) =2f (rad/s) =2(t/T) rad/s =360(t/T) deg/s RMS quantities in AC circuits What's the best way to describe the strength of a varying AC signal? Average = 0; Peak=+/ Sometimes use peak-to-peak Usually use Root-mean-square (RMS) (DVM measures this)

Definition of Capacitance: C=q/V Capacitance measured in Farads (usually pico - micro)

Energy stored in a Capacitor = CV2 (Energy is stored as an electric field) In Parallel: V=V1=V2=V3 q=q1+q2+q3 q q1 q2 q3 Ceq C1 C2 C3 V V i.e. like resistors in series Capacitors In Series: V=V1+V2+V3 q=q1=q2=q3 1 V V1 V2 V3 1

Definition of Inductance: vL(t)=-LdI/dt Measured in Henrys (usually milli- micro-) Energy stored in an inductor: WL= LiL2(t) (Energy is stored as a magnetic field)

Current through coil produces magnetic flux Changing current results in changing magnetic flux Changing magnetic flux induces a voltage (Faraday's Law v(t)=-d/dt) Inductors Inductances in series add: Inductances in parallel combine like resistors in parallel (almost never done because of magnetic coupling) An inductor in a DC circuit behaves like a short (a wire).
