How to predict voltage of a dc inductor Draft #3

Presented by: [NAME REMOVED] Date: March 28th Proposed answer: the formula to pridict voltage in a dc inductor problem, are similar to that used for a rc circuit. V=Vf+(Vi Vf)e-Rt/l Source #1: V=Vf+(Vi Vf)e-Rt/l Where Vf and If are the final values of voltage and current, Vi and II, are initial values of voltage and current. The lowercase case italic letters, v and I are the voltage and current at time t. (Floyd, principles of electric circuits, p. 562) How this helps me answer the question: This helps answer my question by breaking down the formula. Recent: yes Reviewed by experts: yuppie Relevant: yes

Source #2 The formulas for the exponential current and voltage in a RL circuit are similar to those used in the last chapter for a RC circuit. The formula is V= Vf + (Vi-Vf)e Rt/L. (Floyd, principles of electric circuits, p. 566) How this helps me answer the question: This helps me define the formula and gives a brief on why the formula works. Recent: not sure Reviewed by experts: yes Relevant:yes How does my real-world experience contradict or support this? We know that we used this similar formula in caps! Clarity: not too much to be clear about! Cause: its a pretty straight forward formula ! Connections to the model: 5xrxL equals full charge time. Questions that need to be answered to accept this: Are we predicting on the primary side or the secondary side? p. 1 of 2
